I'm still here

Well I thought I would post just to say I am still here. Here are some not so recent pictures I took at the park near my apartment a couple months ago, just to brighten up the post.
Since I haven't updated in over a month, I don't really know what to say. Nothing major has happened - no babies, no proposals, no trips to Israel, etc. Umm...I did finish my third semester of grad school over a week ago. Only one more to go! I did well this past semester (still have my 4.0!) and am now enjoying the chance to relax some. Finishing this semester was such a relief...that is one thing I will miss about school, getting these nice breaks. I have five weeks of no school! Now I am "just" working at Americana, which seems like a vacation, and putting a few hours in at my practicum that will count toward spring semester. Oh I do have one thing that I don't think I have said on here - I am going to Germany and Italy in March!! It is a two week trip with my school and counts for 3 credit hours (an elective). That means I only have to take three classes next semester instead of four, and I get to go to Europe. So it seemed worth taking out extra loans :) One less class means more time to work, so I guess that balances things out somewhat. I am looking forward to graduating in May and entering the "real" world. I am still not sure what I will be doing after I graduate, so I guess I will start looking into that soon...but I'm not that concerned, things always seem to work themselves out.
So anyways, I am still enjoying life, especially now that I have a lot less stress for five weeks. I am making the most of it. I will be going home to Ohio on the 22nd through New Years (not sure where I will be for New Years yet). The big holiday party at Americana is the 21st so I have to work through that. Bluffton girls - I hope we can arrange some way to all get together over the holidays. It would be great to see everyone -especially Reba!! Let's try and work something out.
That's all for now. I'll try to update more regularly and have more interesting posts :)
Oh yeah, I saw two interesting movies this past week (now that I have time to do those kind of things!) The Kite Runner and What Would Jesus Buy? I would reccomend both of them, especially the second. It has a good message, even though not delivered in a way that would make people take it seriously....but, you should check it out.
