Thoughts on being a second-semester senior


I am a second-semester senior.  I am not really sure how I feel about this, honestly.  Well, first of all, I'm exhausted.  I just finished my last final this afternoon at 4:30.  It was one of those essay based tests that takes all three of the three hours given.  I won't miss that. (Also, there's a solid chance that I'll do it again next semester, but I'm going to pretend in this moment of post-exam euphoria that all schoolwork I will ever do is behind me.  Also, I'll be heading to graduate school next year to study occupational therapy (more to come on that) so there will be plenty of tests in my future.  BUT we're not going to talk about that right now.)

I don't really know what to say except for YES I AM GOING TO WATCH SO MUCH TV.  Also, I'm flying to Israel tomorrow to visit my sister who is there on a gap year, and I'm super excited.  I'll send you all an update from the airport. 

So, until then, this second-semester senior is going to nothing and remind herself that a thesis is only a paper and can be ignored for a few days.  I'll go work on that later.
