final review

What a crazy crazy semester. I feel like I have developed some friendships that will last far beyond graduate school and that alone is something to be grateful for. I know that people say they don't come to graduate school to make friends, but why close a door on that potential? A good friend is a hard thing to find and the conversations that are the fruit of those friendships may lead you to entirely new directions. I've learned so much and pushed myself farther than I thought possible. It's been a very demanding semester, but I feel like I gave it my all and that is all I can do.

I'm disappointed that we were split up between first years and second years. I know that thesis required a special quiet zone, but I missed having all 12 of us in one space. I learned a lot from the second year students last semester and wish I would have had that relationship this semester as well. (Maybe some of them feel the same?)

Tomorrow it will be out of my hands. I have worked hard, practiced, and slept. I will do my best and that will have to be enough.

I hope tomorrow goes well for everyone.
