This is it. Looking at my calendar and counting on my fingers the end of the semester is drawing near. I’ve got approximately a month before Thanksgiving break. That’s a month to wrap up most of my classes. That’s a month to prepare myself for the calm before the storm. And then the storm.
I can’t quite recall how it all went by so quickly. If I were really twisted, I would dwell on the timeline of how soon this semester will end, and then how quickly the semester after that will have come and gone and then…I find myself standing on the gorge of my life, a drop-off that I cannot see into, filled with questions that probably won’t cushion my fall out of school (i.e. the last 16 years of my life).
All the more reason to appreciate the time that I have here. Yes, I do need to focus on my classes, and yes , I do need to focus on my applications for next year. I don’t, however, want to drown the next few weeks of my life in Irwin Library, no matter HOW nice it is. So I will continue working on new projects (my next one is Sushi-making!) and building friendships and finding those moments to relax.
