My friends, I apologize, yet again for neglecting my blog.
It has been one heck of a week!
And it's only getting more hectic... in a good way.
I'm going to be brief in this post because I really gotta get crackin' on some much procrastinated homework. yuck!
Something I am going to have a hard time juggling is my time management once I get back to Oregon- managing my homework, blog, time with Jesus, friends, work (assuming I'm going to be working a lot...), and time for myself- which I've forgotten I've needed and totally took advantage of. Since I've been here, I've had much more time to fit things in then I ever have before.
At least until recently, thank you Jesus.
As I mentioned in my last post, that was oh so long ago, I've made some new friends that have really altered my time here at Gallaudet. I saw at least one of them every day last week, including the weekend. Over the weekend, they actually spent the night in my room every night. Here's a few pictures of it all.

|The perfect package from home!|
Friday night was the last Gallaudet football game. It was freezing! I loved it.
After the game, I had a sleep over with the girls.
We watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
It was awesome.

The next day, we went on a run to the Capitol and back. It was about 4 miles altogether.
|my favorite little bum.|
They love teasing me when I attempt to sign a new sign that they've taught me.
That night, I went to dinner with the Hinton's. That was the last time I would see them since football is now over... that is, unless I see them at their sons wedding in Oregon in the future... !

|I'm gonna miss them!|
And now, dear friends, my weeks are going to start to seem much, and I mean much, shorter.
(Side note- have you ever said a word so many times that it starts to sound like it's not a word anymore?
That just happened to me with 'much'.)
Why are my weeks going to fly by now, you ask?
Sister is here!!!!
|Of course I made her stand by the Christmas tree so I could take a picture. |
She was loving it, as you can tell.
|We both passed out earrrrly... The difference? She fell asleep before me- I got to sneak some good pictures of her.|
And then in just 4 short days, mister aaron woodrow babcock, aka 'boyfriend', which I frequently call him on my blog, is coming to town!
I'll say it again, hallelujah!!
|I can't wait to see this man.|
Happy monday, my dear friends!
I'll try not to neglect my blog...
although, I can make no promises knowing the week ahead of me.
I'm so excited!
