And...SCENE


To-Do List:

Macroeconomics final...Check.

Middle Eastern history final...Check.

Book-buy-back...Check (greatest part of the entire quarter, let me tell you. Conversation at the bookstore counter:
Clerk: "I can only give you $5.99 for this book."
Me: "Well, that's certainly more than I'll get if I burn it."
Clerk: "What?"
Me: "Nothing.")

First quarter at new school...DONE.

Can I get an amen? (And yes, I did JUST get done with finals. The only thing worse than an ungodly early final is an ungodly late final.)

Whilst waiting in the four-hour gap between finals today, I perused the shops surrounding my school and found a job lot of goodies that will very soon be associated with the words "contest," "100th post," and "prize." Stay tuned! I got some good stuffs :)

Congrats. My to do list is not looking nearly as good.

Lisa and Laura said...

Nice work Sara! Does this mean Spring Break 2009 has officially launched? If so, I'm so jealous. College spring break? Sigh...

L&L -- Unfortunately, my spring break will be half shopping, half wisdom-teeth-removal. So not entirely the party-it-up it should be :(

Tara Maya said...

Hey at least two finals are out of the way. Fhw!

Natalie said...

YAY! AMEN! HALLELUJAH! Man, love that book-buy-back conversation. Thanks for the laugh.

Can't wait for that 100th post...I like prizes.

Renee Collins said...

Ah, finishing finals is SUCH a great feeling. Congrats! Now, go bask and enjoy your break. (You do have a break, right?)

Kiersten said...

Wow--you finish EARLY! And congratulations! That post-final feeling is so, so wonderful.

And I, too, loved the bookstore conversation. That's exactly how I always felt--three dollars or I'll just chuck it in the trash!

sraasch said...

Yes, it is a fabulous feeling! And Renee -- I do have a break, thank God. Won't be doing anything too wild-and-crazy as a college student should, but I do have a break.

Kiersten -- I finished early because I'm on quarters. At first I was a little leery of the whole quarters thing (my old school was semesters). But now I love it. Instead of being stuck in a hateful class for 16 weeks, it's only 8. Fa-BU-lous.

Amen!

Hey lovely - there's a site online that buys back school texts (recent ones, unfortunately for me) and pay for shipping. I will try to find it. In the meantime - enjoy your break!

sraasch said...

Aerin -- Ooo there's a website for it too? That'd be great for the books that I couldn't sell back...
