When our car broke down in February, I freaked out a little. When JD's laptop (our only one) powered down for the last time this weekend, I freaked out a little more. Things we need a lot keep seeming to crash. I feel like I am going to crash.

Being an adult is hard sometimes. It's hard to manage rent, phone bills, and unexpected break-downs. Especially when you're working a lot and getting paid a little.
And by little, I mean not at all.
Thank you, internship.

I have 4 weeks left until graduation. I haven't been going to classes this semester. . .but I sure have been learning a lot. Of course, I'm learning about treatment goals, steps in recovery, symptoms of depression, how to keep good notes, when and how to process, ways to be creative, how to build families, and why relationships are essential. But, more than that, I'm learning how to depend on the Lord, how to let go of things I can't control, how to lean on my husband, and how to take care of myself.

I'm learning how to avoid crashing. I'm learning to enjoy life, and not just endure it.
And I have just a little hunch that this learning won't stop at graduation. . .
