This past week was my last first week of graduate school (barring anything tragic, anyway). I’m slightly more excited for this semester than I have been in a long time and I’m guessing that’s because the end is finally in sight. The past year (2013) was certainly a challenge. Some things in my personal life were less than fun and I truly did not want to be in graduate school. It clearly showed in my grades and lack of enthusiasm. Yet, I think I’m getting a miraculous little burst of energy to get me over the finish line.
One thing I did decide to do, at least temporarily, is close down my facebook account. I do this periodically when I notice I’m checking facebook without realizing it. Seriously. I’ll be planning on texting someone or logged online to research something and somehow my fingers have typed in “facebook.com” (or just typed the letter ‘F’ into the address bar and facebook automatically appears) or clicked the app without intending to. Usually I’m about five statuses/pictures in before I’ve realized what I’ve done. It also hinders my studying a surprising amount, just because it interrupts what I’m in the middle of doing. No, I’m not saying I’m never getting on facebook again or that my account is closed, but I need to take a break for a few months. HOWEVER, because I don’t want to be left out of activities and fun group things, I’ll still check it at least once a week just so I can see what’s going on.
Besides, I’m not giving up Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and this brand new blog. Pfft! Please!
On another note, you may have noticed my past post with my top ten books. I’ve decided that, while I’m still trying to get into the habit of posting regularly, I’m going to try to make a ‘Top Ten’ list every week. I’ve always really enjoyed lists and I think it would be a fun addition to this blog and something I would maybe like to keep for the future.
Sooo… what’s going on in my life? I guess that should really be what I’m posting about if I’m treating this like a journal…
The Boyfriend left again for Atlanta today to work on a new project. I think I’ve finally come to terms with him leaving and showing up abruptly. As someone that likes planning, it was certainly something I had to adapt to. I was very glad he was here this weekend, though, because I had a small emergency with my dog and he did a terrific job at keeping me calm and driving the pup and me to the 24 hour emergency vet at 2:00 in the morning. (No worries, the little girl is doing much better.)
Anyway, I would hope for something more notable to happen so this blog would be more interesting, but to be honest I would like for everything to be boring. I have homework to do.
