SO much life has happened in the past week and a half and yet, when I look back its a bit of a blur with bright, colorful moments sprinkled in. Spent a very sunny weekend returning to Standard. Freshly made cinnamon donuts and massive beers isn’t too horrible of a way to welcome the weekend.
Then topped off the day with some super summery drinks. By Sunday, however, I had to force myself to recuperate a bit from the very stressful, sleepless week before. Almost on key, I got hooked on the Hunger Games books and a storm front rolled in. After such an intense year of prep, serious political knowledge building, applications, and interviews, it was pretty fun to get totally lost in a silly, but action packed book. Curling up with a book during a spring storm was just what I needed.
Then, came Monday. I waited all day to hear from Pickering and.. nothing. Then 5:45pm, on my way to yogalates (yes, please laugh, because I do, every time I say it), I received a congratulatory email! Woof. After the emotional roller coaster, stress, and exciting interview, it was just relief, peace, excitement, and happiness. I feel very blessed. :)
