Well guys, I made it. (Assuming I didn’t fail my final class that I’m still waiting for a grade in!)
All the work of my undergraduate career, is over, and now all that’s left to do is walk the stage (NOT in a boot!)
My weekend was full of studying. I spent all day Friday working on a take home test, and then devoted Saturday and Sunday to studying for my Human Behavior final.
I took a break on Saturday for a spin class and an acai bowl. This was my first time trying hemp seeds, and I liked them in this context a lot but can’t imagine any other way I’d eat them.
Sunday, my advisor had all the senior pre-vets at her house for a goodbye lunch. Every year, she has her seniors paint her a tile. Guess which is mine? (The sheep.)
Monday I took my final exam of undergrad. Then finished my take home test that night.
Tuesday morning, I did a workout of bench presses, pull ups, and rows, and then I went to physical therapy for my foot for the first time. Honestly, it was a little rough after.
And from there, I went and turned in my take home final. And thus ends my Stanford career.
Lunch on Tuesday was super delicious: salmon lettuce wraps. Our chef makes the BEST salmon.
After lunch, I drove to my home-area to run some errands. First up, I picked up cupcakes for the end of the year party I was throwing that night.
From my FAVORITE cupcake place ever. These are GF, and I customized the flavors a bit by swapping the icing on the dulce de leche and chocolate cupcakes. BEST decision. Chocolate cake with dulce de leche icing, and vice versa.
After that, I made the mistake of heading to the mall to look for a dress for some of the week’s festivities. That was far more walking/standing time than my foot was ready for, and I was dying and grumpy by the time I left the mall. I don’t know if it’s stress fracture pain, weakness pain, or not walking in a month pain, but it was rough.
That evening, I went to a spin class (and took it easy of course), before heading back to the house to prepare for the party.
The part was really low key. I mostly wanted an excuse to eat cupcakes and see all of my favorite people one last time! I tried to get a picture with everyone, but ended up failing in that respect.
Check it out: no boot!
It was great to chat with my favorite people!
Later that night, there was a Stanford tradition that I’ve never done before. Apparently a giant group of people move around campus on the last day of finals. My foot wasn’t loving me, so I wasn’t sure how making it across campus was going to work, but my friends are legitimately the best. And the strongest. They literally took turns carrying my crippled butt most of the way across campus. Love them!
We met up with the group near the main quad, right as it was heading to the final stop, a big fountain. I have never seen anything like i in my life.
There was a giant boat that someone made and was carrying, with music. #stanford
I was so glad to be bootless and able to hang out in the fountain for a bit, taking it all in.
It was one of those days/nights that make me so grateful for my school, and all the amazing friends I’ve met. I really want to try and keep up to date on blogging this week, because I know I want to be able to look back on it, and I also want to share some of the Stanford traditions.
More fun/food/fitness to come soon!
