I love Epsom salt baths.

I can’t believe I haven’t posted since September. Sorry about that. A lot has contributed to my absence. Mainly, on top of being super busy, I just haven’t felt like writing.

But the semester is over now. Tonight’s my first night back in Georgia. So I’ll have plenty of free time to post now. Woo! I guess I should get y’all updated then.

So school.
I’ve gotten all my final grades in except for one. All A’s so far. I’m expecting my last grade, fingers crossed, to be a B.

All of my classes were good this year, except for my history class, which is the class I’m praying I make a B in. I have determined that history just isn’t really my thing. Too many dates and too many people.

Plus the final exam for that class was killer. On top of doing multiple choice questions, a map portion, and an identification section, we were expected to write 2 full length essays!! In an hour and 45 minutes no less!! I’m sorry, but if you want me to do all that, AND write 2 awesome essays, I’m gonna need more time. I actually feel pretty good about the exam. It’s only the second essay I’m really worried about. I didn’t have time to plan out my thoughts or evidence, and to be honest, I didn’t really know the answer to the prompt, so there was some major BS-ing going on. I’m just praying for a B. If I get a B in that class, I’ll be happy.

All of my other classes were great though. Turkish was Turkish, so I didn’t have any problems there. My English class was great and I did awesome on my final presentation. I did great on my translation studies paper and entomology was easy. The final wound up not even counting in that class because I had such a good grade.

So yeah, not a bad semester, but I sure am glad it’s over with. I’ve never had a finals week so intense. But next semester, I’ll be taking Turkish again, a class on the planets, intro to world literature, a class on sex and gender in the ancient world, and French 101. I’m excited about next semester. I think all of my classes will be really fun.

I’ve also started preparing to rent my own apartment next year. We’re gonna get all that straightened out while I’m home for christmas. I can’t stand living in the dorms and I’m super excited to live on my own, off campus, next year. No roommate to worry about, I’ll be able to cook my own food, it’ll be great I think. I’ve got several apartments already picked out, but I haven’t looked at any of them yet. The public season for the main ones I’m looking at doesn’t start until January 11th, so I have to wait. Fingers crossed though that I find the perfect apartment without too much difficulty. And that everything works out money wise because we’re planning on paying for my apartment out of pocket.

Me and my mom talked briefly about that tonight. She estimated it’ll cost $1000 a month for me to live off campus, but I think her estimate is too high. That’s all based on my spending this year and hypothetical utility bills. Living in an apartment will cut down on my spending costs because I won’t be eating out so much. And there are ways (I’m prepared to sacrifice) to make utility bills lower.

But yeah. I’m planning on staying in Columbus, basically year round. I want to get an off campus job this summer on top of my on campus job when next school year starts up. I’m going to pay for rent and possibly some other stuff if I can. I’m prepared (well, working on it) and I think everything will work out.

I’m sure those of you (if you do exist) that care about my meager life for some reason, want to know about me and my ex. And I can honestly say, things are good. I feel like our relationship has reached a point of balance and comfortability. You know, I’ve accepted that we’re not together and I’m okay with that. Maybe well get back together one day, maybe we won’t. But things are really good.

I’ve finally reached a place of emotional stability. I’m not constantly swinging back and forth between extremes anymore. Yes, I still do fantasize about us being together, but that fantasizing doesn’t send me into a depression like it used to. I think I can honestly say I’m happy with the current situation. It may not be ideal. Others may think its not right or not healthy or whatever, but I’m pretty content.

I’ve found lowering my standards has helped. Haha. I’ve stopped expecting so much from my ex. Maybe he’s not acting the way I want or imagined originally, but I can’t control him, and that’s okay. He talks to me when he talks to me. When see each other when we see each other. There’s not many expectations or pressure. And he’s still there for me. I mean, he took me to the airport this morning. He’s taking care of my plants over break. Things are good. We’ll see where the future takes us.

So yeah, that’s my update for now. That’s all I can think of that’s major. Perhaps I’ll have something more interesting to post tomorrow. But basically, I just wanted to say, I’m back!!


Leaving Tomorrow

So tomorrow I am leaving for Columbus!! The car is basically all packed up save for a few last minute things. I got my hair re-dyed today and painted my fingernails. Haha. 2 very important things crossed off my list.

Tomorrow I have to wake up at 5:30 so we can leave at 7 for our 12 hour car ride. I’m toying with the idea of just not going to bed! Haha. I mean, I go to bed around 3:30. We’re talking about 2 hours of sleep. Is it even worth it??

Yeah probably. I would feel weird not sleeping. It would be like my new day never started.

But I’m excited to finally be going back to Columbus. It doesn’t feel like it’s time to leave already! But it is. In about 4 hours I’ll be on my way.

I’m excited to see my friends. I’m excited for my classes. I’m excited to start a brand new year as a brand new person. I’m even excited to meet my roommate! (Albeit that excitement is mixed with much hesitation).

But on another note, I was thinking again today about a possible double major with history. I’m really just not sure. I really do like history, I’m just not sure if a history major would fulfill my needs.

I still feel totally committed to my interest in the Ottoman Empire and language. But I also have a side interest in the history of ancient civilizations. Part of my dream career involves consulting and studying old stuff dug up by archeologists!

So I don’t know. I think it may just be my fear of committing to a major that’s talking. I’m just so afraid, with all of my interests, what if I don’t pick the right one??

No joke, if I had all the time and money in the world, I’d major in microbiology, molecular genetics, zoology, anthropology/archeology, comparative literature, comparative religion, history, something with farm animals, plant stuff….what else am I leaving out??

I have too many interests!!

But anyways, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system…going back to Columbus yay!

I feel like I had something else to talk about tonight, but I can’t remember what it is. Oh well.

I did order my textbooks for my English class today, because the teacher emailed us about the books. I’m waiting on all the other classes until after I find out what is required. Doing that saves you from wasting money on books you might not need or use.

But yeah…I’m tired if rambling now. Tomorrow I’ll be blogging from Columbus. Hooray!!

Goodnight. :)
