So, I’m safe and sound at home, as of Sunday afternoon. Whew! It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Wrapping up the last classes, cleaning the apartment, and seeing the other girls off… I can’t believe that that’s it for another year! [And next year’s my last… I don’t feel like I’ve been at Calvin long enough to be a senior!]

and we’re winding down
You’re going to get tired of my “we’re almost there” entries… but there’s just a lot of tying things off right now. Blowing off steam. Relaxing too much. Cleaning apartments. Farewell lunches and dinners and coffee trips. Oh, yeah, and final exams, which are supposed to be the major focus. I nearly forget about them, although my roommates don’t have that luxury of forgetting… I, however, have a light load this week. Lucky me!

last day of class!
“Bittersweet” is an overused word, especially at this time of year. Everyone’s saying it. Or thinking it. Including me, I have to confess, despite my reluctance to fall in… But it’s true.
Today was the last day of classes, for spring semester and therefore (if you’re not sticking around for the summer), the entire year. Sweet. And some of the best people in the world are graduating or leaving… Bitter. So even I am lapsing into clichés… Rats.

senior design night
This past Saturday, I joined a few friends over in the Science Building for the Engineering department’s senior design night. My pals (Sarah and Laura—you remember them) and I were supporting two friends that lived on our dorm floor two years ago. Anyway, I missed out on most of the festivities (earlier they had an open house, followed by a dinner), but I was able to hear each of them present their projects. They were mercifully clear about their processes and the finished designs. I learned so much!

Photo Album: Last Few Days…
I’ve been horribly remiss in showing you what’s been going on… So sorry.
Anyway… here I am deliriously happy to take a break from writing three essays—off to Honors Convocation…

So you’ve probably heard about the huge Petra exhibit that Calvin is hosting. Petra is everywhere… “Taste Petra,” “See Petra,” “Dig Petra,” “Dance Petra”... well, I’m lucky enough to be able to “Write Petra.”
This past Friday, my poetry writing class met by the box office of the Petra exhibit. The English department covered the ticket prices, I think, and we were able to go through the exhibit during class. (Though my friend Sarah and I agreed: fifty minutes isn’t nearly long enough.)
