Although I am really enjoying my classes this semester, I am definitely starting to feel that middle-of-the-semester bogged down, can't see the light at the end of the tunnel feeling. And it's happening a little early this time. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that the amount of weekly homework is more than a little overwhelming, evidenced by the fact that I have spent countless Saturday nights this semester at home doing homework. Go me. That's ok. I'm learning a lot. And I'll appreciate a little break at the end of this semester like never before.
But... Every now and then, I have to close my eyes, take a few deep breaths, and go to my Happy Place. I'm sure you could all easily guess what that is:
Let's just say it involves me, the beach, and a good book.
So, when I start to feel stressed or overwhelmed, or whatever, I have a cup of Lighthouse Cafe coffee in my Sanibel Bean coffee cup, and think about the sun and the breeze and the fine white sand. And for a few minutes, all is right with the world...
What's your Happy Place?
p.s. Mine has some serious competition:
