TGIF! Can I get an Amen?? I don't know about you all, but this week has been ruff. I've either worked or done school things every day of the week (well, I kinda got a free day Wednesday, but I'm not really counting that because I was still pretty productive) and I am pooped. I don't know what was different from fall break to winter break, but these first few weeks of school have hit me like a wrecking ball.
After a 9 mile trail ride at Swayback bridge. Nothing to do with this post whatsoever, but it's a pretty picture.
Not only do I have class once a week for EIGHT hours and then another eight hour clinical, but I work 2-3 12 hour shifts a week and then (on days like today) I get called in to my old job when they are swamped. So while I had a perfectly relaxing Friday full of Netflix, blog designing, and wearing stretchy pants planned, life was busy planning otherwise.
On the plus side, I'm wearing a maxi skirt so that's almost as awesome as stretchy pants.
Oh, and in addition to all of that craziness I mentioned above, I also have to fit in 84 hours of precepting in there somewhere. Also family time, studying, homework, and blogging. Something's got to give. Obviously I'm not going to put school (my last semester!) on the back burner, nor am I going to slack in my work, so that only leaves one thing. This lil ole blog of mine.
I have made the tough decision to stop accepting sponsors (if you're currently a sponsor, look for my email) and I will only be doing blog designsone at a time. Not five at a time like over the last two or three weeks. It is just too much for my brain to handle at one time. I am open, however to button swapping (I love a good button!) so if you're interested in that, please email me!
Obviously this is all very temporary, until after graduation and passing NCLEX (pray for me). Then I will have all the free time in the world for this blog, my design site, and piano lessons, which is something I've wanted to do for years and I've finally made the decision that I'm going to do it. Who cares if I'm almost 24. I want to play the piano dammit.
And now, because it's Friday, I'm going to leave you with some of my favorites for the week:
Favorite Blog Posts
Writing for Fun by Whitney from I Wore Yoga Pants to Work. Although I didn't agree with every single aspect of her post, homegirl had some good points to make. If you haven't read it yet, get your azz over there and do so this instant!
Euphoric Happiness and 11 Causes, by Brooks at The Handey Way. I absolutely loved this post, I've had the idea sort of floating around in my brain for a little while and the way Brooks put it in to words was amazing. It's a reminder to stop and look around at all of the beautiful things life has to offer. (PS Brooks, can I steal this idea??)
Thoughts on Making it Official, by Lisa at Two Martinis. Being one of those couples who have talked about marriage a lot but aren't actually engaged, I really enjoyed reading this post from Lisa. Her reasons for getting married were awesome (just like her) and it makes me even more excited for my (eventual) marriage.
This kid is seriously the cutest thing. Ever. In the history of ever. Don't argue with me. And his piano skills. I can't even. I wonder if I will ever be that good.
As is the Friday tradition, I am linking up with Whitney to back my azz up into the weekend.
