I'm melting! Melting! Okay, not really--but it certainly feels like it. In case you've somehow missed it, the entire east coast is ON FIRE! We're in the throws of a long and drawn out heatwave. Last week had the highest temperatures, and of course it was the week we were on vacation.
Most days we were met with 100+ degree temps, but we didn't let that stop us from enjoying our beach time! We spent every day playing in the ocean and splashing in the pool. We walked the coast under starry skies and made the most of our time off. It was really fabulous to just relax and take it easy for a while.
We're back home now, back to the daily grind. Back to daily stresses and everyday problems. Back to reality. But you know what? Reality is not so bad. Things may be looking up for us and I'm feeling hopeful for the first time in a long time.
I might have some good news soon (cross your fingers!) and I'm looking forward to returning to grad school in August. I'm going to wrap up this degree as quickly as possible and move on to bigger and better things. In the mean time, send some positive energy and happy prayers my way and I'll be wishing you all the best!
