One Down!

Semester #1 is officially complete, papers submitted, and grades are posted (all A's baby!). Let me tell you, this has been an interesting semester to say the least... a little tougher than I had originally expected. Not that I thought Grad School would be a breeze, not at all! But it was fewer classes, and I'm not active in all those extracurriculars anymore so I had hoped... ehhh, I digress.

I really can't believe that this semester is already complete. 2012 is over! Time is flying by so quickly that sometimes I feel like I'm holding on for dear life. It's insane! I mean, think about it... We leave for Costa Rica in almost 5 months! FIVE. MONTHS. I think it might be time for me to start working on my Spanish... maybe.

This next year is going to be absolutely incredible. I can already tell. Classes start next week and we get to dive even further into our topics of Hotel and Restaurant Operations, Tourism Services Management/Marketing, and Policy in Sustainable Tourism. It may sound like a lot of jibberish, but I'm excited and you should be too!

This semester will bring many more meetings and preparation as we get ready to move abroad. There is a lot to get done in a very short period. Bonding time with the three of us will be at an all-time high, I'm sure! So prepare yourself for some more in-depth discussion on sustainable tourism topics and exciting adventures with the three of us "MISTers" haha. I will try and keep up with this a little better, I promise :)
