G-7: Graduation Minus 7 Days

Today was mountain recuperation and try to get work done day.

In the morning I went to the post office to pick up a registered letter that had come for me.  It was a graduation congratulatory card from my godmother. 🙂

I didn’t really progress much with my thesis.  I spent most of my day looking at the clock since my parents arrived in Switzerland today.  They came a week before graduation–I’m not sure why–and they arrived today at around 19:00.  Greg and Pauli came with me and we had dinner at a local restaurant.  The restaurant was rather poetic in a way.  Four years ago went my parents drove me here to Lugano to start my freshman year, we had trouble actually locating the campus.  We pulled into the parking lot of this restaurant and asked them for directions, not knowing that the school was across the street.  So now, four years later we are dining there; having learned something in a way.

The dinner wasn’t as awkward as I thought it would be (or at least I didn’t think so), and we ate tons.  Pizza, pasta, fondue, and dessert.

We got back to the residence at 23:00 and now there is little time, or motivation, for me do too much studying for my Global History midterm in the morning or any thesis writing.  It kinda sucks.  I really wish everything in my life wasn’t piled on to this one week.   Sooooo stressful!  Half of it is my fault, but the other is just bad planning on the school’s part I think.

Urg,  Wish me luck on my final history exam tomorrow!
