Homework

Hey everyone!!

Welcome to the end of the year! Finals are less than a week away, and I can’t wait to not be a constant ball of stress that always has some form of homework due every single day. I won’t be finished with finals until next Thursday, so I’ve got a long week ahead of me 😅

But let’s fast forward real quick and talk about summer!!! I’m not sure if it will be a super exciting summer, but I am excited to go back home to be with my family and to also work at Baskin Robbins! I feel like that may be all that I talk about when I go home, but at least it will be the summer season and I hope to work more…

I’m also excited to go to the beach in July for my family vacation. We are going to DESTIN, FL!!! 🏖️ I get to meet up with part of my family that lives in Alabama, and I only get to see them twice a year and I can’t wait to see them because I feel like I never get to see them (hence the twice a year part)…

But that’s about all I know about my summer so far, but I’ll inform you all we get back to school in August!!

peace out and see you all soon,

Morgan

When you go to college, keep this in mind:  the breaks are a lie.

You’ll rarely get a homework-free break.  Even if the teacher gives you an assignment that wouldn’t be due until a month later, that still puts pressure on you.  It plants a nagging seed in your brain that bugs you, whispering, “You should be working on meeeee~.”

Just wanted to throw that out there so that some of you would develop better time-management skills than I have.

Hi, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable spring break…and that it gave you the necessary breather to finish the rest of this semester strongly!  Let me know in the comments what you did — whether it was a laid-back week at home or exciting vacation to some far-off location!

For me, spring break started with coming home to find my mom sick with the flu, which was really unfortunate.  On the bright side, since I was on spring break, it meant she could rest (and she needed to!), and I could take care of the cooking/cleaning up for my dad and me.  I did enjoy making a few new recipes that he apparently really loved…like an avocado-tomato-goat cheese sandwich on cheddar-garlic bread from Great Harvest Bread Company, a healthier version of an Alfredo-turkey pizza, and cinnamon/oatmeal/whole wheat/flax seed bread.

I also did some horsesitting for one of my clients early on during break, which I always enjoy.  This client has a Miniature horse (and a Quarter horse), and he’s one of the most adorable little guys you’ll ever meet.  He has one blue eye and one brown eye, loads of fluffy hair that falls in his eyes, and gorgeous pinto coloring (light brown/tan and white).  I love everything about him…well, I pretty much love every horse I meet, but that particularly goes for Minis.  They’re just so lovable and cute!

Most of the rest of my break was spent on homework, as I wrote in my previous post.  On the bright side, I worked extremely hard to get myself caught up or even ahead in reading, projects, papers, and more, so I was quite productive.  I’m not necessarily saying it will lighten up my still-crazy schedule, but it will definitely help…especially in the last few weeks of the semester, when a ton of stuff is due!  I also got a chance to get some nice runs (on trails and roads) and mountain bike rides in, and the weather was gorgeous for it.

Finally, by this past weekend, I felt comfortable enough to sneak away with my mom to enjoy lunch at St. Louis Bread Company and see Beauty and the Beast.  I’ve seen the play twice before, at a local high school and the Fox Theater, and I’ve definitely fallen in love with the music.  My favorite songs are probably Beauty and the BeastBe Our Guest, and If I Can’t Love Her (which was the only thing I didn’t like about the movie…it didn’t have that song!).  I thought the film was excellently done on many accounts — acting, dancing, special effects, orchestrations and singing — and I’d highly recommend you go see it.  In fact, I liked it so much I went to see it a second time just two days later with my friend.  And just for kicks, I did read the children’s storybook to my mom after the film…proof that you never really get rid of your childhood. 🙂

Blessings,

~Anna

Hi, everyone!

Are you as excited as I am about spring break?  Honestly for me, this semester has been quite stressful and really busy.  I’ve not been able to spend time doing anything other than work, class, homework, or (a little bit) of sleep, and quite frankly, that’s not good for my physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual health.  So for me, spring break is going to be a small opportunity for much-needed decompression and “me time”.  I say small because I’m going to spend a large chunk of break working on a presentation, four or five papers, regular reading/homework for several of my classes, and discussion boards/quizzes/a test for my eight-week online class that just started.  I remain hopeful that there will be a few spare moments, though, to get well-rested, spend a little quality time with my family and friends, and maybe even catch up on pleasure reading or go see Beauty and the Beast.  I’m sure many of you have a much more exciting, enjoyable break planned, but I am grateful for the week off if for no other reason than to catch up on many, many things!  I’m not sure I’d be able to feasibly get through the rest of the semester if I didn’t have spring break on the horizon!

In the meantime, I’m about halfway through the week…or a test, three labs, a presentation, and four regular class periods away from “freedom”!  I’m enjoying the cold weather and snow, though.  See my picture below of my Monday drive to Fontbonne…the snow is so pretty.

Happy spring break — stay safe and enjoy your time off!
