My week of leisure has come to an end. I now have to prepare for another week of leisure ahead. The rest of my week really consisted of watching movies that I always planned to watch but really never found the time. On Friday I went around to a few campus offices and dropped of small notes to people who I’ve admired over the years. I am sorry that I couldn’t write to everyone I wanted to but I hope those who I didn’t write to know how I feel. I am most excited about next week. On Monday I need to get my car examined before I make the drive out to DC. On Tuesday I am heading to my pledge-brothers lake house for some summer fun. I will be back on campus Thursday evening to begin the graduation festivities. See you on May 13th.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, I am officially finished. On Monday I took my Economics final in the morning. When I was done with my final I felt like a weight was taken off my shoulders. Because the weight was gone, I really did not want to finish a history paper that I still had to work on. Monday evening and Tuesday morning was devoted to finishing the History paper. Tuesday afternoon I sold a few books back to the bookstore, cleaned my room and watched a movie. I am a little worried that with all this free time I will run out of things to do and catch up on sleep, which is no fun. Anyway for those of you who don’t know my graduation is May 13th at 2PM. Hope to see you there!
This weekend has been more stressful than I had hoped. Because my one and only final is on Monday I have frantically studying for Econ. I received my final grad in colloquium and I am happy to report I received an A. Saturday I believe I was suffering from a mild stomachache so I tried to take intermittent naps throughout the day while working on some Econ. Sunday was a good day but all about Econ. The more I study Econ the more confident I feel and the more I can not wait until Monday afternoon when I do not have to worry about another graph again. Sunday afternoon I received my last essay prompt from the History class. I began working on my five-page paper in the middle of commercials of Discovery’s Planet Earth. I am hoping this week will not kill me or stress me out to the point that I speed up my balding. Hopefully I will be done as a senior by Tuesday at noon.
Friday was my last day of college classes. The odd thing is that in both classes I had, we didn’t do anything particularly interesting. In my first class we took a survey about the course. In the second class we talked about what was good and bad about the course. In both classes instead of having class for the normal hour, we got to leave early. Friday is also the day I finished my senior checkout card. For next week I plan on finishing up my last final on Monday and working on a paper till about Tuesday and driving to Indy to have a part on my car replaced. I can see the metaphoric light at the end of the tunnel.
This is the last week of classes. Even though it is bittersweet I am happy to be finished with classes. The highlight of my week thus far has been a small Beta tradition called senior bottles. To make a long tradition short, it essentially is a time where the entire fraternity sits around a campfire and every senior gets their time to talk about whatever they want. I took my time to criticize a few people (who deserved it) and to make fun of others and myself. Wednesday was my last colloquium class. I haven’t decided if I am going to sell any of the books back or not. There are a few books I liked more than others. I believe this Thursday my pledge brothers are planning on going to the Purdue bars for the last time so I might tag along. Other than that I am looking forward to my final day of classes on Friday.
I apologize in the time lapse between blog posts I accidentally got locked out of my blogging account. My weekend was fairly exciting. I have never ventured deep into Michigan besides the Detroit Int. Airport. On Saturday I woke up early and corralled the boys. We drove up to Ferris State University. The some of the boys liked the fact that Ferris had a large student population and offered many different academic programs. In the late afternoon I drove separately down to a good friends lake house in South Haven, MI. There I enjoyed good conversation, wine and dinner with the neighbors before hitting the road back to Wabash. Sunday was my catch up day because I had a few assignments I wanted to complete before the weekend was out. All in all I drove about 597 miles this weekend myself (which does not include the trip to IU). Next week is my last week of classes, senior bottles, last Sons of Wabash meeting and my last semi formal. It is all coming to a close.
The rest of my week was a bit on the ridiculous side. Two of my pledge brothers convinced me to go to IU in Bloomington for Little Five. The only issue with this plan was that I had class on Friday morning. If we were going to go to Bloomington we definitely needed to wake up early to make the drive back to Crawfordsville. We all had fun that night walking around to the different bars. In the morning we all woke up in time and trekked back to Wabash so I could attend my 10:20AM class. After class I went to the motor pool and took out a campus vehicle and drove up to Albion College to meet my Project Coach guys. The drive took around 3 ½ hours. By the time I got to Michigan I was exhausted and tired of the rain. That night I got to hang out with the guys, play some bowling and learn about what is new in their lives. Hopefully the rest of my weekend is not as hectic.
