It's absolutely crazy that yesterday was the last day of finals for my freshman year. The second half of this year has taught me that I actually can balance many things and still have time for myself: doing homework, working out, spending time with my boyfriend, going to work, hanging out with friends, taking care of my mom, and more.
Honestly, everything that's been going on with my mom made the past semester difficult. After all of the nights that I stayed up late worrying and all of the mental breakdowns I had, I'm really proud of myself for keeping everything on track and doing really well academically. These past couple of months have made me very thankful to not only have such supportive friends and family but professors as well -- they always made sure to check in with me, and for the few times that I needed to miss class, they were totally okay with it.
My first year of college was awesome, but I'm looking forward to spending the next four months doing whatever I want! I can't wait to read, work out, see my friends, work, spend time with my boyfriend, get my business ideas rolling, and slowly but surely get back to posting on this little blog.
Thanks for sticking along after this little hiatus! XO
