Countdown: Six Days

Here it is, Thursday.  I leave next Wednesday.  Am I feeling like time has flown by? Definitely. I feel like I barely have time to catch my breath after finishing up school.  It’s amazing how the moments fill up.  I have all these things I want to do before leave, people I want to spend time with.  I’m having to realize that I can’t do EVERYTHING one. last. time.  It’s just not possible.  BUT I will do all that I am able to.

School is officially over for the quarter, as of today.  I had finished finals and such, but today I had my last class period.  There is such a feeling of accomplishment when you’ve finished a quarter.  I am beginning to love that feeling.  In fact, I still love school! Is that weird, or what? haha. I get an amazing sense of satisfaction from increasing my knowledge in new subjects.  I always considered myself terrible at public speaking.  I now have the skills to speak in public and to do it well!!  Who knew?! I now look at art differently, and have a better understanding of the history of western civilization over the past 250 years. I have also explored compositions by Mendelssohn, Debussy, Bach, and Chopin.  While it may seem overwhelming and frustrating at times, I always remind myself of what I am gaining and it renews my vigour. 🙂 

On a different note, I have really enjoyed getting in a bunch of last minute get togethers with friends.  On Tuesday this week, a group of friends and I went to Friday Harbor to have lunch and to do some window shopping.  I had SUCH a fun time!!  I feel so blessed to have so many good friends.  I can’t even begin to explain to you what a blessing it’s been to me the past several years to have these friends that have the same goals in life, that have the same desires.  Looking forward to having lunch with Linnea tomorrow then with Mom on Saturday. 🙂
