This week is going to be a tough one, and what a great way to start this week off with my job at the admissions office. I started off my day at 7 o'clock in the morning; I took a shower, drank a few cups of coffee, and then walked to work (listening to "Beautiful Day" by U2 on my ipod). When I got to work I started on my regular work day duties. The only thing that is giving me negative energy is my Spanish oral exam at 10:30. Yes, I studied, but talking in front of my professor for 15% of my Spanish grade makes me so nervous! We will be tested on everything from preterit form to future form to conditional form. Along with these three we will have to know appropriate vocabulary from the chapter and two other forms for the verbs. We are also working on a script for a Spanish TV show episode that we have to perform. To prepare for it he had Michael, one of the University of Minnesota Rochester faculty members, do some acting exercises. Michael taught a great class and has great acting skill because he performs in some of Rochester community plays. Hopefully, with lots of studying and practice my group and I will do well during our Spanish performance. As for today is concerned, I hope I do well on my Spanish oral exam! Wish me luck. Oh, and have a great Valentine's Day.
