DONE. DONE DONE DONE. 15 typed pages of writing for two exams today, but I’m DONE.

Ended up with 4 1/2 hours of sleep, got up at 6:15AM, left for school an hour later, an hour after that, parked my car and made my way to Exam #1. Done by 10AM (surprisingly), off to sleep in my car (I know, I know) until 1PM, grabbed lunch, and went to my LAST final. It was actually rather sad, I was sitting in my American art final, it’s 3:30 PM, I’ve been at it an hour and I just want to be done. Still had an essay to write, I’m tired, I’m annoyed, and the only thing I want to do is sleep, but no. No, still have to write that stupid essay section. UGH. But it’s done, it’s all behind me. I am officially done with the last autumn quarter of my undergraduate career. VICTORY

Oh, that picture? Those are the 357 flashcards from my finals this quarter. Yep, just one quarter – just one set of exams. uh huh.

Monday, Monday

Ahhh. First day of Finals Week. Why do I sound so relaxed, you ask? Because finals week means no classes, no driving to campus, no fighting traffic, none of that silliness. Well, almost. I was on campus today anyway to drop off my ad hoc form for Landscape Architecture, my independent study form (to get 2 extra credits for LARCH598), my Rome contract (!!!) and took the BFs transcripts to the admissions office. Both of my exams are on Thursday, but my main concern right now is helping the BF finish his transfer application to UW which is due tomorrow night. Whew.

In other news, made chicken Saltimbocca tonight- totally delicious! Probably the least kosher meal ever: chicken, two kinds of cheese, and prosciutto. Delicious delicious traif.

So today I would have taken the GREs… except I was in physical therapy (still three times a week) because I can’t sit for more than 45 minutes at a time. I’m kind (extremely) relieved, but I also know that I can’t put them off forever, unfortunately.

As you might have guessed, autumn is in full swing around here — and the sugar maple just off the back patio is practically naked at this point, and the patio – nearly invisible. I love it.

Fall Away

Tried to go for a walk around Pioneer Park today… didn’t go especially well, only made it 1/4 mile or so before my hips started hurting and my back became stiff. Ah well, it was a glorious, crisp autumn day and, despite my pathetic hobble, managed to get a few good shots in… how long until Thanksgiving?

Remember, Remember the 5th of November

Today started off by sleeping in, woke up and ran around taking pictures, made lunch, edited the photos, finally left for school in the pouring rain, parked on the street because I was meeting a friend for a late lunch, scuttled off to class and developed a MASSIVE craving for Indian food (we talked about the Islamic paradise garden for an hour and a half), dropped Alanagh off at the E1 commuter parking lot because it was raining so hard and made my way home.

But wait! There’s more! In the process of getting onto I-5 South at NE 45th, the car behind me slammed into me, so I slammed into the car in front of me, and that car hit another car. It was ridiculous. Naturally, the most severe damage was to MY car, but everyone was fine, we filed a report and State Patrol came out and took care of it. But it was dark and wet and stuck next to the freeway for an hour. UGH. Not how I wanted to spend my night! On top of everything else, my Rome application is due tomorrow at 5 PM and I need to write some four ridiculous essays. UGH.

Monday, monday

Today was kind of crazy stressful: up at 6 AM, work from 7-11:30, class across town from 12:30-4:30 PM, stops at both the library and the office to pick up my notes, finally home by 6 PM, a short nap, dinner, then Castle and off to bed – UGH. It’s days like today that make me want to hate my life.

On a side note, it was another gorgeous Autumn day… I love Seattle.
