Sprint to the Finish

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve logged on and intended to type up a quick post. But then my Excel sheet to-do list reminds me  about the dozen other high-priority tasks to tackle that I can’t justify postponing. In a week, my junior year of college will be over. Finals and group projects and term papers will be done. And I will regain my sanity. :)

But I have a moment now, and not a clue where to start…

There was Easter brunch, inspired by Pinterest:

In the midst of chaotic days, there were several drives out to my peaceful place:

Perfect Picnic Day (

Group projects consumed my life. There were a few spontaneous froyo stops with friends for some chocolate therapy. We’ve given ourselves a “free pass” on our diet for the last couple weeks of school. Projects, papers, presentations, final exams, packing, workouts, appointments, meetings and every day life….it can be stressful. This is the time to go a little easy on yourself and just do the best you can.

Then Ellie Goulding came to town:

Ellie was amazing live! Her voice is so angelic. People-watching the drunken freshman in crop tops and flower crowns was hilarious. And we sang along to every word we knew. “God knows I’m not dying but I’ll bleed now. And God knows it’s the only way to heal now.” “It’s a shame you don’t know what you’re running from….you know this your biggest mistake. What a waste, what a waste, what a waste.” “And I don’t know where I’m going, but I know it’s gonna be a long time…Wanna hear your beating heart, tonight.” “

The year-ending brunch for the college of business was another opportunity to dress like a “grown-up.”

I stuck with good ole’ Special K for breakfast though ;)

I have one more very exciting life event to share……


.. but I’m going to have to save that for it’s own post next time ;)

Seven more days until I move back home for the summer and reunite with my snuggle buddy Missy. I can’t believe my junior year of college is already over, but at the same time I need it to just end. This has been one of the most stressful and overwhelming semesters, academically. Fall will bring a fresh start after a summer full of eating clean and building up my running mileage again. :)

But I still have finals to get through first! Time for a best-friend-study-date. Every semester Kerri and I spend finals week together for evening study sessions with country music, Sprout’s coffee, snacks on snacks, and sporadic dance breaks :)
