College Lessons

 So what have I learned so far this school year since I've gone back to college? A bunch! I've learned that it's hard to study after 11 p.m., chocolate is still a girl's best friend, and wireless headphones are a heaven sent blessing.

Seriously though, I've been hard at work studying, except last week during Spring Break when I ONLY went to work for 40 hours and didn't study at all. LOL! I've had to change my habits. I make myself get to work right after dinner, and there's no TV or social life to speak of. That's okay. I've got a terrific group of friends from church who cheer me on, and let me join in whatever they're up to whenever I can carve out a couple hours. I've learned that making your own decisions can be thrilling, and sometimes a little overwhelming. I've been reminded again and again how blessed I am to have such a great group of co-workers who make me laugh - often!

Life is  meant to be lived and enjoyed, not just endured. That's my main takeaway from the past 8 months.

I'm still writing for other outlets, like the newspaper, and the blog at Conner Prairie, there's just not much time to write here anymore. If you want to keep up, follow my adventures on Instagram.

Hope you're finding Spring popping up all around you! It's time for me to get back to studying.
