I'm in the library right now... mentally preparing to get into my 82938747th study session of the day it seems. I have two exams tomorrow, and the first one is at 8am. I hate having two exams on the same day because it's so unfair to have to budget my time, confuse the material, and figure out which one is more important to study for. So, I've been going back and forth between Information Technology Management (ITM - the class is just about as interesting as the title implies.. if not less so) and Psychology.
The point of this post was to discuss the Midnight Breakfast, a great SLU tradition. Every finals week, the Student Government puts on a midnight breakfast from 10pm-12am. There is delicious and plentiful amounts of food, and best of all, it's FREE! Students line up outside the doors and wait to get in before seats of the Freshman dorm cafeteria run out. I got there early and was about the 20th person in line. Not too bad. So now I'm back at the library by 10:40 with my cup of cocoa-to-go in hand, ready for some studying. The library is right across from the cafeteria, so I can still hear the music they were playing outside -- classic Christmas tunes. All I want to do right now is go dance in the snow. There is no snow on the ground, so that's impossible. But I still want to do it. I don't want to study anymore today!
The Midnight Breakfast is one of the greatest parts of finals week, because you see tons of people you know, you go with your friends, and you get to eat massive amounts of breakfast food after a long day of studying. It's the most necessary of study breaks.
I've already kicked 2 of my finals in the bum, so I've had a good start. After tomorrow, I'll be 2/3 of the way through! I don't have any more until Monday and Tuesday, so I've got a nice little break coming up. Tomorrow night I've scored a ticket to see the Rockettes at the nearby Fox Theater, and a group of 4 girlfriends of mine are all going together. I'm excited! It will just want me to be able to kick my legs up high though, which might not be so good for those standing in front of me. Oh well.
Alright, I think I've procrastinated enough. Back to my oh-so-boring ITM studying. Databases, anyone?
