Today marks the end of my first semester of graduate school!
My mind is somewhere between, “Oh God that was the longest semester of my life,” and, “Wow…is it really over that quickly?” Some days it felt like I’d been here for years, and other days it felt like I’d just moved in the week before. Crazy how that works, isn’t it?
But through all the projects and assignments and meetings and seminars, I somehow made it out alive and with sanity mostly still in tact (although at times that was arguable).
Anyway, I’m a bit too exhausted to do a full reflection post on the semester, and I’m saving up my energy for driving back to Pennsylvania on Wednesday (after a quick stop in Blacksburg tonight, of course). I’ll write more on it once I’m back home and have slept and snuggled with my kitty, who I’m told is waiting (im)patiently for me. Although I’m pretty sure all she’s excited about is just another set of hands to pet and scratch her.
To my dear readers who have left comments on my recent posts and I haven’t responded to them yet… I deeply apologize! Do know that I read your thoughts and I love hearing from all y’all. Final projects just got the better of my time lately. I’ll make it up to y’all soon, promise!
But for now, time to finish packing and cleaning, and make my way back to PA for the holidays. Safe travels to anyone else traveling this week!
