Final Stretch

12.06.2012

The holidays are crazy. From Black Friday on, madness ensues as we shove live trees into our homes, lick our tongues dry ensuring each Christmas card is sealed tight, frantically battle fellow shoppers in the mall's parking garage, and turn our studies into temporary Santa's workshops.

And then there are those of us who are still students, who must postpone our complete holiday excitement until we successfully complete all of our dreaded finals. It's crunch time here at UT and the stress is tangible on the 40 acres. I'm certainly feeling the burden, but most of the weight will be lifted at 2pm tomorrow. At that point, my sanity and I will take a huge sigh of relief as over half of my classes are behind me.

In this first throwback Thursday of December, I am reminded of when times were simpler--when my writing assignment consisted of a brief piece on what the holidays meant to me rather than a 10-page research paper on Spanish history (my current work in progress). I hit most of the big points--fellowship, festivities, friends and last but not least, family. My workload may be heavier; my stress may be more prevalent; my word count may be exponentially greater, but the holidays will always mean these things to me and these are the things I look forward to in the coming weeks.
