I finally finished that group project, some of my teachers are holding non-important classes this week, and so I can skip and make my Thanksgiving Break longer. I got a good week ahead of me.
Going to chillax and play some video games right now though.

Did some sight seeing, practiced kung fu for a month and visited some buddhist temples. Interestingly enough I started my trip when Linsanity began february 4th. I saw first hand the response from the chinese community, it was quite amazing. They LOVE nba basketball. Then witnessed some rioting over the islands that the japanese and chinese are battling over. I was in shanghai, hong kong and then in a few cities in hunan province.
All in all an amazing trip. I now know why people say its important to travel. You definitely broaden yourself.
That sounds interesting and quite an experience. I have gone to Canada for a few days (soccer game) and Albania for vacation, but that is about it. I usually go to Albania (family is there) once every two years, but I have not been for like 4 years, really miss it. I want to go to Germany and Japan after I graduate. I love traveling. I hope I can get some work that requires traveling around the world. The traveling I have done taught me a lot.

Actually I take that back. There were some group projects where I had a few hot girls in my group and made it worth my while.
Other than that I hated them. Always ended up relying on people that did half a** work and usually had to increase my workload due to the weak link.
But college is fun, make it last as long as possible.
I just finished this group project. It had nine members, all men. I am an Information Systems major, and there are hardly any females in our classes. Having two females in one class is a big deal. It makes up 30%-40% of our final grade. Only 4 out of the 9 members showed up to the final meeting.
I am just glad to get it over with. The project was for my Project Management course. I was actually assigned as the Project Manager of our group so I was the leader. Luckily I have a really smart friend who is experienced in the field ,and we got to be in the same group, and he really boosted our project up.

I think you are a freshman, and I agree building a schedule sucks. Freshman are usually last to register. As a freshman I had to check the course database every 10 minutes to finally get this class section I really wanted to complete my perfect schedule. Hang in there and try to get it as perfect as possible.
I am having trouble building my schedule for next semester, and I am a junior/senior now. I need 3 hours of electives next semester. So I decided to take a class in Yoga and in Basketball in the morning. It should be fun, but the only downside is they are in the morning, and my other courses are at noon or in the evening. I got some time to kill between classes.
