Since I've visited, I am now:
Graduated from University
Working Full Time
Riding the bus about 3.5 - 4 hours/day (to get to work and home from work)
Helping to pay for my husband's school...
Excited for my brother who will be graduating at the end of this semester
Excited for another brother who has a girlfriend
Trying to learn how to speak Cantonese
I've also had the best day and the worst day of my life.
Best day: Marriage. June 30.
Worst day: Birthday. August 9. I accidentally deleted my journal (I was keeping it in a word document) and erased it from my computer. I tried a lot of ways to recover. It's just not happening.
The good part: I had a copy until February.
The bad part: Most of the really good stuff is lost. Like student teaching days, graduation, entries about my awesome fiance/husband, wedding, honeymoon, the excitement of getting a job, my thoughts about my class.
I don't really even know how many times I have cried over it.
But I want to say, my husband has been really supportive through that.
It took me about two months to start writing in my journal again. Maybe more. And it still kind of hurts sometimes. But I'm finally not obsessing about it in my thoughts anymore.
I just had fall break from school. That's been nice. 6 school days off. I start again tomorrow. It kind of stinks, but I've enjoyed it. Just relaxing, and doing lots of good things.
Life is a nightmare. Life is a perfect dream. Life is everything in between.
(No, that was not meant to sound cheesy. It really was true.)
