Christmas Bells are Ringing

This is my last week of class for the semester. I have one website due tomorrow and one “exam” (believe me, if you were in the class, you’d know that it’s an exam only in the loosest sense of the word) on Thursday. And one final project that is basically done except for the team evaluations.

Which means that the semester is nearly over and my first year of grad school is almost done and I only have one more semester until I have a master’s degree. It sort of blows my mind that last Christmas I hadn’t even started and this Christmas I’ll be very nearly done.

And, in a few weeks, Bart and I are heading west, to the lovely cities of Las Vegas and Provo. I plan to make my mom take me straight to the library, where I’ll check out approximately fifty books and then spend the whole break on the couch. I can’t wait.

Is there anything in this world more glorious than Christmas vacation after a long and exhausting semester?
