Freedom!

I finished my last final exam and turned in my term paper today at 11:40am! I’ve been in school so long, I forget what it’s like to be myself! I’m a completely different person when school is out–no stress, I don’t feel guilty for spending time doing “nothing,” I go out and have fun with friends…I am really looking forward to the end of next semester, when I graduate with my B. S.! Literally, the moment I left the exam this morning, my world changed. I’m waiting for my brain to start working again and list all the books I’m going to read during the next 3 weeks…that’s literally what I wait for all semester long!

I was up past midnight last night finishing up my paper on Major Depressive Disorder for my biomed physics class. It’s a fascinating topic, but not at midnight. At that point, staring at the inside of my eyelids was all I wanted to do. I got up at 6:30am to finish it then headed to my exam at 9. It was a 10-question exam but it took me an hour and 40 minutes! And I was the second person to finish in class. Yikes. My hand was getting tired from all that writing. It was so gloomy this morning I thought winter had actually arrived. But by the time I stepped out of the classroom, it was bright and sunny again! Good try, Florida skies. At least I can keep my bedroom window open today! That’s a sure sign something is right with the weather.

Let’s be glad it’s so bright we can’t see how dirty the window is, K? 😉

First up after my exam was LUNCH. In the dead quiet of the exam classroom, my stomach was growling! Embarrassing! I made a simple sandwich with spicy mustard, homemade pickles (my boyfriend makes the BEST, even though he’s never tried them and he doesn’t like pickles…), ham, turkey, and cheddar. I grilled it to crisp up the gluten-free bread (the kind we get is pretty fragile).

And now I’m enjoying a cup of hot tea (something fancy & fruity from Teavana, I made it at my boyfriend’s house before I left) as I decide whether I should pack for my cruise on Monday or read a book. Hmmm.

TTYL! ❤ Gina

The Jazz24 app! I discovered this radio station from Seattle online during my freshman year. It’s written my college papers with me ever since.
