I wanted to start this blog as a way to write down my happenings. Guess not much has happened, or maybe too much…. never really sure.
For sure, too much is on my mind as of late. My mind and heart are torn in so many directions….to elaborate-
Nick and I just got back from San Francisco. I worked SO hard to get everything done before we left, since I was missing TWO days of class/labs. So many people I know choose not to go to class or can easily skip a class here and there. I feel so guilty whenever I do it, and to have had to worked THAT hard just to be able to have a nice time away from school? Holy crap.
We went to his cousin’s wedding. It was GORGEOUS. She is so pretty and the venue and everything was just perfect. So nice to see that happy time in someone’s life, see Nick’s family (and finally meet the rest of them), and to GTFO of Houghton. And we also saw the famous Lombard Street. As civil engineers, we appreciate this immensely, and next time we’ll just have to drive down it.
As for everything else… school is piling up, as per usual. It’s a never-ending cycle of homework and reports. With 5 classes that each have homework assignments at least bi-weekly, three labs with reports/assignments, and not to mention all the midterms happening within the past three weeks… it’s hectic. But I’m over halfway to the end of this semester. Hoo RAH.
Family life is really hard right now. My 96-year-old great-grandma is not doing the greatest, and it’s stressing out my grandma, her daughter. Which is in turn worrying my mom and is the reason my mom spontaneously went down to Florida to visit her. Then there’s my dad’s mom… she’s near 70 and has been through so much, physically. It’s to the point where she doesn’t want to fight anymore, and I don’t blame her. My dad has visited Michigan twice in the past three months to see her, and he’s coming again in about four weeks. I hate that I’m 550+ miles away from home and I can’t get there so easily… it sucks feeling helpless.
To be honest, I’m done with Houghton. Done with school. So want to get a job
and a puppy. April 28th, you can’t come fast enough!!!!
Okay, I’m done rambling and being lame. I need to finish the contents for my lab letter so I can write it tomorrow. And take a gander at this Workshop due Friday…
(On a positive note - YAY for October warm weather, no snow yet, and some pretty leaves outside my window to stare at. <3)
