One week to go -- not even seven full days, really. Seven days of early mornings. Seven days of scrambling to find books and car keys. But only three full days. The remaining school days dismiss at lunch, finals and farewells encompassing the morning hours.
One more year to go -- not even twelve months, really. One school year, which translates into nine months, which translates into roughly six months of actual school time when you remove weekends and vacation days.
