Working Vacation

Where have I been?!? That was what you were thinking, right? Haha, well let’s just say it was. I’ve been taking summer classes which, for those of you who don’t know, is basically compressing a semesters worth of class days into about a month. This summer I’m taking 2 classes on Special Education which are part of my college’s SP curriculum. It’s a pretty fun class, it’s just tiring as all hell. 

We got to do a social experiment today where we went to the mall and pretended to be blind/be in a wheelchair. It’s for a paper we have to write and besides being an eye-opening (no pun intended) experience it was also challenging(I bumped into a lot of things…and people). The week before we had to create a booklet on learning disabilities and give a report on them. We also got to watch “Adam”, which is a movie about a guy with Asperger’s.

That’s the short summary of what I’ve been busy with lately. Hopefully, I get to post more interesting things before the summer is over. Our batch is headed into junior year which is probably the most academically challenging part of our undergrad days (senior year is a league of its own) so it might be a little tougher to post then, but we’ll see.

You can’t spell “hiatus” without “us”.

It’s been a really, really long time since I last posted anything. That was probably mainly due to the whirlwind of a 2nd semester I just had that felt like it would never end. But it finally has! Ended that is, and I’m pretty much  free for a little over a week before registration for summer classes and summer classes start up (I know, we work too hard). I have a feeling there will be a lot going on this summer though. I’m thinking of getting into better shape, learning how to drive, maybe a martial arts class, and a music festival or two.  Hopefully procrastination doesn’t get in the way 🙂
