Spring is in the air

Spring break is over, but it was fun.
I took a road trip from Grand Forks all over the Western part of the US.
We went from GF to Denver, only to get stuck in 2 storms on the way. To Vegas, to L.A. to San Fran and San Jose to watch the Wild play the Sharks, to get caught in another storm, then up north to get East and back home.

Finals Time!

Finals are here, and I'm ready to step up to the plate. I'm quite a bit behind on my independent study research, but I'm getting an extension into next semester. Other than that I'm looking at another great semester worth of grades as long as I can NAIL my Norwegian final tomorrow. It's actually 2 parts. We have a written final tomorrow and an oral final the day to follow. I have other work to be done, but I should be ok for the rest of my classes (meaning getting an "A").
I was lucky enough to go to the CNN news conference interview of the Nobel Prize last Saturday (Held each year in Oslo). It was GREAT! I got to shake Jonathan Mann's hand, (one of CNN's biggest, baddest and best reporters). I am in the process of making a video for my Comm 402 final, so I'll post it tomorrow after I'm done.

Dece in December

Well. I am just dunbfounded at this website. I have more movies that won't upload that are finished than I know what to do with. I can't figure out what the problem is. Hopefully in back at school I can figure it out.
I have videos with footage regarding...

-Trip to Copenhagen
-Trip to Barcelona/Dublin
-A tour of the city of Moss
 These are very long videos that take a while to upload, but I've given some of them more than 24 hours to do so. SO, we'll see what happens, I always have them on my computer to show to those who are interested.
I LEAVE IN 2 WEEKS! Ahhhh!

I also just decided that I can't wait to go back to Squires Dining Hall and build myself a HUGE Cesar Salad with chicken.... ooooh weeeeee!

Sick

Sick all day today, and not "sick" as in super cool, rad or awesome. I've had a massive migraine and been throwing up, oh but it gets better.... I'm one of 8 rooms in the dorms at the moment that had pipes freeze while I was on vacation, so there's no running water in my room. (Throwing up in a toilet I can't immediately flush... oh man). Life will get better, I'm feeling better already. It's just days like today I wish I was at home in a nice bed getting served some chicken noodle soup by those who love me. Happy Thanksgiving to all, I'm so very thankful I was gifted with the opportunities I have been, the people in my life, and the brain to get me around.
Less than a month left... as a matter of fact in 1 month I'll be at home with the fam!
