Today was a blur. This morning, I had a midterm in Physics II and then another in Introduction to Criminal Justice. I likely failed one and aced the other. On the shuttle in, it was snowing heavily which was a total surprise. Fortunately, it didn’t amount to anything; in a couple of hours I’ll be surrounded by snow anyway! I’m currently in the airport waiting for my flight home. Even though I only get four days at home, they’re going to be packed. I have nearly every day planned out both for seeing people (and horses) and eating. I’m traveling home with Georgetown Cupcake, of course, and have plans to get donuts from Allies, Chinese, chocolate mouse and birthday cake, just to name some highlights.
Today marks one month of me being back in DC and I couldn’t be any more ready to go home. I had a rough start to the semester, and depending on how my midterms went, things may or may not be getting better. However, the only thing on my mind right now is getting four days of escape from my school routine, even if I did just (finally) get adjusted last week. I’m definitely in desperate need of a vacation. Taking regular vacations from school is crucial for me. I unplug completely and even delete my email off of my phone. Even though I love going to school far away, I live for my trips home; I’m a total homebody. Getting away from school, even if just for a weekend, makes the semester seem more manageable and gives me something to look forward to. I can’t wait to get home!
