Ah the end! Next big thing coming up: finals. I am sure that I am not the only person right now who’s freaking out about the end of this quarter. College is definitely a huge change from when we were all in high school. It has become pretty clear that when they said our work hours would increase, they seriously meant it. I have spent countless hours in the library with Loven and Ashley; well I guess also the rest of the entire campus population. But hey, can’t complain too much, just one more week right? To all my peers: hang in there you guys, it’s going to be over soon.

Speaking of the library, while I was in there on Tuesday, I saw a huge crowd of people just outside the window. As I was sitting there I was perplexed at what was going on. Seeing my gaze, Ashley bent over to tell me that the Christmas tree was going to be lit outside the library. Sure enough a few moments later the entire surrounding area was covered in beautiful lights. Deciding to take a break, we walked out and got some hot chocolate (which happened to taste very good) and said hi to a few friends. The Christmas tree had set up a nice ambience to study around. It was definitely a welcomed moment to relax in an otherwise hectic week.

Before I sign off and go study like the rest of our campus, I would like to give one more shout out to the bravest people I know. The Newton caroling crew, you guys are absolutely insane! It is literally 26 degrees outside at night. I don’t think I need to say any more about that haha. Alright let’s get back to working on finals so we can go home!
