Finals are over. It feels amazing. However, I do not think that I have gone to bed before 3am in a week. At the beginning of the week it was mainly finals that kept me up, but finals are over with so shouldn't I be able to sleep now? No.
Check outs have been consuming our lives. This is the most check outs we have had at semester in a long time. Most people are just moving rooms, floors, or halls but there are a few that are not returning. That is too bad.
Wednesday I finished my finals and thought that we could really relax now, inbetween check outs that is, but it just got crazier. Around 9ish we all got called for an emergency meeting. Turned out that the fire alarm system in Concho broke. If there was a fire we would have no idea. Yeah not good. Sooooo, what we had to do was rounds every hour on the hour until 6 in the morning. I was on the early shift 11 to 1 with Rick, Alyssa and Hope. We had a lot of laughs because we were soo loopy. We had to have air horns in case we needed to evacuate and Rick put his in his front pocket. He bent over twice and both times set off the air horn scaring himself. It was two very priceless moments.
Thursday we had our staff party and luckily for us the system was fixed so we could relax and have fun. From there I went to DeAnna's to have family Christmas with Daniel, Desiree, and Shane. Yep that is right Shane came! It was great fun and we all got a lot of great presents. SHANE GOT ME A PINK SNUGGIE!! I am wearing it right now and it is amazing.
I'm on duty tonight. No one is here so it should be a good night. Maybe I will go hang out in the lobby and watch a movie inbetween rounds.

It snowed. Last Friday I woke up to a winter wonderland. It was amazing! I had been wanting snow for so long and it finally came. It even snowed in Houston!
We still had classes, boo. However, two of mine were cancelled so it was pretty nice. I actually got to enjoy the snow this time. It was nice that it was on a Friday so we could really just relax. Desiree, DeAnna, Daniel and I decorated the tree and watched the movie New in Town. Pretty good movie. It was funny. We really just laid around and relaxed before we had to start studying.
It is now the wonderful Monday of finals week. I had one final today and will have three on Wednesday. Yay. I am just ready to be done with my last fall semester! Around 3 0'clock Wednesday, life will be amazing. Just saying.
