First of all, WE SURVIVED MERCURY RETROGRADE WOOT!

I mean technically we’re still in the shadow period for about another week so things might still be wonky but less significantly so across the board. I know my MRx had some notable moments in it, some of which were actually really positive. It’s also the end of eclipse season so I mean, this is the point where we take a look at what we’ve learned and put forth the lessons into action and growth. So all in all, good things today!

In less witchy news, this outfit is what happens when you’re invited to attend a minor league baseball game on a weeknight with a heavy chance of rain in the forecast — you going to end up looking like Wednesday Addams just got back from camp counselling at Sleepy Hollow Summer Camp.

At least I do.

In school news, I just sent off the last of my internship-related grad work and now just have my independent study to buckle down on — which consists of constructing a syllabus, a lesson plan, and an actual lecture, plus a paper about the whole thing. If I keep my nose to the grindstone, I should finish just in time for Fall semester (and my legitimate thesis research) to start. Oh, and taking the GRE and deciding what I want to be when I grow up. Again.

Just not today.
