I assume it’s obvious that I haven’t been writing much lately. It’s been difficult to balance getting ready for grad school, moving across the country, working, volunteering, mentoring, spending time with friends and family, and ALSO being a real person.
(I could really benefit from some therapy right about now, but where is the time? There is no time, nor is there funds, so looks like I’m writing a blog post!)
I have spent 3 of my past 4 off weeks in Illinois, which means the majority of my people in Illinois are happy with me, but my people in Missouri think they’ll never see me again. I have come to the realization that it is impossible to make everyone happy – something I’ve always known, but hoped I could be the one to actually do it….I can’t. I will still try, but I’m not going to be too hard on myself as it’s just going to get harder from here, and I am doing the best I can.
ANYWAYS. Remember that episode of Spongebob, when he becomes a waiter? And the little Spongebobs in his brain got rid of everything that wasn’t breathing and fine dining? That’s currently my brain, except instead of fine dining, it’s Avengers: Endgame.
I will be seeing it tonight at 11:55 (at the Alamo, of course) and it’s one of the only things I have been able to really think about lately.
My brain is just images of all of my loved ones (the cast of the Avengers) trying to save all of us from the “obese raisin” that is Thanos. (I didn’t come up with “obese raisin,” someone on the internet did, but man I wish I had).
Am I emotionally prepared for this movie? Absolutely not. We all know I’m going to cry for the entire 3 hours.
But am I physically ready? Yes. I have my Captain America shirt that says “my boyfriend is a superhero” on, and I’m only having a smoothie for breakfast, and not eating the rest of the day until I get to the Alamo so I can enjoy the Endgame themed menu items!!
As far as other super important things in my life..I took a break from The West Wing. After Leo had a heart attack alone in the woods, I had to stop for a bit. So now I’m working through Dawson’s Creek, and at the rate I’m going I’ll be done next week. Quick question: why is it Dawson’s creek??? He’s the worst. Sorry James Van Der Beek…except I’m not. Team Pacey forever.
I got a new Bible, and I’m obsessed with it. It’s the Christian Standard She Reads Truth Bible. It has a coral hardback, and is filled with devos, reading plans, pretty quotes, maps, timelines, AND it has wider margins for journaling!! I love it, and I’m so excited.
I think that’s about it! I will try to write more frequently.
