I should be so happy right now:
I found out today that I got straight As this quarter which means that my dad will pay for my next quarter and I have one ounce less debt to swim in after university. He even said that he’s proud of me…I feel like there must be a catch to the fact that I’ve managed to do something right.
It makes sense though. I spent a lot of time with my school work and immersed myself in the material and I deserve this. I love academia. It only gets better when I get to start taking classes for English/International Studies and not just general requirements.
I made really yummy oatmeal this morning and ran three miles in a really good time. I worked at dancenter north for the first time since I left for uni today and it was odd but also wonderful to have my classic starbucks dark roast and be surrounded by glittery nutcrackers.
I’m really stoked to go to Chicago Young Authors with Danny on Tuesday for the slam open mic. It’s been too long, and he might get on stage! Also we’re going to Gram’s cabin for Christmas— that place is the light of my life. I wish Libby was still alive.
I think I’m climbing out of my whole “six week break ew this sucks” rut or trying to convince myself that I am welp.
