And with that, it is the last day of September! This month was definitely a change from the summer months and it seemed to be a lot longer. I’d look to see how many more days we had left and still I’d find another week to get through. It’s just that “first month” of a new school year that got to me, I guess. Looking ahead now to October, I see some pretty packed weekends and even midterms at the end of the month! I want this time to go by fast, but not so fast I don’t have time to keep grounding myself! (Did you know there are 85 days till Christmas!?)
It’s funny that I already feel a change in my blogging feeling from the summer. Writing up blogs posts feels so easy and nice now. A break from the “stress work” of classes and studying. I can easily pump out a blog post and editing photos in about 2 hours now and not feel drained. A nice outlet, I guess! (That haunting 10-page research paper we’re just starting and the “over-my-head” info of chemistry is not what I’d call energizing!)
So I’m off for more work, writing, studying (chemistry). That’s my biggest hurdle right now. Chem. It came SO easy to me in high school and now…complete gibberish. This weekend calls for a major study session to get this past month of lessons down! I hope you have a much more enjoyable time reading through the Friday Finisher! I do hope to take a break this weekend and finally do something I love…COOKING! See you back here Monday!
