So after having gone through a few moods today, I seem to have landed on confident by the end of the evening.  I have two study days before Friday, and I still need to work on my cards for the student affairs part, but by the end of the evening tonight, I was feeling pretty strong.  Now if I can hang onto that feeling for the next couple of days. 

I feel a little like I'm going to be let out of jail on Friday after day 2 of qualls are done.  I'm still going to have to keep up my good work patterns as I'm moving toward the dissertation phase, although oddly the dissertation isn't as intimidating for me as qualifying exams are.  I guess because it's a process and not a random high stakes test.  After Friday, I'll get to go back into the clay studio, and I can deal with my sad lavender plants in the front flower beds.  I need to work on organizing my studio.  My art has really been sort of squelched with quals prep, and I know that isn't good for me. 

I need to take the time to work on developing a meditation practice.  I need to read the Anxiety and Phobia Workbook in the next month.  I need to have taken at least a reasonable stab at it before my psych appointment in May.

Hell, I'm even looking forward to actually making dinner for the Bear on Tuesday nights when he is teaching his grad class instead of heating up Bertoli pasta dinners.

The Bear told his students about his traditional last class meeting at our house.  He said that one of them mentioned that his students said that he'd heard that his chili is legendary.  It's always fun to have the grad students stop by.... I mostly clean, facilitate conversation, and most importantly pick the music.

I do hope lj doesn't go the way of myspace....
