Final Exams = Yuck, therefore Yuck.
My brain is officially ready for a re-boot.
All my life, I've been on the educational cycle: study for the duration of the school year, take a summer break void of classroom focus, homework, and exams. This semester really threw me off.
Everything in me knows that it's supposed to be break time. It's super nice outside. Watermelon is in season. Weeds are growing. Kids are swimming. The smell of barbeque permeates the night breeze. It's not time for school! I can't help but feel a twinge of animosity towards my teachers. I know it's not their fault. Heck -I signed up for this. But does that mean I have to be happy about it?
No. There are other things to be happy about though. First, that the semester is now officially over. I don't have another single thing to do for school. It's all done. Second, that I'm probably going to have the opportunity to visit my family in Arizona. Third, that I'm now able to have some form of a summer break.
I've hated and loved this semester. I've hated some of the schoolwork I've had to struggle through; I say some, but I really just mean my Physics and Technical Writing class. I normally love writing -this class sucked all the fun out of it. And Physics -well, I don't even like bringing that up. I've loved the friends I've made this semester. Life continues to bring amazing, fascinating, and entertaining people into my little sphere of existence.
Here's to hoping for an amazing Fall semester. I'll be living with friends, taking some easier courses, and being a Teacher's Assistant for a few courses. I'm gonna continue the mind-set of reaching out and getting to know the people around me. I know I say it a lot, but it really is amazing what you find. It makes life so much richer. Happy Summer!
