There have been so many exciting things happening lately! This past saturday was not only an accepted students open house, but also a part of parents weekend. I started off the day by giving a tour to a few lovely prospective students & their families with my good friend Mary, which was our first time out on our own! So exciting! :)

After dinner, I decided that we needed to go to My Little Cupcake, a little cupcake shop right off of Church Street (on College Street). I had heard that they have vegan cupcakes...and I was very pleasantly surprised! We ended up getting 6 strawberry vegan cupcakes and 6 cookies & cream vegan cupcakes, which were absolutely amazing! (And gone in less than 24 hours...oops!) This is probably one of my new favorite shops in Burlington :)

It's really nice having my parents so close to St. Mike's...even at 2 hours away, they can come up just for the day to visit. So, after a very successful Saturday came Sunday...
I can't even begin to describe how excited I was on Sunday. At around 1pm I was sitting at my desk, procrastinating and looking up random things online when I decided to check Knightvision (the site we use to register for classes here at SMC). I had only gotten into 2 of my classes for next semester, and I was freaking out about what to do for another 2 classes. I tried petitioning into Investigative Reporting and Photojournalism, but the classes were already above their maximum number of students.
...So, on Sunday, I logged into Knightvision..and what do I see? ONE SPOT had just opened in both Photojournalism AND Investigative Reporting! I literally thought I was dreaming. I quickly registered for the two classes and felt an instant rush of relief. Now, I have all four classes I need for next semester and don't have to worry about petitioning into anything else or rushing to find backup classes. YAY!
My schedule for Fall 2012 semester looks like this:
First Semester Italian- Monday/Wednesday/Friday 11:00am-12:05pm
Foreign Correspondence- Wednesday 3:15-6:15pm
Investigative Reporting- Tuesday/Thursday 8:00-9:35am
Photojournalism- Tuesday/Thursday 9:45-11:20am
After a couple weeks of stressing, everything ended up working out well...note to self: keep checking Knightvision for spots in a class to open up!
