Light at the End of the Tunnel

There are officially less than two weeks until the semester ends (for me) and I get to go home!

I’ve been having a series of “lasts”—last labs, last lectures, last discussions—and even though some of these have been the bane of my existence this semester, I’m oddly nostalgic as I look back on who I was before the semester had started and how far I’ve come.
