We are now officially done with the first semester of our Master's Program. These past 5 months have gone by so quick, but I have learned so much, I barely noticed that time has past. The last test covered the GI system, and it was really interesting to learn about the different receptors in the gut and the various drugs that can be used to combat gastrointestinal issues. Although I definitely want to learn more, it will be nice to have a 2-week break to relax.

Cole and I went to SciHigh a couple more times in December to help Mr. Harris' class as they prepared for their final test of the semester. We went over their study guide with the same students that we have been working with over the past month. I definitely think that we have gotten a good relationship with the students going as we can really see the improvement of the students. It has gotten to the point where they barely need our help anymore. It is rewarding to come back to the classroom after the tutoring session and see a look of gratitude from Mr. Harris. I cannot wait to go back in January and continue tutoring.

This month has been very odd in terms of weather.  One day it will be 75 degrees and beautiful, and then the following day will be 45 degrees with 20 mile per hour winds. I guess that sort of represents New Orleans in a nutshell: you really never know what you are going to get each day but either way, you find a way to make the best of it.

'Til next time.
