Despite the snow, my last April on the Hill has started quite swimmingly. Yesterday, Margaret, Carrie, and I went to Culpepper’s (which is the best bakery and it’s only a five minute walk from campus) for tea (the three of us kind of got used to meeting for tea last year in Oxford, so we’re trying to keep that tradition alive).
Okay, so I had coffee. But the red velvet cupcake was delicious!
The conversation that the three of us had was great – although all three of us are busy and we’re all wondering about what the next year has in store for us, there wasn’t any sense of urgency. We all know that we’re graduating soon, but instead of worrying about it, we’re just trying to enjoy the last 54 days that we have with each other. It’s actually a really nice feeling.
Then I went to trivia at the Pub on campus at night. Bill and I were on a team with Buck, Tyk, and Joe (who are some of Bill’s friends). During the night, Bill, Tyk, Buck and I talked about what our plans are for next year. And the same thing happened – everyone was really relaxed about it. It’s kind of funny to see the transition from the hectic mess that was first semester for most of us (when you’re trying to figure out your life and still take four classes, it can get to be a bit much!) to the calm and collected feeling that most of us have this semester. Oh, and we ended up winning trivia. 🙂
Of course, what might be fueling this feeling of contentment is that my thesis is almost finished. That might have something to do with it just ever so slightly…
Oh, and speaking of April Fools’ Day – although we might not have enjoyed Mother Nature’s prank on us, everyone at HC did enjoy MBTA’s prank.
Yes, they changed the “BC” line to the Holy Cross line. I’m proud, MBTA! Good work!
