Final Countdown of Sophomore Year

Yesterday was the one-week mark until the end of classes.
Stress is high and so are feelings of exhaustion, eagerness and sadness as this semester comes to an end.

I am exhausted. I had a busy and fun weekend (click HERE to see my Saturday night) but it tired me out. I require a lot of sleep and I was only able to get a lot of it by sleeping in until 2pm on Sunday… 
I haven’t slept that late since high school.

I am also mentally stressed out and exhausted. 
Although it is the last week of classes before finals, I still have a lot of assignments due and I had a test yesterday, which didn’t count as my final.
I can’t even think about finals with all the work that I still have to do this semester.

Adding to the stress of school work, I have formal tomorrow, Friday the 27th.
I am so excited, which is part of the reason I can’t sleep, but it is also a lot of pressure, to make sure everything is confirmed, and everything is ready for Kappa Delta’s White Rose Formal. 
I have been working extremely hard and (losing sleep over it) so I hope it is the best formal ever!

I am stressed because I don’t officially have a job yet for the summer... 
But I am trying not to stress because I know it will all work out.

I am eager to go home and see my family!
I miss my grandparents, my siblings, my nieces, my nephews, my parents and of course my friends. I am eager for summer, sleep and relaxation.

But then I am sad.
On May 11th, I will leave Wake for seven months and then will return in January as a second semester junior.
That is crazy, and I haven’t really wrapped my head around it. 
I am sad to be leaving my dream school for a very extended period of time.
Don’t get me wrong, I am so excited and also nervous for Dijon (click HERE to read about my study abroad plans) but I am also really sad that I will be away from my home away from home, Wake, for a long time.
I am sad that the seniors, some who I am very close to, are graduating. 
And I am sad that my second year at Wake is coming to a close.

Another sad part of this week has been that a freshman Alpha Delta Pi, Maggie, passed away early Saturday morning.
Her passing was of natural causes.
I did not know her, but I have been told she was a sunshine on campus.
Her passing has deeply saddened the Wake Forest community.

So, lots of sadness but also lots of happiness!
There is formal, graduation for the seniors, summer, friends and abroad all coming up very quickly!!
