Deadlines are looming over my head, my printer's ink is running low and I've got a couple of multiple-choice sheets and blue books on my desk, ready to be defiled, uh, I mean filled with the knowledge I've acquired over the quarter.

I don't mean to sound that bitter, oopsie, but it's dead week now, also known as the week before finals. My brain is all fuzzy from furiously trying to finish my final paper for Asian American Studies, cramming for my Communications final (which sadly isn't taking place during finals week) and trying to complete miscellaneous assignments. Oh, and by the time you read this, I'll be taking my final for Global Warming, and I'm certainly not looking forward to that.

Okay, I digress. Finals are necessary because, well, they're the torture we college students need to go through before ... spring break! Finally, we have a week off to do anything ... or, well, nothing.

Right now, there's nothing more I want to do than curl up with my laptop and continue binge-watching Grey's Anatomy, but that's the introvert inside me talking. Apart from well, doing nothing, my friends and I have made plans to explore more of Seattle.

We've spent way too much time stuck in the University District - it's sad to think that we've been in Seattle since September and we still haven't gone to the tourist attractions that most people cover within a few days. I mean, we haven't even gone to the Space Needle - sure, we can see it from our campus, but not actually visiting the Space Needle is like not going to The Peak in Hong Kong.

Never mind, I guess I'll have to snap myself out of this daydream - must ... get ... all ... that ... work ... done. Thankfully, spring break's just around the corner!
