So classes have officially ended, leaving us "dead week," or a week to study for finals. But the sun was out, and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful day before I really started hitting the books.
On Friday, I watched the Cal Bears take on Oregon State at a home baseball game, and while I was walking through campus, I passed by Sproul and also watched the California Golden Overtones (female a capella group) perform some of their lovely tunes.
Cal spirit is something that always surrounds me, and it's not something that only shows up every April on Cal Day. But besides that rah-rah spirit, there is also the ever-important academic side that comes with the package. With finals looming ahead in the near future, I realize that my freshman year has just flown by, a year in which I have been challenged intensely academic-wise, but also rewarded with a lot of fun, fresh experiences that come with being a student at Berkeley. I'm excited for the summer and for the chance to be living at my (real) home again, but when it comes time to move out, I know it will definitely be a bittersweet experience.
Until next time,
