Summer Time

Since the wedding craze is finally over I have thoroughly enjoyed some time off. We have just been laying low and taking it easy. Basically enjoying the fact that our weekends are not already filled with plans.
Tyler and I have both registered for the Fall semester... it will be the first semester of his bachelors and my last. Looks like my goal of graduating with honors this year is going to happen, which I have to admit I am kind of sad about. Graduating just seems very bittersweet to me right now. The idea just kind of weirds me out. School has been a part of my life for almost 20 years. Now I know why people just become perpetuating students... it feels strange to close that chapter when it has been such a long and important one. Being a student is just one of my many roles/identities, but with out it I would not be the person I am today. I am really going to miss it. But although I will be done with my bachelors I plan to attend Photography classes in the spring and continue to learn and develop more skills and talents so the student in me can relax a little.
I started my summer class last week. So far it is really interesting. I am learning all about Nutrition so it is all very useful. It has made me realize how much my body needs good fuel for all of the tasks that it needs to carry out everyday. After my incessant reading the last two weeks I wonder how so many people stay alive when they don't eat right, smoke and drink. The body is truly a magical thing.
So my summer days are mostly filled with work or studying. Some dates, beach trips and weekend vacations are being squeezed in here and there so we are still enjoying ourselves.
Photo blogs from the many activities of June/July soon to come!
