Hey everyone,

I apologize for not having posted in so long (can you believe it's been nearly a MONTH!?).  I know you all must be very disappointed.  I've been pretty busy with exams and finals.  My Thanksgiving was spent studying, regrettably, but I also wasted a lot of time.  I didn't go to any of the Black Friday sales this year (for some reason, I just wasn't in the shopping mood), but my parents did and they bought me some things.  Isn't that the best?  I didn't even have to ask for anything or wait in line!  Thanks, Mom!

Everything got pretty serious Sunday night after Thanksgiving when my FRI final lab report was due by midnight.  I turned it in a mere 7 minutes before it was due, but I got 50/50 on it!  YES!!!  And then things became even more serious on Wednesday that week with my Physics lab practical (Don't ask.  The average was a 53 for my section.) and Thursday with my last Cell Bio test.  Despite getting the highest grade in my class both on the test and overall, it was a rough week.

But then, there was SURGe FUNDAY on Friday which made everything better!  The desserts were SWEET!! Literally.  Did anyone else have those chocolate pastries?  DE-LI-CIOUS!  I had about 3 before I realized my sugar and fat intake was nearing a dangerous level.  But I worked it off with some bowling at the Union Underground!  Sadly, I did not get any strikes this time, but it was still nice to relax a little before finals week.  That Friday, my lab group and I also went to dinner at Olive Garden.  It was my first time going there and I got the Ravioli di Portobello, which was pretty good, but I couldn't even finish half of it.  Maybe I should have just gotten the Garden Fresh salad instead...

Today was my last day of finals- YIPEE!  I'm just going to say they were fine because I don't want to jinx myself.  As much as I couldn't wait for the semester to end, I was sad to realize on the bus while going home that today would be the last time I would be on campus in 2011.  I came home and didn't know what to do with myself.  Isn't it ironic how we can't wait for classes to be over, only to realize when they ARE over, that we don't have anything to do?  I always feel this way.

But there is a good side to this.  The reason you don't know what to do is because you can do anything!  The possibilities are endless!  At least for a month.  Maybe you want to re-learn OChem and be on top of your game come spring semester (guilty).  Maybe you want to watch movies and read fanfiction all day.  Or maybe you just want to catch up on all the sleep and home-cooked food you missed during those all-nighters in your dorm room.  Whatever you do, I wish you all a very happy holiday season.  Thanks for reading and I'll see you in 2012!


P.S. The title refers to what my Calculus professor would say every day when he dismissed us from class.
