currently I'm...

smiling at all of my brother's texts. Every day he texts to remind me of when I'm coming home.
reading lots and lots of research papers on the effects of classroom spatial arrangement on student learning.
listening to Christmas music. 'tis the season.
doing laundry. and all the other stuff that gets put on the back burner when you have tests, papers and projects.
hoping that I will actually be productive this Thanksgiving break. Essays need to be written.
smelling all my candles. "Winter" is fantastic (pine cone-y but still sweet at the same time).
anticipating the start of break, when I get to go home and see my family and the puppies again.
preparing for the two weeks after Thanksgiving that are more or less going to be pretty intense with work and final exams and papers.
wearing a big thick scarf.
baking egg nog cookies, cake and peppermint hot chocolate. Tomorrow I have the student kitchen reserved and I think I'm going to go a little crazy.
thinking about summer plans and how I need to start getting my act together as far as applications and preparation go.
watching Scandal on Netflix. I'm on the fourth episode of season 1. I love it so far.
wanting an ugly Christmas sweater.
inspired by all my classmates. We are sharing final paper research topics and they all sound so amazing.

Well, it's Wednesday and and the week is pretty much over as far as major classes and assignments go. It's been about four weeks since I've been home, and of course I've been away for much longer than that, but because Thanksgiving is so late this year these four weeks have kind of felt like a million years.

I'm at that point in the typical college-kid cycle where I "come up for air" and start attending to those things that were ignored while I was rushing nonstop to get papers and projects done. These things include laundry, picking up mail and actually eating a proper meal in a dining hall. It's been nice spending the evening with academics far from my mind.

Just a couple more days and I'll be home for Thanksgiving week. I'm ready to celebrate.
