Today, I turned in my last paper. Then I wandered campus looking for people to give eggnog truffles to.
Then I did some Christmas shopping. And I wandered Barnes & Noble.
And I didn’t have to read anything or write anything. I didn’t have to do research or take notes or trudge through some brain-sucking analysis that might be total crap but feels like the most brilliant thing I’ve ever thought of. No studying. No brain whatsoever.
It felt great.
I’m excited to start baking again, especially holiday baking. And sleeping at normal hours. And writing because I want to, because I have something to say.
