the torture of chalk dust collects on my tongue

It's week 5 of the 10 week quarter. 15 more weeks before I graduate. So close to being finished. And yet, sometimes the work starts to gather in dangerously large piles, consisting of material I don't particularly understand, and on which I will be tested very soon, and I wonder if I'm ever going to make it. But then, finally, 8 or 10 or 12 hours later, I've finished what I can for that day and I feel good knowing that it's enough, and I walk out of the engineering building and go home and I know I'm one day closer to being Done.
