Happy Thursday friends!
You know the drill by now: write down a few things you've been thinking this week, and then link up below so that others can read what you've shared! Right click and save the photo above if you want to use one for the Thursday Thoughts link-up, or use your own!
Nick has been working 24/7 lately and I feel like I haven't seen him in forever! Okay, I'm exaggerating, but he's been working 12-hour shifts all week (12pm-12am; 2pm-2am; etc.) so I have got to see him a few minutes here or there. I keep telling myself this is good practice for when he's a doctor, but still, boo!
A local shop that does custom invitations just asked me to help make two sets of wedding invitations for a client of theirs. Totally random how they found me (my bestie Liz went in there with the prototype invitation I made for her and the shop owner liked it), but I'm kind of excited to play with graphic design and get paid for it. Don't get me wrong, I'd probably do it for free, but I'm totally psyched nonetheless.
I'm kicking butt on my dissertation prospectus. I've written 22 pages in the past four days of good, solid work. Total props to Paul Silvia whose scheduled writing time has changed my life. (If you're in a profession where writing is necessary but you procrastinate a ton, this is the book for you. He also wrote a great book for undergraduate psychology majors.)
Yesterday, my alma mater PLU announced their new president for next year, Dr. Thomas Krise. For those who don't know, PLU is a tiny (about 3500 students) liberal arts university in Tacoma, WA. We had the prior president (Dr. Anderson!) for 20 years, so this is a huge change for us. I'm really excited to see where Dr. Krise takes the university.
It's been snowing in my hometown and yesterday, it was 78º F in Texas. Today, it's supposed to make it up to 79º. All I have to say is: awesome.
Guys, it's March. March. Where in the heck did January and February go?! Spring break is the week following next, which is weird because I have no plans for the first time in four years (Dad, we should've planned another trip to Disneyworld!). I'll be housesitting at professor's place since their two golden retrievers are needy. It'll be a blast, as I get to live in their house for a week and a half, plus they live by a gorgeous park where I can go running. Lovin' it.
