Well hey there,
I know, I know…I’ve failed miserably at keeping up with this whole blog deal. You’ll have to forgive me, k? K. Now that we’ve settled all that, I’d thought I’d fill you in on what’s happened the past few (errrr…almost eight) months.
September-December was filled with me just focusing on blazing through the semester. It was a toughie too, but I made it out alive. It was questionable for awhile there.
December came and I flew off to NYC with some friends the week before Christmas! We saw the sights, shopped (Canal Street is AMAZING, people), saw some shows, and had an overall rocking time. This was my second trip to NYC and I loved it just as much as the first time if not more. The first go-around was mostly business and a quickie trip, so having the time to just enjoy the city and relax was much needed. Christmas with the family was awesome; nice to have all of us in one place finally and not in different continents. Best Christmas present? I found out I’m going to be an aunt again!!! My sis announced to us on Christmas that she’s one month prego! So excited.
January came and so did the start of my FINAL semester for my undergrad degree. Holy cow. It seems like it’s taken forever to get here, but at the same time it’s totally flown by…does that even make any sense? And as part of my final semester, I am required to do an internship so I started that up to. I’m interning at United Way in a town a little over an hour from me. So that means my schedule consists of leaving my house at 6:30AM, driving to get to internship by 8:00AM, working eight hours, getting back in my town at 6:00PM, and then I go to my “actual” job until 10:00PM or so, go home and do homework (yes, I still have homework despite doing a non-paid internship), try to fit a workout in somewhere (not always successful), catch a few zzzz’s, and wake up and do it all over again. Four days a week (T-F) and on Mondays I have class at the university all day long. A killer research class this semester too.
February brought much of the same as January in regards to the whole internship/school junk, BUT it also brought the wonderful news that my brother FINALLY popped the question to his girlfriend (after like eight years of dating) so I am going to have another sister come May!
My life was on repeat of the above schedule for the entire month of March. I also finished all my grad school applications and now I have to make some pretty big decisions…woohoo. Oh, and on Monday my sis found out that the little human being inside her is A BOY!!!! So, yep, I’m super stoked about soon having ANOTHER cutie pie of a nephew to spoil rotten.
And April is just around the corner. It’s filled with five papers, two tests, two HUGE deadlines at my job, the last couple weeks of my internship, and not a whole lot of sleep. Bring it on, April, bring it on. (And May will be filled with my graduation(!), brother’s wedding, and some big decisions regarding my future).
Have have y’all been? Anything new in the last eight months?
