On Ending a Bizarre School Year

Oh my gosh, I am so happy to be done with this year. I turned in my last paper, taught my last lessons, and I made it to Florida right to see family and friends and watch my sister GRADUATE from college it's fine I totally didn't cry at all.

This year was so tough. I don't even know specifically what it was, but for everyone I've talked to this seems to be the case. Obviously there has been a lot of social tension across the country and maybe that seeped into academia as well. No joke I had at least three panic attacks. It was really, really difficult. I am terribly glad it's over.


Some of my favorite people in the entire world will be leaving ASU and Tempe and it makes me so sad that it's kind of amazing I don't just burst out in tears like every afternoon. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do when they're gone. I'll have to make some new friends I guess (ugh when will it end! just kidding). 

Anyway, only ONE YEAR OF SCHOOL LEFT before exams and dissertation and then Dr whatever. So trust me, I understand how lucky I am. I really 100% do. I love my life and what I get to do everyday, I love my boyfriend so very much, I love my friends, my family, and my puppy. I am very, very happy. I just struggle with anxiety, and that's okay.

So don't mind me while I grapple with humidity and snuggle Joon for the next week. And I have photos from graduation to share within the next few days!
