O boy, what a week! TGIF! I had a pretty lack luster week and really need this weekend, it couldn’t have come quick enough. But it won’t be relaxing like last weekend. I have tons of tests to study for next week, posts I need to get done for the blog, and college things that need to be ironed out. (I still need to write a few essays! Ah!) I am totally stressing and just all around frustrated. I think I need to just take a step back and evaluate what exactly is most important and just focus on that. I am putting way to much stress on myself right now…no good.
Has it snowed by you yet? The temps were so low this week, 20s and 30s. It lightly snowed Tuesday morning, and my mom almost didn’t let me drive to school. But it was light and kept stopping and starting so I did drive and I survived 🙂 But the cold is really killing me! I go out to warm-up the car about 10 minutes before I have to leave, but my old Jeep Cherokee does not have good heat and it is still freezing when I jump in. I usually wear a sweater, light sweatshirt, and then a heavier sweatshirt over that, plus gloves and a hat. But it does not help, plus how are you supposed to keep you legs warm? This has always baffled me. I guess I should buy a trench coat, hey? And o those winter fire drills in school. We had one yesterday first period (i.e. 8am). Can you say freezing outside for 15 minutes…um yes. Alright I am done, let’s just move on to the Finisher! Have a happy Friday 🙂
