Finals Week

So...since I have been studying and taking tests and knitting in order to procrastinate...I haven't really blogged for a long time.

It is snowing right now. Really actually snowing. Earlier this year it did this little light fluffy thing that melted in 3 hours but now we are up to around 4 inches and it is still going out there. I don't understand why it hasn't snowed all semester and yet the week when everyone is trying to fly home (and we live in a place where you have to drive a really long time to get to any airport)? It's been going since 6 this morning and 12 hours later it doesn't show signs of stopping and while I don't have any corn for popping I do have EasyMac, oatmeal and cookies so I think I am ok.

I am almost done with my finals, just one more tomorrow. Is it odd that they weren't nearly as bad as everyone made them out to be? They are just a bunch of tests? Maybe it's because I'm an english major and just have to turn in papers instead of do finals.

As mentioned I have been knitting. One of my friends just had a baby so I made her a blaket, and since I am really broke I have decided to make Christmas presents this year so I have been spending a lot of time with needles in hand making a variety of things. The pictures will be posted at a later date. Probably next week because guess what....

Miles to go before I sleep

 How on earth does the body know to get sick at the exact worste time? Finals are in two weeks and final papers are less than a week from being due. Why does my nose choose now to feel stuffy and my throat to feel raw? Do they not realize that I have a parade that I must be in tonight? That is the cold and humid night-time weather and that I have to sing!

I have been hauling around a box of tissues, wanting to go to bed and sniffling all day. I am not the only one, stress induced colds seem to be sweeping across the campus. I thought I would be safe this time around because...well I realized that my grades are in a good place and I will pass all of my classes even if I fail all my finals so no stress for me!

Yet sadly that is not to be. Tonight, I will be walking in a parade, then running back to my room, turning up the heat drinking lots and lots of herbal tea then going to bed.

Unfortunately, I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.
