Back From the Dead

Today is August 15th, 2013. I don’t remember the last day I posted on here, but I can try to fill in some of the blanks regarding what I’ve been up to since my last blog post. You know, in case any of you actually care or are still interested in/reading my blog.

Life has been pretty hectic lately, but mostly in a positive way. I’ve just been busy nonstop for weeks… I worked like crazy at my job right up until I had to drive up to my college town and move into my new apartment. Then, I turned around and headed home a few days later, spent the next three days hurriedly finishing up my horrible summer World Lit class, and then left the next morning for a week trip to the beach. The beach trip was lovely and all, but the day after returning home, again I left to go back to my college town and sort out my job situation over there… only to come back home two weeks later just “for the weekend” which ended up being an entire week instead, and now finally today I am headed back up to school once and for all. Well, probably until Labor Day weekend when my family will want me to come home yet again. Sigh….

Because of the constant busy-ness and running around like a crazy person, my summer break hasn’t really felt like a “break” at all. I had some pretty high hopes as far as things I would get done this summer, but as you can imagine, I eventually just ran out of time for everything.

But while I may not have done EVERYTHING I had hoped to accomplish this summer, I still can’t really complain. I got an easy, 3-credit English class out of the way while working a ton at my job and making some pretty good money. I’ve got a better idea of what I might want my major/s and minor to be, but I still think I should take the introductory business courses in finance, marketing, and management science before I make a final decision. I got accepted for a PR position in a club that I’m currently involved with at school, which is really exciting because it’s a year-long position and will also help me determine if that may also be something I’m interested in. And in regards to my social life, I was able to see most of my friends from back home in one way or another, and was also able to see my boyfriend a good 4 times this summer (can’t wait to stop the long-distance in a few days!) I also made a few new friends this summer as well :)

And of course, the overall process of moving into the new apartment certainly had its moments, but I am happy to say that I absolutely LOVE this new apartment! My roommate Katherine and I are almost finished putting the final touches on the decorative and organizational aspects of the apartment. I can’t wait to officially be settled in because not only will we be able to finally relax in our new space, but I’ll be able to snap some photos of the new place and share some of my decorating and DIY projects I’ve done around the apartment so far!

So… It’s been really busy lately, but now that things are beginning to settle into a more predictable routine of school, work, blogging (hopefully), extracurriculars, etc., I’m feeling much less stressed and more prepared for this upcoming school year. I’m pretty excited to see what my junior year of college will bring. I really do hope this year will involve a little less studying 24/7 so that I can make some more free time for myself and actually enjoy my second to last year in college :)

In the meantime, I’ve got one more week of summer break to enjoy before classes resume for the fall semester. I’m going to make every one of these next 7 days count :)
