5.8.17

Day one of officially being in a PhD program as I start my prerequisite course. My nerves are high but but I REALLY love the material we're  covering so far.

I'm almost finished with my business degree-just a few terms left. With the two programs overlapping a bit, my summer and fall will be INTENSE. It still hasn't completely sunk in that I'm getting a PhD. It's truly a dream come true.

To deal with some of the stress today, I baked some pumpkin, banana, chocolate chip bread. I grabbed the recipe from Jessica at Together as Family and will be sending it to my pen pals. It's pretty delicious!

Sunday was comprised of marathoning paper grading and homework with a break for a walk down Main Street with a friend. Main Street hosted "Shop and Shine," a car show with participating businesses.

I'm pretty much in love with the Tea Cellar, a new tea room on Main. Photos below!

A new book review Joe Hill's Locke and Key Volume 1 is posted at my book review blog. (The Write Reader).

The big news I want to share is the I've been accepted into a PhD program. I'll be doing a doctorate in international psychology and trauma services. I'm so excited!


I will keep you all posted as I move through the process.

5.1.17

Today Cherry chewed on the Wisteria Bonsai. Fingers crossed it survives the trauma and I can find a place in the apartment that she can't get to. Le sigh.

Caterpillars are growing!

This was taken this morning.  I'm sure they will form a chrysalis soon and then I can set up their indoor habitat. 

I have other important news to share but I need to wait for a bit yet to do so. It's good news. :) 

Cheers, lovebirds
