Is it over yet?

Thank the gods, the long weekend is finally here. Did I ever need this break. I am really finding it exhausting working at the school but I think that's partly because of the atmosphere there. At least the worst is almost over. There are only 5 more teaching days and then exams start.

I'm really looking forward to getting back down below the 60th parallel, even if it is only for a couple of weeks. I wish we'd been able to afford travelling around longer and to more places though. It would have been nice to relax for 2 months in the "south". I think it will be nice to be up here too though. There are some really beautiful things to see during the Arctic summer, including caribou which I should finally get to see! I plan on going out with my little digital camera and taking lots of pictures of whatever I can find.

The days are so long now that it’s really messing with my head. Last night I was sitting at my desk after ten o’clock at night and there was still a good amount of light outside. I still tend to get tired around ten anyway but my brain always thinks that I’m getting tired earlier because of the light. It gets bright pretty early in the morning too but we have blinds and curtains on the window in an effort to keep the light out in the wee hours.

I want to try and get something productive done this weekend but I'm not sure if I've got the energy for it. I think it might end up being a weekend of lazing around and playing video games or watching TV/Movies.
