So coming back to PUC this time after vacation wasn't so bad. The weather lightened up and I actually stopped wearing several layers and put my scarves away, but apparently it was too early for that. This past week has been somewhat cold and rainy but it's nice because I had begun to miss the rain. Don't get me wrong, it has not been freezing, but for someone from Anaheim, anything under 55 degrees Fahrenheit is freezing! Oh well.

This spring quarter seems to have good things in store, considering I love my classes this quarter. I'm just getting used to having some of my mornings off and it's nice to be able to sleep in some days. I'm also beginning to get into the routine of a new schedule. I bought a planner last quarter, but currently I don't know where it is - probably under the bed or under the pile of last quarter's books. So much for staying organized!

I do keep track of my classes; not having a planner has led to constantly scrambling to find the syllabus. I have come up with a solution though: keep them all in the same place and put them back! What a concept for a second-year college student. But I actually like my classes, so I'm motivated to finish my assignments - and not five minutes before class, which most of us on the campus are guilty of once in a while.

I especially like my persuasive communication class from Professor Chase; we get to present some speeches in his class. I am also looking forward to speaking this Saturday for our student week of prayer. I'm glad my parents will get a chance to see me, and come for a visit.

I am already busy and it is only the second week of the quarter. Today I had a small break and will soon go to the first Senate meeting of the new quarter, and hopefully we'll get to hear some new bills for the improvement of the campus.

Summer's coming soon and I'll be home for a while… except when I'm in Italy for Honors.
