OH. MY. GOSH. Guys, my grad school semester is FINALLY over!! I’ve been through the ringer this quadrimester / semester, but I feel like I’ve also gotten quite a bit done. Now? It’s time to look forward and dish on all my AMAZING summer goals. Self-care, lots of sleep, gourmet cooking, and of course, lots and lots and LOTS of writing. It’s all coming up in today’s journey log.
