Thanks for letting us know how it went. You have every right to be proud and emotional!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day .
Goodnight and pleasant dreams!

You guys still have a drive-in? That's super! Be sure to support it as often as you can. They are disappearing quickly around here. The closest drive-in is 60 miles away now.

When I was in HS, we went to the drive-in every Saturday night. It didn't even matter what was playing. I sure miss that place.
Yea it is about 5 Min from my house so it is pretty nice place to go when the weather is nice and when it is not that nice as well. Try and go at least once a month when i can.

I wish I were there to help you, Jennifer. If there is any research you would like for me to do, just let me know the subject. I feel so sorry for you, especially in light of the extra assignments. Remember to take of yourself! Take your vitamins and rest every minute you can! We are here for you!

Good morning, MMC!

I am sorry that I haven't been around much. I feel so out of the loop! I don't know what has been going on with anyone or how you all have been doing. Did everyone have a nice Easter? One holiday down means we're just getting closer to Christmas! I do feel really bad that I haven't been around. I miss everyone!

I have been so busy with college lately that it is just unreal. I would rather have a full-time job and work eight hours a day than deal with all of the work that I have right now. Typically I can handle a lot but it's crazy this month. I started a new class a month ago. This class only runs for half of the semester and it is supposed to be harder than any other class offered at my university. The class isn't horrible itself but the workload is so much. I have at least five assignments every week for that one class. My second class is also becoming very busy and I have three huge projects to complete by the end of April along with different assignments every week. Then I have my internship and it is keeping me very busy. I have to plan an enormous presentation, including a powerpoint, and present it to a board of staff members and professors at the end of the month. I haven't even had the time to start my presentation or the paperwork yet! The paperwork has to be approximately 25-30 pages. Lastly, and here is what I am mad about, my fourth class. In January, February, and March, I've only had eight assignments total. Now my professor is realizing that he doesn't have enough work in our gradebook. That led him to give us eight assignments in the next three weeks. Five of them are presentations! The last time I counted, which was sometime yesterday, I had over thirty assignments to do in just under three weeks. Sorry for the rant, but it's safe to say that I won't be having a social life for the next month. This is why I do not like April!

I think we all know what I will be spending my weekend doing! Does anyone have anything fun planned? At least the weather seems to be improving - hopefully we're all done with winter and onto some warmer weather! I feel like I've had 6-7 months of winter here!

Jennifer and Made: Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to help each other out. Made, you are to come to Jennifer's rescue whenever her neighbor appears. Jennifer, you are to do likewise, when Made's friend knocks on his door! There you go. Problem solved.

I have to act that way with my neighbor. If she sees me outside she rambles for over an hour or two while I'm standing there wishing that someone will save me.

She will be a senior next year and we will be going over her schedule. I do not plan on doing anything else today, I still feel kind of yucky from this cold.
I hope everyone has a great day!
Hope you get over the cold soon!
