New Year—it’s been a while!
Last time I wrote I was in game mode—finals and stress
everywhere. Now? Things are much different. I’m in the middle of CentreTerm here at
school where I’m taking one class for three hours a day on something I find very

class begins at 9:00 a.m. Monday thru Friday, and is over by noon. In the afternoons I can either sleep,
do work, eat, or relax—or all of the above—for about four hours
until practice, which is still going on these days. After a run—I’m training for track and field now—I take my time eating dinner and then get into my work for the
night. If that doesn’t take me to
the end of the night, hanging around the dorm will. There’s always a movie going or an Xbox playing. Overall, for me, CentreTerm is awesome
—I get to study something that really interests me, and the stress that
comes with it is very low.
before CentreTerm I had my Christmas break which, to be honest, was too
short. I spend my days seeing
friends, being with my family, and doing nothing. As you may know, some big snow came our way up in New York—we got about a foot total, which was great. If only it would snow that much here.
I go, let me leave you with a poem to brighten your day:
CentreTerm is what
It makes me happy—no room for booing.
Having fun and
It’s snow I want—that’d be a thrill.
Life is good here I
