Life's comings and goings for another week

It seems like I haven't written in forever, when in fact it as only been just over a week. When time flies it just seems to disappear. I had intended to give an update earlier in the week but since my last post I have been fighting off a cold along with still trying to get all my work done on time.

So what's new you ask? Well I've finally hit midterm time. The next two weeks are going to be crazy. Midterms...papers...midterms...papers. My head is starting to spin just thinking about it. Hopefully my super organized plan that I laid out in my agenda is not going to fail me. I know when everything is due and have weighed what items needs more attention then others. One of the more fun assignments I had to work on was a presentation with my friend Alex for our Religion in Film class. We've worked our asses off to make sure that the class is entertained while we present the topics...but, class was cancelled because our prof got sick (profs are people too, and if I can be sick so can they). The fact that class was cancelled was a blessing in disguise I guess. We received a small mountain of snow last night so MtA was closed until noon today anyways. This gave me all day today to just sleep and recuperate some. It just means hopefully next week I will be completely cold free when it comes time to present. Even if I hadn't been sick today I doubt that I would have made my way down to campus today anyways. As a commuter whenever there is a storm you need to way the pros and cons of driving on the highway; I doubt I would have made the trip for one class this afternoon since I have friends who will make sure I am kept up to date with what's happening in the class.

What else happened this week? Well, since I am talking about highway driving I have two events that happened this week: first, Tuesday as I was driving along I had a coyote run in front of the car in the morning. He was far enough away that I didn't have to worry about hitting him, but it's the first time that I passed one on my way to school. Secondly, on Monday when I was on my way back to Moncton from my classes there was a car fire on the highway with cars backed up kilometers down the road. The reason I bring this event up is that there were so many people who stopped on the side of the highway to take picture, etc. As a daily commuter I don't like to see large groups of people pulled over for no actually reason except to be enthralled by someone else's pain. Outside of that not too much has happened. There was an ALOMA meeting on Monday and we are hopefully going to have some events coming up soon which is exciting and I totally forgot about Dr. Campbell's lecture in Brunton last Wednesday night; Jamie, my boyfriend, was even excited to go with me since he was talking about rock music.
I guess that's it. I'll try and get an update in during midterm mayhem.
Until then!

Even though I didn't make it to Dr. Campbell's lecture I did read the press release, and guess what? One of my favorite bands right now, the Ting Tings, is also one of his. Here's a video of them live...I think everyone should check them out.
