Welp, two weeks to go and I’m losing my mind! This last week has been really rough on me as I’ve tried to balance schoolwork and doing all the things I feel like I need to do before I leave and knowing these are my last days with all the friends I’ve made here, etc. Every time I have to say I can’t go out because I have to do homework, I die a little inside hahaha. It’s hard saying no knowing that these are my last opportunities to get the most out of Mexico!
But I have taught myself to not kill myself over schoolwork like I do in the United States. I try not to stress about getting the highest grade possible, and I’ve been trying to focus more on balance. It has done A LOT of good for me. I would have never had the chance to experience all the wonderful things I’ve experienced here or done all of the fun things I’ve done if I had worried as much about school as I do at home.
The tough thing will be getting back into the groove of things when I get back into my classes at UT next semester! But we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.
With all that being said, I’ve been trying to finish all my final projects and study for all my final exams a little bit early so that I can have the last week free to spend time with my friends and go out and do everything I haven’t had the chance to do yet.
This weekend, I’ll be going to Playa de Carmen for a music festival on the beach called Corona Sunset and spending the weekend there. I can’t wait for a chance to relax after studying, studying, studying the past few weeks.
Aside from that, there are a few archaeological sites and cenotes really close to Merida that I’ve been wanting to see since I got here but just never got the chance. I’ll also be visiting all of those during these last couple of weeks.
Hopefully I can survive this last week of school and finals! >_<
