Stuff from Stephers

I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

Crash, boom!

Crash boom is what I'm afraid is going to happen in the next couple months. I've been sitting here a lot lately thinking about the fact that next Thursday I start the fall semester. My FINAL semester of grad school. First thought - I still have a 4.0 GPA but I think I'm probably taking one of the hardest classes this time around. They added a weed-out course a couple semesters ago and this is where I could fit it in. Ha. Hope it doesn't weed me out. The instructor just emailed us all this stuff and there's 2 grading charts...scary. So, my first fear is this "reading intensive" course that everyone freaks out about. If I were Catholic I'd do some Hail Mary's for this one. On top of that, I've added a second internship. If you thought my schedule was crazy with just (ha, I said "just") class, one internship and the Gap try it now. Whew. I'm doing a group Wednesday nights and leading a grief group at a high school along with a couple new individual clients. Oh, and that whole part where I have to find a job before I graduate. And study for (they say you just have to memorize this encyclopedia - no sweat right?) AND take the test that allows me to work under supervision for a year and a half after graduation at almost no pay. And every one's birthdays (mine, my sisters, boyfriends and a best friends to name a few) seem to be in the fall making it even busier, along with a wedding, Halloween, Homecoming (I planned it so I have to go), Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, and then Christmas. I feel like I'm leaving something out. My mom is starting chemo and even though that isn't something that is taking up my time, it's something I worry about. Yes, she reads this, but I'm sure she already knew I worried (I worried so much as a kid that I got constipated into my small intestines so I'm SURE she knows I worry, but if not, now she (you) know). I know I just have to get over this initial freak out, but if you've thought I was busy and distant before you'll really think I am now. For now, I'll try to hang out, but I need to study and work. Just know that in December after I graduate I might be poor but I want to hang out. And you better plan on coming to my graduation party!!
