Personal Update: May 2014

Chicago 2013 - Minneapolis 2014 005

Since I haven’t been doing anything productive recently I decided to post an update on my personal life. I am now half way done with my degrees at Iowa State. Yay! 🙂 Half way done! I had my one and only final on May 8th. I was really lucky this year. It’s not often that someone only has one final, and even then it was just an essay question. I am extremely grateful for God’s help in giving me the motivation to finish up the semester.  I couldn’t have done it without Him. By mid-April I just didn’t care about doing well on my schoolwork, I just wanted it to be all over lol (too excited about our upcoming summer vacation!). So once I finished up my one exam I headed to Half-Price Books and rewarded myself by buying more books. Now instead of having about thirty unread books on my bookcase I have around forty. This summer looks like it’s going to be extremely busy! That Friday I went into surgery early in the morning for hardware removal in my ankle (as you can see in the picture I am in a boot and will be for a few more weeks). In 2012, two weeks before I was due to graduate from high school, I broke my ankle playing… wait for it…  Red Rover. Let’s just say it was an intense game. Anyway, I got to keep the hardware (one plate and twelve screws) and they were so colorful! I thought they were going to be plain gray like the ones you buy at hardware stores but they ended up being blue, pink, gold and green. So for the past few days I’ve been chilling with my family. I bet they’ll be  so sad to see me go back  😉 But duty calls, right! All in all, I’d say my kickoff to summer was pretty good (even if I was recovering during it and all). To all of you out there, have a great summer and stay safe!
