Christmas is coming--and so is the end of the semester. Things are starting to look up.
Dreading: Finals. They’re never as bad as I think they’ll be; the anxiety leading up to them is actually worse. This semester, though, I have a cumulative Chemistry final, so all bets are off.
Switching: Majors. In October I transferred into English Education (from Nursing), and I’m already feeling a lot happier and less stressed. My goal’s always been to study for a job where I can help people, and English Education combines that with the subjects I’m best at and love most. I’m a little sad about giving up Nursing, but not sad enough to plow through Organic Chemistry.
Reading: The Boston Jane series by Jennifer L. Holm (I’ve yet to read a book of hers that I don’t at least like); Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson, Issues 1-6 of The Dreamer by Lora Innes, The Trespasser by Tana French, Dune by Frank Herbert, and The Fall of the House of Walworth by Geoffrey O’Brien.
Scrounging: For Thanksgiving leftovers. At this point we might have a little bit of turkey left, but everything else--three-berry cranberry sauce, loaded mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, pumpkin pie--is long gone.
Raging: Over the election. Sort of. At this point I’m more depressed than angry...but also still angry. We’re in for a rough couple of years, and right now I’m praying there’ll only be four.
Thankful for: My family. Books. Writing. Netflix. College.
Watching: An ungodly amount of TV, especially during break, plus four horror/true crime documentaries. Each one was creepy in its own way, but my two favorites were Killer Legends and Cropsey. They’re both centered around urban legends, available on Netflix, and very, very good.
I have a chemistry final too this semester - and it's not looking pretty. I guess we'll suffer together!ReplyDelete
A couple of my favorite books from this month would be The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater and Behemoth by Scott Westerfield.

You too? Chemistry is one of those subjects that I can appreciate, but never quite get. Good luck!Delete
Can you believe we're already in December? I don't even understand. Also, "Missing: Sleep" could be the title of my autobiography right now. Can't wait for this semester to be over. Glad you switched your major to something you truly enjoy! :)ReplyDelete
I think English Education is going to work out a lot better for me. That being said, I'm so glad it's almost the end of the semester! I can't believe it's almost Christmas.Delete
*throws chocolate at you* YOU GOT THIS FINALS THING. I BELIEVE IN YOU.ReplyDelete
I'M PUMPED FOR CHRISTMAS. <3 Also it sounds like some exciting things are happening in your life!! I hope finals go well for you!! *gives you chocolate* ;)ReplyDelete
Thanks! The closer to the end of finals I get, the more Christmassy I feel. It's kind of impossible to get into the spirit of the holiday when you're studying for a Math final, but oh well. :)Delete
Eyyyyyyy English is cool! Good luck through your finals, and take care of yourself!ReplyDelete
I tried to escape it, but I couldn't. Honestly, though, I think English was a MUCH better choice--I already feel like a weight's been lifted off my shoulders. Good luck on your finals, too, if you haven't already taken them.Delete
Well done for taking the step to changing majors! I guess it helps to have a blog and a passion for writing? :) Chemistry is one of my subjects, too, though only a college one, and its far the most difficult. I find it strangely the most rewarding, though, if I do well! I'll be sad to dump it soon ...ReplyDelete
Chemistry is one of those subjects that I can appreciate but never quite enjoy or get. I do see how it can be rewarding, though. There's a lot that's interesting about it, and I wish that I liked it more than I do.Delete
Congrats! I am also an English Ed major and I love it. Also, Tana French is one of my favorite mystery writers.ReplyDelete
I LOVE Tana French. Her writing is always gorgeous, and you never can tell how each mystery is going to end.Delete
I'm starting a bunch of English and Lit classes after break, and I'm pretty excited. Also a little nervous. I don't think English Ed is going to be any easier than Nursing, but hopefully I'll enjoy it more.
