Hi guys! Happy Friday! It’s spring, the world is waking up, and everything seems to be snapping into motion. I’ve started school again and this quarter is already so much better than last quarter, by leaps and bounds. And I’m so excited! Today is Jeremy’s birthday, and today we’re heading out for a long weekend in . . . PORTLAND!!! Squee! One of my very favorite cities with one of my very favorite people, it’s going to be a blast!
Otherwise, of course I’ll be recapping the whole trip here on the blog, in the next few weeks. It’s going to be delicious!
And now, a quick and dirty Love List to kick off the weekend right! I’ll share mine, and I hope you’ll share some of yours. Drop your love in the comments below!
Number one, no doubt, is TEACHING! My biggest fear is public speaking, and this quarter I’ve had to meet it head on, because I am TAing. It was scary and horrible and stressful and sort of unbelievable (wait, you’re letting ME teach college biology? who in their right might approved that??!) (because I suffer from Impostor Syndrome, for reals, it’s a thing and I have it). But I did it, and actually, I did pretty good. And actually, it was pretty fun. And now, I think I might end up actually being a sort of awesome teacher. What?! // PORTLAND!!! Can’t wait, so excited, so many friends to see and so many things to eat. // The airline miles that made Portland a possibility at all, because otherwise there would have been no way. Very thankful for those! // Lazy nights on the couch with Jeremy. // Also, rallying for date nights out with Jeremy, those sure are good too. // So guys, I got a shout-out on Thursday’s episode of my all-time favorite podcast, Citizen Radio. No biggie. No big deal. Here at 45:23 (OMG!!!!!1) (DYING!!) (MADE MY YEAR!!!) // Cocktails and girl talk on a mom’s night out. // Long mellow mornings with Waits, without feeling rushed. So precious. // Vintage Pyrex, droooool! // Awesome opportunities from the most unexpected of places. // The class I’m taking on Science Writing, and the chills it gives me. Oh, my dream is crystalizing, and it is GOOD!
Alright, now it’s your turn! I hope you’ll leave your own little Love List in the comments below. I’d love to hear what’s making you smile these days!
