I finally made it downtown to see the green river! For a history on the green river in Chicago, click here: https://chicagoist.com/2016/03/16/st_patricks_day_history.php . It was pretty cool. I went the day after they dyed it, so it had started to fade a little, but it was still neat to see, and I didn’t have to deal with all the people on St. Patrick’s Day! It was a win-win! Plus, I normally walk along the riverside on my way to church on Sundays anyway.
It is week 12 of the trimester. I did have one exam this week, but for the most part, we are all starting to prepare for the onslaught of final exams and practicals that begin week 14. I have started taking my mini-iPad with me to the gym, so I can study while I work out.
It has been working really well, although I have to use a resistance band to keep my iPad from falling off when I begin to run. I have learned that every minute of study time is valuable…sometimes it is simply a matter of getting as much repetition as possible. Running in the morning also helps with anxiety levels, especially as we approach finals!
And, just for fun, here is a picture of me snuggling after church with my puppy.
