Overwhelmed with Thankfulness

I know… I know that Thanksgiving was a month ago, and that it seems silly to be completely thankful during the dreaded finals week. But here I am.

This semester, while not my hardest, won in the most mentally challenging category. Because of that, I didn’t have the time or energy to keep posting. (Sorry about that) I’ve been overwhelmed and stressed, trying my hand out with Grad-School while still being a solid undergraduate. I often felt inadequate (and proved it frequently, I might add) I was stretched beyond what I thought I was capable of academically; and sleep, while I love it, was only addressed as a desperate need rather than a welcome, refreshing friend.

Yet, here I am. I survived!

While all of this was happening, I got to hang out with the best people, quite possibly, in the world. They are amazing, encouraging and funny. I am so happy that I decided to stick it out with the theatre production, even though I had no lines and really no one would miss me if I decided to quit. The relationships I made with the cast members was the best part. I love theatre, and “theatre people” constantly prove that they are the best.

I am also deeply excited that Dan is back for the Holidays. That is the best part, I think. Having him home for Christmas finally. Even in all of the stress of paper writing and proving my academic worth, I was just giddy that he is home this year.

I am thankful for this semester. I am excited to start the next one and graduate in May! (Finally!)

I hope that everyone’s holidays are special. For all of my fellow school friends: I wish you a lot of naps. 🙂

I am a reader of many beautiful things, a fantastic knitter and a lover of wine. I love writing stories. I am a daydreamer and very neurotic, but my husband married me anyway. Bless that man. Really, I am just a girl who finally figured out what she wants in life.
