Hello! I am officially done with work for the summer! I will still be working the same place about once a week once school starts in a couple of weeks, but I’m taking some time to catch up (plus go to Hawaii with my family!)
I still have a 6 mile run to do today. I really should have done it early this morning but I’ve been moping around all morning.
I’m excited to go back to school, but I’m also not ready for this to be my last year. I don’t do well with endings or goodbyes, and I’m already worrying about how to stay in touch with everyone, especially if I move away right away.
Mid-mornign today I had a pumpkin mug cake to drown my sorrows (because I firmly believe it is never too soon).
I just threw some things together in a bowl, and it turned out great! Egg, butter, pumpkin, spices, maple syrup, vanilla, and some gluten free flour.
Also-this is about my life right now. To keep the puppy busy, we dumped out every toy she owns. Having a puppy is hard!
It looks like we have just about every holiday represented up there, including Earth Day!
Since I’m feeling sort of nostalgic and not ready for things to change, I thought I’d share some snapshots of college memories through the years.
