I. Am. Stressed.
There is no other way to discuss it. I have way too many projects to finish, a lot of work to do, and there is just not enough time to do it all. I really need to stop staying up so late, getting to bed early each night, and then getting up earlier in the morning to be more productive.
Tonight, I’m off to Starbucks post-class and then off to Mills Music Library to do a bit of work before grabbing the bus home. Somehow, in the past few days, it got incredibly cold. Yes, Wisconsin is cold in November, but this seems to be a different kind of cold. Just too brrrr out there.
Tonight, I am working on homework, wrapping a few Christmas presents (to add to the six already wrapped under the tree) and then heading to bed early. I may even decide to put on some now pajamas to cuddle into my bed this evening.
Bed. Warmth. Coffee. All of that sounds great.
I need my coffee stat.
What keeps you going as the weather gets colder?
Sometimes, you find exactly what you need to hear where you least expect it.
I am so looking forward to the weekend, to surprises, to seeing Sam. I have a gorgeous dress for Sigma Chi formal, beautiful jewelry, and an amazing pair of shoes. I just cannot wait. Two more sleeps and I. am. there.
I am incredibly thankful for where I am right now.
Here, this Tuesday evening, I am sitting in the State Street Starbucks with Allison, Dana, and Connie talking about everything: love, life, and school. Conversations have ranged from having babies, feeling bad about where we are academically, and everything else that occurs in life.
At one point, I questioned that I was in the wrong place. The wrong program. The wrong everything. At this point in my life, everything is right. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else in the world at all.
So thanks, Dana, Connie, and Allison. You three keep me happy, healthy, and on-track.
And laughing at hippo farts and panda poop.
