Happy Tuesday friends! As most of you probably know by now, I am in the final stretch of school with less than 3 weeks until graduation (eek!) and school has been absolutely crazy! So sorry for how MIA I have been these past few months, and I cannot wait to be back on regularly scheduled programming real soon. But, over the weekend I actually took a little road trip over to Pullman, where the main campus of my school is, with my mom and boyfriend for Mom’s Weekend and had SO much fun. It’s been forever since my last weekend trip and it felt so nice to get away and take a real break from school before finals, and especially nice being back in Pullman after having lived there for two years.
Hey everyone, what a crazy weekend it has been! Between homework, studying for midterms, work, and other weekend activities, you could say I’m a little overwhelmed!
First of all, I’d just like to take a moment and obsess over how sunny it has been these past few days here in Seattle. I thought I’d never seen the sun again after all of the rain we have had every single day for the past month. It’s honestly blinding at this point. The sunny weather has definitely boosted my motivation and has made me a bit happier knowing that spring is right around the corner (minus the fact that because the sun came out the temperature dropped about 15 degrees, ugh!). But no more dark and dreary winter days, so over it! I feel more motivated to get stuff done, do some spring cleaning, and just feel better about myself. It’s amazing that sunny weather can do all of that to someone!
Starting my weekend off on a high note, I got a new car and I am LOVING it! As my old car has started to go down hill, it was time to say goodbye unfortunately. But with a new car I honestly feel like I have been driving all weekend, just driving around and having fun in the new ride! It’s a used (but new to me!) Volkswagen GTI and it is SO much fun having a little sports car.
Weekend Eats: Believe it or not, I have never been to Panera Bread before and finally had the chance to this weekend and it was delicious! The grilled cheese sandwich and strawberry banana smoothie was just what I needed for a quick fill-me-up kind of meal.
Other than the fact that I have been driving around all weekend and working, I am finally enjoying a lazy but productive Sunday focusing on upcoming midterm exams and research papers. The motivation struggle has definitely been real this semester, but with sunny weather and spring right around the corner, it is just the motivation I need to help get me through the semester! Plus, topping off my study session today, my boyfriend and I are treating ourselves to some fro-yo tonight and I am super excited about it.
Here’s to starting off the new week right and powering through the stress!
