We then went to Kristy’s room and talked with her until it was time to go to Celest’s birthday breakfast. We went to the Chat Room Café. It was a cute little café and good food and coffee. Quite a few people showed up for her birthday so it was fun! Then when we got back I went to the library to ask if they would buy back textbooks, but they don’t. So I went to the residence office and she said she will see what they can do and I’m to come back tomorrow. When I got to my room I updated and uploaded photos to my computer. Then I studied accounting theory until 1. I then tanned until 2, when I headed to the gym to bike and do plank routine. When I got back to my room I looked at my northern classes and studied non-profit accounting for a while. Then I wrote out all my accounting theory on note cards, so it’ll be easier to study and I did that until 10pm.

After breakfast and asking around, I got my computer to reconnect to the internet in time to log into my collaborate session for non- profit. But I realized I calculated the time zones wrong and it wasn’t for another two hours. So then I went to the library to print off my non- profit notes and my flight itinery. I then talked to Kristy and she said she would love to sell my textbooks for me. Then I got back to my room and logged on again for our collaborate session which lasedt an hour and 15 minutes. Then I studied non-profit for a little bit before I laid out to tan. AT 2, Ryan and I headed to the gym. I aqua jogged for a half hour and then did ball routine. On our way back we stopped at the JCR to sign all the international kids’ flags. Afterwards I showered and studied non- profit a little more and then took the test. When I got done with the test I went over to Ryan’s room and talked with him for a little bit. When I came back I studied accounting theory for the rest of the night.

Then I started the hike to the gym for my test. When I got there I stood there for about 10min until people started lining up to be seated and realized I forgot to bring my student ID card and without it I can’t sit for my exam, so I sprinted back to my room which is a half mile away. So when I got back I was out of breathe and sweaty and the lady who checked my ID thought I was crazy. But then I went into the gym and I didn’t know where to sit so I had to go up in front of everyone and ask the lady where my seat was. We found my seat and I got through a three hour test in an hour and 20min. Then I went to the gym to say goodbye to Katelin and Hayden. Then I went back to my room and showered and then packed everything up and brought it to Ryan’s room. I then checked out of my room and Ryan and I went to supper.
