It's amazing how much a hug fills your spirit. That physical contact can be just what you need.
I went to a wedding yesterday with K. Beautiful bride, fabulous family, amazing occasion. I love weddings.
I went for three reasons: 1‚ the wedding, of course! 2, time with K - always a plus. and 3, friends and hugs.
I suppose my friends thought I was joking when I said I had decided I was going to collect hugs at the reception. But I was completely serious. I haven't really seen anyone in ages and I doubt I will see many people for a while again. I am slogging through this quarter and oh so tired of it. I do like the teaching part mostly, but I am tired of jumping through hoops.
The latest hoop I've encountered? The class I need? to graduate? in MAY? that I was supposed to take in the spring? It's not being offered. Even though it's been offered in the fall and spring for years?
Let that sink in.So I called my advisor and she's figuring it out. Okay... So hugs were just what I wanted, needed, and thankfully, my friends are very willing to give them too.Happy hugs to you if you need one!
