Limited Resources

There comes a time in your life, when there just isn't enough time in the day for everything you have jammed into your life. At this point, the fun process of prioritizing comes into play. Which friends do you allocate time for? And why is it that friends are sometimes the only thing negotiable in your to do list? It feels extremely sad that relationships with other human beings do not have the same urgency of other items on our lists.

Culinary Delight

I found it extremely difficult to get motivated to do anything on my day off, so I chose to do things not on my to do list for the day. First I went to the grocery, then picked up a friend and went searching for essential oils and was only minorly distracted by cranberry maple granola. Then we went to my house and made gazpacho, hummus, a spinach salad, pork chops and brown rice. Then we made a peach raspberry pie. Now that I can say that I didn't blow my whole day I can go to bed with a clear conscience. It has been a while since I cooked for the sheer joy of cooking. Ah, a glimpse of what my life could be like...

Graduation Rant

So I decided to graduate this summer instead of next January because I don't think I want to go to Miami a week away from my due date. I submitted the change of program paperwork and my application for graduation which was due May 29th. I believe I had all of this turned in on Wednesday. Sunday night I get a 'mail undeliverable' email saying That my application for graduation had been returned to me because a Kaplan email address marked an email coming from a Kaplan student account as spam. Now I can't resubmit the paperwork because the date is past and they won't answer their phone! What do I do?
