Speaking Of...

I've had so many random thoughts running through my head lately I thought I'd just throw them down into a blog smorgasbord. Here we go:

I neither hate nor like Valentine's Day. Bob and I try and tell each other "I Love You" fairly often, so we don't need V-Day's little reminder to show our love. I can put that reminder in my phone if I need it, thankyouverymuch. Another bummer? Bob's in court all day today and I have class until 7:30pm. Nothing says romance like a little DUI and cleft palate!

Speaking of cleft palate...

It's pretty pathetic how much I want this semester to be over. I love my externship but am ready to get paid for the hard work that I do (selfish, much?). Bob is also working 2 days a week at the Prosecutor's office without pay. We are only working 3 days COMBINED that we get paid for. So we're getting paid for 3 days work, but are both putting in at least 40 hours of work and school each week.

Grad School = Free Labor

I'm done providing free labor and sitting through 3-hour long lectures just so I can get a piece of paper that says "Priscilla really did pass all her classes and is fairly competent to be thrown into the real world."

I feel bad that I want these next few months to move as quickly as possible. I'd also like this summer to move quickly (Bob takes the Bar in July, and I'm not looking forward to having an absent husband all summer). Then again, I don't want this summer to move fast because I love Summer. In fact, if we could just time-warp to Summer 2013 I'd be the happiest girl alive. Summer 2013 will probably be the best Summer of my life. No school. No Bar. No tests. Full time job. Warm weather. Living above ground? I sure hope so.

Speaking of living above ground...

I'm sick of living in a basement cave. I don't have windows in my office at the school or at my paid job. I'm desperate for some warmth. I'm desperate for some Vitamin D. I'm desperate for Spring.

I hate winter. You'd think after 25 of them , I'd at least be used to them. Nope. I hate scraping frost off of my car every morning. I hate that I can't take Maggie for a nice walk in the park. I hate feeling cold all. the. time.

Maybe I'll apply to SLP positions in St. George. I am ready for a warmer winter!

Wow. This blog post is a downer. Sorry about that. Umm... something positive...something positive...

Maggie is the best dog ever. That's positive, right? Bob's pretty cool, too. I'm not sure of my current cool status, so I won't make an estimation.
