"The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself.What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it’s your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who’s not full of hate, who’s able to smile and be carefree. So that’s who I have to be."

today in bullets.
  • My taxes are done! 
  • I released two rescued turtles today. 
  • I ate a cadbury creme egg. 
  • I just sent my references an update on my life plans (aka applying to grad school in South Africa). Composing that email took way too long … I have email OCD.  
  • Now I plan on drinking wine and cooking a big dinner. 
  • I need to do laundry.
  • I need to pack for my week of training up north.  You won’t really hear from me for a while. I’m going to try to stay off tumblr for the most part and as a result I’m going to fall behind on all of your lives. Sorry in advance.

Woo!

Already got a response to my informal inquiry from the professor in South Africa! :) That was fast … I was almost expecting no response. While the timing of when he wants someone to start this position doesn’t work with my availability … he told me to apply anyway because another position will be available later on.

Woohoo initiative! Woohoo potential head-start to a similar application process!
