Hi everyone. Before the update, I have a quick poll for you.
Happy Merry Christmahanukwaanzikah. Yeah, I know you've seen that commercial. Anyway, I hope everyone had a good holiday season. My family celebrated Christmas today. It was ok. I still don't like the holiday. I bought presents, but was barely able to buy them. I had a limit of about 10 dollars. I felt my presents were lame, but my family seemed to like them. So, I guess it was a success. I can't wait until I have a real job and can afford to spoil my family.
As you can see from the poll, I'm sick again. I started to feel it just after final exams. In fact, the day after finals were over I got the sore throat that starts all my colds. I tried taking the Cold-Eeze drops that Lauren sent me to help kick the cold faster, but it hasn't really helped. In fact, I'm fairly certain I've got another infection. I must be more susceptible to sinus/nasal infections. I'm thinking about seeing a doctor this week. I might as well since the insurance deductible starts over again on the First. Better get it in before then.
The end of school went pretty well after I finally finished my papers and other miscellaneous crap. Finals were pretty easy. I ended up with a 3.58 for the semester. I think that's pretty good considering how busy I was. Despite missing two assignments in my database class, I still managed to get an A. I don't know exactly how I pulled that off. My gender class I also got an A in. Speech I got a B+, and then I got a B in Interpersonal Communication. I could have gotten an A in that class, but it was just so dull. I had no desire to try.
I dropped my resume off with the person that could be my future boss. Yes, that means I have officially applied for the open Media Specialist position. My resume looks great. My cover letter looks great. So do my references. I made one mistake...I forgot to hand sign the cover letter. I laughed about that with my dad later. I'm going to do a follow up this week and call the person to see if I can get an interview. Hopefully I wont be incredibly nasal and sick still.
I'm excited about the newspaper stuff lately. The article that was published about me last year that took up the entire back page of the school paper....yeah, it won first place in the state newspaper association awards. That's awesome. I'm so proud of Allison (the author). I also made the news again after the whole board of regents meeting I did a few weeks ago. They quoted me extensively. I thought that was cool too.
Let's see...for Christmas I got Spiderman 2, a new pretty watch, earrings, and a whole bunch of clothing. I'm not complaining about any of it, nor will I exchange any of it. I helped pick out most of the clothes. I didn't expect the watch. It's a Relic watch and has an irridescent face. I love it. I feel so spoiled. My parents can't afford to buy all us kids presents. I'm grateful though. I needed what I got. God knows I have no money to get clothing.
Anyway, I should get to bed. I need to rest so I can get better. Oh, one last thing...I'd have to say the thing I hate the most about having a cold is the sinus infection that follows. Ok, good night everyone.
