Okay, I am perfectly aware of the fact that it’s cold, rainy and all in all very grey but think about it guys, there’s not much time left until we’re finally free. It’s an utterly unbelievable thought and it makes me do that girlish squeal in my head as just for a while I manage to forget that I have exams and instead I concentrate on the fact that I will have time… Time to just hang out. Time to go out. Time to waste and use productively alike. There’s a beautiful freedom in that.
Unless you can’t tell I’ve just finalized some of my summer plans hence the unbearable excitement. I’m am ensuring that this is the best summer yet, rain or shine I’m making the most of it. I have such a list of things to do which I will finally be able to get on top of; learning how to drive, reading a book or two a week, knitting myself a cardigan.. Just really simple things which I can’t do right now because every second I have is immediately drained over to either “Study” or at the very least “Think About How I Should Be Studying”.
I am not ready to sit the exams but I am not going to worry too much about that, I can say with ease that I’ve been working since September (and a bit last year obviously) so I’m going to hope that my efforts will be rewarded in point form, or at the very least I will pointed in the right direction and end up happy and all that jazz.
Anyone else out there started planning their summer and basked in the imaginary sunspot of their mind as they think about things like sunshine, picnics, leaving on a jet plane, sleeping in until 4pm or getting to bed at 6am. Fellow leaving-certers right now I am very very happy and I hope that if you find yourself in the “WAH WHEN WILL IT EVER END?” state of mind that you flick to your calender and look at all those long empty days. What recession? What swine flu? What wars? We are young. We are beautiful* and we will be free. (All sappiness is intended for corns sake I’m not that bad 😉 )
*Disclaimer you may not in fact be beautiful.
