My first weekend post-studying.
It was glorious.
I woke up and made scrambled eggs and toast with peanut butter + apple pie jam. Lots and lots of coffee.
I spent the morning preparing for the highlight of my summer- diabetes camp! This will be my third year going, and I am so excited. I’m taking on some more responsibilities this year, which makes me a little nervous, but I know it will all work out.
I’ll miss the delicious lunches. That’s the house salad with hummus + bag a chips.
Afterwards, I picked up a Costco membership (woo-hoo) and then my friend Kelly and I came to my house to chill out for a little.
Columbia has outdoor concerts throughout the spring and summer and I finally made it to one that night.
I love any live music really, but this band was particular good- they had a Mumford and Sons feel. Luckily the band is from Columbia, so hopefully I can see them again. I left the concert wanting more – more in terms of discovering my local music scene.
The concert was held right on the river, perfect for a scenic walk.
This past weekend I spent a lot of time thinking about how much I enjoy this freedom of not being tied to my books. I like that I can fill my day how I’d like and not feel the burden of “I should be studying” hanging over me.
For so long I’ve avoided spontaneity in fear I’d miss something more important. Now I’m feeling like I may miss something by not being spontaneous. This first week of transitioning from student to career woman has prompted me to think about where I want to put my time and focus. I’m still figuring it out, but one thing I know for sure is I don’t want to be boxed in or overburdened with should-be-doing-this thoughts.
^Speaking of Tolkien, it may be a good time to finally read The Lord of the Rings!
