Once Upon a Time it Was Sunny

How is it time to go back to school already?!  I’m so not ready!  I flew back to the East Coast over the weekend and school started again today.  Seeing the snow on the ground was trippy and it’s going to take some getting used to.  Basically, I’ve been drinking cup after cup of hot tea and trying not to get sick like so many of my friends are!  When it’s so cold like this, it’s nice to look at pictures taken in a warmer climate.

I really enjoyed seeing my family and friends over break, but it is also nice to be back at school and see all of my friends here and hear about their holidays.  I’ve only been back for one full day and I already feel like there is sooo much work to do!  The beginning of the semester is always hectic with trying to finalize my class and work schedule, so I’ll be glad when things settle into a routine.  How are you adjusting after being on holidays?  Now that school is back in session, I’ll be trying to post on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday schedule.  I think this way I’ll be able to post pretty regularly and have time to respond to comments and questions, while still keeping up with my schoolwork and jobs.

Thank you all so much for all the recent comments, especially about Pay it Forward 2011 (if you’re one of the first five you’ll be getting an email shortly)!  I’m really excited about this idea and it is so nice to have your support! :)  See you on Wednesday with another On Nnenna’s Needles!

P.S. If you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you in an email (see sidebar) or respond to you on twitter! :D

    Thank you! Yes, getting the sleeping schedule back on track is slow-going, but you must have real willpower to be able to wake up that early! :)

  • Bonnie

    No one is ever ready to go back to school. I had three weeks off, and I still dreaded this past Monday.
    On the bright side, that is a fabulous outfit!

    Gorgeous blog! It aways takes a while to adjust after the holidays, I only had a few days off but coming back to work and getting up at 5.30am was a struggle:( Thank you so much for the blog comment.

    Hello! I love the colours on the tunic that you have on! Well i like anything that has colour hues … so much so that i arranged my wardrobe according to colour hues. I stopped going school long time ago (*ahem) but i sure miss the days I am able to buy pretty stationery!
