THE SEMESTER IS FINALLY OVER!!!!!!!!  Woohoo!  I finished my last final of this Spring 2011 Semester at 12:15 pm…I am done done done!  I believe my grades will end up:

C in Intro to Organic and Biochemistry

I’m ok with the C because the other two classes even that out!  So now I get to enjoy my summer not having to worry about homework or studying for classes or going to class…I get to have some peace and quite time to just enjoy some me time and READ, READ, READ!  So I’d say that’s reason to party, right?!  😀
