Summer so far

So, just when I got on a role and made it a goal to continue writing I happened to lose all motivation.

So far this summer has been fairly bland. George has been gone for 3 weeks, I read one of the books on my list (The Secret History, I highly recommend it), started organizing my closet (made it through the dresses!), and worked my butt off in the office. Luckily work has been really busy and crazy interesting so that has kept me distracted from missing my hubby.

Unfortunately, I have not made much progress with HP in Arabic...took me about 30 minutes to get through one sentence...may have to cut that goal back. I also have apparently developed a little shopping problem which is not helping my goal of saving to take an online course through Oxford University.

Speaking of Oxford, that is a little bit of a sore topic for me lately. I recently saw on facebook that two acquaintances of mine will be heading there in the fall for graduate school and immediately felt a strong twinge of jealousy/disappointment that I am not on the road there myself anytime soon. I am at a strange point in my life where I happen to have an amazing job that I love that has tremendous opportunity for growth and could very well be my ultimate career but I also have strong desires to go back to school for a graduate degree. I really regret that I didn't get a degree during the last three years since I graduated from UCSB but, alas, what's done is done. Hopefully at one point there will be an opportunity for me that makes sense but for now I am actually thrilled with my current job and need to focus on what I have rather than what I could have had.

Speaking of what I have...check out this amazing drawing I received in the mail yesterday from George's brother's girlfriend!

She got the image from this picture, one of my favorites from the big day.
