Nothing bad has happened in the two days that it's been October but man is there a lot ahead.
Between four different events taking place in my College, a few big meetings and career fairs and having to say goodbye to our amazing Dean that's retiring Oct. 31, work is going to be a crazy place.
On top of that, Relay for Life is in full swing even though the event won't take place until May 1-2, 2015. We have a lot of pre-planning to do and (if I'm honest) a lot of changes that have come down from the American Cancer Society are really affecting our event. I am seriously displeased with some of the event layout changes, modifications to our committee structure, and how the event will now be handled. When I first agreed to be a co-chair for Relay, I was working at the brewery where I left every day at 3pm and didn't have to even think about work when I left, but now with my more-involved and busier position at ECU, Relay is going to be a lot more difficult (especially considering that I will be having a baby some time around the kick-off for 2015). Thankfully I have an amazing side-kick, my friend Caroline, for Relay and I am still thankful to be part of such a great cause... even if the corporate side is taking some of the fun out of it.
I am also not happy with NC weather right now. It is hot. Granted, it is still the very beginning of October, but dag on it I want to wear comfy dresses with maternity tights and boots, scarves and big sweaters over skinny jeans/leggings not still be wearing my spring-y maternity stuff!! Get with the program weather, I want it in the high 60s, low 70s!!
On the plus side, October also has a lot of happiness. We have homecoming at ECU this weekend, "Sawyer Weekend" next weekend, and then the very next weekend I am going to see "Gone Girl" with my friends Hope & Kate. Not to mention Halloween and possibly this baby being born around the end of the month.
So, you may be only getting a sporadic post from me this month, but I promise not to completely drop off the blog train!
