Heidelberg and Back

Down to the wire...I've got six minutes to write before I'm done for this year @ John Knox. Below is a blog I started a week or so ago, with a few amendments. I'm a lousy blogger, I know!

Well, it's been a while since I've last typed anything. There are two reasons for that. First, I've been extremely busy with class work. As everyone knows by now, we are in class from 8:30am - 4:00pm everyday. But, the work rarely stops there. We typically spend our evenings coding as well!

We are all in the process of working in our groups to develop our programs. I am in a group with Jennie, Angela Zeck and Anthony Schaaf. We are developing at website called "FlikNews," which is an online student journalism project that connects students from around the world using topics of global interest. We are still very much in the development stages, but, with the great work of my group, we will probably have something up by Friday (our last day.)

Although most of our time is spent in the classroom, we've managed to find some time for fun and relaxation. You may recall that a couple of weeks ago, a group of us travelled to Chamonix, at the base of Mt. Blanc. This past weekend, the same group headed to Heidelberg, Germany. Like our previous trip, we didn't do much planning. The day before the trip, I managed (with help from Marc at the JKC) to rent a 9 passenger van, instead of each of us playing for the train. The train was about $300 per person. After we paid for gas, it was only about $85 each for the van.

Okay....more coming soon. Out of time!
