Soon the finish line
For science, I will wake up awful early, and brave the Winter. As a nerd in becoming, it is my duty to attend my chemistry laboratory no matter what. Actually, my lab partner, and I have agreed to be the first one to start in our class since she has to work afterwards, and I wanted to keep the rest of the day to advance on some studying.
I’ve been diligent, and carefully read all the steps of the experiment. I also prepared the necessary spread sheet for the report even if my mind wanted to laz around. It’s the end of the semester, and everyone is tired at this point. Luckily, I’ve been taking care of my sleep health, and I’m doing okay. Though, a bit of rest, and stepping away from the books for a few days will be welcome in the Holidays.
Mostly, what I miss most is socializing. Soon, I’ll mingle with my loved ones. For now I need to give just a little push to get over this hill. I chatted with my mom to plan for the Holidays, and I’m eager to visit her new place and spend time together. I’ll be reaching out for my dad soon to do the same. I haven’t seen him face to face since 2018, a lot of time has passed.
I’m a bit nervous, I’m not sure what to talk about, and how to relate to my father after that much time. Our interactions have been limited to emails, and phone conversations on important days like birthdays, and Holidays. I’ve had an ongoing disagreement with my half-sister, and brother since 2015 which has impacted my attendance at family gatherings. Also, I lived two time zones away, and couldn’t join most of those years. It feels weird to be back in my home province, and plan for such things again. I didn’t expect it. There’s a lot that unfolded in ways that I would have never predicted. It’s been for the best, but I’m still adjusting.
I need to get some sleep to be somewhat be alive in the morning. At least, the brain work was done today so all I have to do is follow the step by step instructions. As for my family interactions, all in good time. Right now, time to rest.
