One more day of school and it'll be fall break.  I really can't wait.  I got my financial aid check yesterday with leftover monies so thats good.  I'll have funds for a while.  I might go visit Davida in D.C. at some point over break because that would just be awesome.  She could show me around in the way only she can.  I think I might go this weekend if I can because Dave and Roxanne left for the beach today.  It's their two year anniversary and they are going to stay for like 5 days I believe.  That's pretty cool for them but now I need to find something to do. 
This past week has been all about studying.  Biology test number 2 was today, but Roxanne had to take it early.. yesterday.  So on Tuesday night I studied for like 5 hours with her until she felt prepared.  Then last night I studied for like 5-6 with Noel because we both had it today.  So I don't think I've ever been so prepared for a test.  I definitely made an A and that is a really good feeling to have.  I haven't made anything less than an A on a test so far in college and that makes me very happy.  I'm glad to know that I'm capable just because I didn't apply myself in high school.  I haven't felt as smart as I do now since before I came to Early College and its cool connecting back with that feeling of being gifted that ecg makes you forget about real quick.  Oh and Roxanne and Noel did really well too, so I feel great about helping them.  I bet though both made A's too.
Oh I went to a wedding.  Tim's grandmother, Thom's mom got married to Keith Peddie.  Who is Amy Peddie's Dad for anyone that knows her.  Small world huh.  Well it was a good wedding, nice and short since they had both had big flashy weddings in their past and this was a get it done kinda thing.  I met this really awesome old couple at the wedding.  The man had worked with Grandmothers husband Thom Einstein II, at the News and Record.  You see, Thom (Thom's dad), was a sports writer for the greensboro news and record most famously covering racing.  And this man that I met hired Thom and worked with him for many years.  It's so cool the history that lives in people.  Like I learned so much about Thom's job from listening to that man talk about it.  It's not even that I know so much more its just the color that he added to it through talking about it.  Like my memory of Thom, something that I didn't think would change very much for obvious reasons has been like added to and its just awesome.  Like with things that I hadn't heard a million times before.  Oh and the woman had gone to Appalachian when she was young like 50 years ago or something.  She said at orientation they said for the students to not go around hugging each other.  I thought that was hilarious.  She told me about where I'd be going to hang out and stuff where people couldn't find you too.  She was so cool.  So between the two of them I had myself thinking I need to start up more random conversations with people I don't know because they could know something that I'd like to.
So yeah aside from learning that people know things I don't, the wedding reception was pretty uneventful.  Then we all went out to eat with Keith's family and that was good.  The night before me Tim and David (Tim's cousin who lives in OK) went to Tim's dorm at UNCG and hung out.  It was the first time I drank with David Einstein and so that was pretty weird.  But still pretty cool.  I got pretty drunk and did things I don't remember which is not a usual one for me.  But nothing that had lasting consequences so it was all in all good.  Haha David however pissed some girl off and like talked to her all the next day but said she thought he was a jerk.  I don't even know.
It was good seeing Tim some more, its been a while since we've had much time to hang out.  We got some good talking time in and watched a lot Weeds on DVD which is a great show. 
So today I've got to do a little studying for my stat test tomorrow and write a paper for critical thinking, but mainly I'll be basking in the glory of the fact that the biology test is over and fall break is in one day.  Oh and I'll take breaks from basking to play halo.
