This is going to be a quick blog, considering I am drowning in homework to complete for this week. It’s been a snowy day here in Chicago, I hope it is one of the last of this winter, although I doubt it. Aside from the snow, it has been brutally cold this weekend, making doing anything except staying inside under a blanket just about unbearable. I am beyond ready for spring to arrive. It looks like the end of this week might bring us much more comfortable temperatures, so I am trying to keep my focus on those days to get me through the cold morning walks through campus. The sun is setting a little bit later every day. Soon, 5 pm won’t feel like midnight.
Aside from homework and planning, I carved out some time to treat myself this weekend for Valentine’s Day. I went home to hang out with me Mom and enjoyed some delicious meals. I also got myself a manicure. Not having to paint my own nails is near the top of my list of favorite things. I also spent a little time working on a DIY project for my bedroom at home. Over winter break, I began remodeling my room and transforming it from a hot pink, teenage girl heaven into a classy, gray, rustic, oasis.
I recently saw some mason jar lanterns on Etsy that would fit perfectly with my theme, but they were a little pricey. With the help of some really talented and creative friends, we crafted the same product at almost no cost. I absolutely could have not done this myself, so I am very grateful to have such generous and hard-working friends!
That’s about all I have to report this week! I can’t wait to get up in the morning and shovel snow (sarcasm is difficult to convey through the internet, but I hope you caught it). I hope everyone has a wonderful and productive week! Stay warm!
