weekend itinerary.

December 17, 2010


Did I really survive finals week?
Mais oui! Mais oui!
(I've spent all day texting people strictly in French and considered posting this blog the same way too - but that was too much work for a Friday afternoon)

Anyway, my plans over the next few days will now simply include spending an afternoon with my grandparents, making more and more cookies, a chocolate rose ceremony (we have those when we kiss people) - mind you, I will be the one throwing the celebration, the honorary member who is the reason we're celebrating is actually somebody else...
No comment.
I'll be attending another wedding reception for my 7up brother (I plan on explaining my 7up gang one of these days), trying to get through the first half of Atlas Shrugged (anyone else read it? Or anything else by Ayn Rand for that matter? I'm kind of really liking it already) And best of all: packing sunblock and swimsuits for my Christmas vacation in summery New Zealand.

And just so the internet can share my exquisite joy... I rocked my finals. Like...never been more proud of myself than I was last night. You can even ask my mom, I spent at least an hour on the phone with her (while sitting in standstill traffic, which couldn't even bring me down) talking about the cute boy who helped my presentation, and the A+++ I got on it afterward.

Now I can officially say: It's the most wonderful time of the year.

Congrats on your finals success! Doesn't it feel so so good to be done? I know I'll be loving life for the next couple of weeks. Have fun in New Zealand with your family; I can't wait to see photos.

And I'm so excited to meet up after the break. We are meant to be friends!

Cute Boy? Rocking a presentation? Life sounds good to me!

yess! I read Atlas Shrugged a little over a year ago. I thought it was totally interesting! Really made me see the world in such a different way and think about stuff.

The "speech" which you will become well acquainted with, does feel a little repetitive at the end, and I heard that a lot of people skip it, but I read it all and enjoyed it. My sister is reading it now!
