the 9th Week Break, in Spring

First of all, happy first day of Spring and Palm Sunday.  This marks the end of an absolutely wonderful spring break.

At the beginning of the break, those three friends I mentioned last week came to visit, and what a wonderful time we had.  Catching up on all the crazy life happenings... touring Liberty... giggling uncontrollably over Bad Lip Reading songs (such as this classic)... watching both Star Trek movies (sorry, Karis, but Star Wars still has my heart)... going ice skating... coloring our hair pink and blue with hair chalk... handling real human lungs (thanks, Crystal, my sister and science nerd)... singing some very bad karaoke... well, you get the gist of it. ;)

Needless to say, their visit was such a fun way to start off the break.

The rest of the week wasn't nearly as eventful as those first three days, but it was still amazing and relaxing and fun.  The fam and I watched some good oldies (The Sound of Music truly is a masterpiece)... I did plenty of sewing on that shirt dress I'm making (it's almost done!)... I went shopping for fabric and clothes (both trips were quite successful)... I got to read for PLEASURE for the first time since Christmas break... and, of course, I did get some homework done. ;)

But, alas, school and work begin again tomorrow.  I'm okay with that though.

I'm ready to finish freshman year out strong.  I'm ready to finish working on the costumes for Beauty and the Beast and see the final result.  I'm ready to make the apparel project in sewing class (I'm making a winter coat which I'm SO excited about because I've been wanting to make on for ages).  I'm ready to give some more speeches.  I'm ready to continue learning about personal finance, worldview, and technology.  I'm ready to write the script for my short film.  I'm ready to work hard in school and my job, as something done unto the Lord, and not for men.

Mhmm, I'm so ready for this next half of the semester.

How was your spring break though?  Or have you had it yet?  Happy it's Spring? (I AM) :)

    1. Yes!! I'm so excited about it. It's actually the same story idea I was originally writing as a book a few years ago (but I am no author so I stopped, lol), about a criminal and a police dude who fall in love. Basically. ;)

  4. I just got back from spring break! I went to New Orleans and Memphis, and I already can't wait to go back.
    I've always wanted to color my hair! It looks like so much fun.
    Ahhhh I love shirt dresses. Such a classic style that you can do so much with! I love denim ones, and I'm hoping to buy one sometime this spring.
    It honestly is so shocking that school will be over in a couple months. Just before spring break, it seemed like I was slogging through mid-winter school blues, and now it's like SPRING HAS ARRIVED, SCHOOL IS OUT SOON and I'm like "What where did the time go what happened"

  5. That Beatles picture, though. Love it! That's so cool that you can sew! Very cool. And making a short film sounds like a blast. My friends and I did that once, and it was the most fun thing ever! Also, handling real human lungs? WHAT. That's crazy rad!

    1. Thankyou!! YES movie making seriously is SUCH fun. I love it so much. I'm really hoping I'll be able to actually film my short film script sometime, too (because yes it's so fun). Yep, human lungs!! It was nasty. Nasty cool though. ;) Thanks for the sweet comment!
