This week has been the busiest school week of my life. Monday I ended up starting a TOTAL REWRITE of my history final paper, due Wednesday afternoon, worth 50% of my grade. Monday I pulled the very first school-induced all nighter of my life. Promptly followed by my second all nighter on Tuesday. There will be more. I've avoided all kinds of caffeine for the past 9 months or so (yay Mormons!) but I consumed like 6 monsters writing that paper. Monsters are disgusting. But I was so wired, I wrote the hell out of that paper. It was also totally bearable because I really liked the topic I was researching/writing about. So that was good to have finished.
I spent pretty much all of yesterday packing. I accumulated SO MUCH STUFF. I don't even know what to do with myself. Anyway, I managed to get it all packed away. How many bags am I taking on the airplane today? Checking 3, plus a carry-on duffel, plus my backpack. Yay for Southwest's first checked 2 bags for free! If I were flying any other airline, I'd be paying hundreds of dollars for all my crap. One small catch is that I literally don't know how I'm going to make it from the taxi cab to the check-in counter. I don't think I'm able to carry 200 pounds of luggage that far. And as we all know, unattended bags will be confiscated, so I can't really do two trips. Maybe I'll have to rent one of those stupid luggage carts. Worse things have happened.
Anyway, it's been a great year. I'm a pretty lucky kid. I'm in the 801 tomorrow, saying goodbye to some of my favorites for the next two years. Then off to Europe Sunday. Summer has officially arrived.
