MY LIFE HAS BEEN CRAZY!!  This is definitely finals week for sure.

 I only have 2 finals, one on Thursday and one on Friday, but let me just tell you what else I have to do… Yesterday, I had my final French paper due in my 4000 level class, which was 5 pages long!  I think that was the longest French paper I’ve ever written.  Today, by midnight, I have my final 8-10 page Political Philosophy paper due.  Did I mention I haven’t started that one yet?? Ha.  And on top of that, that professor also assigned 2 reaction papers due by Saturday at noon!  Ridiculous!!  Who do they think I am?! Then I have to study for my American Supreme Court final tomorrow then study for my Spanish final on Friday.  So OFFICIALLY…I am done Fall 2008 semester this Saturday at noon, haha.  Life = crazy right now.

On top of that, I’m trying to find someone to take over my lease so I can move out asap since I’m leaving February 4th for Paris!!!!  A few people have seen the room already, but I’m awaiting a final decision.  And on top of that, I still haven’t bought my Christmas presents for people which I have to do on Friday.  I don’t think I can get any busier.  Really.  But it’s ok.. I like being busy rather then bored.  

In other news, a bunch of my friends and I just went ice skating at the RiverRink in Penn’s Landing.  I had been there once before, but it was so nice going again when I’m much older!!  And also, Temple Men’s Basketball had the best upset ever!!  I think it was the best game I have been to at the Liacouras Center thus far.  Temple played #8 in the nation, Tennessee, and we PWNED!  And although I couldn’t storm the court afterward since I’m in basketball band, I did manage to take a picture on my phone so I’ll upload that on here.  And most importantly, I WENT TO MY FIRST EAGLES GAME AND FIRST FLYERS GAME!!!  My first Eagles game was on Monday for Monday Night Football!!! WOO!  And we won against the Cleveland Browns 30-10!!  It was amazing.  And just last night, I went to my first Flyers game… IN A SUITE!!!  One of my best friends here, Erin, won some type of contest online and got a free suite with her and other friends she could invite.  We played Colorado Avalanche and won 5-2!!!  It was soo awesome!!!  I LOVE Philly sports!!!!

So, since I REALLY need to start that 8-10 page paper like NOWish..I have to cut this post short.  Sorry for the lack of posting.  But I’m sure you can understand and see why!  Here are a few pics, though!!
