Swamp Things

Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes GracefullyDarrin and I have beenΒ swampedΒ with work and homework lately, and I feel like my mind is covered in muck and my stress level is about to bubble over. It’s during weeks like these that I start to question my decision to accomplish graduate school and further my degree.

I know, I know. It’s all worth it in the end. But currently I’ve been feeling like a swamp thing coated in mud and grimed with all the negativity of academia. Tonight, Darebear and I will be showing some love to our losing NFL Minnesota Vikings team by sporting our jerseys to the game. The momentary distraction will be just what I need, and who wouldn’t love a date night with the best redhead in town?! Not I, said the swamp thing from beneath her heavy books of philosophy and obnoxious vocabulary.

So this is my quick hello and happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here and I’m going to make darn sure that it’s glorious and relaxing. I’ll be ready for you, Lazy Saturday Morning. Do your worst.

    have so much fun grace, and… i *definitely* relate to your graduate school rant (i had one every semester for 2 years). it’s true about it being worth it in the end, but don’t you want a phd? you’re in for quite the ride, ma dear πŸ™‚

    I am also SO ready for a lazy Saturday. Sounds amazing to just curl up on the couch and do barely anything.

    xo, Liz
