Today was the day of the midterm. It was the first test I've taken in quite a long time, but it didn't stress me out much. As she said, it was more of a formality than anything. It was done on the computer, and we got to type out the answers and print it out, which meant me and my 100-word-a-minute hands got done first in the class.
She's giving us next week off, meaning the only thing I have on my plate in the immediate future is my other course - the intensive daily one. I've had to come up with a problem at my school, conduct a research literature review about it, conduct interviews about it, then propose a solution. My presentation is Friday and the paper is due on Wednesday. Then, that course will be over. I'm hoping for an A in each course I'm taking so I'm going to really put a lot of work into this paper over the next few days.
In other news, I found a flight home to Michigan for just $143 last night. I leave on Friday, July 21 and return on Tuesday, August 1. I had plans to drive the ten hours up there, but I just couldn't pass up the deal. On Friday, I hope to see the Toledo Mudhens play. On Saturday and Sunday, I'll be seeing two Tigers games. On Monday, I'll be spending the day at Michigan State and hanging out with both the grandparents and college friends. And on Tuesday, I'll be going to South Haven, where I'll be spending a week or so on Lake Michigan beaches and my parents' boat with a book. Then, it's back to school on August 2 for incoming freshmen orientation, then up to Columbus on August 5 for my friends' wedding, then back down here on August 6 for more orientating. The rest of the summer is mapped out.
