Well, it’s here at last. The trees have donned their leafy green uniforms, the ENO hammocks have found their places amongst the summery shade, and every student is slowly dying a crippling death by means of final exams. This only means one thing for us here at Vanderbilt, and that thing is summer. Before we are set free to our respective internships and summer vacations, we must make it past the hurdles that stand between us and our 14 weeks of relative peace.
On the one hand, it’s an exciting time to be so close to freedom; yet, on the other, every student knows the amount of suffering that must be endured prior to said liberation. Instead of breaking out a study playlist, I’m choosing to leave you on a more optimistic note. As the last blog of the year, I think it’d be rather dull to go out with a memento of the anguish that my economics exams will impart. So, my dear friends, I leave you with this: the soundtrack of summer.
Until next year, my fellow countrywomen and countrymen.
