God, it’s been a long time. I’m not going to even try summarizing the past month, I’ll just write about the past couple weeks. Well, I was going to just talk, but now I need to rant. Next post, though.
Everything has been good, but busy, of course. During the last couple weeks, the TV club has had special editions of our shows. For Eastern Expedition, it was an administration episode, with the Vice President, head of facilities, and head of admissions playing the game. The President of the University came to watch, so that was cool. Then, last Thursday, we had a parents/friends day, where they could come to watch. My mom and aunt came, and we ate at Friendly’s afterward. So, that was cool.
Then, on Saturday, I had to work on a weekend for the first time. I volunteered to keep an eye on a special presentation playing on channel 22. I got there at 3:15 (Adam and Jess were editing an episode, so I was able to get in the building) and called the police at 3:30 to get the master control door open. They said they were switching shifts, but would send someone when that was done. Fifteen minutes passes, and noone. So, I call again. After initially not being able to find me, it took like 10 minutes for them to get there. So, the show went on a little late. Oh well; the higher ups were just happy it went on.
So, it’s now exam week. I’ve had three so far, with one more to go. I know I did pretty well on the first question for my first one in The Presidency last night, but I’m not sure I did so well on the second question. We’ll see, though. Then I had State and Local this morning…pretty sure I’ve aced that. Then I had my Western Civ exam. I think I didn’t do too bad there, either. I certainly did better than I thought I was going to. I was able to fill the whole blue book, and I don’t think I BSed my work, so that should contribute. Now I only have Culture and National Security on Friday. That one will be a toughy, since the class has a lot of theory involved. But, as long I use the three schools of international relations to explain my answers, I think I should do ok.
Less than three weeks until Greece! YES! I’ve got my itinerary for flight and hotel, so tickets should be following soon. Whether or not they’ll be electronic, or paper (meaning I have to come back here) remains to be seen.
