These fall season holidays are my favorites! Thanksgiving is almost here and I can't wait!

Angela is our international student that has been living with us since August.
Sanghee is one of the best study buddies a girl can have!
We finished up the day by walking around town, eating at our favorite BBQ place, and a double feature at the drive-in movies.
Looking forward to next year and feeling mighty grateful (am I showing my southern?) Devin has been around to enjoy life this fall.

We originally planned the trip as a cultural trip for our international student, but she found out she wouldn't be able to go that day. Devin's work schedule has been so nuts since we moved here and it has been so nice to have just have this semester together.
We ate pizza, pet all of the animals at the zoo, and checked all of the booths selling stuff. I'm looking forward to some more trips like this in the future :).

There have been times that I have been overwhelmed and there have been Professors that I feel are slightly inhumane with their work loads, but I feel so full of purpose right now. The people I have met are so interesting and the friendships have been so quickly made. I love what I'm learning and it has opened my mind to so many things I encounter on a daily basis.
My undergrad was about learning about myself and trying to understand the chaos that is adulthood, but with my grad school, I feel it's kind of different. Opposed to my undergrad, so many of the important things in my life are decisions I have already chosen. I'm not worried about who I will end up with because I'm married to Devin. I'm not worried about where we'll go after we graduate, because we have a mortgage. I was working two jobs the semester Devin and I were dating and first married and now? For the first time in my life, I don't have to work as a student and it is a totally different experience. I don't worry about my plan because I know I have Devin and God to help me with that.
My undergrad was essential, but graduate school? It feels like a little gift to me. A gift to just study and just really enjoy this opportunity. Already, it feels like it is flying by way too fast. For every bad experience in my life, I've had a good one, and this one is so good.
