A Little Piece of Freedom

The last two weeks have been absolutely crazy. I’ve never done so much studying for school in my life! Finals week is hell for anyone, and taking six honors classes has definitely taken its toll on me. I feel tired, literally exhausted even though I took a four hour nap after I got home from school, but I’m happy. I managed 100% on both my Calculus final and on my research paper for my Writing Workshop class. I’m waiting still on one class, but I’m positive I’ve got straight A’s this semester–finishing my second to last semester of high school with about a 4.8 GPA! :)

Today was my last day of school and I’m just so relieved. I’m so sick and tired of school; I really don’t think I could’ve lasted another day. I only get a week and a half off, but I’m so thankful for this break. I’m just so mentally exhausted. Both from school work, from not having time to myself or for friends/family, from all the stupid idiots that seem to surround me at my school. I’m just so happy to be off.

My mom had her shoulder surgery today. My dad took her around noon to the hospital and I’m not sure what time they got back home. I had a bit of a date night with Andrew to celebrate the end of first semester and we went to Applebee’s and then to see Sherlock Holmes (which was amazing, btw). My dad texted me during dinner saying that the surgery went well which I was relieved for.

My grandpa called shortly after because he hadn’t heard anything and had been trying to call the house but no one was answering (since my brothers apparently don’t know how to answer a phone). He was really worried about her–he won’t admit it, but my mom is definitely his favorite.

She’s doing alright, I guess. She’s feeling extremely nauseous at the moment and can’t really do much but just sit in our lazy chair in the living room. Me and my sister and dad have been trying to just make idle conversation and just make her as comfortable as possible. I don’t think she’s in a lot of pain, I think she just feels sick. I wish there was something that we could do to make her feel a little better. :/

  1. Congratulations on your amazing grades! I guess hard work really does pay off :)

    I hope your mum makes a full, healthy recovery, and Merry Christmas!

  2. Congratulations on finishing your exams and on pulling off such good scores! Exams pretty much exhausted me as well, although honestly probably not as much as you because mine were far more spread out and I only take four classes per semester at uni. Have you gotten your score for that last class yet? I hope you really did get straight A’s! I got two A’s and two B+’s this semester (I got all A’s in high school, but college is sooo different) and I actually couldn’t be happier about it. :)

    I’m so glad to hear your mom’s surgery went well. It’s pretty funny that your grandpa kept calling… and basically adorable that he was so worried about her. I hope she appreciates him! xD

    Hopefully with a little (read: a lot of) relaxation, your mom will start to feel like her normal self again, maybe even in time for the holidays (do you celebrate Christmas? I can’t remember). :3

  3. When I left the store I noticed a store a little farther along that had the same kind of candle but you could get like two for the same price. :P Oh, well, my mom says this one can burn a while without using too much of the candle up, so I guess the quality made it worthwhile. ^^

    Congratulations on the grades on the tests! I hope your mom gets better soon. It sounds like you both need some rest. And I hope you all had a good Christmas! :D

  4. Ah…Finals week is probably one of the main reasons that I am procrastinating about going back to University…well, and Financial Aid. *shudders* I hope that your Mom gets to feeling better real quick, I know guys who’ve had shoulder surgery and they weren’t much fun to be around. :( As for what you can do to help your Mom, just being there probably means a lot to her and letting her take it easy. BTW, I tagged you in my last post. :)
