So close I can almost taste it…

by Janie Jones

The semester is almost over.  The number of assignments left to be completed is down to single digits.  I have 4 more days of “real class” then finals.

Unfortunately, those 4 days are spread over two weeks and finals is the week after.  It sure makes 4 days seem like an eternity.

Still, I’ve made it this far.  I’m almost there.  I can see summer on the horizon.  I can feel the warm sun, smell the fresh air, taste the homegrown tomatoes.  I can feel the peace and quiet and the lack of deadlines slipping away.

But for now, I have to prepare my oral presentation for Spanish class.  And, complete my the Spanish grammar homework.  Then, if I get it all done I can treat myself by reading about dark energy.  What a strange world when reading about dark energy is a reward for more mundane homework accomplished.

Happy Saturday.
