My brother’s roommate, Hunter, really put things in perspective for me today.
Hunter: Grin’s at 5?
Me: Gotta go to the lib…
Hunter: Tomorrow is dead day, that’s a horrible excuse.
Me: I have a ton to do!
Hunter: Fine. I’ll find someone else to have ONE margarita with to celebrate the end of classes. Sorry for asking and wasting your time.
Me: YOU’RE RIGHT THOUGH!!! THIS IS MY LAST DAY OF CLASS EVER!!!
Hunter: EXACTLY! And you want to waste it. I’m so hurt.
Me: Let’s go out tonight to celebrate instead.
Hunter: I’ll be writing my paper tonight.
Me: Go to the library with me after class, and then we can go out!
Hunter: That is a really good idea…
As you can tell, in college I have learned to prioritize. Work hard, then play hard. Thank you, Texas State!
In celebration of my last official day of class, I am going to write my final paper, research some things for my editing class in the library, and then go out for margaritas. On a Monday. With my brother’s roommate. And my Russian.
