Another Semester Out the Door


Where did this semester go? I swear I feel like I was just starting class with fresh notebooks and pencils and pens, and now I'm recovering from all the Christmas on the Hill excitement and the coming finals. I have been through so much this semester that I'm surprised I made it through. I've had the bad room mate experiance yet again, the broken heart, the mad rush to finish assignments and do all the research, and above all the memories. It's amazing how many are made in one semester.

Christmas on the Hill was amazing this year. Everyone looked wonderful and a good time was had by all. (Some had a little too much fun if you catch my meaning.) The food at dinner was amazing, and Bishop Bosco did a beautiful job at mass. I couldn't have asked for a better night to finish off the semester. Although I did break my shoe, I still had fun. I wish that we could just freeze time at the point where everyone was laughing and having a good time, but life needs to move on. I personally let out a lot of feelings last night as I know others did as well.

Last year at this point I was dreading the up coming week, however I'm not really this year. I feel more prepared to take on life than I ever have before. I am actually looking forward to coming back to school during J-Term even though I'll be here by myself. I'm looking forward already to the time when everyone comes back and spring semester is in full swing. As I finish up this semester and the excitement of Christmas approaches, I just can't help but look to the future. People keep telling my I'm dreaming my life away, but I look at it as moving toward the time where I will be of assistance to life, at least more so than now.

And so I finish by wishing all good luck on their finals, a happy safe break, happy holidays, and I'll see you in the spring!

I will come visit you when you are here all alone, goodness, i live a little more than 30 minutes away, and i will be out here visiting people and working, so im sure i can come visit you too! Maybe we can go see a movie or something, just enough that you don't get bored and lonely for three weeks all alone.

Hey Tiff, I'm still going to be trekking to SHU during J-term--for workstudy AND my internship--so I'd be happy to visit and do lunch or something like that. Just tell me when :-) And we can get on our feet for spring semester together! I'm ready to go. I can't wait to be back.

Sounds like a plan to me! As long as I have money!

I would offer my company, but I'll be out of the country. So, if I don't see you (and all you blogginators out there) Happy Holidays and I'll see you all Jan. 23rd.

Wow! You guys are great! Evan I hope that you have fun outside this country. Traveling is a BLAST!

Arguing over American Lit huh? Well, I'll have to think about that. I didn't do as poorly as I thought in the class, so maybe I had better hide while I can!

Have an amazing Christmas all!
