There is calm in the air. The exact calm felt before a storm. Finals week on a college campus is ripe with angst and stress. I try my best to avoid such extremes in feelings but sometimes it's unavoidable when you help run a floor full of freshman. So I created a game plan for studying this week and its a really simple formula; coffee shop + lattes + studying with frequent blog and IG breaks + folk music (headphones are key) + knitting while reading. I've been testing it out all weekend and it's been pretty effective in blocking out stress and distractions. Now all I need is a butt cushion.... Seriously, it's numb.
I received a very generous gift from Solanah of Vixen Vintage. She asked my for my address last week and a pretty package arrived on my doorstep last night. I'm so overwhelmed by her generosity and kindness. I've been eyeing this gigantic Forestbound tote forever and it has been so helpful in the last day for toting around my textbooks and laptop from one study spot to another. Thank you again Solanah for making my finals week a bit brighter.
