Hi All! First I want to wish all of you a Happy Holiday and hope your plans and mine go over well. The semester is coming to a close and finals are almost finished and luckily the next one doesn’t start for three weeks so we get a nice little Christmas break to relax. As it stands on the 19th I leave for Germany and I won’t get there until the morning of the 20th but the trip will be worth it. My girlfriend is coming along with me to both meet my parents and visit some sites. We will be going to Paris for three days from the thirtieth to the first which I hope will go over well. It should be an exciting couple of weeks all in all. I won’t be back until the fourteenth so until then I hope all of you have a Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Years.
