What a month

Wow where did time go? It really does move fast the older you get and I cannot believe how different life is than 12 months ago. This time last year, I was finishing up my undergraduate degree, graduating, getting married, and then moving. Now I am married, still studying for finals, dealing with insurance companies, and for the first time in 5 years I will not be moving at the end of the spring semester. 

I have so many different thoughts swimming around my mind that I can foresee a few blog posts about them in the next week or so. First I have to finish finals. My first final was Tuesday, followed by a take-home final that's mostly completed, and then a Saturday final. Yup. I have a final on Saturday from 4-6:45 PM. If that's not cruel, I don't know what is. 

Anyway, I know I need to take the time for myself to just sit and reflect on these changes, if only for my sanity. I also want to share it with you, because I know all of my readers are in different places in life, so I will be interested to hear your insights. 

But just a preview of what's to come-- Jessica's thoughts on:

  • 1 year of marriage (What? How?)
  • The life of a criminology Ph.D. student (more nerdy than 'Criminal Minds,' I assure you)
  • Grading undergrads' papers (I don't know where to begin)
  • Being more adult-y and independent (But I'm not old enough for this yet)
  • Moving and establishing myself in this new area (Or maybe ourselves, since Matt and I are a collective unit and all)
So that's where this blog will be heading in the next few weeks. Along with whatever else strikes my fancy :)

Have a great Wednesday! 


  1. It's been quite a year hasn't it! I was just thinking the othed day that so much has changed since our wedding last summer! Good luck with exams, you will do amazing I am sure :)

  2. It's amazing what can happen in a year. Good luck with finals! A Saturday final does sound cruel. Can't wait to read up on all of these things!
