as simple as a miracle

let me write another post about this semester.
S371 is giving me a head ache, every time I look at the syllabus and try to comprehend the vague descriptions of assignments it sucks.
S381 is probably my favorite class. It meets every other tuesday, my prof is cool, and my assignments aren't terrible.
S352 it seems like it'll be alright. Policy isn't my forte, I'm micro not macro.
S332 is alright. My prof is new and needs to prove herself this semester, so that'll be fun. At least she answer questions in a timely matter.

This work load is ridiculous. On top of my internship at Warren Central HS, and work, and personal time. All of my professors talk about 'self care' and how important it is to do. But we have ZERO time to do so because they give us too much work, a catch 22.

The further along in the program I learn more about the people who are in the same boat as I am. The girls are wonderful and make my thursdays fun.

Needless to say this semester is going to be as simple as a miracle.

Ello Govna'

I'm grateful for the life I live.
It's strange to think I haven't really settled in to who I am.
Waiting in transition, enjoying each season of life.

Wanting to be in a place I call my own.
A life we will build together.

Things are going to change from where we are today.
We will work at new jobs. I will have my degree.
We will be establishing ourselves in a different place together.

Thinking long term, I'm so excited about all the thoughts I have in my head,
about what my future will become.
Some days I'm reminded how wonderful things are currently,
and how wonderful they will be later.

Today is one of those days.

I'm in love with this dress!!
someone get it for me in a small


I'm beginning to wonder how I do it.
How can I possibly manage everything going on in my life right now.
What am I forgetting what am I neglecting to do?
I'm very overwhelmed but almost calm about it.
Accepting the fact that it's going to be stressful and hard work is helpful.
Doesn't make the sleepless nights and early mornings any easier.
Getting up at 6am is something I haven't done in years.
Now I am doing it at least twice if not three times a week.

I had a minor freak out yesterday on the phone with my best friend.
She's there for that, she's there to bring me back to square one.
Love her.

It's snowing pretty heavily right now. Hoping for a snow day, but that won't happen.
Looking forward to this weekend. I am excited about sleeping in.

[BSW= lots of work]

So this is the new year....

This year I am going to try a few things.
First of all I am going to start gardening, we have a wonderful large back yard that is yearning for a vegetable garden and some sunflowers.
Next I am going to keep up on my yoga. It makes me feel great and gives me energy.
Also I've got a new amazing cook book in which I am going to start cooking yummy things.
I'm really excited about being an intern at Warren Central High School under the vice principal.
It's going to be tough, but I am going to learn a lot.
Lastly, I wanna have even more fun. I want to try new things and go on new adventures with Bradley. He's the best person I know.

Happy 2011
