I have a few remaining reading assignments to blog about and I am done with year one of graduate school. And man, it feel so good.
Last night, instead of looking at a stack of books and papers and my laptop, I actually:
1. Cooked my favorite comfort food
2. Did laundry
3. Started sorting my desk--which looks like a library threw up on it
4. Sorted recyclables
5. Started reading for pleasure! "The Farming of Bones" by Edwidge Danticat.
For the first time in 11 months, I felt "ama de casa"-ish, which is a way of saying house-wife-ey. As in, I walked into my home and saw it with fresh eyes and I actually had the desire to make it homey.
Grad school has definitely consumed me for the past year. Taking the summer off is sort of like...holy moly....wow....free time......
It feels good.
