the end of the semester....
I find it safe to say that I survived my first semester in a phd program. I may not be completely finished, but 4 days from now, I will be home for the holidays and ready to take 4 weeks off until the spring semester begins.
I have to admit that I have never lived anywhere that has received snow in the amounts that Albuquerque does...and it doesn't snow here that much. I had to drive to campus for 10 minutes in order to turn in a final paper, and I encountered this.
I never had to scrape ice off of a car before. I don't have an ice scraper. I had to call my mom for advice and she said that a kitchen spatula has multiple uses...she wasn't kidding!
I realized that snowflakes really are star shaped!
I was able to take a small break from my end-of-the-semester work to put up my christmas tree.
I hope the rest of this coming week goes by without a hitch.
