Dear Ghost of weekend past

I feel like! what an action packed weekend...but actually it wasn't, and to be honest, it's one of the best weekends I've had in a long time:)

As most of you know by now i wrote my final big exam for my masters on Friday morning.  To say that i was stressed would be a complete and utter understatement.  I don't think I've ever been this nervous and stressed before an exam.  It's what I've been working towards for 2's scary.  The fact that i learnt last week that they were having issues with assignments i had submitted which they insist they didn't get and were therefore giving me zero did NOT help my stress levels.  The admin lady phoning me on Friday morning and telling me she doesn't think they'll be able to help me sent stress levels into overdrive.  But being level headed me i figured I'd worry about that after the exam....first things first.  Exam, then stress about the missing assignments.

I can't actually tell you if it went well or not.  It's all interpretive and argumentative and there is no black or white answer to the I'll have to wait and see how it goes.  Let's just say i didn't feel like committing suicide by the time i was done...that's a good start right?  Friday night was spent having a celebration dinner a very good friend.  It was finally over....2 years of working myself half to death was finally over, regardless of what the results look like....definitely something worth celebrating:)

Saturday morning i woke up with a start at 7:20am...*sigh* i better get up and study.  And then it hit me...i didn't have to.  I had nothing i HAD to do. I'm actually going to have a life again.  After 2 years this is definitely a life change.  I decided to spend the morning lying around and reading...something i haven't been able to do in a very long time.  Saturday afternoon was spent with the GirlGuides crew at Moyo Zoolake ...much fun was had:)  I expected to spend the evening quietly at home, but ended up going for a charming dinner at the Attic with a friend....surprise surprise...turns out that's exactly what i needed:)

Sunday was a super lazy and super awesome day.  Lunch with the replacements followed by an unexpected and content afternoon strolling around the mall with awesome company.  Right now I'd like to mention that life can be pretty sweet sometimes:)

So, ghost of weekend past, please pay attention and ensure that i have plenty more of these weekends in the near future:)  Also, can everybody please hold thumbs that it went really well with my exams:)
