Life Update

So, I had a really spectacular day today, and I want to tell you all about it. I had a debate tournament at the end of last quarter, so I wasn't able to take my math final. I had to talk to some administrators, jump through some hoops and do other sorts of things, but eventually it was agreed upon that I would just take an incomplete for the course until I took the final the first week of winter quarter, which wouldn't you know it, started on Monday. Anyway, I've been worrying about this test ALL WEEK, studying a lot, freaking out a lot and generally not looking forward to it. But I took it today, from 5:30 to 7:30 and I am DONE! I think it went pretty well, though I don't know. Interestingly enough, there were a few problems that I completely overanalyzed and thought were harder than they were, but eventually I figured it out. That happens to me more often than I'd like to admit, actually. Anyway, I'm done, and it's great. What's also nice is how cool my professor is. He rewrote the final (it had my name on it, and I got to keep it!) for me, stayed an hour past his normal office hours to proctor my exam and was generally just really nice and accommodating. Cool guy, which makes me happy.

Also, I got to close a case for Project Health! I volunteer for this organization in which I connect people to resources like utilities help, housing and employment. Generally, we try to give them access to already available resources, usually government programs, but sometimes we go on craigslist and sites like that because often our clients have no internet access. Anyway, I helped this one woman with an outstanding utilities bill and it's the first case I've been able to properly close, so that's super exciting!!

Anyway, that's what's up with me.
