Joy is a beautiful thing.
It’s strange that finals week is almost over. Something anticipated with such trepidation kind of deflates gradually as a balloon will if you ease the mouth open. As I tried to sell back one of my books, I was kind of shocked to find myself propelled into deja vu, remembering the same action some 7 months ago.
As school continues with its relentless progression, I look forward eagerly to the day when homework becomes a thing of the past. However, I am simultaneously prompted to reflect on the wonder that is college and living in community with so many friends and peers. When I remember that there is but one year and six months until I graduate, I want to enjoy every moment I have. Early in my college experience, that wasn’t so much the case, so I feel it even more keenly now. And I think, by and large, I really am content with where I am right now. Which is pretty amazing. 🙂
