She's also just plain cool. She named some of the chimps she worked with "Mr. McGregor," "Mike," "Frodo," and "David Greybeard." I think they're really cool names. I'm enjoying learning about her as I work on this. We have to make our portrait "go beyond the photograph," so I'm trying to learn more about her in order to express her work and personality somehow. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to do this, but it's a fun challenge.
Spanish is pretty much wrapped up. We are watching one final movie, "Instructions Not Included" or "No se aceptan devoluciones" and then we are done. I'm also pretty much done in environmental education. We have a few more readings, but I've already written my final paper (due tomorrow) and done my final presentation. Our professor invited us to all come over to his house this weekend, where he's going to cook us chili. That's one thing I love about going to LC- students and professors get to know each other really well, and something like this isn't uncommon at all.
My last class, colonial Latin American history, is getting close to wrapping up. It's my only class with a "real" final, or at least a test/essay completed during the final period. I have a lot of studying to do, and we still have one more reading to do for Thursday.
Please send me any questions you have about LC, Portland, or anything! I'm happy to answer! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
