I can't believe that Christmas Break is over! I had just gotten used to the idea of sleeping in, and all the scrumptious food Mom and Dad made... Packing up my car and buying new school books was something I put off to the last minute, but once I hauled everything up to my room, organized my desk, restocked my bookshelf and fridge, I felt like I was actually ready for classes to start.

Seeing my friends helped me ease back into the school mode, too. We talked about trips they went on, Christmas presents, and New Year's celebrations. Before my last night of freedom came to a close, I decided that since it's a new year and a new quarter, I should change the way I approach school. I decided to try to stay organized, avoid my tendency to procrastinate, and achieve amazing grades. Hopefully I will maintain this resolution come mid-February.

The first day of classes started out with cold weather and rain. I was a little nervous about some of my classes. (I had heard some horror stories about a certain teacher, but I feel like I can handle myself if I stick to my resolution.) Other than classes, I am looking forward to a few things this quarter, like the Business Club's ski weekend and intramural basketball. Also, the SA is planning an ice skating trip, and the women's and men's basketball teams have games next week. Anyways, I just want to say I'm grateful for both my parents nursing their college student back to health - because of them, I am ready to face winter quarter.
