today’s confession

in case you were wondering, this is how i feel about school. not interested and kind of annoyed. i’m just ready to be done. i could really go on and on with complaints. most of them are made up in my head. very few, of which, have any sort of validity to them. 
and then i check myself and realize that i should be really grateful that i have the opportunity to be educated, far beyond what other people get. and that, at the end of this academic year, i will have a nice piece of paper that proves it, and hopefully a little knowledge, too. and then i realize that it’s not so bad after all. quite frankly, i have a feeling i’m going to want this time in my life back once the reality of post-grad life sets in.
so, here’s to positivity, a grateful attitude, and teaching otis to look a little less like a murderer in future photos.
p.s. i took two naps yesterday. two. this girl needs to get her act together.

    Yes, you will miss these days once they're gone! I remember thinking there was no way I would, but I do. Take your naps, enjoy these days, and teach your cat to look a little less bored criminal. And, have a great week!

  9. I'm in that same mode… my Fall classes start in 4 weeks from today, and then I actually graduate in December!! I'm feeling overwhelmed and anxious, but so excited!

  11. Good Luck! I felt the same way while in college and grad school but now that I've been done for several years I find myself wanting to go back! It's crazy! Your kitty means business- so funny 🙂

    Today is the first day since preschool, 19 years, I won't attend a first day of class. Very bittersweet, yet I'm loving every minute of it. Ask me again after Labor Day when I start my "big kid" job!

  13. I can sympathize, I wasn't completely thrilled about school starting this year either. But, only one more year, and then it will be done! And you're right, we should enjoy college life while it's here, before the real world sets in 😉

  14. Hi Lauren! I have been reading your blog for a few months, but have never commented. Today, though, I want to congratulate you for enjoying your break (2 naps — how I envy you!) to the fullest. While you may be reluctant to leave your break behind, I have a feeling you are going to have an amazing senior year. Go get 'em, my friend!

    I just started classes on the 17th, so I am feeling your pain on wanting a break from classes! So jealous of the naps, I am in desperate need of one today! But, because I have no break in the near future, bring on the caffeine!

    Ha! And you're a big college girl and I'm a junior in high school… and I think MY life is hard!!! Oh buddy, I better prepare myself for the future (that is if I end up going to college). 😀

    And your cat is kinda creepy looking. No offense. 🙂

  22. LOVE this photo. And yes, it's true, you WILL want to go back to the school days once your done with it. It could be because I'm an artist, but life is so much harder now. I think back to the school days constantly wishing I'd done a little bit more, studied a little harder, had a little more fun.. Live it up lady!!
