How I'm going to stay sane...

I just started Grad School Year Two. The worst! This is the year people gain 50 pounds, or lose 50 pounds, or lose their hair, or gain a therapist (no shame, just saying). It has very great potential to be very very rough. And Grad School Year One had such harrowing experiences as Pneumonia! Snowed In! All The Late Night Sewing In The Land! Wicked Tendonitis! I've already had such lovely Year Two experiences as Build a Vest in a Day! Stay Late On Friday of a Three Day Weekend Sewing for Saturday! Spending First Saturday On a Film Shoot!

So...what am I going to do about it? Take care of myself physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

YOGA! I do yoga, on
I do yoga first thing in the morning because if I don't, I won't. I've done this for a week and my achey hips feel better and my tendonitis doesn't seem as bad.
Also, food. I'm going to eat it, three times a day. This was a resolution from last year of undergrad, and it's a good one.

SCRIPTURE STUDY! after yoga? 30 minutes of Isaiah.
Also, Institute every Wednesday night.
Also, church, every week and all the things.

NO MEN, for the semester, at least. Having a partner would make all this much easier, but I've been realizing that for the past two years the ups and downs of searching for a partner have not been great for my emotional health. I need a break. I'm on a boy diet. Not looking, not interested, leave me alone, but let's be friends!
Hobbies! I got a Kindle so I can read! And I'll go to derby and do other social things.
Friends! I have them, I love them, I want to be better friends with them. Old friends, new friends, friends are where it's at!

So that's the plan, and don't worry men of the world, maybe I'll get back in the spirit when I graduate and have more time to deal with the shenaniganery of dating.
