Newcastle 365 Week 25 & 26

Are you a pessimist or an optimist?

Apparently, I’m more of a pessimist than I care to admit, because the idea of this year being half over already fills me with an overwhelming sense of despair.

Half over? Already?

We finished our final taught module this past Friday. I have a few weeks off for Easter break, and then we’ll have two field study modules. And then I’ll write my dissertation. And then I will have a Master’s Degree.

Say whaaaaaaat?!

What an incredible 6 months it has been. I have visited 2.5 new countries*, I have made some incredible friends, and I have learned so much about a subject that I’m completely head-over-heels in love with.

When did I get so lucky?

Here’s to you, Newcastle. May the next six months be just as wonderful as the first.
