R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me!

The past few weeks have made me crazy, happy, scared, anxious, amazed, frustrated, curious, and most recently, totally grateful. I'll go topic by topic to outline just all the roller coaster happenings in my life.

Friends: My friends and I don't spend as much time together as a group anymore, mainly because we're all busy with our own things. Ciara and I have had crazy volunteer schedules, mixed in with intense class studies. Spread this out among four girls and the timing just doesn't work out well. The girls and I got to spend a lot of quality time together on our 10 day Spring Break trip. We started out in Kansas City, MO at Ciara's house, then headed to Pepper's house in Oklahoma, and finally wound up back in Arkansas at my house. It was so cool and funny to see every one's "at home" lifestyle. So many funny adventures and pictures from that trip!!

Boyfriend: Things with Nathan and I are going extremely well. He's helped me embrace even more of my inner nerd. It's awesome to watch Star Wars, joke about Big Bang Theory, and just geek out in general. It's going to be hard over the summer, but technology makes it pretty easy to keep in contact.

Finals: So the most stressful week of the semester is coming up, and I have to do well on tests to keep up good grades. I only have to keep only one A and I've already covered it to keep the GPA to stay in Honors College. I definitely am worried about World Civ because my teacher is crazy random about grading. I have two tests back to back on Saturday and my Cal II final on Thursday. It'll be crazy studying this weekend!

Summer: So far my summer plans are to take a class or two at UAFS and I have a job as a checker at Harp's. I'll not only have more money to spend and put away for the fall, but less time to hang around and use up all my money. I'm not for sure about a vacation, or even if I'll be able to take one, especially with having to ask for some days off at the beginning of the summer. Speaking of, the first few weeks of my summer, which begins in 8 days, will be exciting. My sister is expecting her baby the week after I get out, and my brother will be getting married at the end of the month. Two new family members in less than a month!!

Next fall: Perhaps the most exciting news about my Sophomore year is that I have a job! I'll be working as a Reid Hall Respect Intern, and I get free room and board. My class schedule is pretty awesome as well. Two math classes, and none of my classes start before 10:30 and end by 4:30.

So crazy, so fast, so little time!
