I Should Probably Feel More Stressed For Finals

Thinking-Out-Loud

It has been way too long since I’ve joined Amanda’s party!

1) Firstly, thank you all for your words of wisdom and support on Monday’s post. You’re the peanut butter to my banana.  That could be taken very wrongly. *Getting my head out of the gutter.* You’re the peanut butter to my jelly— let’s just stick with the classic 🙂

2) It’s officially finals week (after my one linguistics class today).

It’s concerning me that I don’t quite feel the stress and pressure of my three exams coming up next week, especially since I have both organic chemistry and anatomy on Tuesday. I NEED TO BE FREAKING OUT. Fear needs to do its evolutionary job and get me to study like a madwoman.

Don’t worry, mom and pop, I’m studying.

3) “Girls just wanna have fun” was definitely the theme of this past weekend. The Catholic Women’s Group had an epic sleepover on Friday night…

…and then I went to my roommate’s fashion show! I’ve already showed you her model status, but it was so fun seeing her WERK in person.

4) Remember when I told you I joined the Catholic Center intramural softball team just because they needed more girls to play? Well, our team made it all the way to the championship game! We didn’t win it, but I’m thoroughly impressed with the team’s undefeated streak up until that point.

Not that I did anything. I played catcher or far {farrrrrr} right field. Everyone else picked up my slack very well. I thought I hated baseball/softball, but I had— dare I say— fun!

5) In other exciting news, the coolest Asian-Persian-Australian (aka The Big Man’s World) is now in NYC, and I’m so stoked for him!!! Great NYC Food Tour Part 3 {see part 1 + part 2} is in the works.

6) Speaking of other bloggers, the Blend Retreat is in just a couple weeks! As soon as finals are over, I’ll be all about Colorado and Blend.

7) It’s still chilly here in Boston, but the trees are blooming! I feel compelled to take a picture every time I pass by trees that are blooming, even though I’ve already taken half a dozen of the same four trees.

8) Tori Kelly’s new song is so dang groovy and the lyrics are perfect.

You’ll see me hangin’ with my fam, but that don’t mean I’m living in a bubble. You’ll find me at church, but that don’t me I can’t cause trouble.

9) I need to go to bed, so I’m going to stop typing right here. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Listen to music that makes you wanna dance. And then DANCE.

So tell me:

What is one thing that pleasantly surprised you this past week?

What song are you currently loving?
