~The Week of Insanity happened. (a.k.a. the week before finals, which is almost always crazier than finals week itself)
~I read at the poetry/fiction reading my university hosts every semester. So nerve-wracking.
~I found out I'll be working the front desk of my dorm next fall!
~I turned in a final paper in Brit Lit, a photography portfolio, and a poetry portfolio.
~I had three finals.
~I packed like crazy.
~I had to say goodbye to some of the people I'm closest to.
~I went to Joseph-Beth twice in two days to make up for the lack of visits this semester and over the summer.
