Guess what it's March! I can officially say I get married next month :)
Whaaaaa? :)

I'm tired. I know there are people who work harder and sleep less than me
--but I'm still tired ha!
My roommate says I was talking all last night...I wonder if sleep talking makes sleep less effective?

That being said, I'm happy as a slinky on an escalator :)
(Anyone else love those commercials?)

On my mind today is getting things done. Specifically, how you can do things you couldn't do before with a bit of training. (Fortunately because I think this is the point, ha, but) I feel so much more prepared to do lots of different things after taking all of my college classes. I feel more comfortable in different job scenarios, I understand more about the world, etc.

I don't know if I ever imagined I would feel skilled and competent in specific situations.

This has made me reflect on the fact that, really, if we want to accomplish something, we can. We have to put in the training and practice!

This seems like sort of a silly epiphany--every little kid show spouts the fact that if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish it. And yet I still saw people in professional positions (or, quite frankly, most grown ups) as intimidating, talented special-cases.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still impressed by their talents and intense work they do. But now, I'm less stunned by their qualities and more impressed with the fact that they honed the skills to get to that point.

So, to echo all those kid shows out there--if you have a dream to be/do something, do it! You can train, you can practice, you can learn. And once you get there, start working for new goals and dreams :)

Let's call this post Rambling of a Tired Woman.

Have a sunny day!



  1. Soooo i had this super long post aaand my dumb phone deleted it. Dumb.
    Anyways, let me try this again. I love it when you ramble.
    Also, i needed to hear this post! Well, read technically haha. I feel as though i have been having a hard time learning Swedish lately, i have been stuck in this huge rut i guess you could say? I have a hard time not comparing myself to those other Americans that have been here 5-10 years and have the language down.. Because they have studied it. I am still in the process of learning, and i am super frustrated because i just want to know it already!! I am amazed at all those that can not study and just get it and move on too. Gah it is frustrating.. I need to learn patience. :) and maybe put more effort into studying ;)
    Love you soon to be Mrs. Kilmer
    (wow that is kinda weird to say!!! but awesomely realistic at the same time!)

  2. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and thanks for including my poem in your other blog, glad you enjoyed it.
    All the best,
