I’m Back!!!!

 Hey guys,

After a brief and very much needed hiatus, I have returned. How are you guys? How was the holiday season? Great I hope. I really enjoyed this break, I got all the sleep I could handle, and before I knew it…… 2011 had arrived!!!!

New Year New start. This is exactly what I will be using this upcoming spring semester for, a new beginning. I’m planning to raise my GPA and schedule times to rest. I found that in the fall, I over exerted myself and was not getting enough sleep. I’ve learned from that and am ready to rock. Do you guys have any spring semester resolutions? I want to hear from you, especially those who just finished their first semester of college. How did you like it? As you can see it is an ongoing learning process in and out of the class. I am still tweaking my college survival plan…

Shalom,

Mercedes

Happy Holidays

Hello All,

Thanksgiving has just passed and Christmas is up ahead. Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. It’s just something about the glittering lights, food and abundance of people around in joyful spirits. Every Christmas, I go into full overload. I start by picking a color scheme, and then the whole house gets decorated throughout. I pick out holiday music, go on a baking frenzy and this year we have a new canine addition to our family, so I’m even going to dress her up to reflect my holiday spirit. What are some things you guys like to do? Any family traditions? What about the dreaded holiday travel? I’ll be posted here in Baltimore, but I know of people going as far as San Diego this holiday season. No matter what you do, ENJOY yourself.

Happy holidays.

Tschüss,

Mercedes
