I got a massive amount of emails regarding my illness that I discussed a couple days ago. Having so many people care (or at least pretend to care) that I am sick for a couple days is really quite touching, although it's a little freaky too. I called me dad last night and he said, "I heard you were sick, are you feeling better?" I thought he found out from my mom, but he told me that he read about it here (Hi Dad!) I definitely want to thank everyone that emailed me to say they hoped I felt better. The good news is that I am feeling a lot better.
The bad news is that today at about 12:45 I will be taking my final mid-term of the semester, so have been spending all my time of late studying for that, instead of looking up stuff about Kenny Rogers. I have to say that this mid-term ("Mass Media Ethics") is the most nervous I have ever been in my 4 semesters of college so far, and that includes final exams. For some reason I just can't get a handle on the class and I have absolutely no clue what type of stuff is going to be on the test. If you could all take a break from whatever you're doing at about a quarter to one this afternoon and think happy thoughts, maybe we can all work together to get me a halfway decent grade.
I got one of my other mid-terms back yesterday and was very pleased. I got 93/101. I was wondering why a mid-term would possibly have 101 points on it, but I was too happy with my score to ask. Of course, the 93/101 comes in the one class that I am taking "pass/fail," which means I just need to pass it with a C-minus or better and it doesn't effect my GPA. I would say that it is "just my luck," but I would actually need some luck to have a "my luck," wouldn't I?
The other good news (for those of you that are jonesing for my thoughts on all things baseball) is that after my 3 classes today I am officially on Spring Break. I don't have any big plans and I'm not going on a trip to the Bahamas or anything, so I'll definitely be pumping out a few thousand words a day for you to enjoy.
Since I've skipped out on producing a big entry 2 times this week, I'll make you a deal: If you forgive me and make sure to come back here tomorrow, I'll have an extra-long, extra entertaining, extra insightful entry waiting for you to read. How's that sound?
Also, for what I am sure will be some interesting Kenny Rogers-talk, go check out TwinsGeek.com.
By the way, if I've said it once, I've said it a million times: FREE JOHAN SANTANA! (no, seriously this time)
