As you guys know I got engaged in January of this year. Well, we finally tied the knot on August 9! I’m so happy all of that planning is over, and it resulted in the happiest day of my life. We went on a four day honeymoon right after, which was so much fun as well.
At the end of August, it came time for me to go back to school. I just transferred to a private California school, and after taking half a year off, it’s been quite the transition getting back into the school mentality. On top of all of that, I’ve gone back to work, and now I’m a married woman!
This year has brought on an insane amount of changes. It’s almost hard to believe that this is actually my life. I’ve been so busy, and so overwhelmed with work and homework, it’s been interesting trying to adjust. But despite all of the stress, I have never been so happy in my entire life. I’m married to and live with the love of my life. We have our own little family with us and our three (yes, THREE) cats in our own cute little apartment. Life is great.
That doesn’t go to say that there isn’t a difficulty in finding a balance. There are some days when I feel 0% motivation to take on the day. School is rough, but to go to work right after makes my days seem like an eternity. But I know I have to go to school in order to make my goal career a reality. And I know that I have to go to work in order to help my husband pay our bills at the end of each month.
It’s not easy, but I think in these situations, it’s important to always keep things in perspective. Choose your battles within yourself; choose what is actually worth stressing out over. Evaluate what you value most and prioritize accordingly. It’s important to always realize that though the problems may seem to big to handle, you are always capable of finding a way to overcome them.
It’s definitely a transition, but I’m loving every minute of it.
