I know it is that time of the year to be stressing out and worrying about papers and exams and presentations. But I have realized the importance of just taking a break from all of that and hanging out with some friends doing the random stuff. For example last week, my friends, Meghan and Jim, and I literally just sat in Meghan’s room and watched TV until 4:00am. We didn’t do anything fun, we weren’t watching anything special. We just sat there watched TV and had a long life chat. And I know that the next day I was so tired, and I complained about getting three hours of sleep, but it was so worth it. Those are the nights you live for in college. When I am older and I look back, yeah I am going to be so pumped about having a degree from Bellarmine University, but I am not going to remember what I got in my Human Health and Disease class. I am going to remember the night that Meghan, Jim and I just sat there an talked and enjoyed life together. It was so much fun and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
I wish there were more days for nights like those, where we could just sit there enjoy each others company and do absolutely nothing. But with there only being 21 days left until the summer (not that I am counting) there is so much to do in such little time. This is crunch time, get the last round of assignments done before finals week. But it is all good. This is what college is for, to learn something every once in a while. With such little time left though it is so hard to get my mind in gear. I can see summer vacation. I can see the Kentucky Derby Festival. It is so hard to focus. But I know I can do it. I just have to really put my mind to it.I cannot believe there is such little time left in the semester.
This is such a bittersweet moment. With there being such little time left, I just keep thinking about all of the awesome things that are coming up in my life. Over the summer I will be working for Group Mission Trips. I will be traveling around the country putting on service trips for high schoolers. It will be such an awesome experience. Then in the fall, instead of returning to Bellarmine University with all of my friends, I will be studying abroad at a school in Switzerland!!! I am so excited for the opportunity to study at a foreign school and live in a country where I can grow and learn so much.
Well I have rambled on enough for today. Sorry I will start posting more often so that I don’t have long posts like these past ones have been anymore.
Happy Spring Everyone!
