Well life keeps going, faster than I'd like. Sadly this means my little blog has been neglected and I've been feeling guilty about that. I decided on a new title, I'm no longer just surviving I'm blooming where I've been planted but I know that this phase will be short and I'll be moving again. Perhaps that's what I've learned the most over the last little while is that change is the only constant in life. So then my life will always be a metamorphosis a process of adapting to the changes that happen.
I'm doing spring/summer classes which I'm really enjoying but they are incredibly fast paced but this suits me and my learning style even better. I don't feel overwhelmed at all, I like going fast and longer class time allows me to really dig into the learning. It's also nice to be using different parts of my brain. I'm taking human biology, finite math, and religious studies. The religious studies has been amazing since we started with hinduism. I finally understand some of the things I saw in India in a way I didn't then. It's been nice to reflect back on that experience and use it in my studies in a concrete way.
My feet feel itchy again...I want to be traveling but I'm committed to school for a while yet. However, I am thinking I will take time off between my degree and my masters to travel. With a B.Ed. I can teach abroad or in Northern Canada for a few years while experiencing someplace new. I'm not committing to anything yet but I know more travel is in my future. It's part of my commitment to doing things that make me happy and fulfilled instead of just wishing I wasn't single.
The biggest struggle I face is that I hate being single, I miss being part of a couple. The little things like always having someone to come home to, talk to, do things with. The problem is while I'm beginning to feel ready to date...there is a shortage of dateable guys in my life. Education programs are pretty female dominated and bachelor programs are filled with guys that are just way too young. I'm realizing that if they're single and close in age...there's a reason they're single.
I've been excited waiting for peanut to arrive but it's still quite a ways off. Watching my sister and her husband has been so much fun, they are going to be great parents. There is a little sadness that I am beginning to think this won't be an experience I'll get to have first hand but at least I can be the best aunt ever.
Well this post has rambled a little...if you stuck with all this thanks! I'll try to post more frequently in the next little while.
