Hey hey! I’m in total vacation mode even though I’ve got three days of work left before leaving for Hawaii. Since Danny’s been in school, we try to take a vacation every August (his longest break between semesters) and I’m so looking forward to a week of relaxing and exploring the beautiful island of Kauai. Ok, FINE, I’ll stop talking about it. Posting might be sporadic for 1-2 weeks since, you know, I’ll probably be too busy lounging on the beach to blog! Ok I’m done this time, for real. 😉
It’s becoming a little more real as each day passes by that we’re on the final stretch of this school journey, and I couldn’t be more ready. Going back to college for a STEM degree when you’re in your 30s and married looks a lot different than when you’re 18 and living at home, and by different I mean substantially harder. It’s crazy to imagine that a year from now, I don’t know what we’ll be doing, but school won’t be part of the equation (at least for now – who knows what the future holds). I’m excited for what’s to come – whatever that may be!
And now, the many things I read this week…
This piece on self-judgment and inability to take a compliment really hit home.
Op-ed: Trump reflects white male fragility. Agreed.
I’ve got about six hours left to listen to of The Wise Man’s Fear (a 42+ hour book!), so I enjoyed reading this interview with the author, Patrick Rothfuss.
Ever since discovering Donald and Hobbes, I can’t stop laughing/crying on the inside. So good.
President Obama on feminism. Loved this!
