i am...

trying to figure out how to finish my master's degree before I am 30. I like how that sounds. (I, however, do not like the sounds of 30 when associated with my age.) Unfortunately I am turning 28 this fall, which poses a challenge and potentially a lot of work and dedication.

not very good at letting go of hurt feelings. It doesn't matter if I even like the person or not. I still get hurt. Especially when it's intentional. I wish I could purge mean people from my awareness.

now clear that I don't really enjoy working as a general activity.

dying to watch Invictus. Luckily it comes out at RedBox today.

trying to get better about answering my phone and calling people back. I'm horrible at this. 

glad the Big 12 is staying together so that I can finally stop reading about it. I am quite disturbed though by the fact the Big 10 has 12 members and the Big 12 has 10 members. There should be a law against this irony.

in love with my husband. Amazed how our relationship grows as our faith grows.

really developing an annoyance for drama and unnecessarily high emotional responses. It makes me tired. I will use this as an excuse for why waking up to go run has been an insurmountable challenge this past week.

finding a lot of peace in reading the comments on this Mental Floss blog post.

missing my old job and friends but finally starting to develop a rhythm in Kansas City where I have people that greet me with a hug instead of a handshake.

  1. I'm with you on the "really developing an annoyance for drama and unnecessarily high emotional responses."...sad to say the annoyance any hieghtens as you age because some people just don't get it.

    And 30..pfftt...I miss 30!! But at least I can say with all honesty that life gets better (at least for me) as one ages.:O) I feel so much smarter, empowered, and level headed than I used to be!

    anyway...is online learning an option for you and obtaining your master's degree? I did mine in a 1 1/2 online. It was brutal but at 37 1/2 I wanted to be done before 40 (which I beat by one year).
