|This was what the forest looked like. We started calling it a "fairy forest" because it was so surreal looking.|
The next morning about half of our group went out for a morning mushroom hike. We went to another part of the state park and looked around for a bit. We were mainly looking for porcinis, which are kind of hard to find because they like to hide under logs. We found a couple, though!

The other reason my weekend was so peaceful is that MIDTERMS ARE OVER! At least, mostly. I have a Spanish test on Friday, but this week is not nearly as busy as my last month has been. That means that I had very little homework to do last weekend, which meant that I could fully enjoy the trip without worrying about what I had to do when I got back. I've been so swamped with work that I'm not sure what to do with all my time now, which mostly just means that I do my homework then watch Breaking Bad on Netflix (I know, I'm behind the game. But I'm up to season 3!).
Looking ahead, I'm feeling good. Registration starts Thursday, and I'm all set to register for my classes. I have pretty specific courses I have to take for my majors, so hopefully I get into those. The times don't contradict at all, and I'm far enough along in both majors that supposedly I have spots reserved for me in most of my classes. So, I'm pretty not stressed about that, which is great.
I hope that college applications continue to go smoothly! Please email me if you have any questions about LC, College Outdoors, mushrooms, how to manage midterms, or anything. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to answer, and will respond to you as soon as I can!
