Spring break is officially over and today marks seven weeks until the end of the semester. It's crazy how quickly time seems to be going by -- I still feel like all of my semester classes are fairly new, and I feel like I still have so many things to accomplish in the next seven weeks. It's definitely going to be a sprint to the finish, but it is all good things, so I'm happy about it.
I returned to campus this afternoon after almost two weeks off for spring break. I left campus early to fly out to Spain to see one of my dearest friends in the entire world. She and I spent a day in Madrid before flying to Barcelona to spend a few days. Barcelona was incredible -- having been fascinated by Gaudí for years, I was so excited to visit places like La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, and Parc Guell. After our time in Barcelona, we spent a few more days in Madrid. It was an incredible trip and I feel so lucky to have been able to go.
What's crazy is that although it's only been a few days since I've returned to the States, it seems like the trip was a long time ago, as my mind is already focused on so many things in the future. I have a few yoga classes to teach during the month of April, two Psych research projects to finish (and possibly one to present), two weekends of Highway 57 performances, exams, Easter break, yoga classes, Dance Marathon, a research project to complete for one of my classes, Food Council events, and so many other things! It's crazy to see that my weekends are literally booked from now until the end of the semester, but as I said before, it's all things that I love, so I'm happy to do them.
What's even crazier? One of my friends just pointed out that we're almost halfway done with college. How did THAT happen? I remember high school taking years and years to go by.. (I still feel really weird being able to say things like "when I was in high school" or to refer to my cross country injury which happened seven years ago -- I'm getting old!).
