First Day of Intermediate

Okay, have to make it quick because I have things to do for fair. First day of Russian went really well. I had had a dream several weeks ago that it was otherwise but in reality it was fun. Got to catch up with the people from last semester who I hadn't seen in a while. During actual class, we just reviewed and I was happy to find that I remembered more than I thought I did. (It had just been locked away for the summer) No one had books and so I think Marina (The teacher) is going to be requesting an order for them. Hopefully they'll come in soon because I think we'll be reviewing until they do. Oh well.

Marina seems to be a good teacher. She's Russian so at least I know she knows what she's talking about. We played some rather entertaining review games. One of them was a game where she'd say a number in Russian and we'd have to quickly write it on the board. The first team to write it correctly got a point. Let me tell you, our team kicked butt! Thankfully we did because the other team has to recite the numbers one to one thousand for Marina during her office hours this week. Whether or not they actually will remains to be seen.

Okay, that's all I have time for now, You probably won't be hearing anything more until after labor day because I won't be at Russian the rest of this week due to fair showing. High School starts after labor day and so I'll have lots more language stuff to tell you then.

Summer Slacker

Okay, it's not my fault that I don't do enough with language in the summer, usually, I"m too busy getting goats ready for the fair. Okay, now that that's said, down to business. I figured this would be a good time to post since Russian Class starts tomorrow. I'm nervous and I don't know why because I've done this before. Jon-Michael who is going Post-secondary full time at a different college told me it was a waste because I"m only taking two classes and Practically the only thing I've been taking is Russian. I would just like to say PPPPPPFFFFFFFTTTT to him. lol. Personally, I don't think it's a waste. I am preparing myself for my career and not paying a penny for it. Sounds like a good deal to me!

I got a call from Abeline Christian University the other day. I found out they had an international studies program. Which was something I didn't know. I did some searching, and some calling and got some interesting information. I know have a christian college on my list of places to apply, which makes me feel a little better. You see all of the people at our church this year who graduated are all at the same christian college, you don't know how many times I heard the phrase "And I (We) praise God because our young men and women have chosen to attend a christian college." So I have this ongoing joke that next year it's going to be "Let's all pray for Abigail because she is going to burn for all eternity for going to a state school." Okay, Maybe it's only funny if you're there. Whatever.

Okay, I'm gonna wrap it up now. I'll let all of you (non-existent) readers how it goes tomorrow. Hopefully I won't have forgotten everything...
