So, here I am. It’s Valentine’s Day, which is an absolutely meaningless quasi-holiday in my life at this point. (Actually, it has always been fairly meaningless for me, now that I think about it … )
But never mind my non-existent love life. The really important fact of life for me right now is that I have completed the first week of my last semester at Hartwick College. I’m so excited I could just about piss myself.
Well, probably not, really …
I’m taking two Economics courses, one Anthropology course, one Spanish course, and TAing in one Economics course. Pretty full schedule. Plus, I am somewhat reliably informed that from here through graduation in May, I’m going to be furiously busy doing senior-ish things, the likes of which I cannot imagine right this second.
As of this moment, the semester seems like every other semester that I’ve ever taken. I don’t know if that’s going to change but, if it does, it probably won’t happen until next month at the earliest. Next month is when I find out where I got into graduate school. Once I know that (meaning, once I know where I’m moving to over the summer), I expect the pace of events to pick up just a tad.
In the meantime, I’ll be spending a significant amount of time privately squee-ing inside my head at the thought that I’m almost done!!!
It might not seem like such a big deal to you (especially since I’m not really almost done, because I have another 5 years ahead of me in grad school) but it is HUGE to me.
Perspective is everything. And I am disinclined to take anything for granted at this stage of the game.
