Today marks the end of my semester. Having just finished my last final, I'm confronted with the perennial question of grad students everywhere, "What do people actually do with their lives?" When one goes from spending a solid week getting an average of 3 hours of sleep nightly and eagerly awaiting that fateful day when all is finished, you can't help but feel a little let down by the anticlimatic nature of it all. By all reason I should be asleep right now, but that cursed andrenaline has me more wired than Princess Di's telephone.
So I try to think of "normal" things people do when they're not working. Anyone in the real world, I could use some insight here. I could watch TV I guess, or clean, or eat, or blog, or read (mmm, yeah right!), or bother my other roomates while they study for exams still pending (therein lies the double edged sword of finishing exams early: nobody to play with but TONS of people to annoy!). But the bummer of it all is that whatever I do for the next couple days, it'll be all by my lonesome!! [Cue tears of sympathy] Tomorrow will be the true test: I have no classes, no studying, no work, the first time in MONTHS I have absolutely NOTHING to do! The world's mine oyster (prize to anyone who can give me the origin of that quote without googling it). So I need some plans, ANY IDEAS????
