or busy, rather.
spring break was a good week of playing, getting homework done, and being generally social. which was nice. i got a lot done for my presentation in st louis and i got a lot of homework done for the upcoming week. however, that was minimal compared to the large projects that i have coming down the pike, not to mention the saturday class that will start on the 27th of this month. i think that might put me over the edge–however, i just have to keep telling myself….FOUR CLASSES LEFT! as i have been working on my presentation on embalming for st louis, i have been getting more and more excited about the possibility of a book for my field project. while the study of death, language, and grief does take its toll in a way, i never find it uninteresting or a bother to read about. i have been thinking a lot about how i want to set up the book…how many chapters, which parts of death and language i want to focus on, how long i will need for each topic, etc…and i am really looking forward to what the end product will look like. i even have a little fantasy about a real publisher picking it up. as my masters program comes to a close, i am very much looking forward to having a very hard core piece of work to show for it. i have high hopes.
i need to focus on being more mellow again. the past 4 weeks or so have been sort of insane. lots of hanging out. lots of late nights. lots of feeling generally uprooted. my 30 year old body is pissed. in fact, i think i pulled a muscle in my sleep last night. who does that? old people. that is who. lol. i mean really, i pulled a damn muscle just rolling over in bed. my half asleep mind made a joke about it at the time…and i am pretty sure i even laughed out loud in my sleep….’hahaha, chelsea. that should be your next facebook status update: who pulls a muscle in their sleep? yeah, old people. i guess that is me now”. awesome. it was really funny to me in the moment. ANYWAY, i have missed my time at home, in my bed, with my pups, and chilling the efff out.
life is still really good. i am really happy. everything is sort of working in my favor. i just got a raise at work, so that should help with these crappy divorce bills i am still trying to pay off…but i am getting there. i make my last payment on one loan this month, so i feel good about that. it is slow…but it is going. the house is still pending a short sell and the run around seems to be happening at this point. however, i am confident that it will work out and the foreclosure will be avoided.
