A lot of people seem to think that 2012 signals the end of the world. I kind of hope that's true. In a world where teachers are laid off by the thousands and some idiot (I'm talking to you Charlie Sheen) who is a wife-beating, prostitute using, drug abusing, father of five kids with three different women is a "winner," there is simply no reason to keep on going. I wouldn't blame God one bit if he just scrapped this whole humans inhabiting the Earth thing and started over from scratch. Maybe this time he should forgo the whole apple tree deal though.

Anxiety? No thanks.

So my last couple of posts were rather gloomy due to the severe anxiety and depression I was recently feeling. The good news is that I am feeling A LOT better. I went to see my doctor last week and the marvels of modern medicine have been working like a charm as they usually do. So, things are looking up and I feel good about the future again. YAY!

I have a lot to do in the next three months and I am looking forward to accomplishing it all, but it has been stressful. I've been really tired lately so I'm building in time during the week to slow down, decompress, and recharge. That is SO needed no matter who you are, but when you're in the throes of graduate school and working, and doing this and doing that, it's a must.

It has helped that the weather has been cooperative lately. Yesterday and today were two more "let the fresh air in" days. I am going to miss these days when the humidity kicks in, which will happen in the next few weeks. I'm enjoying these breezy beautiful days for as long as possible.
