These past four months have flown by. I left Scranton for the summer last night after my last final exam, and I cannot believe it. I was so sad to leave, and I already miss my friends. (It’s going to be a long summer…)
Last weekend, I was home for my cousin’s wedding. It was so much fun! I wish it had been a different weekend, though, since I missed out on a couple of the last days of the semester with all my friends! While I was home, I baked cookies, cracker candy, and bellybuttons and packaged them up in individual treat bags for everyone on my floor 😀 . I love cooking and baking, and figured this little surprise would ease my floormates’ stress a little bit. Everyone was so incredibly sweet and grateful, and it made my week to be able to put a smile on their faces! It was a win-win situation all around because baking treats calmed me down, and receiving baked goods calmed other people down or at least gave them some motivation 🙂 Even though finals week is supposedly miserable, I had a great week! Of course I was studying hard for my exams, and I was nervous for a couple of them… but, the weather was nice for the majority of the week (a few showers here and there, but lovely otherwise!) so I spent a lot of time studying outside. I also knew that I have been working hard all semester and doing well in my classes, so I should not worry for my exams… it is so much easier to study when I’m not panicking. 🙂
I honestly cannot believe this school year is over. I feel like it flew by, especially this semester. This has been such a great semester for me and I cannot wait to get back to school next semester and pick up right where I left off!
In the meantime, I hope to have a fantastic summer! I just got back from the library… I think the best part of the summer is having so much time to read for leisure! I am also going on vacation with my family to celebrate my younger sister’s graduation from high school and my older sister’s graduation from college (University of Maryland, College Park). And last but certainly not least, I will be seeing my favorite person twice this summer!! Taylor Swift!!! I am going to two of her shows on the 1989 World Tour and I could not possibly be more excited.
I hope everyone has a terrific, safe, and beautiful summer. I cannot wait to post an update in three months because that will mean I am back at Scranton! 🙂
