Hi there. I know, it's been a while. But that is simply because life is insanely busy and school has taken over. To the extent that it's odd for me to go a week without having to suffer through an exam. What the heck, grad school? But we are surviving! Zach has been super supportive and fantastic the whole time. This past weekend we were able to head down to Tampa for a night to be with my family for my sister, Lucy's engagement party. It was a lot of fun. We had a great time talking with everyone and just being around my family. I didn't take one picture though. It's gotten to the point where I feel weird carrying my camera around. I am officially (well and Zach) the last person on earth without an Iphone. I know, not really, but that's how it seems. People at school look at my phone like, "What is that thing?" Poor little phone. Ohwellll!
Fun story---this past Friday I had to take an Anatomy exam that I was insanely nervous about because it pretty much decides whether or not I have to retake the whole class. That morning, I showed up to the exam 45 MINUTES late. The professor looked at me like, "What a newb, why are you so late?" I almost broke down right there in front of the whole class. I was shaking like crazy and really thought I was just having a super realistic nightmare. But no, it was happening. Instead of having two wonderful hours to complete this super important test, I was going to have about an hour. I sat down to take the test and my hands were shaking sooo badly, I could barely bubble in the scantron, let alone remember ALL of that information I had learned. I totally lost all of my mnemonic devices, I could barely remember the most basic things. I wanted to crawl into a hole and die. But there was no hole, so I didn't. I finished the exam before the time was up. I was so convinced I had failed I actually left three minutes early. I later found out, that by some amazing act of God I did not fail. I will have to do quite well on the next two tests, but there's still a chance I won't have to retake the class. yippeeeee
On to happier times. . . .even though we are quite busy we decided it would be in our best interest if we added a member to our family. And heck no, I am not pregnant. Not yet.
I know, super cute. And he's all soft and fluffy and doesn't smell like death (no offense Chee-chee-mon).
The goal of this blog post was to let you know that I am still surviving through grad school and that we got a kitten.
Miss you and love you!
Keep me in your prayers.
My stress levels are way too high.
