I'm still firmly in the pro-navy-and-black camp as evidenced by this outfit. Even though the color combination is dark, the short sleeves and short skirt make this perfect for mild spring days. This was one of those perfect days where a skirt and ankle boots (sans tights) felt appropriate for the weather. Can we get more of these days and fewer snowstorms/85°+ degree days, please? #wishcasting
For this post, I thought it'd be fun (and appropriate) to answer these five life-related questions posed by Grechen a week ago.
What are you doing this summer?
I'm moving back to Idaho after I defend and turn in my dissertation! Hopefully I'll have a job lined up by then (and if I don't, then I'll be job hunting). I've got a week in Florida planned with my family and then I hope to see the solar eclipse, but that's the extent of my summer plans as of right now.
How’s work? Any big changes on the horizon?
My job as a professional student is coming to an end, so I guess you could say that's a pretty big change! ;) I'm not sure yet where I will end up next but I'm hopeful that something will come along soon. I'm very worried about not having a job and then losing my health insurance in August when I'm no longer under my student health insurance.
What’s something you really look forward to in the next couple of months?
I'm moving back to my hometown to be closer to my family, so I'm excited for that even though moving sucks! I'm also looking forward to moving into my boyfriend's place (and decorating, hehe).
Any challenges you’re working your way through right now?
I'm working through a few challenges: worrying that I won't do well when I defend my dissertation in a couple of days/feeling like I don't "know enough" to defend; feeling bittersweet about leaving Utah next month and trying not to take the mountains for granted; suddenly not wanting to let go of some items I listed on my Poshmark even though normally once something is listed on Poshmark, I'm ready to let go. I'm not sure where that last one is coming from, but perhaps it's related to all the other changes happening in my life. I'm not good with change.
How are you feeling? In general, specifically, whatever…
Stressed. Nervous. Anxious. Excited. Hopeful. Thankful.
I'm also a bit frustrated. I've been doing some kind of daily workout/stretching regularly since about mid-February and it doesn't feel like I'm getting stronger/fitter or more flexible. UGH! I know I shouldn't give up but it's so hard to want to keep going when I'm not seeing or feeling results. (Is three months too soon to see or feel results?)
Now it's your turn!
