Happy Friday! So the weather has finally been pretty lovely and I had the most productive day on Wednesday! It was great: a killer workout, spent some hours in Starbucks in the city, walked around the city in the sun, bought bread, carrots, and potatoes at Whole Foods, cooked (baked) 2 new recipes, blog and social media stuff, other things, yea, it was good and busy. Now I’ve just got one week left! I have 2 finals. One on Tuesday (30 multiple choice and a quick easy essay for comparative politics) and one on Thursday (60 multiple choice for biology). Needless to say, I haven’t started “studying”, but will go other things this weekend. I’m not worried at all. Like…at all. I guess I lucked out there. I hear some kids have 5 finals in pretty hard classes. Not me 😉
Some of the things I’m really looking forward to now – showering without having to bring my whole shower caddy and wear flip-flops, drinking real water…out of a plastic water bottles, being able to sleep in a room that has a consistent working thermostat, not being locked out of your own bathroom at 2am when you’re about to pee in your pants, people not slamming doors for no reason, cooking/natural light/not eating out of cardboard, a microwave that’s a normal height, not having the intense fear that you’re going to lock yourself out of your room, bedroom, or building, and having sinks that actually have water flow coming out and don’t get clogged. There’s a lot, but those are just some good ones 😉
Okay, I’m done rambling and you have a ton of reading and pinning to do, so get to it! Have a beautiful sunny weekend dear friends! XOXO
Monday: Black & White Pancakes
Tuesday: The Struggle Of Forgiveness
Wednesday: Crunchy Cinnamon “Sugar” Chickpeas
Blog Posts and Links I loved this week:
Life, Mind, Body, Spirit:
From these we can choose to grow and change.
What does it look like to actually be working hard?
I was nodding along to this post!
You can do it!
You’ve got one short life! Make it amazing!
Yes! Love life!
This…this is so true!
Don’t stretch the truth. Just be who you are!
Why would you ever think of yourself as average!
Every day, you’re making steps and growing! You are better than the last, remember that!
Why let others dictate your life? You have control and only what you think or you matters!
I think people forget this. Body image knows no gender, race, age, etc.
Wow. This is real.
Sometime racing, marathons, etc., just isn’t for all of us.
This is me! 100%!
Still working on that one.
Love this post! Gotta know!
Remember…feel the ground!
Tried and true ones that won’t flop!
If you’re going to buy processed, know which to splurge on!
Not really. It’s probably something else, unless you truly are that .06%. Read this please before ruining the “realness” of true Celiac needs.
Golden! Nothing is ever so clear cut or a fact.
Blogging, Social Media, Tech & Photography:
I think having one would be more of a hassle for me, but I’ve always loved the concept!
These are good! Read these every day or when you need a moral boost!
So good! Getting “expose” may seem good, but you are worth more.
When we were told to “brainstorm” before writing in school, I never would…and I got A’s so….
To keep that flame and spark going through this crazy journey!
Because it tried to be a copy-cat and if really just…sucked. We didn’t need yet another similar platform.
So far I haven’t had success with it.
This was just so so so great! (I loved what she said in the middle about “balance”, haha!)
It’s about content, just like the podcast above said.
Great tips! I may have to really implement some of these!
Bravo! This is why “getting your name out there” gets old.
One more week!
This is happening this Summer!
The best damn video game ever!
Sometimes success can be defined by our everyday habits.
I never though I was creative for so long!
Um wow. Money does buy some happiness 😛
