Within the past month or so I have been busy with my family and my friends for the holiday season. This Christmas was about being with my friends and family and enjoying the everyday life with Christ. The same on News Year Eve. New Years Eve my parents and I went out for dinner and to my cousin Josh’s apartment for a party. I was introduced to the game of Beer Pong. I can’t drink the beer because I am gluten free but they were playing with water because so many people were drinking different things..yea me! I ended up being pretty good at it. My partner was my Uncle Steven and we played my cousin Kara and one of Josh’s roommates. They had been winning for quite a while so it was good just to keep up with them. We tied them and then they did finally beat them but I was pretty happy to do that well. It must run in the family, right Kara!
This month has been crazy with excitement building up, I am going back to school starting tonight and taking a math class, ugh I am not sure how I am going to do in the class, but rest assured I will try my best and work very hard. My Godmother and friend Ernie is my mentor for the class. I am looking forward to doing the class with her. I will also get tutors if needed.
I am going to 3 Galas this year, I am going to New York City for the annual NDSS Gala next week. I am really looking forward to meeting Lauren Potter and I am pretty anxious about that. I am attending the Gala here for Syracuse Gigi’s Playhouse and got a new dress for the occasion. I am really looking forward to going to New Jersey the following week because I get to speak at the Hillsborough New Jersey Gigi’s Playhouse Gala. They just opened this month and seem to have a lot going on. I am really excited.
I have been playing floor hockey this season, we recently went to games in Rochester and came back with a bronze medal. I am happy with that. I was the only goalie but I had fun doing it. We are having States here in my hometown of Syracuse and will keep you posted.
We have our Down Syndrome Valentines dance next month. My parents organize that and I help them with the decorations so that will be fun.
Next week class at Syracuse University young actors should start back up after the semester break, I am really looking forward to it. I can’t wait to see my friends and facilitators again.
I also had to take my 5 hour licensing class again to be able to take another road test. Glad that is done. I have another lesson and they are setting up another test. I think they are into March booking those so that will be a little while. Good, let the snow go away!
