It’s official: classes are OVER! Today marked the final day of classes for Fall semester, and I could not be more excited! There comes a point toward the end of every semester where I lose all motivation for school and am ready to be done. My brain feels fried, and I just don’t want to learn anymore. I hit that point about two weeks ago and have been waiting for today to come. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed all my classes this semester and am a little sad that I will not be seeing the same people every day anymore, but I need a break! A few weeks of little responsibility and no homework will be greatly enjoyed. Now I just need to get through final exams, and I get to go home for six weeks.
To celebrate the last day of classes, my roommates and I went to Bakers Square in Highland Park for Free Pie Wednesday. When you go to a Baker’s Square on any given Wednesday, you get a free slice of pie when you order food.
I was really excited to go because I hadn’t been to a Bakers Square since I was little. My mom and I used to go there all the time but then the one we went to closed down. Kelley and Betsy, my roommates last year, used to go to Free Pie Wednesday all the time last year so I had heard of people going all the time, but never got the opportunity to go. Well, I finally went, and the pie was amazing! I got cheesecake with strawberry drizzled on top. Yuuuuuuum. The food was really good, too. I had the French Dip with Swiss cheese, and it was delicious. Bakers Square is sort of like Perkins because it serves a breakfast menu all day, so my roommates all got breakfast food and loved it.
After stuffing ourselves with pie, we came back to our room and watched Tangled to top off the evening. It was the perfect way to spend the night with my roommates and to celebrate the end of classes! I have a feeling there will be more Free Pie Wednesday trips next semester.
