No, today was not my last day of classes. But it was pretty darn close. Friday will officially be the last day of the semester, and all I have between now and then is some homework, that I should probably be doing right now instead of writing this. On second thought, the only reason I am writing this is because I am waiting up until 10:00 to have a skype date with one of my best friends from high school. That's right, I would be asleep right now if it weren't for that.
What a change right? Not too long ago I had one night where I was up until four in the morning, working on a presentation for Spanish, that I ended up not even presenting the next day. Luckily all of my classes for next semester start at eight in the morning. Which means that I have no reason to be up late at night.
Anyway, that is not what I had planned to talk about. What I meant to talk about is how the year is coming to a close. I have two more days of class and three exams left. All of the decor is off of my walls, and I am slowly packing my things to send the first load home this weekend. My goal is to only have here what I will need for a week.. even though I will be here a little longer than that. I think going to boarding school for two years of my high school career has influenced my ideas of dorm-room decoration, but I just don't understand how people can live in a room for a whole year without covering up the bare, white walls.
I have finally started connecting with a group of friends outside of class and Bible Study (not that I don't love my Bible study, I just don't get to see them as often as I would like), but we have like a week and a half left to spend together. This is all so very bitter sweet. I am so ready for summer, but at the same time, I wish I had more time to get to know all of these people, because I don't know how much of them I will get to see of them next year. Especially since they are all design majors and I am in engineering and humanities.
The only thing I know to do is to be thankful that my year has been good, that I have been able to make some new friends, bond with my roommate, and have almost an entire two months at home with my family before I start working this summer. I haven't been home for that long in three years, and I think it is time for a break.
