State of the Union: Update

Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned… The last time I wrote, there was still snow on the ground. Actually considering I live in Canada, that’s not an accurate measurement of passed time.

Let’s just say, it’s been a while.

Life got in the way as it usually does, but this time I just didn’t feel like writing. So I didn’t. And boy, did I miss it today. Rather than apologize and promise to do better, I thought I’d run through a quick update of the craziness of my life right now.

Let’s hit it:

As of 11:00 AM on Tuesday, April 21st, I have officially completed the second year of my Honours Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. Excuse me, what? Did the last eight months even happen or is this some shady joke? I can’t quite grasp that it’s been two years, and I’m now half-way done my degree. In two more years, I’ll be able to write my NCLEX and be a real nurse, and that’s just way too terrifying.

The last month has been a blur of studying for final exams and wedding prep. Because in just two short weeks, my sister is getting married. Once again, excuse me, what? I swear it was just yesterday we flew home from her engagement party. As we’re choosing to be as cost-effective as possible there are a ton of DIY projects happening right now. We’re just about finished the centrepieces and I’ve been working steadily on her bridal, brooch bouquet (my present to her). It’s been madness. Every moment I haven’t been studying, I’ve been doing something or other for the wedding.

I’ve been feeling rather anti-social lately and I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been so busy, or if I’m in desperate need of something to spice up my life. Luckily I won’t have to wait long for a change of scenery, since we’re road tripping down to Georgia in a couple weeks. For the wedding of course. If the number of times I’ve said “wedding” so far has seemed excessive, imagine the state of my brain.

With most of my favourite shows on summer hiatus I’ve been rewatching The OC and Grey’s Anatomy. I picked the absolute worst time to do so because all I want to do is binge watch and I can’t. I seriously forgot how good the old episodes of Grey’s were and the music still gives me chills. And considering Ryan Atwood was my first fictitious character true love, I couldn’t not start it again. Watch this scene (skip ahead to a minute in) and don’t smile/sigh/yearn for a perfect bad boy. I dare you.

The windshield of my car has decided to crack which is extremely inconvenient and rather irritating. The crack seems to be coming right from the base and not a chip that can be sealed, so naturally I have to replace the entire thing. You know, just in case I needed another task on my to-do list.

I’m taking three spring courses – two Greek mythology, and one statistics class because I clearly don’t love myself. I should be done by July 11th, which still gives me a month and half of summer. I figure it would make my fall and winter semesters slightly lighter and keep me occupied during the summer. Having a class from 7-10 PM every Wednesday hurts me a little. Ugh.

That wraps up the current state of the union. Life is busy and I’m loving every minute of it. That being said, I am excited to scale down my responsibilities for a while and leave more time to do things that I want to do. Which hopefully includes feeling inspired enough to write.

Here’s to summer my loves,

– S.
