Spring Break

I've had a very enjoyable Spring Break.

I went to California for a week and spent some time with my cousin, Kayloni, and met her boyfriend, Darin, and a bunch of their friends. I also got to see a friend that has transferred out there (PUC) from Andrews.

I got to enjoy some warm, sunny weather while I was there and even managed to get a little bit of color. We went off-roading in a Range Rover and were joined by 2 pick-up trucks and 2 jeeps. It was VERY bumpy but quite fun. Towards the end of the adventure we stopped at a look out spot called "Inspiration Point". It was really pretty, it looked over a valley and off in the distance you could see a body of water. It was a little foggy out but you could see the starts really clearly! It was beautiful.

Sabbath we spent a couple of hours at the beach :) it was a little chilly and windy but I was just happy to get to spend some time there! Saturday night we went out for supper before going to the planetarium (Darin, Nicole, and Zack ((a couple of their friends)) had to go for a class). It was fun and Kayloni and I learned quite a bit.

I managed to get some photo editing done and a little bit of other homework completed before I left on Wednesday for Michigan.

Thursday, Marissa and I stopped in to Andrews for a couple minutes so I could do a couple things I needed to. Yesterday, we slept in and hung out most of the day then we went to visit a friend of mine, Cara, in Indiana. We spent the night there and stayed until the early evening. We drove the few hours back and went out for a later supper before coming back to the house and relaxing a bit.

Tomorrow I head back to NY and Monday starts work again. It never seems like break is long enough but at this point I'm just greatful I got one! I'll try to post some pictures from the trip soon... Marissa and I are going into the studio to shoot a little before I leave so maybe I'll be able to post some of those too :)

Junk Night

I'm on supervision this weekend and for the Saturday Night Activity we did "Class Clash - Junk Style". Students were to bring as much "junk" as the could to their designated corner of the gym. Mr. Raymond and Adam B. called out one item at a time and whichever class got the item to the mat in the center of the gym got that point. The activity ended around 10 and I helped Mr. Raymond kick they girls out (the guys got to stay and play soccer for a while).

I drove around to the dorm to pick up Karolline for the night. Then we went to pick up Jodi. I informed the girls that I was in desperate need of a junk food fix. They both agreed that that would be fine by them. So, we went to Auburn. We went to Blockbuster and rented 3 movies and then went to Wal-mart and bought a bunch of "junk"!

I put a pizza in the oven after getting back to the house, and the girls set up the air mattress in the living room. We started watching the first movie and started pigging out! I started dozing during the second movie and completely missed the entire third movie. I spent the night on the couch! It wasn't a very good sleep but it was sleep none the less. I woke up once feeling this terrible pain in my ear and couldn't get it to go away. I did get back to sleep and then next time I woke up I awoke to "Sissy? Its 10:00..." My eyes flashed open and panic set in. For a few seconds my mind screamed at me "YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE CAFE!!!!!!!!!!!!! THERE'S NO FOOD AND THE KIDS ARE GOING TO BE SOOOOOOOO MAD!!!!!!!!! YOU ARE SUPER LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I then realized that I'm only on supervision and could get there within a matter of minutes. I ran upstairs and threw on some pants and a hoodie and off I went.

I made it to brunch within a couple minutes and after kicking all the kids out at about 10:40 headed back home for a couple hours. And now.... here I sit... in study hall... I think its more of a punishment for me then it is for them! Then comes rec and supper then.... FREEDOM!
