I keep reminding myself as we head into exams that even though there is a lot going on, and frankly I would rather be sitting outside on a patio sharing drinks and conversation with good friends than sitting in the library or my apartment making outlines and note cards trying to study for my exams that are a week away, at least i am an adult who gets SUMMER VACATION!!
I know exams stink no matter if you are in high school or taking the Bar exam, but spring exams are awful!! It is just starting to get warm so you want to go outside but you can’t read your computer screen, or the wind blows your papers, or you internet doesn’t reach, or (like in my case) the only options to go outside around my apartment are, for lack of a better word, creepy.
I live downtown and 99.99999% of the time LOVE it. But when the weather gets nice and I want to do my homework on a porch I can’t. What I would give to go back to high school studying for exams where my friend Kim and I would sprawl out by the pool or on a raft carefully holding the textbook that was school property (back then we didn’t have to buy the books so a few were splashed and one French book died when Kim moved on the raft and both went under water).
I am getting prepared to start my finals preparations and realize I am nowhere near where I need to be but I look around and think that most my class is in the same boat. So tonight with my MBA finals done I am giving myself a break and taking the night to enjoy some weather and some friends! I hope everyone is getting ready for a great summer! I personally am so excited about my summer internship I am ready for warm weather and friends and new experiences!
