Daily 5 - Year 3, Day 235

Today's Daily 5:

  1. Last day of group work for the semester!
  2. Lunch and drinks with some friends
  3. A really funny "meet the parent" moment at a friend's house
  4. Deciding on the spur of the moment that I would kill a little bit of time in between commitments by shopping, and ending up finding some really awesome deals on some little things to treat myself and make me feel pretty, and an even better deal on a dress to wear to my brother's wedding in June (and since dress shopping had been a colossal disaster thus far, this is something hugely worth celebrating!)
  5. Having my friends Karla and Gary Adolphe join us at house church tonight.  I was so encouraged by their ministry and the things they shared, and by Karla's worship leading.  Such an awesome way to end out my first semester of nursing school - sitting in room with my church family and being invited to hear God speak to us.  I was so very encouraged by a number of little things today, and the time at church tonight was a sort of crown on top - a reminder of who God is, and that He knows me.  So very, very needed.

A Night Off and a Coming Break

I took last night off.

When I got home from school, I finished up a few final polishes on my last paper of the semester, printed it, put it in my bag for submission today, and declared it an evening off.

Yesterday was my final presentation of the semester, too.

All that stands between me and two and a half weeks off are two half-days of class, one meeting, and one final exam.  By this time next week, I'll be a free woman.

The night off was blissful.

I sat in bed, caught up on The Voice (which, by the way, I'm loving for a second season in a row), ate some treats, and did some knitting.

The quiet was fabulous.  The break from school was even better.

And knowing that I'm only a few days from a much more lengthy break?  That's the best part of all!
