Amid finals and all the craziness that follows, I’m very aware of how much I dislike not having a schedule and expectations for myself, and honestly, for Patrick too. During finals, there is no “I’ll be home at 5.” or the dogs can be walked at X time. There’s just no reasonable way to do that. I am so looking forward to the day when I know I’ll be home at 6, I’ll walk the dogs in the morning, I’ll have dinner done earlier than 10 pm. But, right now, that’s not life.
