Famous Last Words For Week 13

This is going to be my final Famous Last Words post for this class.  I am ahead of schedule and should be finishing up Indian Epics this week!  People thought I was crazy when I spent the last week of winter break working on all the assignments I could before this semester even started, but look at me now. Haha.  I can't believe my junior year is almost over.  Time really does fly by.  What in the world am I going to do when I'm not going to school anymore?!  How can you just stop going to school for forever...

Anyways, to finish this class I just have to do one more revision of my storybook.  I'm so happy to complete it!  The entire story was just a tiny idea and then it snowballed into something I'm truly proud to claim I wrote.  (Because there are some writings I am not proud to claim that I wrote.)  If you're curious click on this link to check out my storybook.  It combines the Greek mythology character of Persephone with the story of Sita being trapped in Lanka! 

This past week I was so lazy I barely got any homework done.  However, I did have a lot of fun with my friends!  I can't believe I'm about to leave all of these people for an entire summer.  I'll miss them so much.  Below is a picture during one of the nights my friends and I went out.

I'm so glad that I made a bunch of these posts.  I know in the future I'll be happy to look back at them and see my old college days through my own words.  It's hard to keep up with a diary or something but these extra credit posts gave me the motivation to actually do them!  Hopefully, I will do some more of these posts next semester in Mythology and Folklore.  Until next time my friends.

Famous Last Words for Week 11

The eleventh week of the semester has come to a close!! Only a few more weeks to go before I finish my junior year at OU.  This week was absolutely beautiful!  However, during the weekend the weather turned pretty chilly and a little rainy. 

I came home this weekend to celebrate Easter and my mother's birthday with my family.  My older sister even drove up from Austin to see us.  I haven't seen her since Christmas!  Austin is about a 7.5 hour drive, if anyone was curious. 

I spent most of the weekend with my family since we don't get to all be together very often.  On Saturday we drove downtown to eat dinner at a trendy restaurant with a nice patio and then went to an old fashioned bowling alley! 

Even though my sister and I are pretty much adults now, our parents still put on an Easter egg hunt for us!  Except this time there was more than just candy in the eggs, there was MONEY!  This was the first time they had ever put money in them and let's just say we were a lot more competitive this year compared to last year.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to pull off a victory like I did last year and my sister found more eggs than me...  Oh well I still got free money.  Below is a picture of my family enjoying Easter Sunday.

 The semester has started to wind down, so I haven't been slammed with nearly as much homework as I have had these past few weeks.  It came at just the right time because I got to spend a lot of quality time with my family. 

This next week I'll be trying to get ahead in my classes while also finishing up this class.  But I am already enrolled in Mythology and Folklore, so I will be with other students from this class next semester!
