Winter, Winter Go Away

I swear, someday I will live in a place where winter is a nice, mild season that starts and ends on schedule. Or maybe I'm just doomed to suffer through these long depressing months for all my life.

I hate winter. Well, no scratch that. I don't hate snow or cold weather really. I just hate how LONG it is and I hate bundling up and being cold and winter clothes and all that jazz. Just over one month until spring. Though, it still stays cold for a little bit after that so I doubt true spring will be here until April, the month of my birth.

At least school was cancelled today, that's one perk. Still though, now I'm just bored and trying to ward of unavoidable homework that I must get done.

For now I'll daydream about walking outside without tugging on boots or a heavy coat. The warm sun on my head and the pavement grass beneath by bare feet. Ahhh bliss.

Presidents Day

Happy Presidents Day to all! In honor of the long weekend (and because I'm lazy), I've done virtually no schoolwork for a few days and it's been glorious! Today was the first day I got to really sleep in in over two weeks. My dad, sisters and myself all had the day off so we went bowling. I'm not a good bowler at all but I still managed to come in second place for both of our games :). My dad was the obvious best!

Now I'm about to head out to babysit MFF. This week should be somewhat relaxed, I'm only working one day and one class is cancelled. Tomorrow my first story is being workshopped in my fiction class and I'm nervous. I didn't really love the finished product and I have a feeling that a few students might rip it to shreds. Oh well.

Why I've Been a Terrible Blogger

Because...

  1. As a new Creative Writing major, I've been having to write and read SO MUCH for school that I don't feel like doing much else. 
  2. I've been working three days a week.
  3. I've been working out three days a week, taking up about 2 hours of my day.
  4. I've been really tired. 
  5. Winter makes me feel blah
  6. That's all I got
I'm going to need to find a way to get into a good blogging groove even while being in school...on teh bright side. Check out my book page, this years list is growing fast!

This is a Good Thing

Well, February is upon us, my least favorite month. I'm going to be working a lot and I've realized that it's not easy to work part time and go to school. Not easy at all. I feel like I do have time to do my homework but I lack so much motivation after being at work for 8 hours and waking up at 5:30/6:00 every day.

I keep reminding myself, every morning when I hear my alarm go off and then subsequently as I'm walking into my department that this is a good thing. It's good I have this job, it's good that I'm able to work and it's good that I'm earning money. I just have to keep that positive attitude.

My job is such a blessing to me because I know it so well now and I'm really comfortable in it. That being said, it's still work. I never really want to go but I know I need to and knowing that I guess I want to after all! At any rate, I would guess that a lot of people feel this way about their jobs.

I promise to blog more this month, stay tuned!
