There are lots of ideas floating around in my head and I am feeling like my blog could use a dose of something substantial-ish, but…my brain is mush right now. So rather than forcing a post and risk sounding like a total cheese ball, I am just going to tell you my favourite things that happened this week. Because it being the last week of classes, was pretty darn amazing. I’m linking up with Heather & Clare, because I have Five Friday Favourites. 🙂
1. Easter delivery from home!
I know I blogged about this yesterday, but it seriously made my whole entire day. It was just so thoughtful, not to mention the coffee was the best I’ve had in months. If I hadn’t been counting down the days already, that definitely would have made me start! But I’m not even counting down in TOLs anymore, we’re down to 18 days. ❤
2. Peaceful morning run + green smoothie.
So…I can’t remember if this happened on Sunday or Monday, but we’re going to put it in this post anyway. 😉 This was just the perfect morning all-around: I woke up without an alarm, ate toast + coffee while perusing blogs, and then ran down to Whole Foods. I got my first smoothie in months, and drank it while wandering West Fourth Ave enjoying life. (oops. there’s the cheese ball.)
3. Looking + feeling like a girl.
Judge me all you want for putting this on the list, but it is just so true! For whatever reason, this past week I have put a lot more effort into wearing actual clothes (instead of #alltheleggings) and doing my hair, and it has honestly made such a difference in how I feel! I’m more confident, more outgoing, and happier about life in general.
4. A life that doesn’t revolve around school.
I’m not sure how this has happened, especially so close to the end of the semester, but I’m definitely not complaining. Instead of panicking about assignments and finals, I have been going on so many nice evening jogs with friends, as well as out for delicious meals. This is such a change from the girl that always ran alone and literally refused to eat out, ever. I’m seriously hoping I can carry this momentum through the end of exams. 🙂
5. Spending more time unplugging. Amanda inspired me to really get on this, and I’m already feeling the effects. I sleep better (except when I’m awoken by an atrocious fire alarm), and don’t feel as irritable during the day. I’m currently just reading random / average books though, so please hit me up with some suggestions!
Tell me one thing that made you happy this week!
What do you do right before bed?
