today, i am extremely thankful that the semester is OVER! i took my art history final on tuesday (on which i scored a 97.5, thankyouverymuch, giving me a final grade of 95.7–in case you didn’t know, THAT’S AN “A”. hee.), and i turned in my last two english lit papers last night, one of which counted as the final. i did turn them in about half an hour late, but hopefully he won’t take off any points… we shall see. now i have exactly one month of freedom til summer semester starts! of course, i have some qualms about that, b/c my astronomy class is going to be from 10:30am til 5:30pm on mondays, and 10:30am til 1pm on wednesdays. mondays are going to be rough. but for now, let’s concentrate on the positive: i have a whole month of doing whatever i want ahead of me! whooooooooooooo!
yesterday while browsing my flickr account, i got the idea to do a picture post, but i was extremely busy writing my papers all day. so i’m going to add it here. 🙂 and so without further adieu….
