How has this quarter gone by so fast? It’s week eight already, and honestly I still think it was yesterday when I came back to PUC. I love seeing old friends again, but I hardly get to see them since I’m always studying for my classes. However, I think this quarter was very eventful.

I started to really get into my science courses. I’m currently taking organic chemistry, physics with calculus, systems physiology, and a survey of British literature. Not only are these classes intense, but each one is definitely time consuming. So many people have asked me, “Brandon, what classes are you doing this quarter?” and I tell them. I laugh inside when I see their reactions. Surprisingly, I’m doing extremely well in all my classes.

This week started out as an extremely bad week since I found out my friend’s mom passed away Sunday night. It really rattled my mind since she was like a second mother to me, but I’m just glad she is no longer in the pain that she felt for the past several weeks. This is the trouble with being thousands of miles away from home: I don’t have the ability to go home as freely as I want to. But this event makes me thankful for my own parents and friends I have made over the past couple of years. This is especially important to me since we are coming into the Thanksgiving season next week.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and hopefully they eat a lot of turkey (or tofurkey)!
