This is what accumulated over finals.  I take two things from this picture.  One, I have moments of obscene laziness.  Two, I drank so much tea/hot chocolate/mocha during finals. Needed to stay awake somehow!  Rest assured they are now all in the dish washer.

The Quiet

School is finally done.  Finals are a thing of the past.  Everything school related has been taken out of my room, car, and purse, and been neatly organized in my closet.  Mean teachers have been forgiven...kinda.  And I am finally at peace.  Last week was hard.  I managed to get through with only one major meltdown, which is amazing considering the kind of semester I had.  I had one completely awful final, a couple OK ones, and one weird one, just down right weird.  But I have spent little time thinking about school for the past few days.  I've been enjoying total relaxation with great people.  

I am currently in a dark room with lit candles snuggled up in bed with a mocha and a truffle next to me and an interesting book waiting to be read.  But for now I am enjoying the quiet to think.  

This has been such an amazing year so far.  I have been blessed more than I can even explain and it's so great to be quiet and take the time to remember.  This semester has been evolutionary in my life.  I can't put into words how much my world has changed and I'm excited to see what lies ahead.  School's only been out for a couple of days but I already miss the community and the friendships.  January can't come soon enough!

But enough of my ramblings.  It's bed time.  Gotta wake up tomorrow and drive my best friend to the airport.
