Seton Hill at its finest: Final crunch

I've been through this fall finals crunch thing three times, but it's my favorite time of the year at SHU.

Unlike spring, there is a tangible pay-off: Christmas on the Hill. It's the best celebration of the year.

When I don't have my mind on the unreachables of time and space (a.k.a. Catholicism final creed paper), I am thinking about my dress, shoes, make-up and jewelry for that night. Frivolous thinking is such a pleasure.

However, the list goes on. The Setonian/Eye Contact party is in a little more than a week and Christmas is -officially- on its way. Reminder to self: Bring a Secret Santa gift--$2.00 of fun.

I'm also singing with my church's choir again, so I feel very light and musical, despite the loads of paperwork and scheduled activities lining my planner.

The best part is that even when I am tired, I'm realizing that this is when every student is at the top of their game in their understandings of the subjects they've studied. This is our time to share what we have learned all fall.

So, without further ado, I'm back to it; but never fear, there's always some frivolity to distract. :-D

Actually, I was preparing for my news-writing final, when something reminded me to tell you how much I liked your Tribune-Review feature article. Also, your enthusiasm remindes me of my daughter's. She's a TV reporter (dreaded?) for an ABC affiliate (Disney Corporation) in Saginaw/Flint, Mich. Not exactly a garden spot, she covers her share of crimes and trials. She's not an anchor so she literally covers the story, writes the copy, and presents it on air--sometimes live; sometimes video. When she was a coed at Pitt, she had an article published (the university coordinated it), which appeared both in the Trib and the Post-Gazette. Take care and have a wonderful Christmas. I would wish you luck, but you won't need it.
