You can’t sleep through life if you wants to live it. -Alice Walker
Well, here it is – the end of the first weekend in November. How the heck did that happen?!
It’s been a good month since my last post, and all I can think is, “Well, so much for blogging every day this year.”
Sure, I could whip out a bunch of posts and backdate them all, but I don’t have the time. Or the mental energy.
School is kicking my butt. And while I’m happy to be back in a classroom and happy to be reading and learning so many wonderful things, I am exhausted, and rather frustrated with myself for not doing this years ago. I should have done it right away, instead of waiting.
But hindsight is 20/20, and that which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, right?
I ought to be nigh unbreakable by the time I finish this degree.
Despite my best intentions, I expect I will not be posting much the rest of the year, though I will post when I can. Midterms are behind me, thank goodness, but the end of the semester is rapidly approaching, and I have some big projects ahead of me. Between school and work and family, something’s gotta give, and that something is this.
Next semester promises to be even more hectic, as I’m adding a class to my already heavy load. If you’re the praying type, keep me in yours – I’ll need all the prayers I can get to keep me awake and engaged. Pulling all-nighters was so much easier when I was twenty!
But this, too, shall pass, and hopefully something wonderful awaits me on the other side.
What’s new with you? Are you excited for the impending winter holiday season? Do you have big plans for the coming year?

HI! I missed that you were going back to school, but I think that’s fantastic. I’ve got tons of great big plans for the new year, all of which will probably go the same way my plans for this year have gone, which is to say…not? LOL I try not to expect much. Just roll with the punches and keep on moving. 🙂

Thanks! It’s been a crazy semester, but it’s been pretty fantastic, too. I’d rather forgotten how much I missed school! 🙂
I understand completely about plans going…er, not. Seems to happen with me all the time. Keep on moving is great advice, though – sometimes it’s the only thing that gets you through. 🙂
