So, hi there! Apologies, ten million of them, for being M.I.A. lately, but there is certainly a lot to share. The good news is, it is the end of the semester, so I can divide my attention among things that have been ignored these past few weeks. Moreover, it is "summer", so I am thrilled!!!
Last weekend I went home for the Sweet Onion Festival in my hometown, and I basically stuffed my face with funnel cake until I felt queasy. It was worth every bite. The weather was breezy, the fresh lemonade was perfect, so it made for a relaxing weekend before finals. Anyhoo, I am sharing those pictures next week so stay tuned!
The weekend before the last, my family visited Statesboro. As you can imagine, I got some free clothes and lunch out of their visit, so I always welcome their company (Haha!). The title of this post is significant for two reasons. 1) I am so behind on the week number that I opted for formal titles instead. My blog is a series of stories, so maybe it deserves more than just uncreative titles. 2) Yes, for lunch in Statesboro, at Chicken Salad Chick, I ordered a turkey club sandwich. Sorry, I am not a chicken salad eater, and I can attest to the greatness of my decision. No regrets for living on the edge.
This week was finals week, and last night, at 12:50, I was officially done with everything for the semester. It seems silly, but my literal comment to myself was: That's it. You did it. You are done. It was a moment that brought a smile of sheer delight to my face. It has been a semester to say the least, but thankfully, it is over. Now, I am patiently waiting for results. Earlier this week, I submitted my research proposal, and I felt a weight lift from my shoulders. Not that it has been a burden, but that it has been eating at a large portion of my brain space. I chose to make this semester and the summer semester the brunt of my research activity because I know my senior year will be a roller coaster. I expect it to be the type of roller coaster that is a short ride, a mere blink, and it will be over with. Time always flies. Senior year always has a habit of flying before your eyes, so much of my focus starting this fall will be on post-undergrad plans, which are still, very much under construction.
My plans for the summer are set with classes, so I am tricking myself into believing it will be a summer of fun. However, these days, much of the fun is seeing work completed and results speaking for themselves. It is always the little things that are the most rewarding! Hope you have an far out week, and I suspect my timeliness on posts will improve in the coming weeks, before I return back to Statesboro.
