Finals are kicking my butt.

I'm sorry I've been a little slower on the blogging lately. For the past week, I have been in finals mode. I feel like I have been working non-stop on papers and projects and gaining no headway. There have been way too many days lately where I look back and I know that I was working on homework all day, but wait-- it's midnight and what have I actually gotten done again? Ugh. The worst.

On top of all of this, I am also in the midst of applying for summer internships and working out the potential of maybe studying abroad in the fall. Both very exciting things that are morphing into overwhelming things and then into scary things. I need to keep reminding myself that they are, in fact, exciting things.

Today marks the 7 day countdown until all of this is over.

Next Wednesday, I will be flying HOME to California for a whopping ten days!!!! I honestly cannot wait. Bonus: I'm bringing a few aliens with me! Spencer, Frances and Claire are all coming too and I can't wait to show them around Newport and all of the awesome things (read: food) that I have been talking about for the past two years.

I just allowed myself a nap for the first time in weeks (record length sabbatical) and when I woke up, two hours had passed! What? Yikes. Maybe I needed it? Now, I'm trying to wipe off the sleepy and get my study back on. Proving to be challenging. I have refreshed my Facebook page way too many times in the last 30 minutes. An embarrassing amount. 

I'm going to give you guys a list of what I need to get done. It won't seem like a lot. And it won't make any sense to you, but I need to type it out. Bear with me.

Deconstruction Project
Designer File
Finish Dreamweaver
Personal Essay
Revise Memoir
CSM Application
CSM Statement of Intent
Other four things I'm forgetting
