Finals: The After Shot
I am officially done with my first semester of college! The last thing standing in my way was my Introduction to Sociology paper on the sociological story of Nelson Mandela. So how does it feel? It feels awesomely wonderful. Last week I had a pretty low key attitude towards finals. I essentially maintained that attitude throughout the past week. My thought process at the moment is as follows:
1) I’m done! I’m done! I’m done!
2) There is nothing pressing for me to do over break besides enjoy the holidays with my family
3) I feel relatively good about my finals. Thanks to Moodle I already know that I did well on two of them.
4) Home sweet home!
In reality my finals were not too horrible. I guess my professors aren’t evil after all. My chemistry final was challenging but fair. I would rank my biology final as moderate on a scale of easy to difficult. My sociology final was actually kind of fun. I really did not know a lot about Nelson Mandela before completing the assignment. After watching the documentary I can confidently say that I learned a lot. I have gained tremendous admiration and respect for Mandela. Unfortunately my calculus final was unexpectedly challenging. All I can say is that I tried my best.
On a happier note, I arrived home late last night. Apparently I just missed the real snowstorm at Clark. Enjoy some pictures of campus (or is it a winter wonderland?). Thanks to fellow blogger Dale for the great shots.
Now that I am home I’m finally starting to get into the Christmas spirit. I guess it is better late than never. While the days were approaching Christmas at Clark, it was just not the same being away from home. Now I can walk outside and see twinkling lights all around, elaborate Christmas trees in people’s front windows, and even inflatable snowmen. It truly is beginning to feel like Christmas. The only thing that is still missing is the Christmas cookies which I will surely find time to bake before the weekend is here. Until then I think my Christmas tree will have to suffice as the greatest symbol of Christmas in my home. Here’s my tree!
