I opened up to Pip today that I have been smoking, telling him about the abstinence project for my Ways of Knowing:  Alcohol & Drug Addictions class.  I spend the day smoking, and today I do it without shame.  I feel relief at having been mostly honest about my sneaky smoking, and I prepare myself for tomorrow.

I did some school work today – my first assignment was due, so it’s a good thing!  I also created a school calendar so I can easily see what is due when.  Of course, I’m  nervous I didn’t do it correctly!  Anyhoo, I’m having difficulty focusing on school because I’m putting so much energy into focusing on the tea party!  I’m so excited.  About both, really, so I better get with it (re: school) tomorrow!
