My Blog List

It was a long week.

And it's not over. Hmm. Friday isn't really the beginning of the weekend. And Saturday is almost as bad. So guess what I did assuage my woes?

We watched Stargate. They took our beloved show off of Hulu and we searched high and low for another version of it on the internet. We weren't disappointed.

So it was one of those nights. Try as I might, doing homework would have been counterproductive. And I'll start researching as soon as I post this...

It was also one of those nights where nothing sounded good to eat and so I ate a conglomerate of stuff. Note, I was not willing to wait for something to cook. Let alone cook something. Yes, your beloved "I love cooking!" chef called it quits tonight. It was hard enough to wait for the toaster. The list will prove my humanity.

3 pieces of Toast, two with butter and one with butter and jam
1/2 a can of olives
cooked carrots with butter and brown sugar
1 stale carmel
2 recees peanut butter cups (small version)
1 pillow mint
1 small dove square

And so I say to myself: There will be more productive nights. Life goes on. Who says I have to work 24/7 to have worth? And who says a graduate student has to kill herself in order to deserve a diploma?

So what if the kitchens a tad dirty. Who cares if I didn't clean the bathroom last week. And what about doing my homework during every free moment. Do I have to? NO! And (gasp) it's ok.

At least that's what I tell  myself. We're working on the believing part.

And here is a picture of my previous stress-free self that we are trying to re-emulate.

I wish myself luck.

You didn't clean the bathroom last week? Heck, I didn't clean the bathroom last MONTH. And that's totally OK. I'll clean it when it clean it.

Try to enjoy these last weeks of your degree program! There will never be another time in your life when you have all this information at your fingertips and right on the surface of your brain. I know it's SO stressful, but hang in there. I know you can do it, and do it well, but try to enjoy it!!

Call me if there is anything I can do to help!! LOVE YOU!!!
