Finals are OVER!!!! [May. 21st, 2004|12:30 am]

I am finished for the semester!!! Hooray!!! I came in the door vibrating with energy. We celebrated with a houseful of friends for pizza and then karaoke with three karaoke virgins!

Karaoke is the best. Everybody gets their moment in the spotlight and you get to hear the best and the worst of people. Some nothing-looking little mouse gets on the stage and blares out Janis Joplin, a chubby girl with stringy hair has a voice like an angel, the guy who's grinning and wincing and he steps onto the stage makes heads turn and jaws drop. The ones who can't carry a tune but proceed with enthusiasm through a crowd favorite earn a roar of applause.

I'm exhausted now and need to get to sleep. Tomorrow evening and Saturday will be spent in solitary confinement, recovering. But tonight was celebration. And it was good.

Congratulations. :) I have three weeks left. I am soooo looking forward to summer vacation. I'll get to actually read a book for enjoyment.

Congrats Gini! :) Isn't that the most wonderful feeling - finishing that final exam, walking into the house, and realizing that you can now allow yourself to relax (at least for the time being), as there is no more school work pressuring you.

I certainly enjoyed that feeling much more last week than the feeling I got when I walked across the stage at commencement on Saturday. Kinda weird how that is, I guess.

Anyways, enjoy your well deserved weekend of catatonia...I'm going to be busy all weekend teaching stupid people how to play a stupid card game. :-P

My classes start again on Monday (have to finish two up still before they give me my actual diploma), but I'll see what my summer schedule looks like, if you're still up for hanging out again. Maybe I can tag along with you and Ferrett for the next Cleveland karaoke night. :)

oh, congratulations, congratulations. I know the feeling so well. Except without the Karaoke part, which you and theferret are, through your posts, luring me to participate in.

Re: kinda sorta mostly related

And how well you can write. I've had people whom Iconsidered my absolute peers on topics, and upon finding out they were only 15 had that initial, "Whoa!" experience - but continued to regard them with the same respect in their area of expertise.

Yay doneness! I love that moment when the clock is reset at semesters' end and you're no longer behind in anything... 'cept a month's worth of dishes ;-)

Congratulations!

Comleting a year is always a big... emotional schwew as I would call it.

Glad you had fun at Karaoke and yes, get some much deserved rest.

I'll add my congratulations to the chorus.

And I hope your isolation time helps. I know it always helped me when I was going to night classes and full-time work, to have that empty time to recover in.

Congratulations to you on getting through finals. I always found it felt like quite an accomplishment to me, too. And definitely good reason for going out and celebrating!

HA! Karaoke is the greatest. No one should consider it beneath them. If you ever come to Cleveland, I promise much karaoke.
