Building the Book Pile #263

Welcome to Building the Book Pile!  A Weekly meme inspired by Stacking the Shelves

Hello Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people! 

So ... this past week was a weird one! So many highs and lows. I am having emotional whiplash.

Lets start on a high -
First off, last weekend I went to my Beginner Motorcycle Training course to learn how to ride a motorcycle... and guess what?! I PASSED!!! I got that little card that tells the DMV I am good to go, so this past week I ran over there and got the endorsement. SO EXCITED! However, all that being said - riding a motorcycle is still terrifying to me (lol) so I am not sure how much I will be doing it, but I am proud of myself for trying something outside of the box (for me) and completing my goal.

Then a low -
In my last post I mentioned that I am supposed to be in VA with the hubs for a wedding and visiting family, but sadly our pet sitter fell through and I sent Andy down on a plane instead and I have been home just having a stay-cation - still nice but not as fun. You would think I would be using this time to get caught up on anything productive but I have been cleaning and marathoning movies instead. All the Twilight movies in a day? - SURE why not!

Then back again -
I have been thinking about going back to school for a while now, so about a month ago I applied to be a part of an online masters program in Psychology. I got my BS in Psych but then got a MA in Humanities later so I have been thinking about pursuing the Psych thing more. This week Southern NH University accepted me into the program, I start in October 😳. Exciting and again terrifying. Hopefully I am ready, but back to school I go ... not going to lie... I am most excited for SCHOOL SUPPLIES!!!

Like I said, it was a weird week.
