That's right...I am baaaaacccckkkk!!!! Woohoo! It is great to be back at Skidmore and see some old faces as well as new ones (many people are coming from the first-year London program and other study abroad programs). I have started classes and they all seem really great. I am most looking forward to my business class- MB107. It is one of Skidmore's most popular and well known classes. It is special because of a project, called the executive presentation, where students are assigned teams and they must pitch an idea to executives about how to increase profit for a company. We will find out the company that we are "working" for on February 8th and I very excited! Organic Chemistry II has commenced and the good news is that I made it through one semester so who says I can't make it through a second semester? I am confident that I'll get through it. While it's great to be back, the weather has been foul. There's not too much snow, but the temperatures are low and there is a sheet of ice that makes walking to classes a little difficult. Luckily they are putting salt on all the walkways, but that always ruins my shoes. I'll take ruined shoes over a broken back though! I hope all is going well with you all and that your 2012's are off to a wonderful start.
Love always, Emmeline
