the calm before the storm
Today was awesome because after, what, seven years? -- I have finally completed my collection of Harry Potter books. For some reason I never bought the third one before but now I can say I have rectified that situation. I also got The Great Gatsby and a Sylvia Plath poetry collection among other things so life is good.
I love Sundays, but they're like the calm before the storm. I get to relax, but I can never feel 100% at ease because I'm always aware that tomorrow I'll be back in school and doing homework and generally feeling stressed. It's doubly like that right now because with only a month left of school, everything is going to get harder before it gets easier. I'm bracing myself for an onslaught of projects and studying for finals and I'm not really excited about that at all. I'm not even really excited for summer, honestly, because that means another year will have gone by too quickly and I don't have that many plans yet. I just want to live in this moment, reading and eating dinner with my family and taking a well-deserved nap, and not worry about everything else.
On a lighter note, you guys need to stop me before I get addicted to any more TV shows. It's getting embarrassing. If I ever mention wanting to start watching another one, just leave me vaguely threatening comments. And don't forget to mention it was my idea, or I might get offended. Anyway, I'm off to watch The Office.
