Catching up

It's been a while since I had a personal post just for myself, or at least one that I've put public. So just a quick reflection...

A brick wall hit me when I returned a couple of weeks ago from spring break. It was this mounting mountain of neverending tests and all-too-important exams and then...this week, this morning actually, sitting our exam room as the four hour exam clobbered everyone's hopes for college, I realized that after these two weeks of brutal testing, I'm done. Well, technically not done, but so, so close. The most excruciating part of my four years here will be ending its climax and it'll start winding down, and I can finally sigh and pat myself on the back, all that, because the worst is over, and even though I've emerged somewhat mangled and maimed in the head a bit, it's done.

And it's been warm lately. So warm. 85 may not seem like terribly hot weather, but to me it felt summer was so close I could stick out my tongue and just taste it and breathe it in and think wow just get me through this month and everything will just fly by from there onto uni.

I always get that first feeling of summer when the nights become sweet enough to leave the windows open. Somehow the days seem to jump so quickly from it's-too-cold-to-wear-anything-but-thick-frumpy-jackets to the days of it's-too-hot-to-even-bother-dressing-nice. Uncomfortably cold to irritatingly warm, and no room in between for a combination of nice pretty layers.

Anyways. Just got to suck it up these last few weeks and hold my breath until June 2nd.

  1. Hang in there, and savour the last few days of school!

    I miss my schooling days, when worries were much fewer than now and laughter came around a lot more often. ♥
