We're now rounding off Week 5 of 17 for fall, and all is well in my world of academia. It's a challenging semester, but I embrace the challenge and am getting by. I've learned that I work well under pressure (deadlines, due dates), and that sometimes submitting a paper at 11:53 pm works out, and I can even be proud of the early submission--it wasn't due until midnight! All laughs aside, there are definitely moments of intense stress, and remembering to breathe, take time away from homework, and repeat the simple mantra, "I'm paying ridiculous amounts of money for this pain but I do so because it will be worth it," helps get through those moments. Stay strong!
In other news, I was accepted to the University of Kansas for Spring 2015, starting in January! Looks like this girl is going to head south (a few states, anyway). I'm way excited! Lots of details to iron out (job, etc.) but the wheels are turning. Yay!!!
Life is good, keep on smiling!
Peace and love! 💜
