This week has been just the beginning of several different things in my life!
1. It was the beginning of the FALL SEMESTER of classes! Woohoo!
But seriously...I was very excited to get back into the routine of going to class-that is until I realized just how tiring it was! My routine for the last month has just been to wake up whenever I desire and do whatever I desire just about all day, every day. This has definitely had to change! I think the biggest exhaustion of it is simply having to get up, get ready, and be somewhere practically all day! Not that sitting in a lecture classroom is really exerting that much energy, but just being out and about and having so much to think about! Thinking can be exhausting! :)
On the positive side, I have really enjoyed getting into classes and having my own little schedule. I seem to do much better when I have a schedule and I have a little more discipline in my life!
2. It was the beginning of a new nightly routine (my days have changed...so have my evenings!)
My sister will be the very FIRST to tell you that for the past month or so I have only been paying rent in Charleston...I have actually been living in St. Albans :)
She says this because I have been spending a lot of my time at my mom's house in the evenings because Mike has been working the closing shift at work...and who wants to sit alone in an apartment until 10 pm every night? NOT ME! So I have been spending my evenings having dinner and just hanging out with my mom and sister.
This has changed though! Since my days have been full of classes these past few days, I have actually just been coming home at night! (Actually...tonight was the first night)! I spent my day in class, went to Starbucks to get some homework done (and see that handsome hubby of mine), went to Target to pick up a few things and came home to finish homework, have some dinner, hangout with my precious Yorki-poo Zoe, and of course...spend some time sitting on the porch writing to you!
My nights are definitely going to be a little different from here on out...now that I have lots to keep me busy at the apartment (homework and housework).
3. The weather is changing...FINALLY!
So I thought yesterday was a total fluke! I woke up to a 68 degree, slightly overcast morning. I got all ready for my day (first day of class remember) and wore what I would typically wear for an August day...a tank dress with sandals. Luckily I am usually a cold natured person so I brought along my handy jean jacket which has been my constant companion these past few weeks! Its a good thing I remembered to bring it with me, because it never warmed up like I thought it was going to! I mean...it got warm, but not in the 90's like it has been! It finally just settled somewhere around 75 degrees and partly cloudy! It was an amazing day! I was actually chilly when I was walking outside from class to class! It was GLORIOUS!
Today proved to be just as wonderful...if not more so simply because I did not anticipate another fall-ish day!
The rest of the week is supposed to be similar and I am just so excited!
Have I mentioned on here how much I LOVE FALL!?!?!
I think I have. :)
So there you have it...some simple beginnings this week that were most definitely inspiring! I predict many more posts since fall is coming (or here!) because fall tends to really inspire me and get my creative juices flowing...why is that? Not sure, but I'm excited to see what this fall brings!
