Stolen from The Happiness Project blog (again):

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.”
- Epicurious

Love this. So important for putting life into perspective, which is precisely what I needed this weekend. Saturday I was completely stressed because I had to study all day and my lack of studying earlier in the week was weighing on me in the form of guilt and stress and being mad at myself. I was pretty unhappy all day. And why? I have so much in my life that I once only hoped for. Grad school is a gift, an opportunity, not a burden.

Another thing that has been brightening my days is this new blog I've discovered: It's mostly about interior design, which is not something I am really passionate about necessarily, but I find reading about certain fields or activities from someone who is really into it very compelling. Almost anything is worthwhile of interest, it just takes other people to show it to you sometimes. Now that I have narrowed down apartment choices for next year, I am loving the inspiration this blog gives me to do some cheap chic interior design in our new place, wherever it may be.

I have also learned to appreciate fashion thanks to Tom and Lorenzo's blog: They also blog Mad Men--what's not to love?

Now, I have my last final (YAY!) in 7 hours. It's officially study time.

Over and out.
