The trip around Europe with Ben was a success, but tiring. I may have forgotten include any rest days in our itinerary…whoops. I definitely learned my lesson and will build in a few relaxing days on my next trip. I’ll update soon with stories of our adventures, but until then, here are a few photos from the trip. 🙂
Ben flew home Thursday and I have spent the last few days relaxing, ignoring my growing to do list and enjoying the last few days of vacation before classes start back up. This time tomorrow, I’ll be busy with classes and thesis work. Tomorrow I start my first of 4 “elective” classes. They are exactly the same as the “major” classes I took earlier in the semester, just a little bit shorter (lasting 2 weeks each instead of 3 weeks). I will be taking one class at a time and usually have 6 hour blocks of class a few days a week. These long days, combined with the inconsistent French class schedule, and the fact that one of my classes only meets for a week means that I don’t have many days of classes left before graduation. 23 days of class to be exact. Where did time go?!?!
But, fear not. I will still be very busy, despite having a lighter class schedule–my senior thesis needs to be written. And I have made the ambitious, but necessary, goal of having a draft of my thesis done by Easter weekend…which is only 34 days away. So, I’m off to enjoy my last day of vacation before classes and thesis work resume tomorrow.
