I made it. Here I am after my first semester of graduate school. I survived… More than survived, I worked my arse off for high marks in my courses. It’s hard to believe all that time, all that writing and relearning/learning that occurred. How everything will continue and I will continue to evolve in my academic and professional career. I can hardly believe it, it’s happening.
Indeed, more has happened. Romantically, my life is unlike anything I ever imagined. The serenity I feel in love with Stephen and the support, it’s unlike anything I’ve experienced. For some people love is meant to send them in an obsession but for me that’s too unhealthy. I find peace and affection with Stephen, we make plans and that come together even if it’s not the way we envisioned. When I fall apart, he’s there to hold me and search for a solution as my equal.
I feel like I can see our life together and it’s so real, so loving, so adventurous.
I am hoping to accomplish even more. One regret I had of this past year was the lack of writing I did. I sort of put that to the way side and I continue to struggle to write creatively on a regular basis. Now that I am on holiday, I hope to find a way to incorporate a way to write for fun and not only for school. We shall see. Here’s to the Christmas and the joy it’ll bring. On to more goals and achievements and failures and snafus with my love and my family and friends.
