It's that time of year again...and there IS a right answer....

Hard to believe it's that time of year again...but it is.

As always at the close of the semester, the Park School is buzzing with creative energy (OK, so some of it is caffeine-induced....but it's creatively caffeine-induced) and deadline anxiety.

A few words of wisdom (deanly wisdom - it's not exactly Solomon-esque, but it is the voice of experience):

Relax. Breathe. Smile. You always make it -- even though, at this point of the semester, it always seems like you won't.

At this point, you're always sure there's no way to get it all done. You're always positive you're not going to finish everything in time, there's just NO WAY....but you know, somehow you always do.

You always have that extraordinary and surprising moment when you look around, you exhale, and you realize that it's over....all the exams and the papers and the projects and the meetings and the sleepless's all over.

Sometime between this minute and that one, do something nice -- for yourself and for your fellow Parkies.

Take an hour -- or two, or three -- and show up at one of the extraordinary events that run nonstop between tomorrow, December 4, and the end of the semester on December 19.
