I don't know if it's all the Thanksgiving stuffing, but I feel that my brain might not be quite ready for finals. With the finishing line of the quarter so close in my view, I feel like I might just have what it takes to make it to the end. When I arrived back from my relaxing break that was spent with my family at home, I noticed that everyone seemed to have the same determined look in their eyes. Strolling over crisp leaves and under bright skies, it is easily seen that we are all ready for the break that is long enough to be a mini winter summer. 

Tonight I got off work in the art gallery, which consisted of guarding the art while studying feverishly for my upcoming psychology exam for almost four hours. I then headed over to the Campus Center to find some relaxation by shooting some pool. Much to my childish and gleeful delight, they were playing Christmas music. Christmas cheer seems to be sweeping the campus like a festive and healthy version of H1N1 after PUC's annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony that took place outside the library. After seeing all the students gathered around the Christmas tree Monday night with candles in hand I must say that I am ready for the holiday of good tidings and great joy. 

Of course as I write it is only Tuesday, and I have much more studying to do before I can fully relax and get ready to ring in the New Year with all of the new classes that will come in tow. With all of our professors eager to make their final and lasting impressions upon our banks of wisdom, it seems that finals will never come. With all the stress that will soon pay its dividends, excitement prevails in the cool thin air of Angwin.
