Good evening, dear readers!
First of all, Happy Friday!
It’s been almost two weeks since I last blogged. Don’t fret–I haven’t given up on blogging, I just am immensely busy with schoolwork, like papers and daily homework.
These last four weeks are crucial for me. It’s crunch time. What helps is the quiet fourth floor of the library, upbeat pop music, Spotify, and occasionally visiting with friends. Last night, I decided to stay after my poetry club. My friends and I shared music, our opinions on contemporary art, and how our classes are going. We even wrote silly, nonsensical things on the whiteboard. (I tried to take a picture, but my phone is currently full.)
We saw some of the campus rabbits while my friends and I stood outside the junction between the science building and the library. I especially like how rabbits noses twitch. Because these bunnies live on campus, they are fairly tame. Still, it’s not like you can expect to approach them. As I headed back in the direction of the dorms, three or four of those guys scattered, clearly startled by my sudden movements.
Each week seems like it’s moving so quickly, while at the same time moving slowly. It’s difficult to explain. I mean, there’s only three more weeks left of April. And yet, it’s not even 10 p.m. here in my comfy dorm room. Time is strange.
If the Doctor were real, I would ask him to freeze time for me so that I could get all of my stuff done. It’d be theoretically nice to step outside of the TARDIS and realize that only five minutes have passed on Earth.
But because this (sadly) can’t actually happen, I have to rely on advice from Tolkien: “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
Also, Winston Churchill reminds me of the importance of having a positive outlook: “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
Wishing all students perseverance in the coming weeks,
