My, oh, my has this week been the longest, fastest week ever. I can’t believe that tomorrow is FRIDAY!
Our Christmas Break countdown is down to 7 (just hours from 6) and my last day of classes is tomorrow. I cannot believe how fast time seems to be flying around here. I blink and another day is done. In the words of Meredith Grey, “…how do we make it stop?”
It has been a trying week, both academically and emotionally. With classes coming to a close, the pressure of final exams and papers is looming overhead. Thankfully, however, our homework weekend prior to Thanksgiving Break left myself ahead of the curve and with a lot less to try and accomplish this weekend—a load off of my mind!
On the emotional front, a member of the Quad has become quite distant, quite randomly and quite suddenly. For what reason the rest of us cannot seem to identify. We have each approached her at different times to try and come to terms with the distance—find an answer really—but with little luck. Just reassurance from her that it is nothing we have done and that she is simply busy. Ouch.
So we’re left scratching our heads at the baffling absence and mourning the one who should be here to complete our set.
We’re all trying to keep each other going with lots of jokes, laughter, and tokens of appreciation. Because without these ladies I don’t know how on Earth I would have gotten through this first semester. And I try and remind them how grateful I am to have them in my life every single day. (Meredith—you rock!)
We are determined to have a great, last weekend together before Break, full of Christmas movies, homework, Christmas music, some more homework, and our very own little Christmas on Sunday.
I want to be happy, so I will be happy.
To end, the words of One Tree Hill’s Julian Baker, “Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often.”
