I’m sitting on the couch, looking at my Christmas tree decorated with ornaments from all of my travels. I’m reflecting on life and love, and what it means to be merry.
I just submitted my final assignment for my course, and now I get to enjoy 7 blissful weeks off before I start another 5 week course. I’m almost done my program! I have 5 courses left before I start my placement as a psychologist. Isn’t that exciting? In theory I could finish very soon, but I like taking 1-2 months off between courses, otherwise I’ll burn out. It’s a lot to manage OIC, work, my daughter, school, etc. Too much sometimes!
This holiday season I sponsored two families through the Caring and Sharing Exchange program, and helped raise items for a Christmas hamper for a Syrian refugee family through my daughter’s daycare. There is so much more I could do, so many more ways I could use my privilege to help those in need. I do my best, while saving for my own future and my daughter’s future. It’s a hard balancing act.
I’ll be away from December 20 to January 2, and then away again from January 13 to January 22. I’m heading to Mexico with my daughter! I can’t wait! I’m going to a lovely all-inclusive resort. Very exciting.
Alright, I’ll end here for now. I’m getting drowsy and want to rest…
Much love to you all!
