Crimson and Clover

Hey everyone! Hope that you are having a wonderful night. It is almost the weekend - hooray!

My weekend plans consists of watching 'Pretty in Pink' with my housemates, hitting up the best (and really, only) pub in town, reading some fun books, and helping out with my church's Heritage Fair. And I might just try to get  some homework and cleaning done in there, too. 

This past week has been pretty chill- I did well on those tests that I mentioned last time; thanks for all of you that wished me well! Senioritis has set in hardcore. I had friends describe it so accurately the other day: 

"High school senioritis should have prevented college senioritis, like a vaccine."

"No, high school senioritis is like chicken pox and college senioritis is like shingles.

Sooooo true. 

In other news, I was going to write a super sad and depressing paragraph about how senior year is so weird, where some days you are so happy and loving life and other days you feel like you just want to eat a lot of Swiss Rolls and watch 5 hours of "Orange is the New Black." 

But no, I watched this instead.

And boy, did that just make my night 10X better. 

Oh JGL. You make my life.

Be True to Your School

Hey everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderful Tuesday! 

I actually had to double check to make sure that it was actually Tuesday - I'm days are all messed up because yesterday was Mountain Day - one of my school's little traditions. Basically, we got off classes to have fun at the lake! 

Anyway, you can see how behind I am on pictures because these were actually from the first day of classes about 3 weeks ago. Of course, senior year is already in full swing: I have two exams in the next couple of days. Also, I just yelled for Amy to see if she was in her room and it turns out she went to the library to study too. We are just studying machines! 

Well, I best be getting back to studying. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to writing a post that is more than two paragraphs long and not about studying. If only... 

Have a great night, everyone!

(Oh! Also, here is my post from the first day of junior year. We were such babies!)

The Dog Days are Over

Hey hey there all, 

Hope that you have had a fabulous week so far! 

Mine has been pretty chill, still trying to get into the swing of things between school, work, friends, and church. I'm liking my classes so far, my favorite being Human Sexuality. 

Anyway, these are the last pictures that I have from summer, so I guess it officially means that fall is here! Although, I still didn't finish Harry Potter 7 - I re-read the series every summer, so there is still a little summer spirit left in me! 

Welp, I'm off to watch Pitch Perfect (yes- again) with my housemates. I keep finding people who have never seen it! And if you live with me that simply is not an option. "I'm going to kill him! I'm going to finish him like a cheesecake!"

Happy Thursday all!
