Saturday Musings + Coffee – Penultimate Peril

In case you don’t know, that’s a reference to the second-to-last novel in A Series of Unfortunate Events. 

Like the Series of Unfortunate Events novel, this blog post is the second-to-last in my Saturday Musings series from my freshman  year of college. In two weeks, I’ll have officially have completed a whole year of school, and I should hopefully have spent the last night in my dorm until fall.

I’m not going to go on about I can’t believe this year is over, since I’m probably going to be doing  that a lot in the next couple of blogs. I’ll spare your ear for now from when I harp on about that topic over and over again for two weeks. Rest assured, I will definitely be discussing that reality soon.

In case you were wondering, I have started eating again! I did not, however, find my old ID. I caved and bought a new one. Still have no idea what happened to the old one — I’m beginning to wonder if I accidentally threw it in the trash in the bookstore when I threw away my bagel wrapper and smoothie cup on Thursday night. I thought if I had dropped it, someone would have turned it by now, and while it’s possible someone stole it, I have never once had to deal with theft while here at Notre Dame.

That’s perhaps one of the things I was most surprised by when I got here — people just leave their wallets and phones and laptops out unattended. You do have to be a little more careful on football weekends when there are visitors, but on average days, you can pretty much trust that your stuff was safe. Had I done that in my high school, I would be out all of my valuables within hours.

Yay human beings with good values?

But now for the “peril” part of that title — before I get to rest from the whole year of school, I’m going to have to get trough all of my finals. I have dozens of pages of papers still to write and a massive exam to study for before I’m home free. It’s a truly perilous task I face.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one! Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at!
