ok, so that's that. i've actually watched more movies, but i just listed the ones i hadn't seen already. so when you keep in mind that it's been about 15 weeks, that's an average of 4.2666... movies a week. i have a lot of free time.
it's nice that i'm finally leaving liking my school. not in love with wellesley, still have a lot of beefs with her, but i like it, and for the most part, i'm glad i'm here. this semester has definitely been the best so far. considering this time last year i left feeling absolutely miserable (really, i've never felt that awful before in my entire life) this past year has been an incredible improvement.
so tomorrow i have my last final and then the storage company is picking up my boxes around 5. and then it shall be me, my luggage, and my computer. no sheets, no pillows, no clock, no pretty decorations, nothing. ick. but the packing is almost done, thank god, because wednesday was basically one long, crippling anxiety attack over packing.
and i leave for china two weeks from today! yes! ah, i'm so excited! my professor got us a grant from the school so we (my prof and i) are going to make a documentary about our shanghai program. it's going to be so great. i'm going to learn chinese and buy a ton of cool stuff. lots and lots of movies. mmm, i'm drooling.
well that's it. i'll see some of you while i'm home, and to those of you who i don't, have a great summer. look out world, here i come.
