Well I got into this WONDERful habit of leaving my glasses on my bed next to me, letting them fall to the floor and (inevitably) covered by something, then searching in squinted desperation for them the next morning.
And, of course, the habit caught up with me one day when my “morning hunt” ended with a nice CRUNCH as I stepped on top of my winter coat that was strategically covering my beloved purple and cheetah printed glasses. Welp.
Warning: this is a cliche, inspirational, “it’s-the-start-of-something-new” post. And I have no shame!😀
So much happened last year but with grad school I felt like last year was a blur. It wasn’t an easy time at all. Being far away from friends and family, dealing with Arizona’s cruel summer and poor air quality (I had to get a prescription nasal spray!!), and of course the stress and exhaustion of getting a master’s degree.
I decided to stay in Arizona and work on my master’s thesis this summer. I must say I was really nervous to spend my summer here, I was told by a friend that grew up here that a summer in the Phoenix valley was like living in “a wasteland.”
