Over a cup of tea: On Wednesdays

Wednesdays are the busiest days of my week. And because it is the middle of the week, things tend to unravel. I run out of lunch ideas for the kids' school lunches, I read (skim) research papers at the last minute while waiting on the soccer field, I try to plan a blog post in advance but the blog to me is such an impulsive and personal habit that that doesn't work get the idea. Some people ask me what it is I am trying to prove by going to grad school now (some sound skeptical, many are just curious and a few, resentful). I am always surprised that they don't know. It's about making myself happy and has nothing to do with anything else. So even though my life, on most days, looks like a tornado hit it, I have never been happier. I don't know what it is going to lead to but I wouldn't trade it in for anything. I am such a cautious person and adventure is really not my cup of tea (totally didn't mean to bring tea into it!), so if I can step out of my comfort zone, I am sure you can too. Find what you want to do and go for it. And stay true to yourself.
I debated on whether I wanted to publish this post or if I should come up with a quick, albeit late, design-related post but it wouldn't be Once Upon A Tea Time if I didn't write whatever I felt passionate about. (I wrote something similar 6 months ago.) As I type this, it is still Wednesday afternoon and I am going to run down and grab some lunch, before I skim some more papers. See you later!
