Wow I don't think I realized how long it's been since I updated this. Sorry but with the holidays and finals I've been really busy. I just got back to Ames last night. I got to spend about a week and a half at home, then I spent the New Years in Champaign. It was great to have the nice long break. I got to see everyone that I wanted to, and everyone had a good Christmas. I must admit I still wasn't ready to come back, but oh well. I got a new camera for Christmas. It's what I call a "big girl camera". I took a lot of pictures over break with it, but I'm still learning. I think I need a photography for dummies book or something. I haven't got them uploaded to my computer yet so I'll have to post some pictures later. I got back to Ames last night around 9, and I'm still getting everything put away and my room cleaned up. Right now though I'm going to sit down and get something down on my lit review. I've put it off long enough and I have to get something done before I go back to work on Monday. (Don't worry Mom I'm actually going to write!) So that's it for now. I'll update with pictures again soon I promise!
