what's up?

Do you guys remember this song?

Mm, 90's baby. Anyways, what's up? I've been having a busy couple of weeks and, frankly, cannot believe we're almost halfway through November. I feel like time is pulling pranks on me because suddenly I'm having to wear socks to bed and there are Christmas decorations everywhere. What happened to September? Wasn't I just anticipating fall?

Other than graduate applications and what feels like mountains of work, I haven't been doing too much personally; lame, but the truth. Not much is new. Sylvie's bigger, Henrik's mom is coming for Thanksgiving, and on Tuesday Barack Obama was elected president again (woo!). Aside from that, life is pretty much the same.

Am I the only one who feels like I'm constantly running? I'm sure I'm not, but I don't know how you all balance life and work so gracefully! Teach me your ways. :P While I try to figure out that tenuous balance, here are some pictures of what's been up with me.

Henrik's birthday!

spirit week at school - 80's day
for halloween, all of us teachers dressed up as greek gods; I was Circe

was in a writing workshop last weekend
watched Obama win again!
hung out with my dumb-dumb cat, who likes q-tips if you noticed

And though it's not pictured, I bought a new laptop! Macbook Pro, I feel so fancy. ;)

These are my adventures so far. Today, I'll be studying; next weekend, I'll be cleaning. Weekend after that, I should be sending out applications. Everything's coming so fast. :(


  1. Awww, these are all such fun photos! My only advice is to take it a day at a time...when I get really stressed I try and just focus on the day ahead, it seems to make it easier :)
