So, it has been quite a while since I last wrote, but there has been so much going on since school has finished. I have gotten my grades and I'm glad to say I finished the year out with a 3.6! Now I don't have to think about grades until the fall, which will be my last semester at the University of Minnesota. Until then, I am working on the Minnesota Centennial Showboat all summer long.

I’m back at home for this summer and I’m glad for the much needed break. I had a fun and interesting semester, but a little rest and relaxation is just what I needed.
Tomorrow I start one of my internships and I’m getting ready to get back in to the swing of things and work. Being a political science major and in the school of journalism I am really excited to start as an intern for a state political party as a communications intern. It might be a lot of work, but it should be great experience.
School’s out for summer! Finals are over and my mind doesn’t need to worry about studying until July when I start up again with summer session. While I should be searching for summer employment, all I want to do is lie outside in the grass or run through the sprinklers like a five year old. This urge may have something to do with the fact that my apartment is not air-conditioned and is somehow hotter inside than it is outside. It seems sweating is inevitable.
I just finished taking my last final test and it feels greeeeat! However, the rush of final assignments, tests and papers that are due at the end of the semester can be a little overwhelming. Preparation is the best method to approach these fairly daunting tests. I personally try to buckle down and solely focus on my academics for the last couple weeks of the school year.
It's the end of spring semester! Who would have thought that it went so quickly? Studying for fall semester finals is so much easier to do- the weather in December is cold, and icky. Most people hibernate in their rooms, and have nothing better to do. But in the spring, all I want to do is be outside.
So I've turned in one final project, I have my next one due in less than a week, and I have two final exams left. It's hard to think that this semester is almost over... My first three years here have just flown past. I gotta say though, this weather has been making it extremely difficult to focus on doing anything. I try to spend as much time sitting outside on University Avenue.
Yesteday was the last class for my "Service Learing in the Chicano Community" course. It was a fun class. I took the course because it fulfills two electives towards my liberal education requirments: cultural diversity and public ethics. I was happy that I'll be done for the semester, but at the same time I felt sad for I'm gonna miss such a fun class.
