Currently, vol 50.

Another week has come and gone. My stress level is ever increasing, and my quality of sleep is decreasing. We are approaching finals! I am very ready for summer, but there are two weeks of classes and finals in my way. Today is going to be a good day. It is my cousin's youngest child's baptism, and it is the same cousin's middle child's 2nd bday party. Oh, also the blackhawks are playing! 
Yes, yes they are.
So here is what's going on currently...
Reading: well finished reading The Fault in Our Stars. This was such a good book. 
Thinking: about the homework I should have done this weekend, but errands took longer than anticipated. Also, I just didn't want to do it. 
Listening: Ellie Goulding in the background.  
Writing: this blog post. I need to blow dry my hair though...
Smelling: my shampoo? 
Wishing: for warmer weather. Chicago is supposed to get rained on all week. :( It's only in the fifties too. 
Hoping: for a good day, but I still want to be home early to do homework and pack. 
Wearing: a towel on my head and a t-shirt that is so big it's a dress. 
Loving: that there are buds on the trees and tulips are coming up! 
Wanting: for finals to be done and over. 
Needing: to eat breakfast. 
Feeling: stressed beyond comprehension. 

I hope you all have a good week!

Currently, vol 49.

Happy Easter!!! I hope you all have a great day! I am currently celebrating the resurrection of my Savior! I was in the office at church today since my mom wasn't feeling well. Later, we will have dinner with some extended family. :) As for now, I am reading a book while snuggling with my dogs.

Currently, vol 48.

I am so glad to be writing this post because it means I am at home. I survived the worst day possible at Panera. Our air conditioning wasn't working, we were so busy we had a line out the door with grumpy customers, and we ran out of bagels at 10am. This never happens. I am also glad to say I survived my first 5k. My mom, our friend Laurie, and myself all signed up for the Race to Wrigley. It is a charity race for the children's hosp in Chicago. I ran most of the race while they walked. It was a very fun experience. I now want to train for the Shamrock Shuffle 8k in April.
Running in the Race to Wrigley 5k!
Yes my mother is an interesting person. 
While running, I looked up and directly in the middle of the picture, I saw
the John Hancock. This is why I love Chicago.
The ever amazing Wrigley Field (the home of the Chicago Cubs). 
So here is what's going on currently...
Reading: Textbooks, articles, and nursing journals oh my! I am ready for the semester to be over. 
Thinking: I really shouldn't be going out to Chili's with Chris and Ary tonight. I have an exam Wednesday. 
Listening: to the washer running, the cat running around, and Pompeii in the background. 
Thinking: about wanting to take a nap, but that is not in the cards today. 
Smelling: the dark chocolate pomegranate thingys I was snacking on. 
Wishing: for sunny weather. We had a hail storm yesterday, and I heard it was pretty bad. Chicago didn't get hit, but my home which is straight north of the city did.
Hoping: for the week to go by slowly, or that I can get the proper amount of studying done between now and Wed @ 8am. 
Wearing: My work clothes still.
Loving: the warmer weather! Tomorrow is supposed to be 40, but other than that 50/60s are fantastic. 
Wanting: for finals to be done and over. 
Needing: a weekend to myself. 
Feeling: apprehensive about the week ahead. 

Have a great week everyone.

Currently trying to survive.

I miss you Gramps. It was 6 years on the 1st that you left this earth.
I am thankful for all the memories I had with you.
I love you dearly. 
I have been unproductive to the max this weekend. So I will make this another short post, and I will finially do my homework. I worked Thurs, Fri, and today. I worked out at my gym Fri and Sat. I went to the movies to see God's Not Dead with mom and gma. It was a pretty good movie. Now I am trying to play catch up until 5 when I will  be picking up a friend and meeting another at Olive Garden.

I am being productive. No more blogging until the homework is complete probably around.... never. Who are we kidding, nursing students never have free time.
