thanks for good. It's nice to be home. I'm doing well. The semester wrapped up right before Thanksgiving, so we basically have to, like, three months to just kind of do whatever. So I'm definitely thankful that school is over. It's nice not having to log on to zoom what? And maybe like a normal semester, you would There would be, like a thing that kind of, like signifies, big done. But I think now everything is just so like the same. That is just like Okay, well, it's done, E. I don't feel like there is a big This is the end moment, like there would be an almost buster. When you hang out your friends to celebrate the end of the semester. It's kind of just like this thing. This is probably one of the most like, uh, the heaviest workload that I've had for a semester, and I feel like it's just because everything was kind of crammed together, just kind of get it through before break. You know, the last two weeks it was get through finals and finish everything that I needed to for school. But in hindsight, I'm really glad. Um, with my grades and how they turned out. And I'm also glad that we're ready to get everything done before Thanksgiving s. So now that we can just really enjoy the great and now this next month and a half is very focused on the M cat. Then after that, it's gonna be very focused on sort of my research project and, you know, getting through the end of the last semester. What are you looking forward to most in this two month rate? Um nos, um, clothe semester. Being over. It's definitely a big moment of early. Now I'm actually on a road trip out west, so I'm here with some friends and we're going thio Wyoming and Utah, Colorado, just basically all around that area. So it's in the hole. I used to kind of run away or get away. I guess after a long semester. So I've been going back and forth between chapel on hold. I'm getting tested. Obviously, basically, I sat down with my dad, made a study schedule for the next kind of month and a half. I basically just spend all of my time sitting in one room studying, so I really haven't like interacted to the outside world much e think we're really fortunate. At least I'm really fortunate to go to a school that did so well in terms of regulating it. I know a lot of us. We're really grateful that, you know, we were being tested so often, especially right before we came home. Um, and just like being with our families, it's obviously so scary that the cases they're going up so quickly next semester Who? I don't know. Like I been excited. I'm under loading. It'll be my last semester. Um, honestly, the next semester isn't looking good. I can imagine that it will be a lot like this semester. Um, and I think it's just gonna take time for us to kind of get back on track and kind of get things right. Um, so where they need to be a Sfar Safety, um, in the midst of the pain that e don't wanna put an expectation on the next message. So, like, I don't know. You don't get your hopes up for something, so I don't know, like, I'm excited either way for another semester. Just don't wanna, like, say for sure. Like what? I think it will look like e feel like graduation, of course, is so soon, but it feels so far away because I have so many things to accomplish between now and then. Happy Holiday.
