First, I would like to say that my region is already in the deep freeze. We are hitting -30 degrees with wind chill and -18 without. It is mighty cold. I am not ready for this! If I am still living in the tundra in 5+ years, someone please come talk me out of it! This weather really has me contemplating about moving south. I think that will be later in my life. We shall see what comes my way.
Onto grad school talk. I am all registered for classes and have already ordered the textbooks. Now I just have to pay the bill and wait for the classes to start. I am sort of excited to start. I do miss studying and learning new things. Additionally, I don’t feel challenged right now, so I am excited to start using more of my brain! I am not so much excited for the paying tuition thing, but it’s what has to be done for my higher dream to be fulfilled. Even if it means living on hardly any money, I am bound and determined to get where I want/need to be.
In other news, the holiday season is here. I always love this time of year. Getting together with friends and family. Catching up on everyone’s lives. The one thing I hate about this season is greed. I cannot stand seeing kids crying because they didn’t get a present that they wanted, or kids listing out a million item list of things they want when they are asked about what they want for Christmas. Do you really need that many things? Will they really bring you happiness? No. I don’t have kids right now, but I promise to myself that they will learn young that Christmas is about the giving and not receiving.
Well, that’s about all that is on my mind right now. I think I have you all caught up on things. If I don’t post again until after the holidays, I wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season!
