School. It provides a lot of structure and something to do in the winter months. The people here are very supportive and encouraging. I feel like it contributes to personal growth.

Someone hit my car; it dented up the front end and the cooling system was all messed up. It took them two weeks to fix my front end and now it is nice, shiny and makes the girls go wild. Side note: Not like on T.V. shows, but it is all nice and shiny and I love it!

At the beginning of the semester I was in Anchorage going to the State Fair with some friends, but because of circumstances, I was in Anchorage a little earlier than intended. I was able to attend the UAA Campus Kickoff. It was a really great experience; I was able to meet many new people and visit all the vendors and clubs they had around campus. There was also other businesses from around town offering student jobs. Overall it was a beautiful day and very festive!

I got my driver's license this year. The reason that it makes this such a good year is that it gives me a sense of freedom and independence that I didn't have before.
