Good morning & happy Sunday! I am excited this morning, because Justin is coming home! He has been away in our hometown since Thursday. One of our friends got married this weekend, and he was one of the groomsmen. I wish I could have been there! I am so glad he's coming back today. I'm tired of holding down the fort alone, and I miss him!
Other than that, today will be a day of studying, running/working out, and finishing up housework. I'm glad I've been productive this week, because it means I was able to get my house back in order and prepare for the school week ahead. 
Also: my apologies - everyone who linked up with last week's edition of The Sunday Currently did not get tweeted last week. I'll be back on schedule with Tuesday Tweets this week! 
On this productivity Sunday, I am currently...
reading power points, chapters in text books, and quiz questions. I have a test Monday morning! It…

which matter most.

the things which matter most  should never be at the mercy of the things which matter least  - johann wolfgang von goethe
I stumbled across this quote this morning, at a time when I really needed it. I am very easily wrapped up in stress and worry, but sometimes it's ok to let it be true that the little things don't matter. Not in the sense that I don't believe in joy in the little things in life, but rather that sometimes in the grand scheme of a big change, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That's what I'm counting on.

This morning I'm popping in for a quick edition of The Sunday Currently. I have a lot of school work  to do today, and I need to get started soon!
reading statistics notes, out of a book for my therapeutic use class, and lots of other things today I'm sure. writing in my new agenda when it comes this week. I couldn't be more excited.  listening to ESPN. It's football season! thinking that I'm going to start parting my hair on the other side again. Just feels like it's time to change that up again. smelling the cheesy biscuit that is my breakfast. Delicious. Oh, and I still have some coffee left to enjoy as well. wishing I would have had more time in Chapel Hill this past week to explore some of the restaurants and shops that D suggested to me. hoping I get a lot of work done today.  wearing a warm, colorful scarf today. It's cold! loving that my schedule is getting somewhat back to normal this week. wanting a huge glass of water. ne…

Good morning & happy Sunday! Hopefully by the time you are reading this blog post, I will have already gotten out of bed, gone on a run, and eaten breakfast. Later today, I am off to Chapel Hill, and there is much to do before then! 
On this travel day Sunday, I am currently...
reading lots of emails. For the longest time, I didn't think I was getting any comments through the write me gadget you see on the right hand side of this blog. I was wrong, though. They were coming in through the "social" tab on my gmail, which I never really think to check. Thank you all for your messages about The Sunday Currently! I am sorry it took me a while to respond to your questions and comments, but I am so happy that you took the time to write. Please, never hesitate to contact me. writing assignments and other such documents. I really miss journaling, but unfortunately I haven't made much time to do that recently. Maybe in the coming weeks I wi…

this morning.

Good morning! Today I am coming to you from my old white laptop, and I have to say, it is bringing back some memories. When I started OT school, I had to get a new computer, because this one was lagging when I tried to perform certain required-by-school functions. We still kept this one, though, and Justin uses it mainly now. I guess the sentimental thing about this laptop is that it is the one I was using back in 2013 when I was on a blogging frenzy. And in 2012. And in 2011. This laptop has been to many, many coffee shops and libraries. It has accompanied me on many a blogging adventure, through link-ups and projects and pouring out my feelings. It's been lots of places with me. 
This morning I decided to take it easy and have some coffee while catching up on my favorite YouTube channels. My all-time favorite is, of course, Pretty Neat Living [blog & YouTube], whom I used to write about a lot when she was still posting under the Organized Jen moniker. It felt nice to just k…

Good morning! It's been a relatively productive weekend over here at the C Residence, and for me, that means that a lot of statistics studying has happened (with more to come later today). This week will be a busy one, but I'm ready for it! I'm just taking one day at a time, and little by little, the semester is going right on by. Here's to a productive week!
On this school work Sunday, I am currently...
reading formulas, word problems, and study guides (oh my?) for my statistics test that's coming up this week. It feels good to be tackling it little by little, and not getting too discouraged. It helps a lot to have classmates to bounce ideas off of. I still haven't finished reading Go Set A Watchman, but this week, I was thinking about re-instating reading before bed - a book, that is. Lately, I read Reddit every night before bed, but maybe even switching between reading a…
