2 More Weeks!
“Wish we could turn back time to the good old days. When our mama sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out” – Twenty-One Pilots
Things are beginning to even out for the most part and in 10 days Xmas is finally going to be here. The tree and lights are up, shopping is almost done, but I am not quite in the spirit. Close but not yet. I feel like I have so much to do and time is running out. But I know that everything will fall into place. I wish I could just enjoy the season and relax. Welcome to being an adult.
As of today, marijuana is legal in Massachusetts. I guess that is the only positive to the election. At least if Trump is definitely going to be president, we can smoke through it all. We shall see what happens from here.
The best news of it all, however….2 more weeks of class left and I am done research classes!
Now if you remember, I started off with 20 weeks. I cannot believe it is almost over. Technically my class ends January 8th due to the break, however I will be working through Xmas break to perfect my final project and if all works out the way I think it will…. ANOTHER A is added to my GPA! I have worked hard, extremely hard, and I am so glad I stuck through it and did not give up. I did not like the instructor at first, however he is a great instructor and has helped me a ton. Although I did not understand why I needed this class, now I kind of understand why and I have put more pressure on myself than needed. After the call with the instructor, I felt more confident and I am honored to have had him as an instructor.
I cannot believe I am almost done this two-part course! I admit, I am insanely proud of myself thus far and I have no doubt I’ve got this. It is a strange feeling to believe in yourself when you spent so much time doubting yourself. I think this course makes the rest of the work look easy. I know it will be hard work, but I overcame my biggest hurdle: NUMBERS. I hate statistics and math and a huge part of this course was numbers, statistics, formulas, and analyzing data. But I did it!
There’s not too much to say this week. I have been keeping a low profile. I did receive some bad news last night and the next week will be tough, but I will be okay and life will go on. I miss my Uncle David lately. More than normal. I miss my Grampa D and how he always knew the answers. I think the holidays always has a sentiment of sadness buried within the happiness. It lies below the surface when I think of the angels that guide my life now. The stars in the sky remind me they look down upon me always. I just wish some divine intervention would happen and my troubles would be washed away. But that is not reality and all I can do is keep fighting through and know that my day is coming. We will all struggle in some way, but life needs to be lived and we all need to remember that bad times are temporary. Now if I can only remember that when times are tough! 😉
Angels we have heard on high….
Kitchen Kauldron: I had leftover fettuccine and chicken so I made a mock Alfredo sauce. By mock, I mean I did not follow a recipe just threw the main stuff together and worked my magic. I used half and half and some whole milk, butter, garlic, a bunch of herbs, shredded Italian 4 cheese blend and some shredded Parmesan. I reduced it, added the leftover chicken and pasta, and VOILA! Bean loved it, so I guess it was a hit!
Popcorn Worthy: I am not sure I would say this movie was great, but we watched The Legend of Frosty the Snowman on Netflix last night. It almost seems like a sequel to the original Frosty. It was okay. Bean got kind of bored and Frosty creeped me out, but give it a watch and let me know what you think!
Press Play: I have been working on some lyrics lately and I am finding my groove again. I cannot wait to sing again. Karaoke is needed ASAP! As far as listening, I have been obsessed with Starset still and Tantric. They kill the cover of The Chain that Fleetwood Mac does and I do not say that lightly. Fleetwood Mac is an icon and legend. Nope…no Xmas music is played on my free time but Bean sings it constantly.
History Lesson: This interested me…. the phonograph was patented today in 1877 and Walt Disney died in 1966…ironically, today in 1973 Pirates of the Caribbean opened.
Until next week…..be good or be good at it guys!
