I recieved my first graded paper back and feel so relieved. I now have a better understanding of the grading system here and also what I need to do to recieve high marks. The first paper is always the worst especially if you’ve been out of school for a couple of years as I have been. My next couple of assignments involve a 4000-5000 word essay on India-Pakistan Nuclear Doctrines and a team presentation on Counterinsurgency. Should be a busy month!
Back home my parents just got a new puppy and ended up having a litter of puppies. Of course they wait until I’m gone to have a house full of puppies! I recieve picture updates and those Akita puppies are just beautiful. If there is one thing I miss about home that I don’t have here (other than a car) it’s being around dogs. Man’s best friend for sure!
This month for me is bound to be one of the busiest. I have a friend visiting next weekend and two weekends after that I will be heading to Glasgow for ALTERBRIDGE (just to get a little taste of home), not to mention working on the assignments due just a little bit after that. I keep forgetting I’m not just here to have fun! I am here to recieve a degree and learn as much as I can!
Back home my friends, VanMarter Project, released their second single, Guaranteed Tomorrow. The video was shot on a short tour they took to Utah. On this tour to Utah they stopped at a Junior High and helped raise money for the school’s arts/music programs. I was so proud of them. Here is a link to their video. I suggest you guys check them out!!
