One life lessoned learned when coming to college and then going to Grad school is there are moments where you have to make time for the people you love. I could sit in a library and attempt to learn everything there is to know about the body for 3 weeks without any trouble. But it is so important to keep a perspective on your most important priorities (for me that would include my family, friends, and faith) and step away from the books now and again. So while I can't wait to get my doctorate (!!!!), I also want to still have the people that make this crazy journey worth while be there when I get my diploma. You will probably hear me repeat the "my parents, siblings, and even extended family are the greatest" speech often....but it's true.

Speaking of blessings, I can't wait for the next couple of weekends to spend some great time with some fantastic friends! (Birthdays, corn mazes, 80s prom shopping in Oklahoma, much missed time with my high school friends....the list is extensive!) But until those weekends, I must continue to be frien-emys with the books and papers! Have a wonderful week watching the trees begin to change!
