This past two weeks have been insanely hectic between finals and packing. Last week was crazy because of the amount of written work and papers I had due, and because I had fallen behind when I was out of town the previous weekend. This week was crazy because of last minute cramming for finals and because of packing. I’ve eaten an entire jar of Nutella in the past week alone!
I came from California with two suitcases, and two boxes–one shipped from California and one shipped from Yellowstone, both containing huge duvets. I had ordered a bunch of things online and bought things throughout the year, but I was still astounded at how much stuff I managed to accumulate. Thankfully, I managed to get a space in the school’s storage room for the summer, so I didn’t have to worry about where I’d leave my things I wasn’t taking with me. I shipped a box containing a duvet to Yellowstone, and managed to make my suitcase weigh 54 pounds. For future reference, sweatshirts are heavy–I removed two and stuck them in my carry on to make the right weight!
Finals always stress me out because while I can be relied upon to write a relatively decent paper, I am a horrible test taker. My final for US Foreign Policy was a written essay which made me happy because I am one of the weird people who loves in class essays, but my finals for Spanish and Computer Organization were immensely stressful, mainly because I also had to pack and that turned out to take a lot more time than I expected. Still, it could have been worse–I had my friends stressing out with me through late nights in the library and in the basement of DMC, and Glar provided lots of hot chocolate and brownies.
