Whew - I survived finals!
I mean, of course I did. Maybe I should say, 'Whew! I can still pull a few almost-all-nighters in a row!' :) lol. I thought I wouldn't be able to, since film school ruined me, that way, but somehow...school is done for the semester!
I'm feeling more than a little windblown and a whole lotta sleepy. I had two intense days of final presentations in class and a three-hour English exam (after a week straight of work & finishing said projects), and then I was called into work last night...after which I slept for the longest I have in a long time! Aaah.
I have two or so more days of work to go and then I'm officially off the hook for a bit. :) It'll take me a bit to feel well-rested again, but I'm already psyched to have a break from homework. Today I leisurely strolled to the grocery store, got some treats, and a homemade soup is boiling on the stove. :) It's so nice to have a moment to cook.
I have barely had a second to think about Christmas (crazy, I know!), so I bought the cutest little 12 inch tree, which I hope to pot and surround with twinklelights so as to get in the mood. It's been freakishly sunny here in the past few days, so it hasn't felt like the season, for me, yet - it had me missing summer sun and camping. Oh, how I want to go camping and curl up by the fire!
I'm craving winter, finally, though - like a switch just flipped on, today. Craving sugar plums and gingerbread and spiced coffee and chai lattes. Sweet potatoes and all sorts of squash. Vanilla rum and apple cider. Marzipan and ginger and figs and dates! Mmm.
Here's to sleep & relazing & time spent curled up on the couch.
