My Full Semester

I thought I should give a brief outline of what my semester is looking like. I'm taking 18 hours this semester, which is lower than usual but seems harder because they are all upper-division classes. They include 3 business courses (Management Information Systems, International Economics, and Free Enterprise Studies), 2 French classes (French Through Popular Culture and French Civilization), and only 1 religion class (Christian Worship). So far that last one is my favorite but also one of the harder ones. It's my favorite because the professor, Dr. Bolger, is one of the wisest men I've ever met yet retains his humility and gentle spirit. It's also the most challenging to me in my personal life. I've been learning a lot, but I'll try to have a full post on that at some time in the future.

In addition to all of my classes, I'm also still President of the French Club, a member of RotoAct, and a French tutor at the Foreign Language Lab. I've also picked up two Bible Studies (The Truth Project and a French language one here on campus), and I attend First Baptist Church in Branson (but still visit other churches in the community). Lastly, I'm in the process of getting an internship for the summer that is taking a lot of time in paperwork, research, etc. I did a quick calculation and found that I only have about 5 hours of time not taken up with studying, classes, club & activities, work, sleep, or eating per week. That's Sunday evening through Friday afternoon. By the time Friday evening/Saturday roles around, I don't really know what to do with myself. Yes, I have a crazy life. But then, so do all of my friends here on campus. It's normal for college.

I'm glad you decided to spend some of your few free hours with your friends over dinner tonight. :-)
