Summer, is that you knocking at my door?

To most Bruins, 10th week is the last moments one has to kick back, relax, and reflect upon the wonders of the year in passing as a UCLA student before finals week hits. However, for some of us unlucky souls, it is but a reminder of the 9 weeks before. This past quarter I took three classes, and not to sound cliché, but I am one of those college students that loves college for more than just the social scene and fun adventures, but also loves it for the academia that it provides. I learned about human evolution and the transitions we made to adapt to our ever changing environments. I learned about body language and the perceptions our peers have about us. And finally, I learned how to right a dang good research paper about something I love, food. It was a pretty solid quarter.

However, what I can honestly say I didn’t love is that my wonderful and intelligent professors thought it would be a great idea to assign my finals, final projects, and research papers, to all be due 10th week. Noooooooo! I spent all week in a study cave indulging myself in coffee, paper cuts, and self loathing. Thursday was judgment day and as I turned in that last exam after having sat through 4 hours of back to back tests, I felt sweet bliss. I was done. DONE! It is summer time for me!!! Now it was my turn to kick back, relax, and reflect upon the wonder of the year in passing as a UCLA student, while the rest of the campus builds their study caves, says goodbye to society, and prepares for hibernation. One point: me.
