Seven Quick Takes Friday (Vol. 8)


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 advisor 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!


  1. Yay and yay for spring break! Spring break definitely makes march a better month! I love the e-mail reply feature too but I don't know how to get it on blogger- how are you going to do it?

  2. Yay for spring break and being FREE! Enjoy it, you totally deserve it.

  3. Oh wow, I'm so excited for you for your ten glorious days off! :) Have an amazing weekend!

  4. Your weekend (and subsequent days off) sound fantastic. I love just being able to relax, catch up, and not go anywhere unless I decide that I want to. Congratulations on begining to schedule the last few semesters of your undergrad! You will be finished before you know it. Have a lovely weekend!

  5. Good for you on taking a break from school this weekend! Relax and enjoy your self!

  8. What book did you get? I'm excited to start reading my Book Swap book too...just not sure when I'll squeeze it in!

  9. We started spring break as well!!! I'm a little giddy ...hence why i'm up at 3am reading blogs. haha :))
