It is literally the third Friday in November.
Another week has come and gone. We are six days away from Thanksgiving. One week away from Black Friday. Two Fridays away from the first day of December. And all I can think is.. HOW.
I swear, these weeks keep going by faster and faster. While they may seem to drag for me most of the time, I always get to Friday and I think to myself, *whoa can my life slow down?*
I feel as if I am totally not ready to turn 25 in just short of 7 weeks. I feel as if I am totally not ready to graduate with a Master’s Degree in just about a month. I feel as if I am still a junior in high school anticipating graduating and moving off to college and starting my life. But then, another Friday rolls around and I realize that life is moving faster than I can even handle.
Last night, I was inducted into the Alpha Alpha Beta chapter of the Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education. If you know me, you know that there is nothing I hate more than “bragging” about myself and my accomplishments. However, at almost-25, I am finally shouting from the rooftops that I am so damn proud of myself. I am about to graduate with a Master’s Degree and a 3.9 GPA. All while balancing this crazy life going on around me. So much has changed this year, for better and for worse, and I really don’t know how I pulled this one off.
This Friday feels good. And I thank God for getting me here. xoxo.

Today was one of those Friday’s that made me thank God for the weekend. This week felt so long, and today felt like a new week in it of itself.
I came home from work + after school with a killer migraine. So, homework is a no. A decent blog post is a no. Laying in bed in a pitch black room is a definite yes. Cheers to the freakin’ weekend. Let’s thank God that tomorrow is a new day. xoxo.
Did anyone else’s week completely drag so far that they feel like they have completed an entire year? No? Just me? Well, alrighty then.
This week, while exciting, lasted forever. I don’t know if it was my lack of sleep from this weekend and roadtripping or being overwhelmed by school and new job things, but let me tell you, I am absolutely ecstatic that today is Friday and tomorrow I get a break.
So many good things have happened between Sunday and now; my brother’s team won states, I started my new job, I passed my certifications, etc. etc. I won’t bore you with the details. But I also cannot shake this exponential tired feeling. I have fallen asleep so early that I am wondering how it is even remotely possible that I even have one ounce of exhaustion left in me.
Hopefully, I can catch up on some relaxation tomorrow. All I really have going for me is getting an oil change in my car. And figuring out whether or not I want to chop all my hair off *like the pics below*. [SIDENOTE: What do you think?? Should I do it??]
I hope your Friday and your weekend is filled with good times, good music, good food, and good moods. Now, time to relax. xoxo.
