I haven’t written a blog post in a little while now, so I thought it was probably about time. It’s been quite cold here for quite some time. Boston actually tied the record for longest stretch of days at or below 20 degrees F. The record was set exactly a century ago, which I think is kinda cool. Now it’s warming up to above normal temperatures though and everything is melting, which I consider a good thing. You really never know with New England.
It’s officially November. You know what that means? It’s officially the holiday season. Yes, I’m one of those annoying people who starts playing Christmas music November 1st. I know a lot of people disagree with this, but I love Christmas music, and I work my (‘scuse my french) ass off at Hamilton, so I’m going to play Christmas music if that’s what makes me happy. So feliz navidad everyone.
It’s that time of year again. Test, more tests, then more tests after that. I feel like it’s almost always that time of year though. Except for summer and syllabus week. Nevertheless, I had my first Organic Chemistry II exam last week and I have my first Developmental Biology exam tonight. Then I have my first Econ exam next week. I’m taking Environmental Economics. Right now it’s super easy and chill… *knocks on wood*. I really did just knock on wood.
Hi everyone! Can you believe summer is over? Or maybe it’s not for you, but it is for me. I mean, technically we still have until September 22nd until summer is over, but classes started on Thursday so it sure does feel like it’s over. On top of that, it’s been low 70s here, which is very abnormal. Honestly, I’m totally fine with it, because it means my dorm room isn’t scorching hot, but it’s not typical Hamilton weather.
I meant to post this yesterday, but lost track of time and so here I am posting it on Monday. Maybe it’ll be a good way to start your week off though. This summer is going by so fast. I’ve already been home for over 10 weeks! In some ways, it feels like I just finished the semester. But, in other ways, it does feel like it’s been a long time, and a great time!
Here I am, writing another life post… about a month later from my last. So much for the every 2 weeks goal I set for myself. Well, I’m here now, and that’s what counts!
I’m officially home for the summer now. Last time I wrote in my cookie crumbles, I spoke about the finish line and the eventual return home, but I was still in finals mode. Which, by the way, I did very well on all my finals and in all my classes, which I am proud to say (even organic chemistry!).
I actually almost remembered to write this in time! This is a crazy time of year for me and all other college students across the country. The final stretch. Next week is the last week of classes (except for that one awkward Monday that we still have classes for). After that is exams week. This means two “reading days” that are dedicated to allowing us to prepare for exams. Then, they start and everyone goes into crazy stress mode.
I always forget to write these. What can I say, I have organic chemistry to study for. Well, in between the time that I wrote the last cookie crumbles post and now, lots has happened. I had spring break and went to Washington D.C., then went home and baked a ton, then went to NYC and saw Phantom of the Opera. Since then, it’s been a studying craze, with some baking in between as well, of course.
I’m still here, I promise! I’ve been busy busy studying. Lots of studying. Mostly organic chemistry, and a real shock here, but I’m not a fan. But I’m still chugging along. I’m also taking marine biology this semester, which I love. Then I’m taking public health as well, which is not very challenging, but it is interesting, so I still like it. Finally, I’m taking photography. This is probably my favorite class. It’s so different from my other intensely academic classes, so it’s a big relief.
