April 22, 1974Dear Family,
Hi! got your letters today - thanks - sorry I haven't written for so long but it seems I've been busy & times goes fast!
I had shocking news today – I got back my Soc. Psych exam and got a 90% on it! Which is a good solid 'B'. But then I took my Juvenile Delinquency exam today and thought it was really rough - so no telling what I'll get on it!
I got all the Wright State information – thanks – there are a few courses I could take there – but first I want to check it all out at the registar's [sic] office at F.A.U. But – I've been thinking and I'm not sure if I really want to go to summer school!! I think I'd rather just work & spend a couple of months w/out studying & everything that goes along w/it!! If I don't go though I wouldn't graduate till June – and I like the idea of getting out in March. But I also like the idea of NOT going this summer. Well – I'm contradicting myself!!!
We all went to the Holiday House tonight to eat – it's a buffet type of deal – except you don't get seconds on the mat. I had lamb – it was very good & of course had 2nd helping on the vegetables & salad! As of today – I've been on Weight Watchers one year – I think I can still remember what chocolate ice cream & cheese taste like!
(This) Last Sunday was so slow at work – I thought it would be though so took my Juvenile Delinquency books & got alot of studying done! Now that my manager is back I'll only be working about 15 hours a week. OH – I got a raise of 2.00 per class at W.W. – so now I make 12.00 a week when I lecture & 7.00 the weeks I clerk!! Last week all the women did real well – only _1_ of them gained weight – usually they gain more than they lose (as a group).
Mary V –– when are you out of school? I only have 11 or maybe 12 days of school left this quarter. It's kinda nice only going to school 2 days a week!
We've had a couple of phone calls from Cris – he seems to be very happy w/his job. He says it's all confidential - So far he's staying at a Howard Johnson's near the plant.
Are you all going to be able to go to Lakeside this year?
Mary V – did you buy some more stationery so you could write us?
Hope to go to the beach tomorrow – Am tired tonight – would you believe I was up at 4:30 this morning studying – the alarm went of at 4:00 – it only took me a half hour to get out of bed –
Mother – thought of you last night – had some good liver & onions & green pepper all done up together w/thickened tomato juice! Really Good!
