mission impossible.

*Cue the Trumpets*


4 papers and 3 exams later....finals week was absolute hell. Regardless, I have survived the first quarter of my doctorate unscathed and couldn't be more proud of myself. One down 8 to go! I will post more this weekend since I haven't done a real post in a while, but I wanted to let everyone know!

Goodnight :)

the mist.

Well, the vote was BARACKed and I am so happy! I absolutely love listening to him talk; I have faith that he can take this country in a new direction. If all else fails, at least we have a president who can speak in completed sentences and doesn't use words like "strategery" and "misunderestimated".

Anyway... this is the last week of classes and I couldn't be more thrilled. I am exhausted and ready for some time off. The weather is changing - it has a rained a few days and we've definitely seen some of that infamous San Francisco fog. Have I mentioned that I am so ready for christmas?

Dare to believe in change?

final destination.

It's been a while since my last post...of course, I've been super busy with school! Only two more weeks until finals and then 6 weeks off!! I am so excited. I can't believe that I am almost finished with the fall quarter. I know this whole experience is going to be over before I know it. Anyway, school is going much better - there is always so much to do: reading, papers, exams, blogging, roleplays, therapy, presentations...sometimes I think I'm losing my mind!

I'm starting to get really excited for winter. For those of you that know me, you know that winter if my absolute favorite time of year. I love it when the weather gets chilly (winter clothes are awesome: sweaters, comfy hoodies, scarfs, hats, and 'em!), the leaves fall of the trees, and everyone is happy. I love being in the Christmas spirt, shopping for presents, holiday music, SALES, snow (not likely here), and being amongst tinsel, pine trees, and twinkly lights! I watch Christmas movies for months - Muppet Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone, The Family Man, Father of the Bride (I watched this no less than 100 times last year), Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, The Grinch, Reindeer Games, and Frosty. This year is going to be particularly special since it is our first wedding anniversary :) On December 28th, it will be one year since I became Jill Whisnant! Times goes so fast.

Happy Holiday Season Everyone (I know, I'm insane...)
