It's over!

The semester is finally over. I am thankful I survived. Painting went great, I got a B in metals, and actually made an A in "Teaching Students w/ Disabilities" class. Hooray!

Speaking of metals, I was very happy that at the last minute, I was able to make a sterling silver engagement ring for my fiance. I got him a cheap one from Walmart a long time ago (c'mon, we're poor college kids) but it didn't fit well so he eventually stopped wearing it. This is still pretty snug, but it's definitely more special since I made it. :D It's 18g, and took a long time to sand and polish, but I am proud of it.

(His middle finger is still swollen from tendon surgery.)

But anyway, the house is emptied from packing and moving. I can't wait to finish up here, relax at home for the holidays, and then make my way to good ole Finland for what surely will be a great study abroad experience! I've prepared a blog for it here so feel free to follow my adventures to come. ^_^
