This Week In Review

This was a really good, eventful week. Lots of exciting things happened, and I've just been having a blast! The first couple days (Monday and Tuesday) were a little slow, but Wednesday it started picking up.

It was basically the usual grocery shopping, getting homework done and not doing much but getting ready for the week.

Flashback from last March!
Trying to eat a little healthier...
Ordered a piece of the Rivercourt from One Tree Hill!!!!! AHH :D
I helped Mandy out in her classroom, which was fun as usual! I led a few reading groups, gave a Math test, made the Valentine's Day class list for cards and treats, and helped do a little origami with shapes. It's so cool getting to know different students each week better and better. Each time I've visited I've been able to spend more time with different kids, and they're all so adorable. Mandy's brother, Nick, is also visiting from out of state so him and their mom came to help out as well. He shared a little bit about his job and showed some money from the country he's been visiting. The kids were really excited and impressed with that!

One of the students gave me an Angry Birds sticker

Wednesday and Thursday were gorgeous days outside and the weather was perfect! So, I went bike riding, then I'd come home and just sit on my front porch. I listened to music, wrote, and just did a lot of thinking/daydreaming. As I sat there, I was so inspired by everything around me, and realized that you can gain so much perspective from those simple moments. I felt so much better about everything I was worried about at the time after just taking a "time out" from life. It makes you want to not be in such a hurry; to just slow down and notice all the beauty that's around.

Just what I needed
I had classes as usual on campus! Geography was really boring and long; we watched a video, he talked, and we took a quiz...fun, fun. In Minority Relations we went over some chapter study guides for our quiz on Tuesday (I'm really nervous about that, because we covered a lot of material). That afternoon was another gorgeous day, so I decided to go bike riding! My tire was flat, so I had to use my dad's which is way different from mine. I became adjusted quicker to it than I thought I would. It was so relaxing and rejuvenating.

The fountain at school
This popped into my head yesterday and I needed that! 

Last night, there was a Creative Worship team meeting/dinner at church. It was so much fun getting to see everyone that I don't always get to talk to and just hang out. We had spaghetti and Olive Garden salad and breadsticks, and plenty of desserts to choose from. I ended up hanging around a little while longer with my friend, Makenzie after that in childcare, which wasn't bad at all. They had everything covered for the most part, so we ended up just sitting there (in case anyone needed anything), watching videos on YouTube of Jersey Shore and talking a lot! ;) 
Later, we met up with the rest of the gang for the midnight showing of The Vow! We were so excited that we were first in "line", which only lasted about 15 minutes because we turned out to be the only ones. They let us in earlier, so we were able to get perfect seats in the middle of the theater. We had so much fun laughing, making fun of each other and talking, waiting for the movie to start. It was really cute, but I don't know if it was quite as good as I thought it would be. It was just different! By the time the movie ended (Close to 2), we were all pretty wiped out. Makenzie dropped me off, and I went straight to bed!

Today, I ran some errands and had lunch with my mom! We went to the bank, Target, and the car wash (exciting right?) Seriously, it was fun though :) I also helped set up a little at our church for the Valentine's dance awhile. I came home, got ready, and it was back to the church for the actual thing. I'll blog about that later, since that's "officially" where the weekend starts!
Finishing up last minute Film homework first thing this morning!
It has that affect on all of us, Lucy!

What I bought at Target! So excited to hear the real story of "The Vow"

Taylor Swift Valentine card our friend sent us! :) So sweet!

I've got a busy weekend ahead of me-helping my photographer friend out at a wedding, Valentine's Day party with the girls, singing at church, lunch with family friends and Bible study. Phew! I have a feeling great things are in store, though. I'm excited for all of it-so bring it on! 

That's all for now,
