So, I finally did it. FINALLY!!!
Over the past 3 years I have been going to school full time to finish my undergraduate degree in Global Studies at the University of Washington Bothell while working full time. Readings, papers, presentations, and work events have kept me very (and I mean very) busy, not to mention trying to find time for my family and myself. Basically, over the past 3 years I have at least slightly neglected my poor husband and our pets, and completely neglected any household duties that I had taken on prior to that. I’m now back to cleaning, doing laundry, you know, all the things that people LOVE doing.
But, one of the best things about being done with school is that I now get to cook and eat and really enjoy it. No rush, I can pour a glass of wine and really take it all in. I don’t have to worry about getting done quickly because I have to finish a 10 page paper or have a test to study for the next day. It means that I can enjoy food like I haven’t been able to for a long time.
