The Friday Five: Once More, with Feeling

Please forgive me if I'm still a little incoherent from yesterday's events. . . I'm all over the place today. In fact, I've got at least five different feelings going on:

1. Shock. As in, What did I just do?

2. Lightness. Going to school, and having to leave my job as a result, was a big burdensome secret I'd been carrying for quite some time.

3. Doubt. See also: Doubt, Self.

4. Gratitude. Many people have been very supportive--especially those of you who have been cheering this past week. I don't know how I got this far; I don't know how I'm managing to do this. But somehow it has been made possible, and I'm doing it. It is amazing and I am tremendously grateful.

5. Exhaustion. Pick any variety. I don't think I'm going to make it past eleven, for the first time in a long while. That's O.K.

Let's get this weekend started.

Thanks for the suggestions (pregnant with sinus headache from It Comes In Pints). I'll have to remember those for next time--the Clor-Trimeton knocked me out for two hours. It worked, but wow. I didn't even realize I was going to fall asleep until I was already out.

I had a crazy day at work so I didn't get the chance to respond to your last post. So, WHOOHOO!
I love Louisa May Alcott too!
Here's another favorite.
"I am not afraid of storms because I am learning to sail my ship." (That is from memory so it may be slightly off) God is teaching you how to sail your ship Kate. Pretty amazing.

I've been putting off registering for the LSAT. It's a step that I have to do (this weekend in fact!). But for some reason, gosh is it scary.

Get some rest, you deserve it!

Holly--you're welcome! Yeah, my doctor said those old-school "chlor" ones work the best but they put you out. Maybe the nutritional suggestions will help, I hope.

AC22--that's another awesome quote. Fantastic. Go for the LSAT; I'm cheering for you! :)
