Hello everyone 🙂 You miss me? I could offer a million excuses for my absence last week, like how I was too busy trying to find research for my final paper in my final reall class of grad school, or how the internet access to my laptop has been shady at best (even though it works fine on my iPad and phone…). I could blame the totally self-indulgent weekend with the BF, or enjoying some rare free time with my dad while he was off painting the new house.
But the truth of the matter is I spent the last week eating cupcakes…. lots and lots of cupcakes.
Okay fine I do have a few other accomplishments to round up, and what better way to do that than with a list?
Last week I took my last ever exam in my last ever “real” course in school. Ever. True I still have written comps in 3 weeks (yikes!) and I have papers to write for my finals, but in a few short weeks I will be basically, completely finished.
I received notice of my medical placement (again with the yikes!) for the spring last week, though I’m more anxious to get my school site since I start there in January. But everything is coming together very neatly here at the end of the semester and I’m trying not to freak out that by this time next month I’ll only have a semester of school left. Wow that sounds really final when I write it out…
In other school related things I outlined my final paper for voice disorders and did some research on happiness for my counseling class (look for more on that later this week).
Fitness this week was…. not as good as I had hoped. But one part of being committed is being honest when those commitments fall through… I only ran 5 miles total last week. And all of them were pretty rough. I’ve got myself laid out to clock quite a few more this week in anticipation, but at the current rate it looks like Thanksgiving’s 5k is going to be rough.
I was good on the yoga and general stretching things this week though so I guess there’s that 🙂
Other than that the biggest thing I did last week was celebrate my birthday. I came home from class on wednesday to a shelf I wanted assembled in my room, topped with the aforementioned cupcakes,a new wallet, and some pretty balloons. Thanks mom and dad!
The two other birthday indulgences included a long awaited DIY project….
I’m a tea drinker, and a big fan of displaying my jewelery. For $2 and some hot glue this seemed like the perfect solution.
I promise to be back on a regular schedule this week… and at some point catch up on all of your posts and comments! Happy Monday.
