February will be an okay month I think. Hopefully teaching picks up more. Same with the shifts I have at the restaurant. February is a busy month, D has a hockey tournament I am excited to watch, I am visiting my roommate in Toronto to go bridesmaid dress shopping, I am taking an ASL course. It is going to fly by just like January!
