Everything may not have a place and I certainly haven’t finished finding a home for all of my clothes, but I am moved home for the summer! I’m so excited for the next few months. It seriously began to feel as if this year was never going to end, and I wasn’t sure I’d ever make it home in one piece. Somehow, the year came to a close, and an absolute miracle occurred-everything fit into the house!
I’ve already started reading and walking my dog. In just a few days, I will be back at my internship at the hospital that I was at last summer. I’m excited to start back up, but I have enjoyed the week back to myself. I had a chance to do a lot of cooking and relaxing.
I can’t say that things are more exciting than they were at school, but I think I like it that way. I needed a break from the hecticness that is school and many jobs and executive board positions and internships. I’m definitely going to make the most of my time home!
So far, things have been pretty exciting..Here’s why:
Grades are in, and I got all A’s and B’s. I did want straight A’s to boost my GPA, but I’ll take that for sure. Next semester, I am really going to try to get those A’s.
Vacation plans for 2014 are being made! Kevin & I are planning a weekend trip away to celebrate our 7 year anniversary, my sister wants to take a trip to Nashville, and for Mother’s Day, we let my mom know that we’ll be going to Disney World in November! I can’t wait for each trip!
I bought a bike, and I’m so excited to ride it! Of course, the week I buy it, temperatures are in the 40′s and 50′s, but I’m banking on some warm weather soon so I can ride everywhere. I’m really excited to bring it back with me to UIC and ride everywhere…except maybe not to class, since I live so close (it would probably take more time to lock the bike up than to walk to class.)
The Blackhawks advancing in the playoffs has been crazy exciting and brings back so many memories from previous years. Can’t wait to see what happens…hopefully the journey continues!
What’s next on the agenda:
I’ve been invited to 4 graduation parties in the next 3 weeks. I also plan on visiting friends in the upcoming weeks…it already feels like so long since I’ve seen everyone!
It’s time to start baking some things! I really need to take advantage of the cold(er) weather to turn on the oven and bake…I really won’t want that on in the heat of the summer.
I need to get organized for my internship and ready to go to make the most out of my time back there.
Talk to you soon! Keep enjoying time off!
