Finals... time to break out the coffee.

As with everyone back home, it's time for us to buckle down and get our final assessments completed. This time next week we will be doing our final packing to leave Birmingham the next morning, but we have a lot of work to get done before then!

The biggest project I'm working on is a giant portfolio for my Business Start-Up class. Throughout the term I have worked with a group to run a Sim Venture business program, and in the portfolio I am so show not only what I learned, but also provide daily logs, business plans, and explain financial statements. It's a lot of work!

There are so many places and things we wish we had done, but we're out of time and out of money. We will have to be content with our final adventure in Scotland, and save all the rest for a future trip.

For those students going on this adventure next term, leave me any questions you might have in the comments below or on facebook. Raymond and I have a wealth of knowledge that could help you out!

Earlier in the week we sang with the school choir for a Christmas Carol service. It certainly put us in the mood to go home for the holidays! We're lucky that we get to see our family for Christmas, as many of the international students are staying over the holidays for finals in January. We were able to work it out for all of our classes to either submit them before we leave or take them at home in the academic testing center.

We'll be home for Christmas!
