(See here to hear pronunciation of the 3rd title word. It's cool, everyone's doing it.)

I recently became aware that my grad school has been the recipient of an NMC, which is really cool and you can learn more here. I keep referring back to it in my mind and the pride I feel is deep. I am more than ever at peace with my decision to pursue graduate school. Having just passed my 3yr graduation from undergrad this month, it feels good to be working on what I am. I need to be here. I want to be here. I am evolving. Yesssss.

It is only ¼ of a way through and while I have mostly positive feelings, I have had apprehension. There has also been anxiety, stress, longing for days when I did not have homework every.single.day. But aside from what I can assume is “normal,” I am eager to start my assignments each week, happy to review the various resources available, and I’m thriving for the challenge each publication I craft brings.

Hearing of this award, the NMC, I am provided with more contentment in my choice to take on a graduate program. My inspiration level is on the rise. Goals are back on my radar and quite literally I am working on the next chapter in my story. If nothing else is achieved from writing this down, this can serve as a point of reference to come back on the days I might be on the opposite end of this spectrum. But for this moment, I’m going to ride the wave of happy and do nothing but appreciate my choice.

Wowza,
Meggie

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
