Coming up for Air

Hello! I’ve been out of commission for the last two days because I had two exams and a whole bunch of stress to get through. But now I’m finished with the worst part of the week, so I’m back to tell you all about it!

Rewind to Wednesday morning: I woke up at 7 a.m. after sleeping for 10 HOURS! I can’t believe it. I guess my headache was sleep-related because I did not wake up once the entire night.

Breakfast was quick and easy because I needed to do more studying for my Comm Law exam:

After breakfast, I studied all morning, right down to the wire. I was worried I was going to be late to my test, but I made it in time. My test was NOT GOOD. But luckily I can afford to get a bad grade and still do alright in the class.

In Religious Studies we are watching For the Bible Tells Me So which is one of my favorite documentaries! I’ve seen it a bunch of times, but it’s still great.

Lunch yesterday was super exciting: veggie nachos! I love them so much.

Awesome strawberries they’ve had all week:

Then we had our staff meeting, which got me stressed out again. Closing the building is going to be REALLY stressful during finals week! AH! I need to work on my study schedule soon so I can get it all done.

We were having an event for the Journalism and Communication community, so I waited for our guest speaker to arrive and then let the rest of the staff handle the event while I headed out to Bread Co. for dinner and chemistry studying. I think it really helped to get out of the building and do some studying.

Another thing that lifted my spirits yesterday was the LOVELY finals care package I received from Hannah’s mom, also known as Mother Nature:
