Jennifer Blake: The clock, my brain & other random thoughts.

The clock, my brain & other random thoughts.

March 13, 2014

This past weekend we changed the clocks and I have not adjusted well. Do I love the extra hour of sunlight? ABSOLUTELY. I crave the sun but losing that hour of sleep has made me cranky and tired. I feel like I'm barely hanging on this week, but tomorrow is Friday and I am grateful for that.

I have 2 weeks left of the my clinical at the Elementary School, I am going to miss is so much! The kids make me laugh and smile every single day and I love it. I start my last clinical of graduate school at the end of March and I would be lying if I said I was not having major anxiety over it, I am so so nervous. It is not a population I am comfortable working with and territory that I am not comfortable with, it will definitely be an experience I won't forget I'm sure. I just keep telling myself that it is only 12 weeks and the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer. I am SO ready to be out in the field working and not be a student anymore.

Last night and today we got hit with a rain and ice storm, I am completely DONE with winter, but I can't complain that I got a two hour delay this morning. My brain feels like a chaotic mess this week so the extra sleep was amazing. I miss the sunshine and warm air, I miss walking outside without a jacket, I miss the birds chirping, I miss flip flops and tank tops. I am so ready for Spring and Summer, I need some good ol' vitamin D.

Overall, I am a mess this week, which means it has overflowed into our house making it a mess, which means I feel stressed and overwhelmed and exhausted. I am ready for the weekend and a new week.

Wishing you a happy Thursday, friend.


  1. I need some serious sleep - totally feeling just like you this week, even though I've logged over 8 hours each night. Stupid time change!

    Hope the weekend gives us both a little extra sanity ;) xoxo
