It’s the last week of term. Last Thursday was my final day of teaching (thank you, jebus!) so now I can focus most of my time once again on my dissertation. That is when I’m not going to a party. The end of term requires that every separate entity in this university (departments, colleges, clubs and organizations) has its own celebration. I’ve been to two parties already and have at least three more to go. That’s not including all the birthday parties either. It seems most of my friends are June babies. I guess Labor Day is a very productive day...so to speak.
Anyway, all this celebrating is temptation overload. So much food and drink and it’s all free. The party on Friday is being held at an Indian restaurant and everything is being paid for by the college. It’ll be a miracle if I don’t gain 10 pounds in the next week.
Ci vediamo dopo. (See you later)
