Interterm has finished up, the break between Interterm and second semester was, as usual, unsatisfyingly short, and our new classes have been in session for about a week. As previously mentioned, I was in BIFL for Interterm. It was really an enjoyable experience. For Interterm break, I visited by boyfriend Ben in San Francisco, where he is doing Voluntary Service with an organization that houses homeless people. We walked all over San Francisco, up and down hills, across the Golden Gate Bridge, across the Pacific beach, and through many of the distinctive neighborhoods in the city. It was a really wonderful time, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
This semester should be pretty easy for me. It’s my last one, so I hope to be able to make the most of it. I’m in Computers in the Sciences, Anatomy and Physiology, three seminar classes, and Mennonite Life, History, and Thought. The Mennonite class looks like it will be the most interesting by far. I grew up in the traditions of the Mennonite faith, but I’m really glad to have the opportunity to explore them more thoroughly in the upcoming weeks. I also plan to present my senior seminar project this semester, which means that I need to start writing it soon! But all in all, it looks like this final stretch will be pretty pleasant and hopefully free of as much stress as possible.
