Since Last Sunday

New hat from Forever 21, just in time for the snow storms!

Final’s Week always comes without realizing it until it’s full-blown in your face. Before you know it, your to-do list is 10 pages long and you are constantly working from the moment you wake up until you fall asleep at night. During these weeks, it’s hard to take a break to just breathe when you feel like you could use the extra few seconds working to get something done. However, this is when I am thankful for the 5-minute walk from my last class to the parking lot where Connor picks me up. Somehow, life finds a way during this time to stop thinking about school work and let my mind just go blank.

This week, peace came in the form of a crisp and rainy night. As I waited on the sidewalk, I listened to the rhythmic beeping of the nearby crosswalk. Not to sound corny, but it truly felt like it was my heart-rate monitor letting me know I am still alive. A zombie, maybe, but making it through the last full week of school.

Yesterday, I had my final presentation for my interior design studio, and that was the biggest weight off of my shoulders. It went well, and it was fun to see all of my classmates work. After a whole semester, I had barely gotten to see anything they had done up until this point. I still have three tests next week that I will be studying for, but I am hardly stressed for those in comparison to the stress I had while rushing to finish my studio project. Check back next week, I think I will be posting pictures of my project! Anyways, it is really strange to think about only having one more semester of school and then it will all be over and into the “real world.” Exciting!

Despite all of the craziness of the week. I still managed to snap some pictures throughout. I am trying to get more involved with Instagram, besides just using it for photo filters. I plan on using these “Since Last Sunday” posts to share glimpses of my week. Enjoy!

Early Christmas present from Connor, some amazing new boots that can be tall or rolled down for some exciting patterns. Connor is THE best! Seriously wearing them everyday.
