The Bling Ring

It’s official. I’ve reached a whole new level of “tired”. The past two weeks have just been moving on from one thing to another. That little thing called homework usually gets completed at two o’clock in the morning. I’m not complaining. I’m loving every minute of being busy and involved, but can’t a girl get a solid 8 hours of sleep at least once a week? I guess it’s as they say, “You can sleep when you’re dead”.

With a multitude of things for Fontbonne the week before last, I was ready for a break, but Fashion Week appeared and consumed my entire weekend. It was fabulous! My roommate and I helped out backstage with shows Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We didn’t stop the entire weekend. Between Fashion Week and Griffin Girls I could barely move by Sunday night. Carly and I made an event of the entire weekend by trying places we’d never been after each show. Corner 17 and Coffee Cartel were two of the spots. We ended the weekend with dinner and a movie (The Bling Ring).

I thought it would be a smooth week with school, and it was, but it was also not-so-conveniently packed with a million things to do. Meetings, events, class, practice, homework. The cycle goes on and on. This cycle was briefly interrupted when I attended The Lumineers concert Friday evening. It was a great show! I got to see one of my dearest friends from back home, and that’s always a plus.  This weekend at Fontbonne was Sibz Weekend. After a wonderful, intense Griffin Girl practice on Saturday, I helped out with Fontbonne’s Cupcake Wars and Magician performance for the weekend. We had a great turnout of Fontbonne siblings! Sunday, the day of rest (apparently), was spent buying food and necessities for another crazy week, followed by loads of studying and homework. Oh, the life of a college student. It may seem crazy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Thanks for reading..
