it's been a little quiet around here. I know.
but sometimes life just gets in the way and there's hardly enough time to sleep!
c'est la vie.
last week I had a bit of a breakdown. heh. sometimes life is just too much, you know? school and work were kind of taking over everything (or so I felt) and there was laundry to do and the apartment was messy and J & I never had time to just be in the same room for five minutes without having to work on this or return that call or run that errand or blah blah BLAH. sometimes I stretch myself too thin. I like to think that I can do it all, handle everything, and juggle a million things at once. and sometimes I can! sometimes I do it well. and sometimes (this time), it just wasn't happening. so last week, right in the middle of our chinese takeout dinner, I burst into tears. all over my orange chicken.
and then, everything was okay. sometimes a good cry is all you need. you know?
in more exciting news: next week, J & I are GRADUATING!!
it hasn't really sunk in yet. with how crazy these last weeks have been, it doesn't seem like one of those big "milestone" moments is about to happen. I guess that's always the way, though. they never seem real until they're happening, or until they're over. it seems like just yesterday I was graduating from high school, and suddenly, here I am putting on a cap and gown all over again. time really does fly. (all those people were right!)
he & I both have family coming into town this weekend which I am thrilled about. family time is just what I need to make me feel sane again. miraculously, we get to take a few days off (the same few days!) and escape our schedules for awhile. my mom will be in town (hooray!) and we have a handful of frivolous, girly things planned like wine tasting, a day at the spa, etc. a true girl's weekend indeed.
it'll probably be quiet around here for the next couple days, but stay tuned! exciting updates to come.
