It's hard to believe we're already in the month of febuary, how time flies. I started my spring semester classes last week on Thursday and it should be a pretty good semester. I'm taking Culture of Japan (something I've very passionate about) and everything he's talked about so far I know. Though that'll end soon and we have our first quiz on Thursday. Textiles is a little boring to me, but easy so far. Contemporary family relations is pretty interesting and it should be interesting.
Abnormal Psychology is very interesting. So far we've covered the basics and we're hitting the history of abnormal psychology and what it is. I have an assignment I'm working on now where we identify celebrities and real people who have done 'abnormal' things like Britney shaving her head and Cho (VA TEch shooter) and where their behavior fits in be it expected, bizzare, odd etc. I'm trying to think of more but so far I have Britney Spears (head shaving), Michael Jackson (Baby Dangling), Yates (killing five children) and Cho. What abnormal and bizzare behaviors can you think of from celerities to everyday joes?
Classes aside, we've been getting a lot of snow in the past week. We got a good bit last week and yesterday was our biggest yet! I was out shopping with two of my friends and then we noticed it was snowing harder and harder. We got into the car (at least we got cute socks right?) and soon there was a decent dusting on the ground and it kept snowing. Even on our way to a religious event last night it was coming down. When we left there were around 50+ students in the mall (basically the giant area between all the buildings) throwing snowballs and building snowmen. On my way to lunch I'm going to take some pictures, it's still so pretty out.
With febuary here, Spring is just around the corner. I'm hoping for an early spring. I do love the snow, but spring is what I live for. I want to see the flowers and trees bloom, the clear blue skies and days when the sun shines and the weathers perfect. I've done some spring cleaning already this year, but it won't really get done until May when I go back home for the summer. So thinking ahead into febuary, here's what I hope to get done this month;
- Earn $100 this month on gather
- Repair/hem all my clothes that are in my growing pile of socks and clothes to be fixed (seriously, one sock ripped the first time I wore them)
- Maintain an A in all of my classes
- Get some kind of job/work/save money-I've been offered a paid tutoring job though I'm still waiting for more info and I'm babysitting next weekend.
- Finish my wall collage-The girl who had my room before me went...um psycho and so there's weird writing all over the walls and I'm making a collage of events and my accomplishments as well as photos.
I think that's it for my goals aside from beating and watching some movies & games, finding a new hairdresser and other odds and ends.
What are your goals for Febuary?
