Quest for Balance: Week Thirteen

Hello, dear readers!

I’m currently sitting at work, in my library that is positively freezing (oh, how I wish that they could regulate the temperature on campus as singular buildings instead of simply one unit) and my body is trying to give off signs of getting sick, which I’m promptly ignoring, because I just CAN’T right now.

But, over the weekend, the breeder called and APPROVED OUR APPLICATION, so we will be OFFICIALLY GETTING OUR GOLDEN RETRIEVER PUPPY AT THE END OF JUNE.

I do apologize that my entire Instagram feed, social media accounts and even most likely this blog, will soon be dedicated to Dovahkiin’s life. I mean, I apologize for it, but I’m not sorry about it, because golden retriever puppies are life and she is going to be EVERYTHING and I JUST HAVE NO CHILL ABOUT IT, OKAY.

And yes, I will probably teach my pup to drive, because she will be a responsible citizen.

This week, not as much on the calendar end of things (I swear, it’s like my weekends have been booked straight for the past month), so I’m excited to have a date-weekend-in with the boyfriend this weekend (and probably play a little too much Borderlands, since that trailer for the third game hyped me up something fierce). Hoping to focus more on what I am doing instead of what I’m not doing, too, as we head into April.

I hope your week is productive, positive and healthy!

Cheers.
