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?

  1. I’m seriously in love with the fact that they include Play-Doh and crayons in the stress less package. I actually just bought a colouring book to help me chill out, and it seriously works wonders. And duuuuude! Two more weeks until I see you at Blend!! Un.REAL.

  2. Every time finals rolled around in college I would be less and less stressed than the previous finals. I think you start to realize that you have been fine every time before so they are less scary! I wish I was going to Blend – seems so fun!

  3. You’re going to blend?! Ahh so lucky! Can I tag along in your luggage 🙈🙋🏼
    And I had no idea who tori kelly was until you mentioned her a few times and now I’m obsessed!!
    Have a great one Alison!!!!

  4. Have fun at Blend for me! Someday…I’ll make it there to meet all of the beauties of the blogging world! Love the stress free freebies they handed out. =)
