Easter Weekend and More!

Happy Easter everyone,

I hope everyone had a good, fun holiday weekend. Let’s see, I’ll update you all of what’s been happening in my life the past two weeks.

First I’ll start with Rockfest! I carpooled down to D.C. with a good family friend of mine and we arrived that Friday night. I stayed at my home in Frederick, Maryland and ended up talking to my family late into the night. My family and I woke up early and started the drive down to Gallaudet to play in the soccer game. The game was competitive and fun and I scored in the dying moments of the first half. However, the second half ended up 4-1 with Gallaudet winning the game. Later on we watched the men’s volleyball game and ate at a local pizza place. Then the very next day we drove back up to Rochester. While the weekend at home was fun, I was definitely exhausted by the end of it.

Now fast forward to the week. I had a few tests in my interpreting classes, and in one of my Deaf culture classes we had a panel of deaf-blind students talk about diversity and their experiences. It was definitely interesting and sparked my interest in getting involved with deaf-blind interpreting. So we’ll have to see if I can take the elective for deaf-blind interpreting next semester.

Then for the weekend, I sadly came down with a sore throat, but still managed to have fun for Easter. I visited my girlfriend’s family for Easter and had a great time. There was great food, and her family is fun to talk to as well. Overall, it was a great weekend and much needed going into week 12 for the semester.

But that’s all I have for now, and the next time I post… it’ll be week 14, almost the end of the semester!
