Rambling is about to happen...

October is definitely my busiest month of the semester (maybe that's how it is for all grad students but I don't know). Last week was a shit storm but I got everything done. This week isn't as bad, but still have to have things done so I'm drinking spiced chai tea to help keep me up. I don't know if this is a bad idea but something had to be done...

They don't tell you in grad school that while assistantships are great because yay funding, working 20 hours a week and managing your work load is also hard. I worked last Monday then had to tell my supervisor that I needed to the rest of the week because I had 4903940 things due. I'll be making up those hours but man it was worth taking those 2 days off.

Oh and I think I am seeing someone? So this weekend, after the crazy week I had, I went to see someone from Tinder a few hours away (met in public and all that). It went well I suppose because we are still talking lol. It feels weird to me though because I didn't think I was going to be seeing someone so soon after starting my program. He asked if he could come over for Thanksgiving week and while I think it was early to make those kinds of plans (we had literally just met this weekend), I have to admit I'm excited about it. My friend says it's early and I agree with her but I feel good about what's going on right now. Am I wrong to be allowing this? I feel like I just go with things sometimes and I'm trying to be more aware about what's going on. I've never dated anyone like him before and even if things don't work out, I feel like I'm making progress in my dating choices. I like how he asks me questions and has follow- up questions when I tell him personal things. Sounds so simple and easy but with my dating history it's kind of a miracle...

Anyway, how are you all doing? I'm trying to post here and keep up with everybody 'cause I miss y'all. :)
