Happy New Year! I can’t believe we’re already in 2017, time flies so fast. I am currently in recovery from my first semester of grad school. And I need a vacation from the vacation I just came back on. Seriously. While I did get to see some of my loved ones, the break was definitely NOT long enough and I start school again in a little over a week.
This was definitely the most bumpy ride I have ever had while on a plane and I was more than a little nervous. The thing that was bad about this ride aside from the weather, was that it was happening while on a really small aircraft because I was flying to a regional airport.
My dog-child was so happy to see me and I was just as happy to see her. I was really sad to leave her, but when I finish this program the plan go back to Texas and bring her home. I just don’t have the time for her while in the program because of the workload.
This was the first time taking Ruby to go see Santa and she handled it pretty well. She was definitely looking at me like, “Who is this man mama?” Thankfully she stayed still long enough for this gem of a photo 🙂
While this is definitely not an update, thanks for keeping up with me! When I started grad school I had no idea what to expect. This past semester I found myself overwhelmed, exhausted, frustrated, among many other emotions. I also learn a lot in the process so those growing pains were most definitely worth it. Going into the second semester I have a much better idea of what to expect and will adjust accordingly.
This is actually the first year I am going into without any clear goals. I think I am going to take a different approach on that so more on that later.
What new years goals have you made for yourself for 2017?
