Today I got an A on my math exam. I do not believe I have gotten an A in math since probably middle school. It was definitely a time for celebration. Then I got back to the dorm only to find that a friend needed help replacing a flat tire. So we got a bunch of us out there and ended up fixing two cars. It was cold, but it shows the family vibe we have on our floor. I am very happy with how things turned out, these are people I know I can count on. We try to build on the good vibe by everyone having a meal with each other at least once a week. I remember when I was younger my mother insisted on us having a sit down family dinner as much as possible with everyone there. I think that really contributed to how much I got along with my folks and little brother. It is a policy I will try to implement if I become an RA next year, which I will be shooting for.
In hopes of keeping up with the international theme of this blogs origin, I have applied to spend a summer once again in the Arab world studying Arabic. I have no idea if I am going to be accepted, but really hope so. In other news a Drake trip has been pre-approved for next summer to the Middle East with Dr. Hamad, or resident Arab. I enjoy his teaching and registered for one of his classes today. I will be taking World Politics, Psych+lab, Macro Econ, Arabic, PT, and another army class. Tonight there is a comedian on campus again, so we are going to check that out.
