Our last 1st day of school

Today was our last first day of school, at least until we decide on grad programs. How exciting! The best part of my day was seeing all our fantastic choir friends again after a very long break.

We missed singing with the Chorale and Troubadours, and now we're ready to jump right back in! Today we received some plans for the spring musical, and I can tell you it's going to be a great one. I can't wait to get into some of the music, and I'm so thankful for one last semester with the amazing group.

Some other exciting news is that thanks to the blessing of a couple amazing people, Raymond and I have the opportunity to go see Jersey Boys in a couple weeks! I cannot explain how much I love this show. We first saw it on Broadway in NYC, and we both fell in love! I'm giddy that we get to enjoy it another time.

Tomorrow I have my first science class in four years. Can you tell I'm a Communication major? Everyone keeps telling me not to worry about it, but it's been a really long time since my Sophomore high school Biology class! Can I get an Amen???

I've loved being at home with my family, but I'm moving into town at the end of the month so that I can be closer to school and work during the week. I'll miss sitting with my dad every night, the overly full fridge and my awesome mom who surprises me sometimes with a packed lunch (hey, sometimes it's okay to feel like you're still a kid). It's only a 20 minute drive though, so they won't be able to keep me out unless the change the locks. I love my family! :)

Check out Jersey Boys, it won't disappoint!

Big Announcement!

Raymond and I have had a few really exciting weeks since returning to the Midwest. He comes in on the 3am train early Sunday morning, and we start classes the next day. It's great getting back into things, but also a little exhausting!

I'm posting an update over my lunch hour at my NEW JOB that I absolutely LOVE. Since I've been here a week already, I think I can officially announce that I'm the new Marketing Assistant at the Museum of World Treasures in downtown Wichita. The team I'm working with is fantastic and I'm proud to get the chance to market this amazing Wichita gem! If you haven't been to visit in awhile, come on in! There were four exhibits redesigned in the last year.

I've been loving the weather in Kansas, as it's mostly dry and sunny. It is colder than England, but I have better hair days due to the dry air! Spring will be here before I know it, and I'll be planting flowers. I do love my tulips.

I know lots of students have already started classes this week. I actually just took my Finance final a couple days ago for one of my classes back in England! I have one more project to submit online, and I'll officially be done with those classes!

Something I missed while I was in England? Pandora Radio.

Check it out, I even have my name on the door!
