This week has been a week of many things – The Iron Lady’s final send-off, the horrifying Boston Marathon bomb blasts, gold prices sliding to a new low and just in today, suspected nisin poison detected on a letter addressed to President Obama. It brings us pause in our daily routines, wondering if all that we aspire to and aspire for truly have a similar magnitude in the greater overview of life. But yet, this is our reality and we move on in our lives, knowing that there is an end to it and for that worthy cause, we continue to strive.
So yes, dear friends, we have come to Week 13 and the end of the semester. Finals loom menacingly and for some of us, they’re already knocking on our doors, given certain 100% CA modules. We stress out over the minute details and burn midnight oils incessantly, hoping that this is the last dash that could pull it up to a better grade. Or for some of the luckier ones, we know an A or an A- is imminent – Week 13 is simply a breeze. I wish I could say I was part of the latter group but alas, I too am burning the midnight oil everyday to date. Even so, we all need a break now and then because no brain is made to survive without pause.
