Flunking Thai

Finals are officially over, and my first semester at the University of Utah has been completed. I didn't apply myself this semester, and I'm going to pay the price with my GPA. I suppose that I'm allowed to slack for one semester (at least that's how I'm justifying my laziness. ) Next semester is going to be awesome, and I'm setting a personal goal of a 4.0. I know I'm capable of pulling out four A's, and quite frankly, success is easier than failure. When I don't perform to my optimum capacity I feel such an immense amount of disappointment that it isn't worth it. I acquired a great amount of knowledge during the fall semester, and I'm finally feeling oriented with the campus and the new learning environment. What is done can't be reversed, and I'll just have to deal with it. A three week break should leave me sufficiently refreshed to take on an arduous course load.

On a lighter note, I'm hell bent on going to Thailand in October. Ben found a gym that has trained some "gods" of Muay Thai, and they train women. The exchange rate for the USD to the Thai Baht is amazing, and financially I seriously think we can swing it. We'd go for a full month, and with any luck we can talk Rob into going with us! I am going to train my ass off (more than usual) so that I'm capable of surviving on the trip. Basically, I've resolved in my head that I'm going, and nothing is going to stop me!
