Check Mate

Just finished my last final for TWO, count them TWO, years. So that's sort of awesome.

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.

Winnie and I finally took a picture in "the big chair".
