I’m Back!

Sorry I haven’t written for so long! I will use the typical blogger excuse and blame my crazy schedule for my absence! 😉

While I was taking a break from blogging I enjoyed holiday gatherings with my family, countless hours at work, and overeating yummy food. My winter break was just what I needed to relax and prepare for another busy semester of college. I also enjoyed having two snow days during the first week of class! Snow days are one of the many reasons why I love Michigan and one of the only reasons why I tolerate winter.

I took my God-brother and sister, Jordan and Riley, to the arcade for some post-Christmas fun!

Classes started two weeks ago so I am back in my dorm. It took a long time for the heat to turn back on after break so the first few nights here I froze to death. But now I am settled back in to college life and starting to get used to my super heavy work load. This semester I am taking Business Statistics, Macro Economics, Business Driven Info Tech, Accounting Two, and Geology of National Parks and Monuments. This is also my very last semester as a Pre-Business Student! After this semester I will officially be accepted into the College of Business where I can pursue my major, Electronic Business Marketing. I will be done with my General Business minor after this semester too!! I am super excited to see where my future takes me!

Well, that’s all for now! I promise that I will be back soon with more updates!

Dean’s List and More

On Saturday my mom graduated with her master’s degree in Public Administration! She has been working on it for five and a half years. On top of going to school my mom also works full time and has two kids and a husband to take care of. My mom never missed a school conference, a flute recital, or a band concert. She was always able to do it all and I am so grateful to have such a wonderful mom!

Graduation was really long but it was fun seeing my mom walk across stage and get her diploma! Afterwards my family went to take pictures with President Dunn and then went to dinner at a fancy restaurant. I had a great day celebrating my mom and all of her accomplishments!

In other news, today I found out that I made the Dean’s List for this semester! This means that I received a 3.5 or higher GPA! I am so excited that all of my hard work paid off! The rest of the day I watched a little Netflix, did some laundry, and went Christmas shopping with my mom.

I am ending my night watching a Mickey Christmas movie and drinking an egg nog shake! Happy Holidays everyone!
