Welcome to the start of a two-week countdown. Between now and next Friday, I will write one paper, take one quiz, and finish two exams. I’m so excited. Let these next couple weeks be filled with fun, tight schedules, and no anxiety. How was everyone’s weekend? Anything exciting? I’d love to hear from you!

But let’s take some time to be grateful today.
