I swear I’m alive

Where have I been since December?

I totally planned on posting about my new planner as soon as I got it all set up and ready. But then school happened.

Yes, school. I returned to post-secondary school this January to start a year-long program for a Medical Office Assistant certificate. The certificate will allow me to work in hospitals, doctor’s offices, and alternative health clinics (massage therapy, chiropractors, etc).

I’m really excited about this new path I’m on, and I think the career I’m going for is a great fit for me. That said, school has been grueling.

I worked my butt off this past semester. It’s true. I have no more butt. It totally paid off: I got straight A+s in all 5 of my courses, and made it onto the Dean’s List. This will mean good things when I go searching for a job.

I have the summer off and then I’m back in school in September, with another 5 courses, this time five days a week instead of four.

My planner will be getting very heavy use.

It got very heavy use in Winter Semester too, of course, but since the semester ended I haven’t been doing much. I’ve been sleeping and working as many freelance hours as I can to make rent. But mainly sleeping. I haven’t written much of anything down in my planner, and the last habit tracker I did was in April. (I have been sticking to my habits though! Very proud of myself there.)

Honestly, I can’t believe it’s the end of June already. This year — and life in general, honestly — is going by so fast. My mom has a huge milestone birthday at the end of this month (70!!), I’m turning 32 in August, and my husband hits 37 two weeks after my birthday.

The summer is already half-over, and I am way behind in so many things.

What I’m not behind in, though, is procrastination with crafting. Ok, to be fair, a couple of things I made were birthday gifts for my mom. But otherwise…yup, completely avoiding other things that need to be done via crochet and knitting.

Well. There are worse ways to procrastinate.

Eventually,
Katje
