Well, it has been quite a while since I last posted to the blog. There is a lot I could add today, but I'll stick to the most recent events.
First, I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but it has gotten COLD outside. I notice there are more people riding the campus connectors.
While I "roughed it" by walking over the Washington Avenue Bridge today, there was a lot more elbow room than usual. When the temperatures go down it seems like every student finds ways to stay inside so I end up running into more friends than normal because we are all using the same tunnels in the Gopher Way!
Second, with the colder weather comes mid-terms. I have been lucky this year because half of my classes involve performance work, so they don't have mid-terms. And I have been able to arrange study sessions around campus (usually Coffman or the Rarig Center) with other students in my class. We usually go over review sheets together and then go to the Professor or the Teaching Assistant during their office hours for clarification.
Hopefully, this system will work once again and I will be able to celebrate Thanksgiving knowing that I've got the first half of the semester in the bag!
