Pre-Spring Break Jitters!

Hey Y’all!

This past weekend was my nephew’s fifth birthday. He is such a happy kid. His parents had his birthday party at “Chi Chis” (Chuck E. Cheese’s) as he calls it. It was so much fun I never had as much fun at a child’s birthday party. All of his friends and cousins really enjoyed themselves; they had a lot of room to play and to just be kids. Also, as I found out they LOVE pizza it kind of reminds me of the Ninja Turtles. Coming from a very fun weekend it was a little had to refocus this week.

This week is the week before Spring Break. The excitement is noticed around campus. Everyone has exams or projects due this week. For others like me we have a little bit of everything. My group and I had a presentation about our final project. I really like it, it’s a mix of engineering, marketing and business. The project shows a lot of promise and it could even work in a real life scenario.

Yesterday, after my presentation I went to the CHANCE Ambassador FUN-A-THON, it was really fun and a lot of people went.  I was one of the Ambassadors who planned it. I wish I could have been there for the entire time. There were karaoke, games, and food what more can we ask of an event? It was a very proud moment to walk into a packed event.

Along with papers and presentations, today I have my second Linear Algebra exam. My first exam went well but not good enough. I have really been trying really hard to get an even better score than the first exam.

Enjoy Spring Break! I‘ll be in Kentucky (I haven’t packed YET and I leave TOMORROW)!

Have an AWESOME Week!
