Christmas Bells Are Ringing

Our house is all decorated for Christmas (and yes, this is an actual photo taken by my amazing photographer husband). It makes me so happy to see my cranberry wreath on the wall and smell our fabulous Salt City candle. The only problem is it also makes me want to sip away at hot chocolate and disregard my list of things to do. There is something about this time of year that always has me wanting to give up on school. Lately, I can become distracted by the lights on our Christmas tree for a full hour before I realize I haven't read a paragraph in my textbook. I can't wait for vacation!!! YEAH!!! I have decided I'm going to stop worrying about my student teaching experience and just enjoy the break. I can do anything for 3 months, even if it is the absolute hate. I went to talk to my practicum advisor and she told me to stop worrying about it. She thinks I will do fabulously and that I am just too stressed to realize that now. PLUS, I found out that my supervisor is one of my most favorite professors of all time. She will give it to me straight without making me cry. AND I know that she won't freak out if I cry, so that is even better. I'm going to start trying to have more positive thoughts about the whole thing. Wish me luck!

  1. Katie,

    That sounds so fabulous! I love Christmas decorations! We don't have ours up yet, but hopefully we will in the next two weeks. We have to clear some stuff out of our apartment first in order to have room for a tree. As far as student teaching, good for you! I know it is sooo hard but if anyone can do it you can Katie. You are amazing! Good luck and I think that is a great picture!

  2. I know what you mean, we almost bought a bookcase and it's a good thing we didn't. If we had that in our apt. there wouldn't be room for a tree! My advice is get them up ASAP- it makes life feel lovely =-) Thanks for the vote of confidence!

  4. We have this huge 63 inch T.V. that we got for free (it doesn't work) and we were going to fix it and rent it out to boys apartments and even had the boys who wanted it but never ended up saving up enough to fix it so now we are just going to sell it for however much we can in order to get a tree. Hopefully someone takes it soon! :-) I'm looking forward to decorating with Christmas music and then drinking egg nog and hot chocolate! That sounds perfectly heavenly!
