whew! may {or may not} have noticed that i have been somewhat out of the picture lately when it comes to blog life. turns out, when you neglect an entire semester of school, the last two weeks become infinitely valuable.

after many late nights in the city,
countless shots of espresso,
weeks of chipped nail polish,
30 pages of jordan's original thought,
and 2 fat exams,
i've hit my target.

in all honesty, the semester felt a bit like a routine on the uneven bars in gymnastics- i hopped on, did lots of spinning and turning and jumping and kicking, and somehow pulled off a pretty decent dismount. still awaiting the judges' scores though {aka my grades}. and for another moment of truth- i don't even care what the judges have to say. the semester took so much out of me {mentally, emotionally, spiritually} and i really feel like i have grown so much as an individual that my grades are just one element of the culmination of my Spring 2010 semester.

and today i slept until 9:45 {glorious}, took my sweet time getting ready, painted {okay, re-painted} my nails black {don't worry, it isn't's toes are definitely fire engine red}, and am now sitting at the cafe blogging, drinking a cappucino, and waiting for my boy. the perfect prescription for "the morning after" my insane semester.

so glad i've had you all to join me for the ride. i like to think of you as my teammates in the gymnastics meet that is life.

gotta go...i'm up on vault.
