so… i became a fiancée yesterday.

story: he took me out for a nice dinner, during which i was expecting him to propose. he did not. i was slightly bummed, but whatever. i decided to let it go and enjoy the rest of the evening. afterward, we went over to our friends’ place to play board games, specifically settlers of catan (it’s one of our favorites). a little while into the game, dan proposed a trade to me.

"may i have your entire hand… for this sheep?"

"no, that’s an awful trade. why would i do that — i’m winning."

"well then… [takes out ring] may i have your hand for this?"

he completely blindsided me. i’d let my guard down since he hadn’t proposed at dinner. in what, i will openly admit, was not my finest moment, i called him a son of a bitch — but then i said yes (obviously).

so there it is. i was proposed to via a board game. and our best friends were there to see it. couldn’t have asked for a better proposal, couldn’t ask for a better partner.

Said goodbye to Grandpa today. Sad, sad day.

I’m being the least productive person ever today, but I also have on a Mickey Mouse shirt. So I guess it balances out.

My hair’s a mess and I’m bored as hell.
I’m currently trying to read through three different documents discussing educational standards for mathematics so that I can compare/contrast what’s different/similar pertaining to probability.
It’s the actual worst.
Also, I have a meeting with the head of the math department at a local high school (the one I graduated from, actually) in about an hour. Gonna get my practicum schedule finalized and then come back up to campus for class from 5-8.

I wish there was a way to capture moments of my yoga practice in pictures.

But since I’m not willing to have Dan just stand there and awkwardly snap photos of my postures…

Oh well.

Maybe one day I’ll figure out a system.

Screenshot from the video I posted today. I quite like the way I look right here. I find that I look best when I try not to. I wish I could turn the gorgeous on on command, but I just end up looking goofy when I try to pull of the ‘naturally beautiful’ look.
Perhaps y’all don’t even think I look particularly attractive in this picture. Doesn’t really matter. I do. And, really, isn’t that all that matters?

So apparently I whine enough for auto correct to notice…

So my mom and dad got me an awesome fruit basket as a congratulatory gift for getting accepted to grad school.
My parents are pretty rad.

WOOOO!!! Got into my safety program! One acceptance letter down, one to go!
So much of my stress has been alleviated thanks to his acceptance letter. Now I know that I’m guaranteed grad school and that I don’t have to start applying for jobs, I can finally take a breath. Phew.
Seriously. Such a load off.
Everybody wish me luck regarding my acceptance into the M.A.T. program! That’s the one I really want, and I’m super anxious to hear back about whether or not I got it.
Fingers crossed!
