The worst is over! And it is the biggest relief. I feel like I am coming out of a cloud. I spent days in front of my computer writing and writing. Today I finished a hellacious take home final for a class that took forever and culminated in a 20 page document. Oi. I got up at 6am this morning and finished at 5pm. No break. My brain turned to mush.
I feel like this huge weight has been lifted. I am not doing anything related to school for the next 10 days. And then I will begin my very last quarter of school forever. My thesis is mostly written, I will have some changes to make before its final draft, but I have a full complete draft.
I hated not blogging or being able to comment back on people blogs! I feel like I had nothing even remotely interesting to say unless you wanted to hear about gender role attitudes and fertility intentions… which, really, nobody else does
I am currently sitting on the couch with Ryan, Buce (the kitty), and a margarita. It feels good. I really had moments the past couple of week that I felt despondent. I knew that I could do it, that was never a question, but my moods messed with things. I felt so off and emotional and crappy. And now I feel like I am at the end of the tunnel. Like I am breathing my first big breathe of fresh air in SO long.
So Spring Break. Here is the plan.
Tomorrow, I will be submitting another draft of my paper to finish a class, but I don’t need to make any changes to it before I submit it. So, I will do it over my cup of coffee in the morning after Ryan leaves for work.
Then, I am getting a massage. Doing a little shopping for my vacation. Eating lunch with Ryan. And getting my hair done-did.
Then tomorrow, my dear friend Olivia is flying in for the evening to LAX (her connecting flight isn’t until the morning). Olivia is an amazing source of light in my life. She is the most honest, genuine, and glorious human alive. We met in the most perfect summer of my life working at a summer camp. She is where I go when my soul needs advice. When I feel like I am losing myself. She always know how to talk me through it. She has the words that quiets my heart. This kind of friend is so priceless. And I know that she will be in my life forever. She is my sister. And I can’t wait to see her tomorrow!!
On Saturday I get a whole glorious day with Ryan. We are going to the movies, and taking naps, and spending the whole day together. I am so excited. I have been so stressed lately, it has really taken a toll on my mood and my how I was feeling around Ryan. I felt off. I knew it would pass, and it has. I am so looking forward to this Saturday.
Then, on Sunday. I am road tripping. Driving by mylelf. Spending some time just with myself and the open road. I will visit: my mommy and go horse back riding, Ryan’s sister to hug the baby, dinner with my daddy, and then a few days with my Grams and Grandpa. This is going to be the greatest spring break ever.
