At the end of every week, I stop and think about how much closer I’ve gotten to graduation. This thought is both happy and sad: On one hand I’m excited to finally be done; on the other side, I don’t want to leave the people and the campus I’ve learned to love. This week, I’m glad I am still far enough away from June to enjoy life at Pacific Union College.
I know finals are just a few weeks away, and after a short Spring Break that doesn’t seem nearly long enough, it will be back into the swing of things. Then will come thesis presentations, then, at last, graduation. Before all that, however, comes this week.
Today (Wednesday) I got to sit outside for the first time in days. It finally feels like spring and the birds are singing again. I don’t know how long it will last this time, but soon the sun will join us for days on end, and I aim to soak up every ray my schedule allows.
My days aren’t the freest, and this week has been no exception. From juggling papers and illustration assignments, to 20 hours of work, it has been busy. Yet I still make an effort to fit in socializing. Tonight, for example, I will stay up to the obscure hours of morning to finish my homework, but it is a small price to pay in order to go bowling with friends. I will definitely be visiting the campus center for a cup of coffee before going over to Colloquy to hear one of my favorite professors, Dr. James Chase, speak.
I am living for this weekend, however, when first there will be a communication department pre-vespers at professor Collins’ house, then after vespers, I am helping to host the first-ever post-vespers graphic design critique session. It will be a time when students can get together and talk about our work, or just talk, outside of the classroom. I am definitely excited, and I hope this first event won’t be the last if all goes well.
Overall, it has been one great week, but I am glad it's almost over and I can move on to see what next one will have in store.
