Ready for Thanksgiving Break

12.01.2010

Thanksgiving break cannot get here soon enough. The past few weeks, school has been extremely hectic and on top of working 5 nights a week and cheerleading, it is starting to take a toll on me. It probably doesnÂ’t help that the past couple weeks I havenÂ’t been sleeping extremely great either. IÂ’m not exactly sure what it could be, but I just know I could use a solid nightÂ’s sleep in my bed at home.

So right now, getting home is the light at the end of the tunnel right now. It is only Monday, but I get to leave tomorrow night after I finish going to class. Seems pretty easy right? Well, considering I have a quiz and two tests to take tomorrow, it makes the day just a little more stressful, but makes the time at the airport waiting for my plane that much sweeter.

My quiz and test in clinical assessment should not be too much of a pain. ItÂ’s this class I have, its called nutritional bio-chemistry, this is the class that you have nightmares about. I understand I am an exercise science major, but for me it seems pointless to take, but thatÂ’s not up to me. The class is awful. To be quite honest, I have a hard time paying attention and most of the time I donÂ’t even try. I feel like I am able to learn more studying on my own for the class. Is this bad? Who knows, I just know I only have a few more weeks of this class, so I think I can survive.

On a side note, our Dayton Flyers menÂ’s basketball team came off with a close victory tonight beating Savannah St. 61-59. Savannah St. is a team from Georgia but was a team that I had not heard of. So, because I had not heard of them, I figured this should be a somewhat easy win for the Flyers. To put it simply, I was wrong. It didnÂ’t help that we didnÂ’t play the greatest the first half, but one of their players put up 17 points in the first half. If it wasnÂ’t for him going completely cold the second half, we could have been in a lot of trouble. After a close game, we pulled out ahead and kept the lead for our fourth win on the season improving our record to 4-0. Our next game is Wednesday against FAMU. I do not know very much about this team either, but IÂ’m hoping we play better than we did. Unfortunately I will not be here in Dayton to watch the game but its fine because I will be home enjoying time with family and friends.

Well, it is probably time for me to hit the books. I have a long night ahead of me. For everyone traveling, be safe and I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
