After an incredibly stressful two weeks I am home! Dead week and finals were much more intense this year, and I am so glad they are over.
I had to write four essays, two were 10 pages long and two were six pages. I also had a Personal Finance Exam. The essays as a whole weren't bad, but I really struggled with one in particular. My roommate and I affectionately called it "the essay from hell." I turned it in on Tuesday, and am trying not to think about it until grades come back.

I am spending my first day home getting in the Christmas spirit. I baked sugar cookies and gingerbread, and wrapped Christmas presents. I swear my dog gave me a sarcastic look when I turned on the Christmas music.
I can't believe there are 18 days left before I head to Manchester! Now I need to start preparing in earnest.
