Did I mention that I am in grad school?

This is how I feel right now:

This weekend is going to be one big homeworky blur. Luckily, once that is all taken care of, it will be THANKSGIVING BREAK! BYU doesn't have a Spring break or a Fall break, so this little vacation feels long overdue. Of course, we come back to our last few days of classes and then it is finals, but this will still be a nice break.

In other news, I went back to spin yesterday and I got back in the pool after more than 2 weeks out of the water. Spin and a recently sprained ankle are maybe not the smartest idea, but it felt so good to be back on the bike. I took it easy, but I will prolly be sure to take more time off should I ever sprain my ankle again. Sadly, I am pretty sure it is doomed to happen. Swim was awesome. I made up my own workout because the class was working on dolphin kicking with flippers. Yeah, at least I am smart enough to avoid the flippers. But honestly it was so nice to do something active again!

I wrapped up my day with a couple of hours of work. We held an info session for prospective students who are interested in the MPA program. I love recruiting. I am so lucky to have this job. I really enjoy getting up in front of people, sharing my experiences, and then helping them to figure out how to best achieve their goals. Now I just need to figure out how to put all of that into a long-term career when I graduate in April. Yikes! Speaking of graduating... back to the books!

What do you do to stay sane when you are injured?

Thankful thought for the day:

I am thankful for school. Even though it causes me a lot of stress, I have become a better person over the last year. I owe so much of that to the challenges I have overcome in grad school and to all of the incredible people who have helped me make it through.

  1. I just put my grad work on hold because of an upcoming deployment. But I totally know what you mean about how much work it is! Good luck. To stay sane when I'm injured, I cross train - pool or bike!
