Ah, I can't believe my idea of posting once a week just sort of fell apart. Ah, well. I suppose that's what happens when you become unbelievably busy.

I am just at the end of my first week of spring break and it's been fairly relaxing so far. Within this next week I hope to start making notes for two of the exams. I know that exams seem like they are forever away, but in reality after these next two weeks I only have four weeks of class and another two weeks of exam digest. So, eight weeks in all. And for four of those weeks I will be busy with school work. It really seems like the best idea.

My practical this past semester was a lot of fun. I mean, it was dense and difficult to understand at times, but it was fun. And my adviser was so helpful. A big difference from last semester. The report was due in the day before spring break started (along with another essay; thank you psychology department) so now I'm just waiting on my grade. I'd like to think that I put in a lot of effort and might get a decent grade. But again, dense subject.

The funniest thing about this practical is that I'm seriously considering doing this kind of thing for my dissertation. Mostly because I really enjoyed working with the adviser and think I could work well with her on my dissertation. Even if it is a dense subject, having an adviser that is a good communicator makes all the difference.

That's right. I am official choosing dissertation advisers. It's a fairly scary prospect especially when I look at how quickly this past year has gone. I wouldn't say it's been the best year, in fact it's been difficult for multiple different reasons. But it's almost over and my last year is about to begin. I don't know, I'm ready to be done with University. I'm ready to start looking at what I want to do with my life. But the thought of leaving here is a little daunting. But nothing is holding me to the UK...ah, I suppose I really have a whole year to think about where I am going to live. Still, a year isn't that long.
