Silver Lining: nipping at your heels

March 29, 2012

nipping at your heels

This is the time of the semester that really starts nipping at my heels. Is anyone else feeling this way? Projects, papers, assignments, homework, tests, and all my practicum stuff. Not to mention I have an interview for my very first real-life teaching job on Monday. Nerve-wracking. And what should I wear?

Not to mention, I found two spiders in my bathroom this morning. Two! And it's not even 6am yet. Which is another thing. Waking up at 5:30 every day is not necessarily good for the soul.

But. I have so many good things going for me. My sweet husband is at the top of that list, as always.

Here are some things I'm looking forward to when this semester's over.
reading books
warm weather
more books
arizona for a wedding
california for a wedding
oregon for a wedding
sunshine on my eyelids
and reading more books still

P.S. Once my aunt and uncle took us out to dinner. It was perfect timing, and so yummy. Thanks guys.

Also, last week my other aunt and uncle got us front row seats at a Jazz game with a private buffet before and at halftime. Sam died and went to heaven. Thank you too, guys.

It's one crazy, busy, sleepless life I live, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.


  1. I hear you about this time of the semester being incredibly stressful. This is my last week of class which meant a 12 pg paper was due (this morning!), I had two presentations, 2 papers due, practicum portfolio due and of course classes full of exam review which only leaves me feeling more stressed out lol. Good luck with your week! Summer is soon!! xo

  2. You have some awesome aunts and uncles! 2 spiders in one morning would send me straight back to bed, but at least you have a fun summer to look forward to.

  3. Who is that grumpy old guy in your picture? :)

    Life is crazy, but the sad news, it only gets crazier. Finish strong! You can do it! Keep up the good work! And other pep-talk phrases...

  4. you're a crazy woman :)

  5. Yes, I'm starting to feel the mid-semester pain too!!! So overwhelming - just have to keep reminding myself to take it one day at a time!

  6. Good luck at your interviews! That is super exciting! :] And yay for you for looking forward instead of getting too super stressed with how crazy things are right now! I can't wait for this semester to be OVER!!

  7. Ugh...spiders. That's an awful way to start the day. Good luck with your interviews!! Yay for reading again!!

  8. Cute blog...found you through Emma and Race!

  9. Awww you guys are so cute! I love the jazz games! My family goes to dinner at the top as well! Maybe we have seen you guys???! I always grab a huge handful of those colored chocolate mints! They are my favorite! My husband and I went to BYU but just recently moved to Texas and I stumbled upon your cute blog! Mine is! Married life is the best!!! You two are darling!
