Happy New Year-ish!

Wow, can you all tell I had a crazy last semester of graduate school?! I haven’t blogged since I wrote about Rayni in August! I hadn’t even noticed it had been so long.

Well I guess I should start with updating you all a little. The biggest update being that I finally graduated! I am officially Kristina, MAE, EdS. :)

Here I am about to cross the stage:

Getting ready to cross the stage!


And of course I had to decorate my motor board with a quilt block:


Graduation was definitely a bittersweet feeling. It feels good to be done with school and to be able to relax a little bit before finding a job. I’ve been able to focus on taking care of myself and doing what I want, which I haven’t been able to do in a really long time. 

Example number one, I’ve started to cook dinner at home instead of picking up some fast food on my way home from my internship or school.

Pasta, chicken, with olive oil and herbs


Example number two… I’ve stopped biting my nails! It’s been a whole three weeks since I last bit them. Sad to say this is actually a major accomplishment for me.

But… I miss school and my friends. I miss having a place that I have to be everyday and stuff to do to keep me busy. Also, I just miss working and being around kiddos. I’m pretty lucky to be able to say how much I miss being in counseling sessions and how excited I am to start working. I think being a counselor just fills a part of me that I’m not able to fill with anything else.

Even though I haven’t been blogging, I have been doing a lot of quilting. I’ll be updating my blog with pics of what I’ve been working on over the next few weeks.

Always find the Beauty in the Blocks,
