Slightly Overwhelmed

When did my life get so overwhelming?  I feel like I am so busy with work and school and what little free time I have left is spent on wedding stuff.  I don't have time to do a lot of the things I really enjoy doing.  Like blogging, or reading, or sending emails to bffs.  So right now I'm making time.  I have about 10 other things I should be doing right now, but they can wait.  It will all still be there after I do a blog post and send an email or two.

So, what's been going on in my life you might be wondering....

I just completed the most difficult task in school that I have ever been given.  I understood that grad school would be a challenge, but I didn't actually process that until this term.  So far it has kept me very busy and I have done a whole lot of writing, but that's to be expected.  And then I had to take Governmental Budgets & Financial Management.  Major stress involved, but I made it through with a B and I couldn't be happier. I have one more final to take and then a week off before classes start again.  Only four classes left for my masters and one on top of that for a certificate.  So by the end of the year I will have a masters in Public Administration and a graduate certificate in Government Contracting.  Not too shabby for the ripe old age of 25 (I'm not 25 yet, but will be by the time this is over)

John is in a wedding today, so this week has been full of wedding festivities.  And I must admit, I have had a lot of fun.  Wednesday night was the bachelorette party and most of Thursday was spent paying for the night before.  But it also involved the spa and naps and the rehearsal dinner.  The bride gave me a goody bag with lots of fun stuff and a piece of paper saying that Mockingjay had been preordered for me.  I am SO excited!  And today is the wedding.  I'm in charge of making sure John doesn't destroy his white shirt somehow before the ceremony.  If you knew John, you would understand that this is no easy task.

That's all I have for now.  Happy Friday all!


  1. It seems like we are all so busy that blogging and reading and doing the things WE love are taking the back seat to what needs to be done.
    I hate that it seems like forever since I've visited your blog. Just know that I totes understand how hard it is to do life and the things you love. Finding that balance seems impossible but I try every day... today that balance brought me to you.


  2. Life is overwhelming. I hope things calm down for you because I miss you around the blog/twitter world! <3
