I have an exam in 1 hour and 52 minutes in a class that is not coming easily to me. Last night, I finished an 8 page paper (with citations and everything!!) and homework for this class then studied until midnight until I just couldn't think anymore. Now typically, I have a difficult time sleeping the night before an exam and wake up before my alarm thinking of nothing but how much more I need to study.
That's typically. Today apparently is not typical. Instead of worrying about induction vs. strong induction proofs and Euclidean Algorithms, I woke up smiling knowing today was one of my dearest friends' birthdays; which led me to getting excited about another dear friends' wedding on Saturday; which led me to remember another dear friends' birthday on Sunday. Then I freaked out about studying and got out of bed.
What does this have to do with my blog? Well, not much on the surface. But I have been smiling all morning thinking of my friends.
It's time for me to make more time for things I love. It's okay to take a break from work and school to take care of me! So I'm going to get back to writing more often. I signed up for an interesting workout program which I will talk about here sometimes just to hold myself accountable. I'm going to commit to finalizing the things I need to get my teaching certificate. I'm going to spend time with my friends and family over the next few weeks celebrating marriages, and babies, and the arts, and music, and girls night out(s?). I'm ready to have some fun again.
(This brief message brought to you by the Euclidean Algorithm. Now back to my regularly scheduled studying freak out.)
