I have now finished one third of my library science degree.
It was a good semester, even though I think all of us at one point or another had a little breakdown and more than a few sleepless nights. Which was weird, because I do not ever remember a night before when i did not sleep at all, even a little bit, but I had a few this semester.
Even weirder is that I didn't really think I was stressed out most of the time, but my body did.
I definitely have more grey hairs.
But I think I learned a lot, and I could definitely put my knowledge to good use right now if I wanted to. I also had some really good profs, and i felt really lucky in that respect.
I am also very excited about the summer semester. I did not get in to all the classes that I wanted to, but I am 4th on the waiting list for the class that I really wanted, so I just have to attend the class for the first few weeks and hope someone drops it, or the prof decides to let me take the class anyway.
My weekend this summer starts on thursday at noon, and goes till monday at 6pm. I am only going to take 4 courses instead of 5, so I will hopefully not be nearly as stressed out as i was this semester. also, one of the courses ends in the middle of july, so that should make the end of term a bit easier to handle.
I also made a lot of really good friends this year, and we cemented that friendship with numerous pub lunches to calm each other down over the last few weeks of the term, so that, and knowing what is expected of us now will make this semester coming up a whole lot easier!
I am excited!
