Awkward and Awesome: Finishing

I've been feeling only marginally productive over the past couple days. Things are getting done, but not with as quickly as I'd like, the blame for which lies with me. Obviously.

Tomorrow I plan to go for a nice long walk and do some work at a coffee shop, away from the distraction of hooking my computer up to my TV and catching up on shows.

I also wanted to say thank you for all the well wishes finishing about school. It's been just the boost I needed to get through the last week or so of work (fingers crossed I'll be done with everything by next Tuesday evening).

I wanted to pop in to share some of my awkward and awesome moments from the past week. Because I'm always up for an excuse to "take a break."

- Getting sucked into Battlestar Galactica. I swear, Amazon Prime Instant Videos are the best/worst thing to happen to me. I've only seen a couple of these shows previously. Now I'm through the first two seasons. My watching has slowed down in the past couple weeks.
- School loans and not having a job lined up has me a little stressed.
- My roommate's cats have fleas. Not many and they've been treated, but I've banned them from my room (they love to hang out with me during the day) for a few days.
- Criminal Minds. I love that show but this week's episode was too much. For serious.
- This may sound silly, but the recycling at our apartment always fills up way before it's picked up. So today I took down all the recycling that had built up in our kitchen right after the truck came by.
- I've really, really been wanting to bake something, but haven't because I'm trying to eat fewer sweets and a batch of cookies would not support that plan. Because I would eat them all. The end.

- Feeling super supported by my program's community as I transition from student into (hopefully) the professional world.
- A delicious lunch at an Indian buffet today, to say goodbye to a classmate. The food was delicious and the company was great.
- Plans filling up my weekend: Friday night, most of the day Saturday, with Sunday open for laziness and football. Perfection.
- Having pretty much all my present purchased for Christmas. One more person to go and I'm set.
- My sister came down and hung out all last weekend. It was so good to have sister time again. I love that we can just sit side-by-side and read and totally enjoy ourselves. :)
- Fatmumslim's Photoaday for December. I love having prompts and being reminded to take photos every day. Plus I love meeting new folks on Instagram.

So, what's been awkward or awesome about your week?


  1. You can do it! The sooner you get it done, the sooner you can start thinking of other things :)

  2. You're almost there - woohoo! Sending you lots of cheers and well wishes that the end is swift and easy and not too stressful.

    There's just something about December that makes baking seem so necessary! It's hard to resist the urge sometimes. ;)

  3. Hang in there, you're so close! It will feel so amazing to be finished!

  4. It's really great to spend quality time with you and our kindles'/computers/etc.

  5. i got my hair done, so that was awesome. my roots were seriously bad. i hit over 14,000 views today, and that was awesome. and everything else was awkward, lol.
    you're almost thereeeeee!

  6. Having sister time is always so much fun! Adore ;)
    xo TJ

  7. That's the worst part of baking is that then you have to eat it all, maybe wait until you can bring them into school or something and then you can bake and NOT eat it too :)

  8. Ugh fleas! I once got fleas on an international flight - let's just say I was NOT happy when I got home

  9. so fun that you are almost done with school, go you!!!
