Cleaning & continuing to pack. It’s sad to see my room being packed away, but I feel accomplished! At the rate I’m going, I’ll just have to pack essentials next week!


Food. Mostly likely eating some of the leftover pizza Sammie and I got from Pizza Hut last night! Om nom nom!

Heart of Virginia Festival! Looking forward to browsing the craft tables and hopefully seeing Shelby with her handmade books and journals!

Day 110: Friday, May 6, 2011

Yes I am writing this while still in the library, but my senior thesis is finally coming to a close. I am so proud for myself for being in the library all day and night, capping off 13 months of hard work 🙂 I am finishing this proudly, submitting it electronically, and heading to bed. Printing and submitting everything else after some sleep.

I cannot believe I have sat in the same study room pretty much consecutively from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., then from 6:30 p.m. to when I finally leave, sometime between 3 and 4 a.m.

Signing Stephanie’s shirt at 11, then recuperating all day tomorrow… ♥♥♥

Thesis is due at 2 p.m., but it will all be submitted far before that…

Broadcast Review Session 3-5:30 p.m. – Mmm brownies and other foods 🙂

Phone date with Al ♥♥♥

Then celebrating the last day of my undergraduate work here at Longwood!

In a mere 8 days I will be a college graduate – WOW!

All the best, Laura Beth 🙂

Finishing a few things in the room before 10 a.m. Actually, getting all distractions out of the way is more like it!

Then Greenwood Library, you and I become best friends. Yup, I’m locking myself in a study room all day, determined to get my thesis DONE!!!

Phone date with Al ♥♥♥ to reward myself later! It’s been GREAT being able to talk to him every day this week!

Then I’ll come out of hibernation for food and a walk around campus. By then, I’ll definitely need it!

Good luck to all my sisters with finals and safe travels home! ♥ AST ♥

All the best, Laura Beth 🙂
