I'm sitting at my old kitchen table, with a stomach full of sweet and sour pork, college football on the television, Dad washing dishes, Mom in the family room, and I'm having flashbacks to senior year.

This is how I spent a lot of my last couple months at home (given it was college basketball, but I'm not complaining. Oregon is kicking butt regardless). Tonight, I plan on watching movies with my mom, maybe a late night Wal-Mart run for CHRISTMAS shopping and enjoying my last couple days in town.

Being home has been excellent, but I'm ready to get back to the craziness and amazing and completely unique atmosphere of Westmont. Two more weeks of classes, one week of finals and I'm done with my first semester of college. Wowza.

Not to say I'm already counting down the days till Christmas break, even though I am...I have a very jam-packed next two weeks before I can even think about finals rolling around. Christmas concerts, tree lighting, winter formal, choir concerts, dorm's going to be a very busy two weeks. I'm planning on making the most of it (as I usually do in all that I encounter) and finishing out my first semester of college with a bang.

But tonight, I relax. It's going to be a nice weekend, nice drive back to Santa Barbara, and a warm-up to get ready to head into this week with my head held high. Let's do this thing.

"I spent 6 years investing in this thing!!!"
