Last night, I had a really hard time falling asleep! It was one of those nights where I just wasn’t tired – (sometimes I think that I have too much energy!) When my alarm went off at 6am, my bed felt usually nice, warm, and cozy, but I had to get up for Reading class. It went pretty quickly today, halleluiah, and since next Monday is the Queen’s Birthday, it was my last Reading class in New Zealand! :-O
Things are seriously winding down! I finished my Maori essay about the Treaty of Waitangi that has been looming over me like a dark, boring, un-motivating cloud for a few weeks now.
I ADORED checking that one off my list!
Maori Leader Presentation
- Present Maori Leader Presentation
Maori Treaty of Waitangi Essay
- Maori Leadership Personal Reflection Paper
- UVM NZ Internship Reflection Paper (things are gonna get pretty reflective around here!)
- Math Unit Lesson Planning Project
- Study and Take Maori Culture Final Exam
It may look like I have a lot more to do, but that’s an optical illusion. The presentation will be a breeze, the reflection papers will be easy to write, the math planning will be easy (if not a bit tedious), and I feel well-prepared for the final exam. Last two weeks of school….bring it! So I spent the afternoon getting some work done. Life is fabulous 😉
I was very excited to get this TwitPic from my cousin Anne who attended my brother’s graduation from Brown University with the family. (Note: She just graduated, too! From Syracuse University!) Her caption was: “I’m stealing your family. Wish you were here!” Check out the crowd, at Cinderella Portuguese Restaurant in Fall River, MA. Isn’t she lucky!?
I have some comments, as I very often do: Mom and Gram L., I very much appreciate that you are raising your glass of sangria to me 😉 Paula and Gramps, look over here! Dad, you are the essence of DiddsterMagic. Sam, I like your outfit! Anne, I wish I was there, too! And David, CONGRATS!!
Also, I discovered my new obsession: The Vegan Zombie
I have a big crush on him now because
- He is a vegan.
- He cooks delicious vegan food.
- He makes me laugh.
- He has a tattoo of autumn foliage and pumpkins.
Who do you have a crush on?
