from now I'll be in the middle of finals. This may ring true to many and may confuse the rest, but I CAN'T WAIT! This has been a hard semester, emotionally. I haven't felt the drive I usually have. For example, I usually push for a 4.0 each semester, making sure to stay ahead in all my classes (yes, ahead. Not just caught up..AHEAD). This semester I'm struggling to stay above water. I feel like I've barely made it through each week. I've struggled with wanting to quit and give up. Just walk away. I haven't felt like I have in the past where all I want is to take advantage of my educational opportunities. It's really weird and it's not me.
I've just been struggling and I'm not sure why.
So, even though I have a crap-load of stuff to do from now until finals, I'm extremely grateful the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter. Hopefully I can stick with it for the next two weeks and finish with my head held high.
...and then it's off to Minnesota we go for Christmas! It will be a much needed and very welcomed vacation!
So wish me luck. I'll let you know if I'm still alive come December 17th (The official last day of the semester).
