One. My post on Monday didn’t mean I was disappearing from the blogosphere until May! I’ll still be around, maybe just a little more silent on weeks where I have a lot due. I won’t be posting five-times-a-week, although today marks the first full day of my Spring Break so I’ll probably have a normal blogging week next week. I’ll still be commenting on blogs and trying to get a post or two up. I just felt that my readers deserved to know why I wouldn’t be as HERE for the next 2 months.
Two. Speaking of Spring Break, I’m FREE for the next 10 days! No classes, no internships, no waking up at 4:30am to get ready. I can just wake up, shower, throw my hair in a pony, grab my stuff, and go! I’m so looking forward to the break, even if I’ll be spending most of it just catching up with everything. I have a magazine to start designing, law journals to write, textbooks to read, assignments to complete. But I think I’ll be ready to tackle this last half of the semester and not have too many meltdowns.
Three. I received my book for Chelsea’s book swap Wednesday night. I was super excited about what it was when she e-mailed me, telling me how good it was and that she wanted to read it. And it looks awesome! I can’t wait to start reading it. I think I’m really going to enjoy it.
Four. Thanks for all the suggestions in my last post! The ones involving my faith were especially hard to hear but I totally understand. God does need to have the first-place spot in my life. I know when I’m following after Him and leaning on Him, things are a lot smoother. They’re not perfect. Things are still hard and I still feel stress. But I feel calmer, more in control. So I’m definitely going to work on our relationship, connecting more with God, and having a daily Bible study.
Five. Next Monday, I’m meeting with an adviser to schedule classes for Summer and Fall. Hopefully, my last two semesters of my undergrad career! I can’t believe I’m almost there. After everything I went through with being THISCLOSE to graduating with my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and then everything falling apart, I felt as if I would never receive my degree. Two classes I’m extremely excited about taking are Social Media, News, and Society and Media Convergence. I really have no idea what I want to do when I leave school but something along public relations or social media does appeal to me a lot.
Six. I’m trying out replying to all my comments by e-mail. Whenever I get a e-mail from Erin after commenting on her blog, it fills me with warm fuzzies and I like the connection, even if I never do reply back. So we’ll see how this goes and how long I can keep up!
Seven. My plans for Friday-Sunday include sleeping, reading, and catching up on my Reader and DVR-ed shows. Notice there is nothing involving school? I’m not even thinking about school this weekend! It’s going to be absolutely divine. I plan on staying cuddled up in my bed on Saturday until noon at the earliest. Ughhh…I can’t wait!
