Thank goodness it's almost the weekend :)

Hey everyone!
I hope you have all had terrific weeks so far. I am so glad tomorrow is Friday and Thanksgiving break is approaching! I cannot wait to go home and see all of my friends and family! It's going to be great! My past two weeks have been super busy so I am really looking forward to being able to go out this weekend and being able to sleep in.

I had such a great weekend last week! Three of us girls went home with my friend Kaitlyn, which was wonderful. We got to get off of campus and have a delicious home cooked meal. And guess what? We went to the outlet mall! It was such a success. We all hit the jackpot at J.Crew. I got two adorable cardigans, the navy Jackie cardi and this adorable plum cardigan for... $25!! I also got a great fitting pair of cords that were $25 as well and an adorable headband. It was a total success. We then headed to the Ralph Lauren outlet where I bought 4 of their signature v-necks, I love those! I wear them all the time to class, they are so comfortable. I also got a pair of black sweatpants which will look cute to wear to class as well. It was so nice to shop! We all then headed back to her house and watched movies and had a slumber party. Sunday we headed to Target and Wal-Mart because we were all in desperate need of food for our rooms. I stocked up and got so many snacks. This week was pretty hectic- 2 big tests on Monday but I did well on both of them! I am so very relieved and now I can really have a relaxing, fun weekend! I will definitely post next week over break!
Have a great Thursday night!
xx, M
PS: Any of you who are seeing Twilight, I am so jealous!! Have fun, enjoy Edward!

Hey y'all!
I am so sorry I have not been very diligent with my blogging lately. I have been super busy! Things have really picked up and I have had quite a bit of homework and lots of studying\papers. I really like UD though, everyone is so terribly friendly and nice! Things did get really hard right after fall break though. That was the first time I got super stressed and called my mom a few times in tears. She was super supportive and got me through those tough two weeks. I definitely learned the importance of being assertive and talking to my professors and reaching out for help. Plus I reminded myself that I have only been in college for two months and it is quite different from high school. How are y'all doing so far? Have you had stressed out calls to Mom yet?
I have a really great new strategy though that has helped me budget my time. I write down all of the things I have to do in a day.. Physics homework, eat lunch, meet someone for dinner etc.. and give them each a certain amount of time. That allows me not to get wrapped up on just one assignment and allows me to get everything done. It is really helpful! And at the bottom of each day I write down something in my planner to look forward to or a positive thing. Y'all should try it out, it really has relieved a lot of my stress!

So weekends! Oh weekends, how I love them! The weekends are super fun. Lots of fun parties and things to do. Halloween has been the best weekend so far. It was so fun to see everyone dressed up and look totally different for the night. I definitely opted for a cute costume rather than a super trashy one. This past weekend the girls on my floor and I did Dance Marathon. It was so fun but so long! I am so tired today and my body is sore! We danced for 12 hours! Yes, 12 hours! I have made some super great friends too, one of which is super girly like us and loves everything pink too! Those are the big things going on with me lately.

I will try my hardest to be more diligent with blogging!
Have a great week!
xx, M
