Happy Friday to you from Florida! It’s Disney Princess race weekend, so I’ve left the unexpectedly beautiful weather in Chicago for some serious heat. But it’s all good and should be a fun time. I won’t post on the blog over the weekend, but be sure to follow along on Instagram! And before we get to the weekend fun, let’s look back at some of the best things from the week.
Seeing my family
Since I might be going abroad in the fall, my parents and I decided not to have our usual mid-quarter visit. It was fine, of course, but I missed them. And full disclosure: I seriously needed a hug by Thursday.
See, there is a chance I’m not running on Sunday. It breaks my heart, but since Monday (when I set out to run a quick two miles), there’s been a bad pain in my hip. It doesn’t happen when I’m doing anything but running and I’m hoping beyond hope that by some miracle it’ll all work out… but it might not. So, it’s been an emotional week, and as soon as I hugged my mom, I broke down.
Whether I run or not, I get to hang out with my parents, my aunt, and my little cousin, and that’s enough for a soul-filling weekend – even if it doesn’t turn out to be the weekend I expected.
White board notes
When I met my friend to do our econ homework at the library last week, someone left this lovely message on the white board by our table. I got way too much enjoyment out of it, so thanks to whoever took the time to script that. It couldn’t have been more accurate. It was a stunningly bright, blue day… and we were in the Reg.
I picked up the Dark Cacao variety of these at Whole Foods last week and I’m obsessed. They’re chewy and coconutty and not too sweet at all. Soooo perfect.
The end of the quarter
It’s weird to say this at the end of 8th week, but all my finals are the Tuesday of 10th week, rather than 11th week, sooo I’m almost done. I have a final essay due next Thursday, 3 finals the following Tuesday, and my final draft of my crime story is due the following Friday. So, one more real week and then 2.5 weeks of spring break. That’s so crazy!
I love fizzy, acidic drinks. These are too damn expensive, but I get one or two to savor each week and thoroughly enjoy them every time. They make me feel all energized and refreshed. I think this is my favorite flavor + brand, but I’ll take recommendations for more!
And that’s all from me for the week. I’ll be back Monday with… some update on what happens on Sunday. Have a fabulous weekend!
What’s your favorite non-water beverage? Alcoholic or non – I need some ideas for my birthday party. 😉
What’s on your agenda for the weekend?
