Almost there…

November 18, 2011

Hello again,

I’m lucky enough to be writing to you all on the last day of fall exams! Wooo!

Tonight is the last night of stressing out over grades, projects, notes, and tests for a glorious 10 days — time when we can hang out with our families, eat a lot of delicious food, and not do any schoolwork. Actually, most of us have some work to do. But the amount is tiny in comparison to the normal workload, and after a week as stressful as exam week, we can definitely all use the break. So let’s all take a moment and be thankful for Thanksgiving break.

In typical stressed-out senior fashion, I’m not spending this last night relaxing (what does that word even mean, anyway?). I’m adding footnotes to a 7-page outline: no easy task when pages is being unnecessarily difficult (which is all the time).

I actually really enjoyed doing this project, mainly because my partner and I chose the UK as our country to compare politically to the US. And I freaking love Great Britain. Make that, I freaking love the royal family. Last year I joined all of the Gehring royal-family-lovers in waking up at 4 am to watch the royal wedding, and it was WONDERFUL. For this reason, Sarah and I made most of our slides for our presentation feature pictures of Prince Harry playing polo. I hope Dr. Clarke understands.

should I use this one for political party systems or economic issues?

Good luck to everyone in their last exam! For all those with free dots, the rest of us are jealous.

Seniors: Last Fall Exam at Gould Academy…ever. Sad? Happy? Nostalgic? Exuberant? Ready to go to college? I’m all of those.

Happy R&R,
