today was the last day of classes. the last day of winter classes, at that.
i have a love/hate relationship with this time of year.
1. the weather starts to get nicer, though it is inevitable that it will snow at some point during spring term.
2. the end of the always long winter semester is almost upon us, but before i can really enjoy it, i have to finish all my papers and get everything all graded.
being done with classes is great, but i'm not out of the woods yet.
all in all, though, this was a great semester. my students were fun and participated, and i think they really learned some things, which is always good. my classes were fun, for the most part. i'm really going to miss dr. talbot's hilarious eccentricities. i kinda wish he could be my best friend. i was in the best dinner group in the history of dinner groups, and the girls and i became besties through countless nights of "studying", movies, sleepovers, dinners, treat runs, brownies, and many, many deep discussions about life and love.
it is weird to think that, at this time last year, i was getting ready to graduate. i'm always surprised at how different things can be in the course of a year.
hooray for the end of another year--halfway through my master's program? what the?
and, disneyland here we come!
