This coming semester will be my last at Judson. I thought that it would be fitting to wear a dress that my mother wore to Christmas Tea and Vespers when she was a student at Judson to my last Christmas tea as a student. Surprisingly, the dress fit perfectly and didn't seem too very out of style.. I realize that I need to savor every blip of time I have here. This spring semester will fly in a hurry!
Course signups took place several weeks ago. It looks like I'll be in Ms. Bartley's Biochemistry, Ms. Susan Jones' Biochemical Nutrition, Ms. Castro's Spanish II, Ballet with Jill Coplen, Bioethics with Dr. Wilson, and of course one of Dr. Betty's voice classes. I'll still be working on the biology honors project. Dr. Wilson (my project sponsor and major advisor) is encouraging me to present what I have so far at the Alabama Academy of Sciences meeting this March. As well as trying to pull that together, I'm worrying over my applications to the two rural medicine programs - RMP at Auburn and RMSP at the University of Alabama. I already feel busy just thinking about the honors project. I doubt Biochemistry will be a walk in the park either.
In addition to all of that brainy work, I do plan to keep dancing and try to work on jogging. Unfortunately my jogging/workout buddy Christina is going to Australia soon. (Check out her study abroad blog :)) I'll miss having accountability and am worried that I'll get sidetracked. I know it'll be a an incredibly fun and huge learning experience for Christina and can't help but be excited for her though! It's frightening how easy is is for me to get tempted into homework, papers, and other things I need to take care of during workout hour. I desperately want to finish my Judson years in good form. If you like working out and need a buddy this spring, let me know!
