relieving decision

I'm sorry I've been such a slacker lately with blogging.  This term of school has seriously been crazy.  The terms here are only 6 weeks and so when you're trying to fit in a semester's worth of work into 6 weeks, it gets a little busy.  most of my classes are 3 hours long and the homework is what's killing me.  I'm sure you're tired of hearing me rant about school, but that's seriously all I've been doing lately.  

But I have good news!  Last week I made a really important decision.  At the end of this term I was supposed to switch jobs and be the head of one of my professor's personal research labs.  Well, I decided to turn him down. It was a stress I don't need right now and I love the job I'm currently working in and I've been working there for almost two years now.  It was a really hard decision for me to make but Beau and I both felt it was the best decision and i seriously feel so much lighter! It's like that one major stress was just taken off my shoulders!

And now, summer is looking good! And what better way to start off my summer-attitude but with some delicious watermelon?

Don't mind if I do.

I'm taking summer classes and the term is 8 weeks long, which feels so fast to me- I can't imagine having 6 week terms - wow- you go girl! :)

And I'm so happy you are happy about your decision- I love when that happens- enjoy your watermelon! ;)

Yum!! That watermelon looks divine!

And that is such a relief, Candace! Glad you came to a decision- that really must have been so tough!

Sorry school is so overwhelming for you right now :/ I did a three week class that condensed a ten week quarter, and it was brutal. I feel your pain!

Way to go for turning the position down when you knew it wasn't right! Not a lot of people do that! I'm so glad you don't regret your decision either!
