Stepping closer to the end.

Freedom!  Well, sort of.

I took my final exam for my second class tonight.  Yay.  All the hard work is done.  Thank the Lord for curves because I somehow managed to get a B on a test that I BOMBED.  Apparently the rest of the class bombed it, too.  The good news is that I should get an A on this one because I studied a lot harder and feel way better about it.

I'm just glad it's done.  No more hard thinking.  I just get to enjoy my last few days in TFAS.

Last few days.  Wow.  That's still a little weird to write.  But it's true.  I have internship tomorrow, then the ICPES wrap-up session tomorrow night, then internship Thursday, and that's it.  Graduation is Friday, Mom and Mommom get here that afternoon, we have the graduation party Friday night, and then move-out Saturday.

Two months has never gone so quickly.

But the truth is I'm ready to go back to North Carolina.  I'm ready to go back to Campbell, back home.  It's no DC by any means, but it's still home.  I'm ready to get back to my friends and the family that I've created for myself there.  I'm ready to go back to Dr. Steegar's French classes.  I'm ready to listen to Dr. Thornton lecture on government.  I'm ready to go back to Dr. Mero's random tangent stories.  I'm ready to go watch Ryann play soccer with the school team.  I'm ready to get started for real with Louis and the College Democrats.

This summer was amazing, and I am totally aware of how blessed I am to get to be here, but I'm ready.  This is a good feeling.

Now ask me if I still feel this way next Tuesday.  I make no promises.


  1. I can't believe you're almost finished!

  2. Mal, it has been SO wonderful to get to see you enjoying yourself and learning so much this summer.
