Although it feels as though the world of finals will come crashing through my façade of sanity at any moment, this has been a pretty good week. I’m currently stressing through a history term paper (on freed slaves and the colonization of Liberia), but earlier today j’ai fait une promenade along the beaches of Dana Point and San Onofre for a geology field trip. I couldn’t have asked for a better morning. I actually got to put my hand on one of California’s famous faults that had cut through the sandstone cliffs along the beach. I got some new samples and enjoyed a morning out and about before coming back to buckle down on my paper. I know my friends back home in Montana certainly weren’t in shorts exploring the outdoors today… still a little too cold.
Finals week is almost here, and I have two more papers to complete before Friday, so the grind has started to define my life, even on a Saturday afternoon. I recently got word that I was again accepted for the Undergraduate Research Center’s summer research program, so I am excited for yet another Oxy summer! Until next year, mes amis.
P.S. Can you find the fault in photo? Hint: It’s not the horizontal line dividing the cliff.
