Finals

So, final exams have arrived. This week I have 4 exams. Yesterday I had my dreaded psychology exam; tomorrow I have my dreaded English exam; Thursday I have my dreaded history exam; finally, I have my...Yes...dreaded math exam. Fortunately I have already gotten my psychology out of the way. I got a 90% on it !!! Woooo HOOOOOoo. So my grade in that class is an A!

I am going on day 6 of this nasty chest cold. If I am not coughing something up, then I am coughing nothing up, only dryness. Sometime in the middle of the night my whole throat and chest becomes amazingly dry. At this point at least I am no longer coughing.

Yet another change of subject... Early this morning at about 5:45am, I heard three quick pops. Then after a brief pause there were about 6 to 8 more steady pops. Now.. I was staying at my girlfriend's house, which is not in too good of a neighborhood, and so this wasn't the first time I had heard gunshots around that area. I immediately called 911 and reported the shooting.

I told the operator what I had heard and that it had startled me awake. So then she asks me if I saw if anyone was hurt, or if I saw what happened. I then repeated that it had startled me awake and I wasn't about to stick my head out the door to find out what had happened. We both giggled, and coughed at about the same time. "Everyone seems to have the crud these days" she said. (odd conversation to have in the middle of reporting multiple shots fired) So she finished by taking my name and told me that they would be sending a cruiser by. I felt better after that, but about 45 min to an hour later I heard the dog in the backyard (Milo) barking like crazy. At the same time my girlfriend's mother's little chihuahua was barking her little heart out as well. THIS kind of freaked me out. Needless to say I did not get hardly any sleep after my girlfriend left that morning for work about 4:30 or so.

Tiredness is setting in. By the way I got an A- on my research essay for English "Gay Marriage: An Uphill Struggle" I am going to post it here on this site. Hope you enjoy!

Have a great day, and hopefully next time I post I will be back from visiting my family in Wisconsin and have brought back a new little chihuahua baby.

Happy Holidays!!!
