What I can hear... Grace sketching Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” and this:
I've been reading... The Catechism and Canon Law (for finals, of course. I wish I was cool enough to make those my choices for casual reading.)
Recent realization... 8 days. 8 freaking days left in Austria. that is all.
I'm oh-so-grateful for... chocolate and coffee, and my awesome roommate Grace. She’s been such a blessing this semester, and I don’t even want to think about not seeing her for 3 months this summer. waahhhh… I’ll miss you, girl! Prepare yourself for frequent visits in your room next semester.
Next week... 3 days of finals, 1 full day of cleaning and packing, 1 (literally, purposely*) sleepless night, 3 days in IRELAND, 16 straight hours of travel, and home. Yes. It’ll be one heck of a week.
(* since most people are flying directly home, we have a midnight mass and then they keep us up and drive us right to the airport around 2:30 am. It should help with jet-lag in the States. Unless, of course, you’re making another stop before the States, as we are. So basically, we’ll be 5 completely exhausted, brainless, wanderers meandering around Ireland. Hey, I’ll take it.)
I'm looking forward to... Right now, I’m really, really looking forward to Ireland. It’s been my dream since I was 7 to go there, and Irish Dancing for 11 years definitely helped that wish increase. Homeland, here I come!!
And last but certainly not least, prayers for my sister, brother-in-law, and their 5 kiddos, as they've all caught a stomach bug. Not fun!
