I think I’m finally settling into this semester. It hasn’t been easy, and I’ve finally realized that I actually DO need to spend the extra time reading and studying. But it’s also important to take some time for myself and my family. After three surprisingly awesome hours studying for my next science exam, I decided to ‘take the night off’ and watch a movie. It was amazing! Today I was up early and got to watch the teenager play Zelda while listening to a podcast. I’ll be settling back into homework this afternoon for a bit, but the short purposeful break was exactly what I needed.
