Greetings fellow Regents! Don't lose momentum now, we are almost there! There are just TWO weeks left of the Fall 2010 semester. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing probably varies for each of us, but I think it's safe to say for all of us that finishing a semester is always an accomplishment. As a student, all of the papers and exams add up and the work load does become increasingly burdensome as the semesters go by. However, it is always doable!
I hope that the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend went well for you. For me, it was a great time seeing family members and reminiscing on the good old times. Did you go out in the frenzy for Black Friday? Every single year I've told myself I was going to do it, but in the last minute, I chicken out and instead use the extra time off to sleep. This year was no different! At least the weekend wrapped up with a Bears victory! If you're a Chicago Bears fan, I'm sure you enjoyed their win like I did!
Now that Thanksgiving has passed all of us, the Christmas Holiday season is fast approaching and the time has never been better to be a Regent. There are a lot of great events coming up to help put us all into the Christmas spirit! Some, like The Frontiers Performance of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, are even aimed at a good cause! For this performance, you can receive half-priced admission for a toy donation for Toys for Tots. There is also the annual Wassail Party which is going on this afternoon to especially get us in the holiday mood!
I hope your classes are going well, and I wish you luck down the home stretch here for the remainder of the semester! Hang in there!
Until next time...
