I was talking to Hermit last night (we had a date night, yay!) and he told me, in no uncertain terms, that I need to start posting again. I have been holding off for a while because (apart from being ridiculously, amazingly busy) I just don't feel like I have anything to talk about. He kind of verbally beat me for a while, in the kindest possible way, just listing things that I could write about...so I feel like I've just been lazy for not posting in, like, a year.
Basically yes, I am lazy.
So I should give you all a bit of an update about where my life is right now. I'm still in grad school though I feel like it was touch and go for a while. My first semester was incredibly rough. I went through several months asking myself everyday why I was putting doing this, and on top of that I was horrific to live with. It was very, very unfun. Then Christmas was wonderful, I spent most of the time sewing and totally ignoring work as much as I could, whilst still working on a paper and having language classes. I finally relaxed for the first time in forever. I went back to the UK and spent some time at home and then had a minor breakdown the night before I flew back to Baltimore. Which I think terrified my Mum :/ I did NOT want to come back to this strange country, and put myself back into this school which was killing me last semester. And then I spent about an hour on the plane crying, and I was in the worst mood when we finally landed :( it was a sad thing. I felt awful for Minx and Hermit because they were so happy to have me back, and whilst I was happy to see them and the child again I was so scared about being back and going back to school.
I'm back at school now, and it's surprisingly ok. It's just over halfway through the second week, and I have not totally died yet. I even did an archaeology report yesterday that I didn't totally fail at, which is THE most amazing feeling :D Things are looking up, and whilst I'm sure I'll have other low points I think I can do this, and make it all the way through.
I will try and start posting again. No promises - but I'll try.
