Unfortunately, this is a dream of mine, not a reality.
I have been studying for the past week for multiple tests. I am tired, and I am not the only one. It is becoming quite the struggle for us college students.
I have studied a lot today for this test. I don’t really know if I have ever studied that hard. I really wanted to make a good grade because I needed it bad. It’s in a science class and science classes aren’t really my thing.
The nervous system? Cute. I don’t care what’s in it. That’s why I pay a doctor. Simple as that.
Therefore, those of us who are disinterested in a subject should not have to focus on it heavily. I mean the teacher knows that this class is full of people taking it because they don’t want to take “real science classes”, yet for some reason she enjoys making the test difficult. I may be exaggerating a little bit because I am just not a good test taker, but still it was not walk in the park.
I knew it wasn’t going to be so that is why I studied so hard, but it was still very discouraging coming out of the test. Not only was I tired, my brain felt a little dead. I also didn’t have a strong feeling about how I did, which worries me.
Oh well oh well! Enough talk about this test. It is over… Praise his holy name!
After the test, in between classes, I checked my e-mail and noticed I had an e-mail explaining that I had a package to pick up at my dorms front desk. I thought this was extremely weird because I have a P.O. Box and anyone sending me something would just send it there. I don’t even know my dorm address. Needless to say, I was confused.
A couple of hours later I headed to my dorm and I had kind of forgotten about the package. I walk in my dorm and in the lobby people start yelling, “Happy Birthday!!!” “Is it your Birthday?”
I kind of looked around at who they were talking to and they were talking to me! Yeah, how nice of them, but it’s sadly not my Birthday. I told them this and they said that I had a package at the desk. I go to the desk and there is a huge bouquet of cookies with a note for me. I could not imagine who it could be from?
And of course, I should of known. Hillary Dunklin always knows how to make my day 1000 times better. Between the stress and the fact that I felt way out of it, I almost cried. It is literally one of the sweetest things anyone has done for me in a long time. Hillary knew I had a lot of tests and things going on so she did what she could to make me feel better. One of the many things I love about her. Hill, I cannot tell you how much that meant to me. I am so blessed my our relationship! I literally don’t know what I would do without you! You are such an amazing role model and I love having you in my life. Thank you thank you thank you for taking the stress off my day by placing a huge smile on my face. I am certainly thankful for you and your surprises. I love you lots and lots!
So I don’t know what I made on the test, but regardless at least I will have a basket of cookies to stuff my face with when I find out. Oh how I can’t stop smiling. Hillary and her surprises are something to be thankful for!
