No. School. Till (after). Fourday.

Monday, October 10, 2011

The halfway mark of the semester is almost upon us.

6 weeks of school finished - and a wonderful four day weekend as a reward.

Fourday has been...quiet.
Very quiet.

Because the majority of the campus is home, in San Francisco, the Davis PreMed conference, and apparently the Grand Canyon, I spent most of this long weekend on my own. Well, not completely. On my own, meaning myself and a unreasonably huge amount of homework.

Yes, I am that student that spent the fall vacation doing homework. And when not doing homework, watching re-runs of Bones, The Big Bang Theory, The Office and Parks and Rec in her dorm room. I live such a grand life.

But, four day has been refreshing. In the concept that for a good solid four days, I've been able to catch up on sleep, see my parents (and get a fantastic lunch at Peabodys!), do a TON of homework, get ahead of the game, and spend some alone time. It's been a beautiful weekend, and I still have a full day tomorrow. Since homework is basically done - PRODUCTIVITY B*TCHES - I think I'm going to go hang around State Street on my own, maybe do a bit of shopping, grab a starbucks, and people watch for a while.


It's been a good six weeks of school, but I'm ready for this semester to be over. I'm ready to be back home, where I know where I am, who I am, and I'm back around people who know me. I am literally counting down the days till Thanksgiving (and my first trip back home this semester), the end of the semester, CHRISTMAS, and then departure for Istanbul. In that order. With the nearest only a shy 42 days away, and the longest 87 days. Can they get here any faster? Seriously.

Well, it's 11:09pm, I'm done memorizing Greek vocabulary (and catching up on Parks and Rec, as was the plan for the evening) and I think I'm going to go to bed. Tomorrow brings a quiet breakfast with my bible, journal, and a cup of coffee - and then whatever the rest of the day will bring.

I live such a beautiful life.
