  • Feast of Saint Agnes on January 20th (virgin and martyr) – My high school was founded by the Sisters of Saint Agnes, so she is pretty special to me.

Other Things I’m Looking Forward to in January

  •  Montana Winter Fair (January 30-February 1)
  • The days will start getting longer again. I really don’t like the dark until around 7am and then dark by around 5pm. I’m missing the sun…
  • School starts again! I have to say I am looking forward to going back to school. It has been so strange not being there the past week and this week. I have to say that I am missing my students, even the more interesting ones.
