well, it’s been quite a day. i got my history paper back — i got an A! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ i’m so happy about that. rachel (my gsi) wrote on my paper that my “effort shows through.” so i didn’t give up my spring break for nothing, whew!

my classmates in my seminar (and the professor) also liked my berkeley action plan πŸ™‚ i was pleased because of all the time i put into drawing it! (see my entry for saturday, 14 april)

i’m finally hosting a student tonight, too! her name is gina and she is nice. she’s out in the common room right now watching mtv. πŸ™‚ at the overnight hosting pizza social, we met these two other girls, a host (foothill freshman) and her guest. really really scary… they both have boyfriends and both of them are engaged-to-be-engaged-to-be-married to them. my goodness! the guest is a high school senior, like all the overnight guests, and her boyfriend is twenty-two and is a graphic designer.
(but then again, who am i to talk about serious relationships? :>)

loud applause, standing ovations and multiple encores go out to brian for commenting on my journal entries πŸ™‚ squishy tomatoes to everybody else who has been reading but not commenting ;b come on, don’t you have anything to say for yourself?

this is already a long entry. i’ll be back in a bit to talk about the palestra.
