So it has been awhile since I’ve taken a trip but I am happy to say that I leave for Morocco in less than two weeks. My mom is going with me on this trip so it will be different than my last one. I am in the process of trying to pack and I am struggling to make everything fit inside my back pack. I will be gone for ten days and I only want to take on rather large backpack instead of having to pack and carry a heavy suitcase all over Morocco as we are reaching a new destination every day. I am so looking forward to having a break from school for a week. We have just finished research papers and frankly I just need to get away from work in the worst way. I have to finish grading all my rough drafts before Friday but other than that I am relatively caught up on my grading. I do have a rather large percentage of students failing this six weeks but I am honestly not sure there is anything I can do about it. I just have to get grades finalized and move on. I can make it two more weeks!!
