I am married now!  And I love it.

Also, I went through my second to last semester before student teaching last week!

AND I never have to take a state test ever again!  WHOO HOO!

Life is fairly good right now.  Just thinking about two years ago.

"The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph."

Today, I should have been studying.

Today, I should have been preparing for my last two finals.

Today should have been different, in regards to my attitude towards schoolwork.

Instead, I spent some time with some wonderful friends, watching various videos on YouTube.  They ranged from funny to emotional to inspiring.  There was one video that we watched that had all three.

Have you watched "The Butterfly Circus" yet?  It's a short film made a few years ago.

Here, here's a link to it.

If you have 20 minutes to spare, watch it.  You will laugh, cry, and feel empowered to continue on with whatever you are facing.  I have watched it twice now, and feel so much better about life.

The title of this blog is a line from that short film, coming at a crucial part.

Honestly, just watch it.  You will not regret it.

If I have learned anything over this last week...

It's that I need to not doubt myself, my abilities, and my potential to become great.  I have started to doubt all those things over the course of this last semester.  My question now, though, is why?
