week by week 5 & 6 // what do you mean I have a life now

I really don't want to be writing this blog post, fyi. I'd much rather be sleeping or reading my homework (just kidding) or watching Netflix. But I promised I would recap these past two weeks, because that's my job as a blogger.

I wish sleeping could be my job. I'm really good at that.

where did I leave you guys? I honestly can't remember. It was the week before going back to school, and a lot happened.

I went to an ice cream social and had massive throwbacks to when I was on student council and yearbook staff. *shudders and smiles simultaneously*

I saw my best friend for the first in what felt like forever (while in reality it was just 4ish months) and had many talks about life and the future and music and also went exploring and it was awesome.

I also discovered what a failtastic activity planner I am.

I went to our Bible Quizzing kick-off and ran into one of my professors which was probably one of the strangest experiences I've had recently.

I discovered that the best friends are the ones who are willing to call you at 11 o'clock at night to talk about your hyperactive thoughts and then isn't mad when you don't feel like talking. Mad props, you. You know who are you.

I did a lot of packing.

I went to the zoo and didn't die. I hurt, but I survived.

I got to see my freaking adorable niece and make faces at her and it was amazing.

And that was that week.

This latest week was an adventure I'd really prefer to not ever relive. I moved back to school, which involved moving boxes, moving furniture, moving from place to place...there was a lot of moving involved. I was very tired. I still am very tired. I know it was silly of me to think "Oh, once school starts up I'll be able to go to church regularly again..." but I really did hope that. However, I was so exhausted that I couldn't make it today. It's frustrating, but I know that if I went, I would be in so much pain or falling asleep so much that my attitude wouldn't be on worshipping God--it would be on how I was feeling. And if there's anything I've learned in the past year, it's that you can worship God any time, any place. He's not going to judge you if you're having church flat on your back on your couch.

At least, that's my opinion.

First two days of classes were okay. I will have an 8 o'clock class this week instead of at the 2:10 slot, but that works out perfectly so I can have a break to get up and walk around. I locked up so much the first day.

Fun story: I sat on some stairs Thursday night. I almost fell asleep and fell off the stairs. That would've been exciting.

I'm probably going to post pictures of our room soon, but it's not quiet all put together yet (I haven't braved the heights to put up the lights...scary.) so that'll be in a few days. Maybe. Life is fluid right now, as I'm sure all you college students get. You eat breakfast at 11 o'clock, you go for late night Walmart runs, you take naps whenever you can...it's a good and strange life.

Lately, I've been enjoying Halsey and Bjork as my chill study music (and Jars of Clay too, now that I'm thinking about it.) I'm reading a few psychology books--I finished Challenger Deep. And now I need to reevaluate my life and write an eventual blog post about what I learned. I'm also reading The Midnight Thief and am compiling my October TBR. Mwahahahahahaha. My tv shows as of late has been Gravity Falls (as always) and Chuck. I've watched a season in like 3 days. No Teen Wolf, but pretty close. I'm also watching Spooksville which is silly and cute and pretty funny for a kid show. At least, I'm pretty sure it's a kids show (then again Gravity Falls is a kids show and season two has me like O.O)

what have you been up to lately? Are you surviving school, or have you even started yet? What are your recent obsessions/interests?

have a great weekend, guys!


  1. Yesssss Halsey :) I love your music taste.

    I pray college goes well for you. Hang in there. *virtually sends spoons to your rescue*

    1. dawww thanks, dear. I hope your college experience is rockin' as well. :)

  2. Your niece is super cute. Moving is annoying I am in the process of it right now, and all of my things are in shambles.
    Hope you enjoy college.

    1. the struggle is real, Skye. My room finally unpacked, but it's weird getting used to living in a new place. But I'll bet it'll be home sweet home by the end of the year.

  3. Wow it's been super eventful for you! I wish you well in your endeavors. ^ ^ I went to the zoo as well recently haha!
