After the Rain


We all know the age-old saying, "April showers bring May flowers." It's one of my favorite seasonal quips. I happen to like the rain, especially in the springtime when its presence creates a glistening halo on all of the materializing buds. But, like anything, too much of it can become unfavorable. In the midst of the cold gray drizzle on Saturday, as I sat down at my kitchen table with my head in my hands, I realized how applicable the aforementioned adage is right now. In exactly two weeks, I'll submit my not-yet-finished Master's thesis. Before that date, I'll also complete three papers, two projects, attend several meetings and commence parent-teacher conferences. While the rest of my April seems daunting, and at times, nearly impossible, I know that come May, it is done. All of it. Just like that, I'll be able to savor those glorious flowers emerging from the rain.

  2. I wish we were on the semester system here so I'd be closer to finishing. Sadly, I'll be going with school until mid-June. And after that, I'll need to work on my thesis. There's just no time right now.
