Post-finals stress? by Laura N. '09

Oh, it happens. Trust me.

I was lucky enough this semester to have only one final exam, which I took this afternoon.

So, I should be relaxed right now, right?

Wrong.

I need to have everything I own packed and stored by 6 PM tomorrow. Also, I’m going to be in Madrid in 4 days and still don’t have an apartment.

So I’m still hosed, and only taking a small break to remind you that you only have one day to bid on Ben’s autographed business card. ;-)

We’re up to over ten bucks! How crazy is that?! Ben, I think you really are a rock star.

Remember, proceeds go to a good cause that I haven’t picked yet.

    Whatever you do, don’t go to Toledo. Seriously, Mitra and I went and it was the most boring day of tourism we could have ever possibly had. OMG you’re doing MISTI though.

    When Jessie worked in Switzerland one summer, she lived in a hostel until she could find an apartment. Good luck with your summer!

    Haha 14 bids wow!! I’m upset we don’t get to meet Ben (and if we do, it’ll be very very short). I am out of touch with the world, and didn’t know about Blogs on the site until I applied, and didn’t start reading them until about 2 months ago.

    I have found out, though, that you guys truly are great (all of you). Thank you for all the help you guys would have given me had I read the blogs ;P I know I’m weird…

    I hope I get a chance to do for future applicants what you guys do for us!! (Applying for a blogger position, I hope)
