Hi! Yes, I'm still alive! Hahaha.

So, finally finished with my first year of college! Well technically, I finished two weeks ago, but either way.
And to be honest, it actually went by kind of quickly. I mean, in October/November, all I was doing was counting down the months every day, but I think it actually helped for me to be busy with classes because it kept my mind focused on something else.
So, it wasn't as terrible as I'd thought, but in my defense, I didn't have the best start. At least I never have to take math again. Huzzah!
Ended up with a B in astronomy, which I'll take cause with that teacher, I'm surprised I got a B period. B- in German, but I raised that from a much lower grade so I'm proud of that. B+ in psych, though that's cause I didn't do so well on the final, and A's in poetry and foundations of conflict resolution. Overall, I'm proud of myself.

Went to Washington D.C. last week. First time, and it was beautiful! Granted, I walked a lot (walked a mile to and from the subway each day cause the hotel was in Arlington) and it was a bit hot, and the subway was creepy, but I had a fun time. My sister made a lot of it unenjoyable, but I went to the Holocaust Museum, something I've wanted to do for years, and got many many things in the gift shop, and I went to the Museum of Crime and Punishment, which was fun too.

So now I am officially back. Well sort-of. My summer will probably be busy as well, but not nearly as busy as my school year was. I still can't believe I'm on vacation. The high school doesn't get out for a couple of weeks.

Well I hope everyone has been well. I think it's been a few years since I've been here, so I wouldn't know. ;)

Also, a random complaint: It is hot here. Last week before I left, it was cold, and now it is blazing hot. What the hell? :(

Thanks so much! I swear, making sure my grades are good will be the death of me. XD

Haha, it sounds bad to say, but I loved it so much. There was so much to take in, and it's worth a second trip!
Plus the gift shop is massive. ;)
