HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HAL-LAY-LU-JAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's over! It's finally FINALLY over. All my exams are done!
Yay! I get my life back! Double yay! Oh god, this feels good. After an entire month of working around the clock (no sleep + no food=no sanity), it's done. Four finals done. Four more credits earned (12/16 done! YAY!!). And, the best part is, IT'S SUMMER!!!!
You will probably agree with me that summer is awesome.
First of all, there's the lack of things: lack of homework (YAYYYYYYYYY), lack of school, lack of annoying classmates, lack of winter coats (yes, we do get sun in Canada!), lack of responsibilities all around.
Then there's all the fun new additions: SUN, swimming, Canada Day (American translation: Fourth of July), visiting family, traveling, relax
ing, reading at the beach. All good things. Very good things.
What are my summer plans, you may ask? Well, let's take a visual tour.
First I will be going here:
Yes, the classic amusement park visit. Prerequisite of any summer experience. Of course, I am deathly afraid of rollercoasters, so I'll just being going on the swings and the teacups and the water rides. But still, tons of fun will be had. Very, very excited.
Then, I will be going here with my mom to visit her side of the family,
I get to see all my cousins and aunts and my grandma. All very fun. A little nerve racking, with my plethora of social phobias, but fun nonetheless. I love my family.
Next, I get to go here: (I AM SO EXCITED!!)
Epic, I know. It's not only another country. It's not only another continent. It's half way around the world!!! SOOOOOOOOO exciting. I CANNOT WAIT!!! Also, while I'm there I also get to go to New Zealand, Tazmania, and maybe New Guinea! So many countries! (And so many stickers for my suitcase!).
So yes, I am looking forward to an awesome summer. Of course, I can never escape school completely. There's the typical summer reading (6 books worth!), and a world lit essay and a big freaking extended essay. All in all, 4000 pages of reading, and 6000 words of writing. Definitely NOT looking forward to that...
But, to make up for it, there's some great books/tv shows to look forward to. As previously mentioned, one my absolute favourite tv shows, Make It or Break It, comes back on June 28th (Emily and Damon all the way!!). But that's just the beginning. The Emmy nominations are announced in the beginning of July (if Jim Parsons isn't nominated, I will kill someone). Work of Art and Project Runway, my two favourite reality tv shows, are both airing. The Emmy awards are announced (if Jim Parsons doesn't win, I will kill someone else). And all these books to are released: Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner, The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June by Robin Benway, You Wish by Mandy Hubbard, The DUFF by Kody Keplinger.
Yes, summer is great (even if summer homework kind of sucks). But for right now, I'm just so happy exams are over. Cue the hallelujah choruses once again.
