Halfway through finals is worth celebrating, right? It’s still going to be a long week, but I’m looking forward to taking it easy after Thursday. Finals week is a funny thing; you have way fewer class sessions to attend, but you’re about twice as stressed as usual. But I suppose that’s a pretty common student experience.
The nice thing is that the University recognizes that and caters to it. I’m really starting to appreciate the extended library hours, which will be 24/7 for the rest of the week. The coffee, water, and hot chocolate is also nice, though I’m not one for caffeine. It’s a pretty full week, between studying and working it’s amazing any of us can actually find time to take exams, but after Friday another semester will be over, with three weeks until the next one.
That doesn’t mean that we’re all done with responsibilities until January 11, though; Admissions is open for a large portion of the break. So if you have a chance to swing by and want to see the campus in wintry conditions, give us a call. Speaking of which, I think that our Facilities and other service fields on campus deserve a big tip of the hat. The weather’s been all over the place for the last two weeks, from rain to fog, all the way to a blizzard, and yet the campus has stayed pretty clear (I haven’t hit the ground yet). So if anyone from those departments happens to be reading, thanks for keeping the grounds traversable.
Well, now is as good a time as any to wrap up, I’ve still got a couple of hours to spend here, maybe I’ll swing by the gym, and then the rest of the day will probably be spent studying. Hopefully, at least.
