Sometimes You Just Need To Chill

So I haven’t blogged in a while because I’ve had Final written exams, a Cantonese oral exam, Final Presentations, and four Final papers to write these past two weeks. I cannot tell you how relieved I am that all that is OVER! *Pops bottle of…water.* I was super stressed all week, and although I’m great at hiding my worries and fears, I had a minor breakdown at the beginning of the week. Nothing serious, and I was able to calm myself down by doing what I always do. Breathing. And continually saying to myself, “It’ll be fine, you’ll ace these exams and get these papers done before their deadline.” I did not sleep for over 4 hours each night this past week, so it’s a wonder how I’m functioning still. 

Anywho, by Thursday morning I was done with my presentations and written/oral exams and I had to complete two rather lengthy papers. My study abroad group had been planning a yacht trip for Friday and I had earlier expressed my interest in attending. I had over seven thousand words worth of papers to write, but I also just wanted to relax. I decided I would make my decision by the end of the night. I was somehow able to complete the paper I had started earlier in the week at the end of the day, but still had 4000 words of another paper to start working on…

I went for the boat trip.

Great sunset.

It turned out to be a beautiful day with great weather, and an excellent decision. I didn’t swim, or do any of the banana boating or wakeboarding activities that everyone else did. I just sat on the boat, danced, ate, drank, slept, and CHILLED. Best decision.

As for my paper that’s due in like five hours, I woke up at 2am on Saturday and somehow got it done before 5pm. God is great, I tell you.
