We have finally pushed into the final week of the school year. In some ways I ask, "where has it gone?" In other ways I ask, "how can it not be over yet?" I was thinking back to fall term when we had Plunge, the same week the Sox won the World Series. Seems sort of long ago in a galaxy far, far away. And yet in other ways, I realize I have been at Seabury for 2 years. Seems like just yesterday I was getting lost by wandering down all of Seabury's Hobbit holes. Strange how that works.
What's really weird is that I won't see one of my roommates until the beginning of spring term next year. I am going to be in England in the fall, and he is going away for field education winter term. Its really weird to think I will come back in January and there will be a whole new group of students I won't know. (And from what the registrar tells me, it might be a sizable class).
I went to a Cubs/Braves game yesterday with one of the seniors, and it hit me that this time next year, I'll be about to graduate. With Field Ed and Westcott House, I have only one academic quarter left at Seabury...how weird is that? And then I will be paroled, and that's even stranger. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
