2017 was a huge year for us (him immigrating to my home country, wedding, honeymoon, being accepted to and starting my dream doctoral program), and I have been feeling a bit bummed because in 2018 we have absolutely nothing new to look forward to! Good thing I can live vicariously through the bee 😉

Not a whole lot planned this year…. we’re continuing to TTC, so depending on how that goes we may have a lot going on, also I turn 30.

He’s been pushing for it for a while, while I’ve been dragging my feet – I was never the sort to dream of weddings as a little girl. He asked if he could ask in Jan 2018 and I sorta went “OH NO.” So, we’ve settled on sometime after the middle of the year to get engaged.

So, I’ll finally be a “real bee”.

Baby will be born this spring, and then our entire lives will change.

Sometime before the end of the month, I should be transitioning my current in-office position into work-from home. After years of them claiming there was a logistical impediment I managed to present her with a solution and convince the director of operations for the department to allow people in my function to telecommute.

After I’m home full time, we’re going to get a babydog. I can’t freaking wait. 

Then, in October, we’re getting married! 

Also, I’ve been at my organization long enough that tuition reimbursement kicks in, so I’m looking for a masters program, though I’m not sure if I’ll actually take that on this year. Might wait till next.

So many people have such exciting plans! Babies, and weddings, and school! I’m getting all choked up at all the amazing things you Bees have in store!

New job, new baby, remodeling our house. That’s just in the next sixth months.

No clue what’s after that.

We just moved to a new city 1500kms from our home city – So there will be lots of exploring for us to do! 😊

I (hopefully) graduate in October.

Also hoping we have a baby by the end of 2018… 9 months TTC thus far.

Ugh, it’s going to be such a crazy year for me. I’m a nervous wreck about it.

We’re moving in with my in-laws in a few weeks (which we’re lucky to be able to do, but still — ughhh). My second semester of grad school also starts in a few weeks. And I’ll be commuting probably 3 hours a day from their house to get to work.

Over the summer we plan to move 800 miles away to Colorado, basically just for the heck of it. DH will take a huge pay cut. I’ll be an unpaid intern, all while still somehow paying for my Master’s. It’s all terrifying. And exciting. But mostly terrifying.

I hope you all have a great 2018!

Fingers crossed DH gets the job he did his final interviewed for the first week of November…they should be letting us know soon. 

If he does then we are finally moving & I can get a car and start working again!

Based off of that I may decide to go back to school, so that could potentially start in September. 

Nothing major yet, it’s all based off of 1 companies decision that we have been waiting 3 years for!

Feeling a bit nervous and uncertain about this year. I spent all of 2017 hating my job so I hope I can find something else. We have also been house hunting since August so fingers crossed we can find something to buy soon.

I’m continuing to apply for internships and hopefully I’ll get one this time. It would be great to advance my career even though I’m somewhat dreading the internship itself. And if I get an internship in another part of the country I would also have a move coming up this year.
