I cannot believe it's already September!?!? I know I promised another post back in the end of July/early August, but life has been so crazy, obviously that didn't happen...I don't even remember what I had been planning to post about then...OOPS! Oh well, so much has been going on, I have more than my fair share of topics to blog about...
Back to it being September...crazy, right?? This fall is a big time for me for multiple reasons:
1) My birthday! Coming up at the end of this week =) I'll be turning 25, so hitting my quarter-life crisis. Not sure what I'm going to do yet to celebrate being a quarter of a century...ideas/suggestions are welcomed!
2) Even more exciting than my birthday, MY WEDDING!! Looking back over previous posts, I realized I haven't ever mentioned getting engaged. So I'll mention in now...I'm engaged! (and have been for a while =P) We are getting married in about 3 weeks, and I'm super excited!! And nervous...but mostly excited.
3) I'm applying for jobs! I have officially begun working on my dissertation after passing my comprehensive exams in May. This fall I'm applying for professor positions for next year which is crazy?!?! Sometimes it feels weird to think that this time next year I'll (hopefully) be teaching at a small college somewhere. It's even crazier when twice in the last two days I've been mistaken for a high school student...hopefully I can figure out how to look older so the interviewers don't think I'm a confused student when I apply!
4) I've got some big doctor's appointments coming up...good and bad, I think. Good because hopefully we will finally get some answers and actually figure out the reasons I'm having problems, but bad because I at the point where I need these appointments. If you haven't read any of my other blog posts, you might not know this about me, but I HATE (HATE HATE HATE HATE) going to doctors, especially new doctors. But I've gotten to the point where I don't know that things will get better on their own anymore...so I'm scheduled to see one specialist in October and one in November. I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket or put unrealistic expectations on the appointments, but I am praying that these doctors will have some insight that will help me manage and treat everything that is going on.
So that's what's up! It's not like turning 25, getting married, applying for jobs, and trying to manage/treat chronic illness is anything to keep me busy, but that's why I haven't posted in a while! I hope to be back a bit more consistent, but no promises...at least now you'll know why if I go a few weeks without a post!
