Welcome, September, and greetings from Hurricane Hermine!
The university closed today due to the tropical storm (now turned Hurricane). While our neighboring county, which is closer to the coast, has been getting a good brunt of the storm's bands, our little Tampa suburb has been getting a whole lot of nothing. I'm talking overcast skies and maybe a half inch of ran. I'm still hoping for high winds and some thunderstorms, because I absolutely relish in this kind of weather. Sigh.
So it's safe to say September is starting off with a bang, and I couldn't be happier to greet her with open arms. Unfortunately, Florida and Fall do not really go hand in hand, as humidity is still awful as ever and the temperatures aren't likely to drop below 90...but a girl can dream, right? I'm already planning on ordering my first pumpkin spice latte before clinic training tomorrow morning, and I'm on the hunt for the perfect fall scented candle.
August had a lot going on for me. I went to pool parties, and beach parties, and tried my best to partake in all things summertime. I watched a whole lot of Gilmore Girls. I also finally started my grad program, and I met a whole new group of friends that will be fighting (and loving) this academic battle with me. My life has changed, and I'm still alive to tell the tale!
So with that, helloooo September. Hello to my first session with my very first client, undoubtedly becoming overwhelmed with required readings and treatment plans, and clinic work. Hello to even more Gilmore Girls (sorry, Ryan). Hello pumpkin spice everything (sorry not sorry) and the beginning of the end of the year. Crazy to think, right?
