I was technically finished with my finals yesterday, but I had to go back to school today to take care of some business for spring 2016, so it didn't feel like I was done with the semester. My brain is still winding down from the stress of the semester. Earlier, it was really bugging me a lot with this nagging feeling that I had forgotten something, but that has quieted down. The hardest part of vacation time is losing that sense of purpose that keeps me going in even the darkest of times. Still, it is just great to be writing for once and not pressured about a bunch of assignments to do. I am fairly sure about my Spanish grade, but philosophy is still a big question mark in my mind. However, I did manage to visit favorite guy and give him his present, so that worked out fine. I'm hoping that everything else works out for the best. *crosses fingers*

Now that the semester is over, I can get back to the very important business of actually living, otherwise known as spending way too much of my time on the computer. :D Seriously though, I do plan on going out more over my break because the only fun thing I did during the semester was go to visit my friend in Berkley over Thanksgiving. I will probably make my way out to see the new Star Wars movie. I wasn't fortunate enough to grow up watching the series, but the hype has certainly enticed me. I watched the original trilogy and the first two prequels for the first time last summer when I finally caved into peer pressure after waiting far too long to watch them. By the time I had finally watched the movies, I was already familiar with Joseph Campbell's wonderful The Power of Myth and the hero's journey stuff. I should probably get around to watching Revenge of the Sith while I'm at it because I have heard its the only good prequel. Besides, I'm still working on my "getting into science fiction" project," so it's about time to kick that back into full swing.

Speaking of which, I hope to use this time to catch up on my shows and reading. I'll probably give tumblr some more attention, too. Basically, media binging. There's not a lot of time to extend my yearly reading, but I do hope to finish up the books that have been marked as "currently reading" for at least months now without much progress. Maybe I can fit some sci-fi in there somewhere. To be honest, I want to drop everything and just read more of the Dresden Files, but I should finish up the year with some more diversity. I read the first six books this year, so there will be plenty of time to finish up the series next year if I so choose. I love Thomas, and Harry, of course. I wish I had started reading this series a long time ago when Harry Potter ended because it fills that hole in my heart nicely. I'm not sure I would put my enjoyment and love on the same level as my love for Harry Potter as it was still coming out, but the Dresden Files is still very addictive. I love the lush world it gives me to play around in and explore.
