So midterms are FINALLY over! Hooray! That's DEFINITELY not to say that I don't have tons of work left to do, but it can all wait at least a couple of days, and that's precisely what I plan on! As I told Nattie, I'm not even going to OPEN my backpack tonight! I might try and go over to Blockbuster and rent a movie for my movie review though, and maybe I'll watch it while Nattie's in her late class today. I'm pretty sure that the topic I think fit in with the movies I picked is due next Friday so I should really get a jump on that. After that, I only have 2 more papers for 493, 1 paper and 1 "take home final" for 475, 1 more exam, 1 lab, and the consultant's challenge for 315 and 1 exam and that movie review for 421. So, let's see... that's..... only 8 things left to do!!!! Plus a bunch of reading. Anyways, I'm just glad that the weekend from hell is over! I worked Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday and had midterms on Tuesday and Wednesday! I haven't really relaxed in almost a week, except for a little last night! I'm so sleepy though, and so excited to sleep in on Friday!
The most exciting thing happened yesterday though! Last week, Kristen called me from work and asked if I wanted her to put my name in the hat to go to this training thing for Tourism Alberta (customer service is getting into the tourism stand business), and I said yes of course! I also told her that I didn't want to step on anybody's toes or anything, and she said it was fine. Then, on Sunday at BEST training, Brenda mentioned that she was going to choose the people to go by seniority, so I was like, very cool, Amanda and Katie or someone will go and they'll have fun! I was totally fine with it though! So, yesterday, Amanda called me from work and said, "don't worry, I'm not asking you to come in, I just have good news for you" and I had NO clue what the news was, and then she told me that I'm going to Edmonton for the training thing with her! WAY COOL! We'll have so much fun! And Amanda is thinking of driving up there herself and so we'll just have so much fun! It's 4 days too, which is way cool! It's May 1-4, which means that I leave more than a week after my last final and come back more than a week before Spring semester starts, so it'll be the perfect little vacation (plus work training) ever! Anyways, I'm super excited and I feel special that she picked me! I have no idea how that happened, but I'm excited for it for sure!!!!
Also, I have 2 new tutoring students this semester! A just came for the first time yesterday and is so awesome! She's a friend of N's, from last semester! And the other girl who started last week is really young and seems pretty fun so far. She (M) is coming tonight to see me and hopefully we'll have lots of fun! She's only in grade 7, which is not as much fun as highschool, but it should be a good time!
I think that's all for now! I feel like I have other good school-related news but I guess not. :)
