Quote of the Week

Love yourself, accept yourself, forgive yourself and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.

I'm alive. I'm surviving the week. I'm doing well.
The first week is always the hardest. I've been waking up at 6:15 for my internship, staying there till 4, and coming home and reading. And by the time I am done with dinner I am ready for bed. I must tell you, it's been a challenge to stay up as late as I have, and I haven't stayed up past like, 9:45 all week. I thought I was an old lady before, but now I really am. I think I have a good excuse though. The good news is, I love my internship! And classes are going well. (Thursdays and Fridays I have all of my classes because they require us to have 3 full days a week of our internship). Its a demanding schedule, but I think it will be well worth it! It's only for two years, right?

Quote of the Week

"There’s a whole army of women out there who just don’t have the time, the energy nor the DNA to be fabulous 24 hours a day. And that’s where I dwell. I talk for all those single women out there who just aren’t interested anymore in dolling themselves up for four hours in the hope of meeting Mr. All Right as the lights go up at 4 o’clock in the morning in some ridiculously expensive nightclub. I have better things to do. Like sit on the couch in my pajamas, watching bad TV and eating those big, cheesy snacks."
Tina Fey

So August kinda flew by, huh?
It was a very difficult month for me, so my apologies for not posting, like, at all, the past couple of weeks. I just haven't had the mental capacity to think about ideas for posts besides my quotes of the week.
I'd say things are about to get better, but...
it's about to get really crazy around here.

Tomorrow is my first day of classes.
Monday is my first day of field placement.
I am SO excited, but so much so that I haven't been sleeping well (hence the difficult month I've had).
My life is about to completely change and I think my body is reacting in the only way it knows it will truly get to me.
The good thing about it is that its forcing me to take much better care of myself than usual.
I am sure that once the scary first days are over and I settle into a routine that I will be feeling much better. But then I am not sure I will have much time for posting. Or you never know, I might post more, because this blog has proved to be an excellent procrastination tool.

I had orientation last week, and I learned a lot about the program and I think it's going to be really great. I definitely made the right choice by picking NYU. It's in my favorite part of the city, and I am so happy I can actually go there. Walking around, it occurred to me, that even though I am going to be so busy, I am going to have a great time. And my placement is only ten minutes from home, which is more than I can say for a lot of the other students I met at orientation!
So even though I have to travel to the city two days a week for classes, at least the other three I only have a quick drive.
I'm a lucky girl.

Anyway, right now I should actually be doing homework (eeeek!) so I just wanted to drop in and tell you what's going on.
Or I guess to tell you I don't really know what's going on?

The higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.
