The End is in Sight

It's the last week of school, I just had my final final today, and I am increasingly experiencing the pleasant sensation of not having anything pressing to do at the moment. I still have stuff to do (the biggest fish on my list is a summer job), but gradually the spaces between "must-do-this-right-now!" things are widening. It's really nice.

Plus, my parents are coming in tonight around midnight for graduation so tomorrow I get to see them, too. It's been a very (insanely) busy semester--I've had frequent fifteen hour days (no joke)--but, trust me, I mean it when I say I feel like I've learned a lot about hard work, time management, but most of all, how not to stress out over projects. I just turn it off. It's like flipping a switch and turning off all the power in the house. Kinda eerie.

I have since decided that total lack of emotion is also boring, and what with things easing up it will be easier to both not stress and get my work done reasonably (and hey! enjoy some of this stuff!). It's been good and I think I can respect myself more for the lessons I've learned (though I still have more to learn in the time management and hard work departments). Most of all, though, I get a break now! I will, with any luck, soon be working eight hour days! For which I am very excited. (money! and not that much work!)

Okay, too many exclamation points. I'm making myself tired. Well, I've got stuff to do. :]

Money! Is great! Congratulations! On finishing your semester!

Sorry, I wanted to get in on the exclamation point thing.

Kar said...

You mock my pain.

Alright, well, 'pain' is probably a strong word for it.


Su said...

Life is pain, anyone who tells you otherwise is selling you something, blah blah blah Princess Bridecakes. :)

Lynne Truss, in her book Eats, Shoots and Leaves (which you should certainly read in all your newly-found free time) warns against the overuse of the exclamation mark. But I just can't help it. Save me! Save me from so many exclamations!

Also, that is a ridiculously long word verification. Would that they were real words.

Kar said...

Princess Bridecakes!? Is that a new franchise??

My mom told me about that book; it sounds funny but honestly there are other books higher on the list right now for me. :P

I've started writing down the word verific.'s that look like fun words. Just haven't figured out what I'm going to do with 'em yet.

Su said...

It could be a new franchise. Although I shudder to think what would be sold there.

WHAT could be more important than good punctuation?

Here's another one for your collection: konmssvh. I think. Usually I get a letter or two wrong the first time b/c I can't read them very well.

Yep. Here's #2: zqmfgs

lol...Is it sad that we get two or three per comment, just b/c it takes us that long to figure them out? It's like a charge--

"Two illegible comment codes (?) per comment."
"Aw, man--"
"I'm sorry; that's the deal."
