This semester my schedule is pretty flexible with only a couple classes a day. I am done with classes by 9:15am on Thursday so I have a lot of time to study and if it allows, have a longer weekend break! Unfortunately I have to take Chemistry 2 & lab from 6-9 at night one day a week which I'm not at all looking forward to, but otherwise I really can't complain about my schedule!
For MLT we are diving into Hematology and Serology. I am also taking psychology online, chemistry, and Anatomy and Physiology. Looking forward to all my classes minus chemistry. It was my toughest class in the fall and I struggled to pull an A out of the class. But I'm going to stay optimistic about Chem 2 and aim for an A!
During the first part of my break I spent about a week with my family. We celebrated my sisters birthday on the 16th and then I celebrated my birthday on the 20th with my family. I spent my actual birthday with Josh on the 22nd. He took me out to eat at the Loop (Fun Fact: Where we had our first date!) and he got me an awesome coffee table book about the top 100 musicals which has been fun to flip through when I've been bored. He also got me the cutest stuffed sloth that we named Seymore! It's been fun, Josh takes pictures of him doing silly things in the morning before he goes to work....
Josh spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my family and a good time was had by all! Christmas Eve day we spent with my mom, dad, and sister at the house playing games, eating food, and visiting. That evening we went to my grandmas, as is tradition, and enjoyed ourselves among lots of food, punch, and gifts, and family.
Christmas Day was spent with my mom, dad, and sister at the house. We opened up our gifts which was so fun to see each others reactions, played around with them a bunch and played several games. Josh made friends with the dogs and we got to relax and just enjoy the day.
We spent several nights at Josh's parents cabin and got to spend time with his parents. We all watched the Husker bowl game, which ended up not disappointing like we thought it would! The cabin and time with his family was very enjoyable and relaxing, but going to the bathroom outside in an outhouse at 3am with subzero wind chills is not our idea of fun, so we were ready to get back home and relax with each other after being with family for several days in a row =)

We also had to jump on the Star Wars bandwagon! We went to the movie and LOVED it! I'm super excited to see what the next one brings! Josh and I also watched Ant Man, which I really liked, and then I asked to watch more of the Marvel movies as I've really enjoyed each one I've seen. We watched Guardians of the Galaxy which made me excited for the next one that will be coming out! We also watched Jaws, Josh's favorite movie. He was blown away I hadn't seen it before!
