Yesterday I completed my first full year of graduate school.
That’s the craziest thing. But it’s true. I turned in my final paper and a book back to my professor and returned my library books and just like that…finito.
didn’t hasn’t settled in yet. I immediately went and bought some of my books for the intersession/summer class that starts Monday. Most were at Half Price Books, some I’ll have to get from Half dot com.
Lynn and I treated ourselves to lunch and a viewing of the Hunger Games movie then I drove directly to work for a few hours. Today is a HUGE day, colors, cuts, even a perm in there. It’s a long long one, but that’s ok. I’ll take it. I’ll need the money to pay for whatever repairs my air conditioner and dishwasher are going to require today.
Last night when I got home the house was just soo hot. It stresses me out. Then I went to fix a sandwich and the fridge wasn’t cool…I was immediately freaked. FREAKED. But I must have just left the door open a little because this morning it’s all good. Fine and dandy. I may go ahead and throw out the cheese and milk, but everything else is all good. However, it was almost more than I could handle last night. I medicated, then cooled down with a cold shower and went to bed wet. It’s a great trick I learned from Kizz. My windows were open, and fan was going and I read on my Nook for an hour…I got to read on my Nook! It was bliss.
My next class begins Monday. It’s online, so no going to campus every day. The Beat Movement. I think I’ll like it. The Proff is another one who’s reputation precedes him as just being awesome, so I’m looking forward to it.
I bartend weddings tomorrow night and Saturday night. I’ve got two plane tickets to pay for on top of these repairs, so I’m not going to complain. I’m just not. I’m blessed to have it.
You wanna know what I don’t have? Coffee. I’m drinking the last cup of yesterdays pot…you would think that it would motivate me to get showered and get to starbucks…yet here I sit. The morning breeze is perfect. I’ve got awhile before I have to get up and get to work. I think I’ll just enjoy it.
