Productivity was at an all-time high this week.  Something about spending a week away on vacation makes me want to come home and be as productive as possible.  I’ve done enough this week for the past two weeks, I hope.  While it may not seem like much at first glance, I checked off some major tasks for the summer.

Registering for classes was not quite the nightmare that it was at Mercer, but there were still unknown registration holds to keep me waiting all afternoon.  Everything worked out, though, and I finally registered for courses in statistics, ethics of school psychology, testing, and exceptional children. Let’s take a moment to pause and praise since I no longer have to take unnecessary gen-ed courses!  I made a cute little schedule, and I will be adding hours for my graduate assistantship and hours at the BARC to it soon enough.  (The BARC is the Baylor Autism Resource Center.)


I’m decorating my room in Waco with a travel theme, which means maps, maps, and more maps!  This week I covered some light switch plates and outlet covers with some maps using ModPodge.  I also updated a cork/magnet board with some maps.  I added a diamond with washi tape to represent ADPi!  I thought it turned out really well.  I’m still thinking of what to do for the magnets, though.


I also finally jumped on the bandwagon and planted some succulents, thanks to Cason’s help.  I used an old tin that I got from a thrift store, drilled some holes in the bottom for extra drainage, and planted a small cactus and three types of succulents.  I will have to add a photo later.

I’m getting super excited about moving to Texas, and keeping busy helps the time pass more quickly.  Busy is exactly what I will be for the next several weeks.  This week I am taking engagement pictures, going on vacation to the beach, and attending both bridal and baby showers.  I will be attending weddings of four friends from RUF in college the first two weekends in August.  Busy, busy with loads of wonderful things.  I suppose I will find time to pack somewhere in there, but that will come.

Also, another update that I almost forgot: Cason found a place to live that’s within his budget!  What a blessing!  Well, I will be back when I have more updates!

  1. I’m about to start my school psychology journey as well! I know you are as excited as I am. I actually start my assistantship and move in my apartment exactly a month from today and then I start my program about week after that. I haven’t even begin to get my room together! I need to get the ball rolling.

      1. I’m going to Georgia Southern University. It’s crazy because I was going to go with University of Alabama but I couldn’t turn down an assistantship offer. I’m trying to be in the less debt as possible when I graduate!

      2. Oh I applied both places! They seem to have good programs! And I definitely understand about the grad assistantship. That’s what made Baylor so attractive to me. You’ll have to keep in touch and let me know how your program goes!

      3. Cool, small world! UA was my dream school so it kinda hurt me that I got in but couldn’t go due to money not being right but I’m confident that Southern will be a great school as well. I will keep in touch! Plan to blog through my whole grad school experience! I’m just so nervous, I’m ready to start already. Wish I met someone in my cohort already, looking forward to that as well.

      4. Oh that’s crazy that you haven’t met your cohort! We all have a Facebook group, but I’m sure you will meet them soon! Good luck!

      5. Thank you! fb group sounds like a good idea. Good luck to you as well! Just think in a matter of years we will be practicing school psychologist =)
