Finals week already?!
Seriously where has the time gone. It feels like I just moved into my dorm room, and in thirteen days I will be packing everything up and moving out. It is crazy to think that I am almost done with my freshmen year in college. I still feel like a baby! But before I can celebrate for the summer, I still have a lot of paper writing, studying, and dancing to do before it is time to head home to Indiana! This week has been bringing on the stress, and it doesn’t help that the weather has been rainy and chilly, considering it is almost May. Not only was this week stressful, but it was also pretty busy. President Obama came on Wednesday to speak at the Field House. Unfortunately, I was not able to go. I heard only great things from friends who went to hear him speak. A few of my friends even got a wave and a handshake from the President himself! How crazy is that!! I also had to schedule my classes for the next Fall semester, which is only making me more excited to finish up this year. Next Fall is going to be quite busy for me. I am taking less dance classes and more academic classes, so I need to prepare my brain over the summer months. But to end my stressful week, I had one of the best modern classes of my life! Our musician who usually plays during our class was not there, so we plugged in an IPod and listened to classic Michael Jackson instead. So for an hour and a half, the entire class danced, sang, and smiled our way through. Classes like this make me realize how happy I am that I choose to be a part of the department of dance at the University of Iowa. I am definitely going to miss it this summer, but come August I will be ready to make the 6 hour journey back to good old Iowa City! And this time I will be moving into an apartment with my two best friends! It doesn’t get much better than that!!!
