Who says you need to be awake to learn things? – Mid-Michigan Chevy Girls

Still sleepy from my late night the night before, I dragged myself out of bed bright and early to head to a marketing class. I didn’t want to at the time, because I REALLY wanted to catch a couple more hours of sleep. I’m so glad I did though. I absorbed some new ideas, and the group I was with really meshed well and worked well together. I like how the class material is probably the same from group to group, but that each session could turn out differently because every person in the group brought their own unique perspective and experiences to the discussion. I prefer this kind of setting these days to the traditional class model that I’m used to where the teacher talk talk talks and the students write write write.

Post class, I headed out to spend the rest of the lovely day at grandma’s. My mother and baby (ha! he’s almost 10. TEN! How does that even happen???) brother also came out. Baby brother Mikale had a cool science project to work on. It involved eggs. And packing material. And dropping said eggs from a high place. I took photos of the results for them.

By the time I left, it was dark out and usually that bugs me more. I don’t like driving at night. I feel like I can’t see anything properly. But! The headlights on the Cruze are awesome and have a really far reach. So much less stressful for me! And my neighborhood is full of bunnies so I don’t have to be worried about not being able to see them either! The bunnies don’t know that they’re thankful, but they totally are. You’re welcome, bunnies!
