Weekend Reads: Pencils Sharpened (aka battery pack charged)
Well, school starts for me next week and I'm hustling and bustling to get everything done in time so I can take a week off of work (while still checking emails!) and be fully present for all of the classes and new people I'm about to meet. I ordered a new notebook, some pens, I have a packet of mints all picked out for my purse. I'm getting a haircut on Saturday and need to pick out my first day of school outfit... EEEK. I forget how to do all of this stuff! I have a nervous flutter. I'm excited, but nervous, but excited. Wish me LUCK! I need it!
