Things I would rather be doing...

I stole this from Angie, but I can't help but think about what I'd rather be doing than being at school (or writing my thesis):

- Still sleeping in bed (with the a/c on...my parents' house is always so hot)
- Reading the rest of the 3rd twilight book
- Sitting on the beach (or anywhere) with Ang talking about useless things
- Watching the new One Tree Hill
- Spending the entire day, guilt free, creating scrapbook cards
- Hanging out with my cute 9 month old niece
- Sitting on the couch watching SoapNet for the rest of the week.

I missed the memo that my 9 o'clock class was cancelled so I woke up 1.5 hours earlier than I needed to. Good morning world! Give me a break today, please.

A week in the life...

So in one of my classes today I was complaining to a classmate about how I hate Thursdays. This is my weekly Thursday schedule:

GPH210 9-10:15
GPH381 10:30-11:45
PSY497 12-1:15
PSY330 1:30-3:30
Lab meeting 4:30-5:30
Thesis meeting 5:30-6:30
Campaigners 7ish-9:30ish
Hang out at guys house 9:30ish - too late at night (I recognize that this isn't a necessary part of my day, but it is still my weekly schedule)

There's virtually no free time in all of that because I'm probably walking/driving from location to location. Anyway, point of this story, my classmate was saying how Thursdays do suck but then you have a "4-day weekend." Technically I don't have class until next Tuesday again, but I don't remember the last time I actually felt like I had a weekend (apart from my time in washington). It may seem like I'm feeling sorry for myself, but this is just how my life is...which may or may not be a good or bad thing, who knows. I enjoy it enough, probably more than enough. Today I already caught myself saying "I can't wait until summer." I just made a countdown widget...46 days and 13 hours until I'm done for the semester!

I think this semester and next will prove to be the most difficult of my college career. I'm currently making a study guide for probably my hardest test in college thus far and it's for a geography course. Ridiculous.

I started work FINALLY with a client! He's 4 and has autism and is fascinating and such a blast to hang out with! This week I get to meet with our behavioral director and my kiddo and plan goals for him that I get to start working on with him! Thus far, my job has been excellent. I start with another client soon too! Another 4 year old with multiple delays. I'm glad I am loving this job as much as I thought I would. It is an absolute perfect fit for me.

I got to go to Washington with Kevin over spring break, which was a much needed break. I miss the cooler weather so much. Stupid Arizona sun.

I'm busy busy busy and beginning to freak out with how much time I don't have...which leads to wasting time being stressed. Life is really really good. I can't remember ever being this consistently happy before in my life. Yay for that! Back to studying.

I want to be here....

blah blah blah...

That's all I hear in my stats class. You know class is rough when everyone is rushing to the vending machine or closest coffee shop to get caffeine before class. It's rough. However, I do feel intelligent when I teach myself how to do everything for the homework (...with plenty of help from Kevin. I can't take all the credit.) I get really stressed when I do math-ish homework because you enter all these figures into a formula and expect to come out with a certain number and when I don't I freak out. That is where Kevin comes in to save the day. It's nice to have someone who can simplify things into my range of math terminology/knowledge. I knew I was dating him for a reason.

Life has been full of school and a lot of sleep because I'm getting over the cold/sinus crap that seems to be going around. T-minus 3.5 days until Washington. It's going to be super super difficult to want to come back, but it'll still be a much needed break.
