One final left. (I saved the hardest for last. Wise, I know.)
This day last year was the day before I left for Jerusalem. What a night (it was one of the worst days of my life). Take two finals, rush home, pack my stuff, do my cleaning check**, check out of the apartment, pack what I needed for four months in the Middle East. I ended up not sleeping that night. And I missed my flight the next morning.
Thankfully, Dec. 17, 2009 has been MUCH calmer, for which I am extremely grateful.
**correction: I realized after I wrote this post that my heaven-sent roommate K-bob did my cleaning check that day. I didn't clean a square inch of the apartment. Kristen Zimmerman (now Skidmore) did it all. And during finals too. May she be blessed forever.
