We’re coming to the final stretch in this marathon-turned-sprint of a semester. Today is my final exam and I can honestly note that my nose is raw from the grindstone I have been putting it against. Metaphors aside, I have reached the point of academic exhaustion that generally accompanies us at this point in the semester. Returning home and spending time with loved ones seems like the perfect holiday.
Before I get to that however, I spent some time saying goodbye to my favourite areas of the city and getting a bit more exercise. Yesterday after my exam I decided to ‘run home’- which do to my current lack of fitness resulted in 4k of the way run, and 5k walked, but that seems acceptable. It even started snowing again for my benefit, which made the ice-dodging, unfit-plodding substantially more enjoyable.
