some academia etc.  
There's a week left of winter break and I don't want it to end yet. I've been spending it in a rather idyllic way. Spending time with the boy and with friends, reading, lazing around on the internet, listening to music... I definitely don't feel like being tossed back into school life.

But I shouldn't complain because next semester looks like one of my easiest. I discovered that I only need 38 more credits to graduate, which means four classes each remaining semester instead of the usual five (or, in the case of last fall's temporary insanity, six). Then I'll just have to pick up a couple more credits; maybe I'll do an independent study. I've never just taken four classes in a semester before and I'm looking forward to the lightened workload. Two of them are creative writing classes, which are so much fun that they hardly seem like classes.

Also I realized that, after this semester, I only need one more class to finish my English major. Whoa. I'll probably just keep taking English classes, but it will be nice not to have any required classes left. I'll be able to take a lot of creative writing classes instead of literary theory and all. I'm feeling a bit edgy about being a second-semester college junior, though. Next year I'll be a senior, then I'll have to think about scary stuff like what to do after college... about which I am clueless. But I am trying not to think about that now and just focus on enjoying the present.

Adskdks I feel so out of the loop with you. I'm sorry.
THAT'S SO EXCITING ABOUT GRADUATING. Even if being a Real Adult is freaky. I'm in denial.
And for some reason I've never taken a creative writing class, even though fiction writing was almost my major.
Btw, not to sound like a creep, but the pics of you and your bf on fbook are so cute! I'm so happy for you after that string of jerks.

ee no you're not out of the loop!
And, ahhh being a Real Adult is freaky, and I'm scared of graduating because I have no idea what it's like not to be a student! But there's also wanting to get out in the world and etc.
Creative writing classes are the best! You should take one if you can. I take way too many ^^
And yayyy! Thank you! You don't sound like a creep ^^ hehe. I'm happy too. <3
