But, there have still been fun moments : seeing "Blended", starting a few new books, church, group chats on Facebook, listening to music, procrastinating on homework to enjoy myself a little more, etc.
|Monday=gotta go for comfort.|
Next quarter, positions are switching around. So, these were the last few moments that we were going to be this particular team. It's weird, but it's exciting. We've all grown so much stronger as individuals, as well as a team and as friends. We continue to get better as a paper, as journalists, and as people in general. I know I've grown into my leadership role much quicker than I ever thought I could, and I thank God for the courage He has given me.
|My team. I heart them.|
Thursday night, we celebrated at the Firehouse sports bar, for our awards banquet. It was fun getting dressed up and actually having somewhere to go. I even tried to play pool, which was THE biggest joke ever. I couldn't even hit the ball. Talk about pathetic, but at least I tried. It was fun to actually bond with the other staff writers and photographers, because we've never had an event like this. It's certainly something we hope to keep going for the future. I also got the "Almost Famous Award" for exemplary work as an entertainment insider. I felt pretty honored…Wonder if I can use this for my resume? lol.
I just have a few more days of school, which is wonderful, but at the same time I feel like I'm already on vacation mode. UGH! It's going to be tough, but I can do. What other option do I have??
This weekend was pretty great, as well. Saturday was pretty laid back. Had lunch with my parents, came home for awhile, then went to the newspaper office to hang out with a couple friends to work on projects that are due this week. I came home, then went out to run errands, had dinner with my parents and drove around town. It's kind of our family's thing to drive around and just listen to music. It might not sound that exciting to others, but I absolutely love it. It gives me a chance to get out and see a little more than just my corner of the world. It makes me appreciate this town so much more, to see the hard work that has gone into it.
|Perfect time to watch the sun set!|
As for today (Sunday), I went to church and had brunch with family at Buck Owen's Crystal Palace. It feels like the closest thing to Nashville right now, and I will take it. The food is incredible, and their brunch is one of the best. People from all over the world to visit the famous restaurant, as well as to see the Buckaroos play live on a Saturday night.
I enjoyed getting to spend time with good friends over breakfast/lunch, as well as enjoying the country atmosphere the Palace provides.
|My food…SO FULL!|
|Oh, hey, we saw Garth Brooks!|
|"Buck 'Em"..Say what?! LOL.|
The rest of my afternoon will now be spent finishing homework and preparing for the last week of school! WHOA! :D
That's all for now,
