In the midst of cramming for the fall semester, my new favorite hobby is to forage local flowers and arrange them into bouquets on my dining room table. πŸ’
γ€°
It sure beats facing the cold reality of how much I have left to do and how far behind I am already. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Working in the herb garden this morning.
γ€°
I feel awful how bad I let some of these herbs overgrow. And the lack of water/attention that has been given to my tomato plant.
γ€°
But at least my marigolds are still blooming. ☺️

When your Barista life collides with your knitting life.
γ€°
Or basically what happens when you bring your #fringefieldbag to work, prop your feet up for an hour, and keep working on that Lila top down sweater you started back in February. πŸ™ˆ

It's been awhile since I shared a #bassbreak with you all. Teaching myself Christian Woman by Type O Negative this morning.
γ€°
Going to keep working on getting the strength back in my plucking fingers, but I think this is a decent first lesson. (Even if it is the easiest part of the song 😝)

Feeling grounded and overwhelmed at once.

May write more on this tomorrow but for now, I'm just taking a moment to pause and L O O K U P.

Just received this motivational (and super cute) print from my mom in the mail. And some full moon vibes to boot! 🌝
γ€°
Thank you for always loving and supporting my endeavors, no matter how big or how small. I love you. πŸ’•

Today I worked at Bloom and planted my herb garden instead of working on my dissertation proposal on this gorgeous sunny day.
γ€°
I am not regretting these decisions one bit. βœ¨β˜€οΈπŸŒ±βœ¨

Portrait of a Doctoral Student who is still desperately working on her dissertation proposal but just got through a two-hour site visit with IRB and didn't fuck up too badly.
γ€°
Giving myself a pat on the back but now it's time to #workit until this proposal draft is done and sent off for review.

Just completed my first day of Instructor Training for the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program. I will be here for nearly a week learning a new pedagogical curriculum to add to my teaching toolbox.
γ€°
Feeling a little uninspired and frustrated towards academia at the moment, today was a helpful reminder that the mold can be broken and reshaped to fit both our needs as instructors, and our students' needs. That profound change is possible through community-based education.
γ€°
But after our first session, I am feeling hopeful and excited for the week ahead, and look forward to where this training may take me in the future.

After waiting a five long agonizing months, I received word today that my manuscript was rejected for publication. Again. While one of the reviewers saw underlying value in my work, the second reviewer's words cut me like a knife. I tried to not take it so personally. I tried to not shed any tears or let myself get too worked up. Nonetheless, a few tears were shed.
γ€°
I know that it's common to get rejected. I know that it happens to everyone, and it happens all the time. I know that many scholars we look up to and model our work after have had their own work rejected multiple times. I am also fully aware of the toxicity surrounding the publication process. Despite all this, I let it get to me. I felt a surge of anxiety when I labeled myself as "The Only Grad Student In My Cohort Without A Publication" and felt my worth sink like a stone. I am firmly against the saying "Publish or perish," but sometimes the pressure can feel all too real and encompassing.
γ€°
However, I've got too much to do, too much to say, and too much important work to put out into the world to let this one rejection get me down. While the sting still feels a little fresh, I'm going to learn from it, take it in stride, and move on.
γ€°
This is a new level of personal growth for me and I'm going to choose to revel and reflect upon this moment instead.

Remembering to say "Hello" to my unmade bed, my messes, and my imperfections a little bit more each day.
γ€°
I am more behind on my dissertation proposal than I want to be but instead of wallowing in self-doubt, I am getting more and more okay with spending time in these uncomfortable spaces and sitting through them.
γ€°
Hello, unmade bed. How are you today?

Since I deleted my old IG accounts, including my fitness one (RIP @buffscully!), I've noticed I don't really share much in the way of fitness anymore. Which is a shame because I LOVE working out and I have met so many incredible women through the IG fitness community.
γ€°
This is my friend, Annie (@singerswings). We originally met through IG last summer, but once she reached out to let me know that she is also a graduate student at MSU, we met up last August while she had to be on campus for her online program. She's back for her May on-campus session and we've hit the gym up two days in a row!
γ€°
Annie is a constant source of inspiration for me and I admire how she grabs life by the horns and owns it. She's also a great lifting partner and encourages you to get out of your own head and lift heavier than you ever thought possible. I will miss you when you leave this week but I'm so glad we met online and IRL as the kids say. 🀣😘
γ€°
In honor of #mmm17 and all the amazing people I've met through the IG craft community as well, Annie and I want to show off what else about us is ME MADE: Our muscles. πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

As I am passionate about fitness for graduate students (and of course, all people in general), I will make sure to post more on this topic and offer tips and tricks for your workout. I know we don't always feel like we have time to workout, but making time for your body and your health is one of the best things you can do to get through your program. Happy to discuss in more detail or talk through any doubts or concerns you have. We're all in this together - why not have a little fun with it? 😝

My husband did the grocery shopping so I could get some academic work done on my day off. Then he brought back one of my favorite local beers for me to enjoy while on a writing break.
γ€°
What a guy.

It's been a good week for books.
γ€°
BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME and THE WARMTH OF OTHER SUNS were delivered to my local @cadlibrary for pick-up.
γ€°
BECOMING WISE and WHEREAS are to add to my own personal collection. I aim to read these at night instead of scrolling my phone or scouring Reddit for lame scary stories (True story).
γ€°
And IN THE SHELTER is for my mom. I wanted to grab a copy for myself but this particularly seller only had 1 in stock at the time. Making that a top priority because I'd like to read this book alongside her and discuss during our weekly phone calls.
γ€°
And I know we grad students feel like we never get to "read for fun" so don't laugh at me for asking the following question, but:
WHAT ARE YOU READING THIS WEEKEND?
