Bits & Pieces – Kristina edition

Let’s be honest, haven’t most of these been Kristina editions?  She’s a pretty good pick-me-up.

I feel run down today. Neither my head or my heart are in school any longer. How do people survive grad school?? Masochists, the lot of them. I just want to be done and move onto the nightmare of facing my student debt (this statement is going to come back to haunt me, I know that).

My 30th birthday will be here before my undergrad diploma and no matter how many times people tell me “it’s just a number” or “you’re almost there,” I feel disheartened and wish I had started my post-secondary career a bit sooner. But I find it helps to look at these pictures and remind myself that I wouldn’t have met most of the most important people in my life had I followed a different timeline.

Ah, writing this has cheered me up a little.

Speaking of writing, my editorial internship at Western Living is going very well.  I’ll pull together a full portfolio, including print stuff once I’m done at the end of March, but in the meantime here is what I’ve been working on for the web!
