Hey all, sorry for not being around for a couple of weeks. After the craziness that was Cal Day I had very little time to rest before starting the Start of the End of English class--paper-writing. For some reason I have finals in both of my English classes, plus final papers. Usually professors cancel final exams in lieu of papers but I guess I wasn't lucky...
This week I had two papers due: one on Thursday, one on Friday. By Friday I was extremely tired, so today I decided to take some time and enjoy the beautiful weather! I visited a friend at her house and then we both walked to People's Park where Hip Hop in the Park took place. There were some pretty cool things happening. There was a station where graffiti artists could draw on boards, a stage where some pretty well-known hip hop artists performed (Blue Scholars), and a breakin' place! M. and I sat and ogled at their tricks for a good while (by the way, those same breakers could be found in the halls of Dwinelle during weekdays; you should check them out)
I spent the rest of my afternoon on the grass, collecting sunshine and people-watching. This was actually the first day I've actually walked around People's Park--for those who have walked by it on any regular day, you know how it can be a little bit intimidating. But People's Park is beautiful, especially on the first of May.
One more essay to go, and then off to study for the rest of my exams. I'm a bit nervous; I'll admit. I have a few readings I need to review by next week (AND OF COURSE A PAPER AHH) but the material is pretty interesting so somehow I'll manage. Also, it's May, so everything is right in the world. (Can you tell I was born in May? I'll be 20 soon!)
The end to this school year is near! I won't be a sophomore anymore... oh goodness. When I think about finishing this year I get a little too nostalgic for my liking. I'll save some memories for next post. The future's looking good too--I got an internship with a Berkeley publishing house this summer and will stay in Berkeley for the second half, so expect some more entries about the great weather and Memorial Glade.
Now to get to some paper-writing. See you later!
