finals week fanatic

Monday: statistics exam. lunch with Heather at Gurus. ok i'd never been to Guru's before but if you live in the Provo area I highly suggest it! it's just on Center Street in Provo, right by Los Hermanos. they try to keep everything pretty healthy with have gluten free and vegan options. i got the lime cilantro quesadilla with a house salad on the side (get the balsamic dressing!). it was delicious! but huge. next time i think i'll get a salad because the half salad (which is what Heather got) is still pretty big and cheaper. i really liked the atmosphere and the food. of course, the company was wonderful! I could talk to Heather for hours! sadly i had to get back to study physiology. that evening i worked at the good old Bean.
after lunch at Gurus
Tuesday: take physiology exam in the AM. that was a lot harder than i thought it would be! commence stressful studying for Genetics. take a break to eat a doughnut with Daniel and Andrew (aka Ron and Harry) in the JFSB courtyard. luncheon at the Bean followed by a 5 hour work shift. dinner at Adam and Sarah's. they tried a new recipe of crock pot teriyaki chicken that smelled delicious but tasted nastay! waaaay too much salt! but dinner was still fun.

Wednesday: studied for about 8 hours straight- Genetics. it was great. took the test at 2:30. it was crazy. all while i was taking the test i just kept thinking how grateful i was for the class and how amazing genetics was! i wasn't stressed and i wasn't worried about my final grade. i just enjoyed the work i was doing! i truly am grateful for the opportunity i had to learn about genetics this semester. i wasn't the smartest person in the class, but i definitely learned TONS. the test took me about 4 hours. phew. after the test i ran home and got cute... because all the freshman roommates were coming over for a little "good-bye" party! we ate food (chips and salsa mostly), played games (i played Blokus for the first time ever!) and talked. these girls are amazing. they are my "other family." i love them!
Thursday: I woke up early (normal) to take my D&C test. then i started packing up my room to go home! Daniel came over after his Russian final and we made smoothies and talked. he is hilarious. i'm so grateful for his friendship! i don't know what i'd do without him! after he left i packed a bit more and got most of my stuff packed up in my room. i went to lunch with Shalise at 12. we were both craving Olive Garden so that's where we went! I took a couple pictures but we looked pretty bad in them (mostly me) so i deleted them.  i worked all afternoon and then went and packed up the rest of my stuff. it was pretty unorganized because i didn't have any boxes so i just stacked everything up. it was also stressful because my roommate's stuff was all over the kitchen counters and table, which was my cleaning job. so i had to wait for her to get home and clean it off. when dad got there i threw all my stuff in the car, strapped spencer's bike on top, and then we went home! it was SO good to be home!!!

finals week was crazy! but i survived and even had some fun! now it is so great to be home for a little bit before i leave the country.
