As of today, May 1st, 2013,I am standing at the base of a mountain of change. There has just been so much “new” in the last few weeks and there is even more to come. Here’s the quick rundown: I became a vegan. I resigned from my job. (My last day will be May 10th.) I registered for my final summer classes; the last step to completing my long awaited B.S. is Psychology and Counseling. I am graduating this summer! I’m starting an internship at Safe House of Hope in just two weeks. And…we have officially planned our trip to Barbados! This is something that we have wanted to do since we first went there for our honeymoon almost four years ago.
I’m looking forward to all of these things, but truth be told, I feel completely exhausted from school and work and not really quite prepared navigate it all. Well, except for Barbados. I think I can handle that. For 12 glorious days.
Out of all of the changes, I’m most anticipating how leaving my job will free up my schedule do more of the homemaking stuff that I’ve missed so much. Working full time AND going to school full time makes it very difficult to do normal things like cook dinner, clean, go grocery shopping, or get to bed before midnight. Not to mention the fact that my brain feels like it’s fried.
The point is, I feel like I’m gonna have the chance to be me again, instead of the zombie that’s been wearing my skin for the last year.
I can’t wait ;- )
