Back to School

Filed under: Uncategorized — oneplainjane @ 3:56 pm

Yup…. Yesterday was my first day back in school for this semester. YES. I am 28 years old and still working toward my bachelors degree. Pretty sad…

I found out that I only really have 6 classes left and then I CAN GRADUATE!!! FINALLY!!! So, I am cramming 3 classes into my schedule so I can JUST BE DONE WITH THIS ALREADY!!!

I am going to be a stressed out mess until mid-December.

I should now apologize to EVERYONE that knows me. I will either totally ignore you, or I will be a wreck anytime you come into contact with me.

Your 25th birthday

To A Husband

This is to the crown and blessing of my life,
The much loved husband of a happy wife;
To him whose constant passion found the art
To win a stubborn and ungrateful heart,
And to the world by tenderest proof discovers
They err, who say that husbands can’t be lovers…

– Anne Kingsmill Finch

Happy Birthday my love!

Things I am tired of in blogs:

Staircase Drawers

This was really an interesting concept the first 50 gazillion times I’ve seen it in a blog. It just KEEPS COMING BACK!!! UGH!

2) Amy Butler

I do not understand why people think she is the end all be all. Her stuff is just like everyone elses. And in my opinion… not very cute anyway. She not the next best thing since slice bread.

3) Runaway clock

Yes… Yes… we all know of your problem getting up in the morning. I don’t want to see this clock EVER AGAIN.

4) Ratatouille

Yes, I know a movie came out that featured this dish. But please… Does EVERYONE now have to make it?

5)”I heart”

Please.. Please…. Just say you love something, or that you adore it.

Here is a thesaurus

“I heart”

Here are some things to make you not hate me so much right now.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
—Mark Twain

I feel like I have always had the travel bug. I LOVE to go to interesting places and see all the things that I have read about in books. I am one of those crazy people who listen captively to docents at historical sites and stare upward and gawk at architecture in the middle of the sidewalk in a busy city.

Maybe I am feeling a little caged due to finances and obligations, but I am longing for a ramble in a glamorously foreign place. I find myself thinking about diverse locations and thinking of all that I would want to see and experience.

Then comes the reality of one income, 2 students, and I have to push that fancy to “2 years from know”, “maybe when I graduate”, “DEFINITELY before kids”, etc. I don’t want to turn into that person who looks back later at all that I could have done and didn’t. I want to get out there and see things!

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
–St. Augustine
