I iz a full-time student again. Which means I now study three days a week and work three days a week. (I haven’t figured out when and how to sleep yet but am hoping that will come soon – perhaps on the seventh day? :D)
And for the first time in over 10 years, I have a great photo on my student card. It’s totally shallow but the old pic was truly hideous and they kept reprinting the same ugly photo on my card each time I enrolled in a new course. Now finally the admin team let me take a minute of their time to get a new photo taken. And allowed me approve it. Such. A. Relief. And. Ego. Boost.
More importantly, clever me has chosen a course that makes my heart sing. I’m interested in the subjects. I’ve already been reading text books. For pleasure.
It’s another fantastic start to the year. I feel balanced and strong in my little mandorla world. Others around me are going through their personal crises and I’m able to offer support to them (and still feel grateful for all that was given to me).
I’ve had to virtually drop out of the creative writing class… and after there was a picture of us in the local paper and everything! Perhaps that was the highest accolade anyway. 😉 Of course I’ll still be writing…
The household held a dinner party last night and my coconut-fruit ice-cream was very well received. It comes across as being all fancy yet it’s so easy to make. Plus the company was great and I think we all had a good time. More house parties please!
So I don’t have much to write about, just oiling the blog, preventing rust… must remember not to leave it out in the rain either…
