Once a scholar ...

Always a scholar?

I've started the Master. Oh Emm Gee. So far it's interesting and I'm finding my balance between work, study and family. Ha! I'm like a somersaulting acrobat juggling three balls on a tightrope and it's only just begun.

I also had a 1.5 day period, with a sum total of about 20 ml of blood (I know this TMI because of my Lunette cup which has convenient measurements). And then yesterday afternoon/evening I had what felt like ovulation cramps - on CD6. WHAT THE FUCK? Is this the beginning of the end? Potentially you lovely ladies will get to travel down menopause road with me and hear all about the highs and lows to scare the bejeezus outta you all (there probably won't be any highs except the high temperature at night when I make the bed all manky with my night sweats).

It's scaring me.


  1. I had some cycles like that last year. Not so fun. I am pretty sure in the next couples years I will be right there too. Good luck with the masters. I know you can do it.

  2. Congrats on your Masters! I know you are loving your textbooks to sleep! ;-)

    Do you feel bad that I was laughing at your description of the AF? You are funny.

    Take Care.

  3. I had a super short cycle like that a few years ago. It scared the bejeezus out of me but then things went back to how they usually are. Fingers crossed that by next month it's just one of those strange quirks of biology that can't be explained, but which also doesn't happen again any time soon.

    WONDERFUL news about you starting your Masters. I can imagine that keeping those balls up in the air is taking some doing, but I think it's an excellent move.
