The winter blahs are upon me. I’m exhausted from the January run through deadlines, the nonsense related to community college and class rank, and just overall nonsense. I feel like I’m in need of a long winter’s nap, which is impossible because I’ve relocated to the guest room because of less-than-year-old mattress is officially sagging more than an inch. (That Furniture Saga is TBD.)
All that being said, let’s talk about a few wins:
- I was asked to co-present on a panel at the College Board Dream Deferred conference next month on Advocating for Black Students in the Competitive Admissions Landscape. I think that fits nicely into my 101 in 1001 list for presenting on something different.
- My kid got into a Top 15 law school last night! This was welcome news since we’re being held for further consideration/sitting on waitlists at a handful of schools right now. ACCEPTANCE is a GREAT thing.
- We’ve booked flights for our annual April adventure. I know that I’m spending Easter weekend at La Toretta, but the rest of the trip is TBD. I need to spend some time working on that.
- I managed to get one of our high schools re-ranked and I’ve been furiously working on mid-year reports. I remain hopeful that we’re going to have some kids get in ED2… which is probably wishful thinking my part, but I want it.
So – despite the wins – I want help getting through this winter exhaustion. What’s your best cure for the winter blahs? (I’m pretty sure Stephanie had it right in this post, but let’s hear your thoughts, too.)
One of these kids just got into law school. <3
