Catching up on weekend posts?
This week is the home stretch. I have two final exams on Tuesday in Anatomy; but most importantly, the draft book is due on December 15, and I’d like to have it finished by Friday.
Two and a half months ago, I was driving to Anatomy night class when my phone rang. I looked at the caller ID and saw that it was my agent. Right then, I knew that everything in my life was going to change. It’s been a wild, crazy ride, and I feel really blessed that I was even given the opportunity to get on the rollercoaster!
Friends and family keep asking me what my plans are post-book. Honestly, this experience has taught me one thing: Make plans, and God laughs in your face. I’m not stressed out about the fact that I have NO plans for the Spring – no job, no school. There’s no use in me stressing out over it because what happens, will happen. I hope to come back from England on January 4, wrap up the final revisions to the book, and get another part-time job to hold me over until we move to Charlotte in the summer.
I am also excited to do some road tripping! I’m going to the Fit Bloggin’ Conference in March. I also want to visit my mom in Tennessee and some friends in Charlotte, Boston, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and DC. Wanna come with me via the blog? :) I might time my trips to coincide with some Half Marys, too.
Whew! On that note… breakfast!
Whole wheat pancakes (Hodgson’s Mills mix):
Melon + real maple syrup:
And COFFEE, of course!
Off to work I go! I shall leave you with my new favorite quote…

Do you find yourself stressing out about the future, about things you cannot control? I used to be really, really bad at this – it would keep me up for HOURS at night while I stressed. If you don’t, how do you keep yourself in the present?
