babysitting

I feel as though it has been forever since I last blogged! (When in reality it has only been a month) Ever since Spring Break I feel like I have been in hyper-drive trying to get everything done early so I am not stressed out with all my big projects right around exam time!

Over Spring Break I went to Pensacola, Florida which was a lot of fun, and definitely a much needed and appreciated vacation! I had a lot of fun, but once Spring Break was over it was back to reality of classes, school work, working at Orange Leaf and babysitting! Not much has happened other than staying busy. Last week was Spirit Week and because of work and babysitting I didn’t get to participate as much as I would have liked to, but I did get to go to the Cardinals game which is always a lot of fun with the Fontbonne group! Everyone who went to the dance said they had a great time, and the pictures made it look like a lot of fun! Hopefully next year I will be able to do more with Spirit week! Well, time for me to get back to all that studying and projects!

Hi all!

This weekend’s post is being brought to you by late-night weekend babysitting. As a busy graduate student, finding time for a part-time job is limited. Between classes and clinic, my availability to work is nonexistent. However, I tend to spend money on brain food, coffee when I find myself camping out in Starbucks for an entire day, and I won’t lie… the occasional pedicure for stress relief. Babysitting is the perfect little gig to fund those needs for survival. It’s funny to think that someday relatively soon I will actually get paid during my actual 9-5 day, doing what I love to do. Believe it or not, I lose sight of that thought sometimes. I get so caught up in the moment that I forget about what my life will be like long-term when I’m out in the “real world.” It’s crazy to consider how different my future would look if I wasn’t at Fontbonne right now. Yeah, life is a little hectic at the moment, but it’s worth it. Finding a job in this day and age is difficult enough—finding one that you are head over heels in love with is another story. Somehow I’ve managed to get myself on a pretty decent track! First thing first: making it through this crazy semester…
