Well, we have reached the end of another semester and another school
year. I don't know about you, but at the end of every school year
(and this is the end of my 19th year in school counting kindergarten!)
I have the same conversation with people. This dialogue usually
begins something like this, "Can you believe the year is over--it went
by so fast!" You'd think we would have learned by now that things
seem to go by a whole lot faster in hindsight. On the other hand, in
the moment, we seem to dwell on the never ending assignments to
complete and studying required to get a decent grade in that
ridiculously difficult class. I remember in January, I was trying
balance classes, collecting data for my masters, practicum, a
part-time job, and fitting a work out here and there. At the time, I
felt stressed, sleep deprived, and as if I had no free time. Although
those feelings weren't completely subjective-- compared to some of my
friends, my life was pretty busy. Yet, here I am now writing about it
and thinking, maybe it wasn't all that bad. Either way, hindsight is
a funny thing that always should be taken with a grain of salt.
