We were up early this morning to see Dad off to the city; Mom had four cuddle buddies for the nap we had after Dad was on his way to Crystal Springs; and then it was on to our usual morning routine after that.
Snow was in the forecast, but it didn’t arrive here until mid-afternoon; and we only ended up getting a couple of inches.
Sorry about your luck, kids and teens – exams were on for today; and they’ll go ahead on time tomorrow too!
My exams today were Math, Graphic Design, and English. Yes, I aced them; but what’s really great is that most of my classmates were happy with how they did today too. While it would have been nice to enjoy that success, we had three more exams to get ready for tomorrow; so the big study sessions before and after dinner were at my house. Science, History, and Music were the study subjects of the night for most of us – except for the handful of friends that aren’t taking Music anymore this year and picked a different optional. That kept us busy, and while more than half of our friends had other plans for dinner; Mom ended up feeding the rest of us – and we traded that for doing a round of shoveling while waiting for the food to be ready.
With Science being one of the tough exams for so many of my classmates; we didn’t wrap up our study session until eleven o’clock; and that was mostly because the parents didn’t want to deal with driving their kids home later than that. Michael stayed a bit later than that to help with the clean-up and one more quick round of shoveling to deal with the last bit of snow that had fallen since the first round; and then we had a goodnight snowball fight before he went home and I came back inside and really got to work.
Mom skipped my Magi lesson, but I’ve had a lot of family business work to deal with – along with my language studying and the rest of my usual nightly computer and email checks. Getting all of that finished has taken me more than three and a half hours; I’m totally baked now; and it’s time to crash for a couple of hours.
Tomorrow will be a rinse-and-repeat of today without the snow and with different subjects for the exams and study sessions. I will manage to deal with everything somehow, starting with that short winter’s nap; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
