I believe my entrance date is August 24. How many days is that?

I would message you on FB, but I think you blocked me (don't know why). I know you've had a hard time, but I don't see why others have to suffer because you hurt. Shouldn't our own hurt encourage us t

I'm getting really nervous. Not about entering, but about can I do this at all. I'm giving up so much. Can I handle that? I know that grave is offered, but cooperation with grace is key.

Which one? I posted at least 1 Columbia coat so I'm not sure which one you're referring to. ;)


Oh sorry! The original one that I posted. I must not have seen that Columbia coat you posted. I'll have to look at it!

Well, crud!  They sold out of the black and now they just have grey and plum.  :(

If it's any consolation, that's something I've struggled with a lot myself...

You're normal and fine and you can't know what the life will really be like until you're living it, so don't torture yourself with "what-ifs."

Amen. 

 

I think it's important to see it from the perspective that any change in state in life also comes with some degree of mourning. Like, when you become married, you aren't single before, and you can't live like you're single. There's a whole new horizon, and so many new sources of joy, but you are also, to a large degree, leaving your old self behind, and you can't continue to live as if you are single. You have to mourn the independence of single life, and then leave it behind and embrace the new.

just ordered shoes. we're ordering everything by month so we're not overwhelmed last minute. it's starting to get real. it's weird how little things like this solidify this reality. haha

 

Smart idea.  I don't know why anyone would wait until last minute...

Maybe if you don't know until last minute that you're going to join?  :hehe2:

 

Well, that I can understand but I knew someone who knew she was going to enter for a year and didn't start buying stuff until a few weeks before her entrance.  I don't know if it was from lack of storage or lack of planning but that would drive me nuts to wait that long.
