Life Lately

I’m sorry my posts are just updates on my life lately, but life’s been so busy lately that I don’t have much more to talk about.  During the week, I do little more than go to my fieldwork, go to my music class, do homework, maybe hang out with friends for a little bit, and maybe surf the internet or read for a bit.  I haven’t been running even close to as much as I was hoping to.  I have decided to do a 5k instead of the 10k because I just haven’t had the time to train that I had hoped for.  I think I only ran about two times in the past two weeks- yikes!  I know I’m in good enough shape to run the 5k, though, so I figured doing that was better than nothing.  I’m going to try to find a 10k in my area to do sometime during the summer.

I went home last weekend for Mother’s Day.  I spent Friday evening with my grandparents, who I haven’t seen since Thanksgiving (which is longer than I’ve ever gone without seeing them- I’ve certainly missed them!).  My little sister (who’s a junior in high school) had her junior prom on Saturday, so most of the day was spent getting ready for that.  She looked gorgeous!  My cousin Bri came over to help her with makeup and stayed until about midnight, so it was nice to spend some time with her, as well.  The prom was held in “The Castle”, an old armory, and it was a beautiful venue.  Since it was in town (in the past it has almost always been in a town 45 minutes away), I decided to go to the crowning, which is open to the public, so it was a bit of a late night.  On Sunday, we went to church, then headed to Oneonta (about 45 minutes away) to meet my grandparents and aunt, uncle, and cousins to celebrate Mother’s Day at Brook’s BBQ.  It was nice to see my cousins again (once again, we hadn’t seen them since Thanksgiving, which is rather uncommon).  Once we were finished eating, my dad drove me back to campus.

The past week was my only full week in the classroom for fieldwork, and I must say it was exhausting!  It’s really hard to get to bed early at night when everyone else doesn’t have to be up in the morning until 10 or later, but I’ve been doing a pretty good job of getting to bed on time (I have to- it’s no fun having too little sleep when around kids all day).  I only have a week and a half until I return to home sweet home!!  To say I’m excited doesn’t even begin to describe how I’m feeling.  I am ready for a nice, long break.

I am going to be working two jobs this summer, but I will hopefully still have time to get everything done that I want to do.  And one for one of the jobs, I will be doing one of my favorite things- (exterior) painting!

I have a lot of homework to do this weekend, but will try to fit in another post (that’s not about my life, hopefully).  Have a lovely weekend!  I hope it’s relaxing and fun-filled!
