10 Days and Counting

I have only 10 days left of my college career as I know it! I can’t believe this semester has flown by so quickly. It has been a whirlwind of classes, tests, and papers, but it is finally coming to a close.

And what shall start the next chapter of my life? I am planning a long trip with Brendan, my boyfriend. We will start off on December 27th by flying out to San Fran and then Tahoe for New Year’s to visit San Fran friends and people Brendan went to school with at Berkeley. From there we will go to Washington D.C. with his family for a few days and on January 8th, we will leave from NYC to Santiago, Chile where the fun really starts. From there we will travel over land to Buenos Aires and north to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with small stops in between. We will be in Rio for Carnival and then leave on February 6th for the next leg of our adventure.

We fly to Tokyo next for 18 hours then on to Singapore. From here we will be traveling over land through Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam to China where we intend to take a train through the country and end up in Beijing. From there we will hop on the Trans-Siberian railway and venture through Mongolia and Russia ending up in Moscow. From here, we’re not quite sure where to go.. It depends on how much money we have left and where we have friends/ cheap places to stay. Click here for a map of SE Asia..

SO if you have any suggestions or contacts for me I would love to hear from you!

Farewell to San Francisco (for now at least!)

Well.. it seems as though my summer in SF is coming to an end. I have been SOO busy at work the last few weeks… I had 2 big projects to finish for my department and then I was working hard on wrapping up our final group project for our internship program. I think overall it was a very good experience.. Our group project was a lot of work but overall somewhat rewarding. We gave our presentation on the 7th, and it was a hit! We did some good work.

The next leg of my summer (or what’s left of it) will be a family trip in Germany. I leave on Sunday (the 12th). We’ll be staying with a family that my brother did an exchange with 2 years ago in the southern part of Germany called Bavaria.. The city we’re staying in is called Friedburg, and its about an hour south of Munich. Hopefully we’ll have time to travel a bit around the country!

Code Code Code

I made another web page.. using ASP! I modified code! EXCITING. It automatically pulls information from databases that I created and displays it for you wonderful people online. You can also delete, update, and insert entries (except not on the “Assignment” one because I used auto number and now I can’t re-upload the modified files. sad. anyway… have fun perusing my websites!

Saturday Afternoons.

Saturday afternoons are perfection. No homework has to be done until tomorrow.. no classes to go to.. no pressure.. it is the only time of the week that you can forget about all responsibilities..

Sunday is when the week begins.. all the homework and lists of things to do. Monday through Thursday is full of completing tasks.. and Friday is full of working BUT Saturday is different.. it is for whatever you truly want to do. laying in bed till noon just because you can, pjs and calling the friends you meant to call all week, cold pizza for breakfast and good music, watching movies and finishing books.
