|San Juan, Puerto Rico|
It’s my final semester here at BYU, and it is turning out to be pretty good (class wise, not social wise. When your husband lives out of state, weekends are nothing to look forward to.)
Anyway, I feel like giving an update on all the super-fun-fantastic-be-jealous-of-my-life stuff going on right now (well...compared to my weekends).
Research: Today I submitted an abstract to the NCM (Neural Control of Movement) conference in Puerto Rico. My professor (who is the absolute best person to work for) said that there is a pretty high chance it will get accepted and that I will be presenting a poster in April…in Puerto Rico from a hotel right on the beach. Oh Jenny, you say, won’t that be expensive? Well thanks to the ORCA grant that I received last week, and some funds from BYU, its FREE! Yeah, I’m jazzed. So, cross your fingers that the abstract gets accepted.
Capstone: Still hate it. Our team hired an industrial designer to help with some drawings. He’s a good addition.
Swimming 101: AWESOME. Today we had to swim A LOT. And I’m exhausted, but I love that class. Especially since dear Jana-Rob from Wien 2010 is in my class (today when we swam 750 yards…she beat me by 200, but I still am her friend).
Tennis 101: Hasn’t started yet, but I’m excited.
Writing Creative Non-Fiction: Despite the abundance of estrogen, English snobbery, and intimidation, I love this class. I love writing essays, you get to be all artsy introspective.
Intramurals: I have found a way to get an intramural champion t-shirt (which I ruled out as impossible after girls soccer freshman year). It’s called Run For Your Life. All I have to do is run 150 miles before April 13th (about 15 miles per week). If I do it, I get a t-shirt. Kyle says it’s cheating. Also running related Kyle and I are running in the Red Rock Relay with my sister Betsy and her husband’s family. It should be fun, I don’t think I’ll have to run more than 12 miles total, but I’ve never done a relay before, so I’m excited.
Other: I have signed up for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FE). It’s 8 hours long. Kyle and I are taking it together. Aren’t we precious?
I am sad, because before I started writing this I had the second half of my TWIX bar left. Now it is gone, and I don’t even remember eating it. Bother.
Thank you for letting me rant about my kinda-but-not-so-much-kick-a life. Hope you are all doing well.
