“But They’re More Like Subtle Raisins…”

Good morning all!

Well, this is it.. The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Today officially starts the race to the finish that will include 5 tests in the next seven days.

It may be a bit rough.

But this morning as I was thinking about what to write as a post, I happened to come across a Facebook conversation (thank you Facebook memories!) between my freshman year roommate and I. It went something like this:

“I brought you a flower…but I ate it. I ate the flower.
But I don’t wanna be fat! Don’t make me fat!
Then eat your raisins!
No. They taste like raisins.
..But they’re more like subtle raisins..
Raisin’s aren’t subtle. They’re more kumquatish.”

Okay, so no one ever said that my friends and I are exactly sane.. But that’s not the point. Rather, this fantastically nonsensical conversation gave me three reminders that I would love to share as Finals Week Spring ’16 begins.


1) Don’t take life too seriously. No one makes it out alive anyway.

2) It’s okay to be a little bit crazy. I obviously am. Just be thankful for the people who embrace your crazy and love you anyway.

3) Never forget to smile. πŸ™‚

And with that, let the finals begin!!

Catch y’all on the flippity!
