Yes, I am finished with the first block of my Spanish this semester. Spanish 101 is done with and Spanish 102 has begun. I even got 100% on my final oral exam. Woo hoo. Spanish is hard though. But at least I'm halfway done. Anyway, just thought I'd mention that. Other than that everyone who's reading this and actually knows me should come to my Halloween Party! If you need details just leave a comment with someway to reach you and I'll give you the info. I love Halloween!

School is so time consuming. No one tells you that when you begin college, it is almost all you can do. I work a measly 10 hours a week, and the rest is usually spent going to class or doing homework. Learning another language is quite hard. I don't really enjoy it. Spanish is great and I'm glad that eventually I will be able to speak it fluently, but I have a long way to go. The grammar is very hard to remember, but I'll get through it. I've been reading the His Dark Materials series. I LOVE it. But when I told my sister this she got this weird look on her face and then said "Didn't the Church say you shouldn't read that?" And I'm like "WHAT? Hmm... I remember getting a email saying that is was completely atheist, etc. so I shouldn't watch it, but that wasn't a Church press release." But she was still thinking that I'm a devil or something. Honestly people... I'm almost done with the first book and I'm not questioning my beliefs yet. Well, I love it still, and don't think there's anything wrong with it. Anyway, now I have to go do some Philosophy and ponder the classic "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a noise?" question, and have to think that if there is no ear to hear the noise, then perhaps it doesn't make a noise, but who even knows? I am no philosopher and I've never pretended to be. Oy vey.
