Hi everyone! I’ve been a very bad blogger the past few weeks and I haven’t been posting regularly at all, which I feel completely terrible about. The last few weeks of the semester were insanely busy and then I got sick during finals week, which just completely complicated everything. I decided to start doing “7 Quick Takes” posts on Fridays to keep track of things that happen during the week but don’t make it into my other posts. So here we go!
1. Goodbye Spring Semester!
The semester ended and I moved out of the residence halls for the very last time. I’m living off-campus for my next and final year of college so I won’t be moving back into the dorms! I managed to get all of my belongings packed into a minivan and transported back to my parents’ house where everything now sits in the hallway waiting for me to move it into my room, which brings me to my second thing…
2. Refreshing my room at home.
I’m sort of remodeling/redoing my bedroom at home in order to have a nice space for the summer and leave it nice and functional for the next person to move in! This means taking down shelves, redoing the bed, pulling up the carpet and stripping the wood floor, and repainting. Plus getting some new furniture that may or may not travel to school with me after the summer is over.
3. New nanny job for the summer.
I started my summer job this week, nannying for three kids. I work ten hours a day, three days a week, which is nice because I get a really long weekend to do stuff like remodeling my bedroom! The kids are the cutest so it should be fun. It’ll definitely be better than working at McDonalds.
4. First Communions and Confirmations
I got to shoot the First Communion and Confirmation ceremonies at my church this week. It’s the first paid non-class related shoot I’ve had in a while so it was nice to get out and shoot that.
5. Summer Pedicure
I got a nice ‘beginning of summer’ pedicure today to kick off the summer and get my toes in proper sandal shape. I’m trying to branch out beyond the blues and greens that I’m drawn to so I picked a bright coral color from OPI called Cajun Shrimp and I think it looks pretty good!
6. YouTube videos!
I started uploading some beauty videos to YouTube more regularly this week and I’m hoping that this is something I can keep up with along with more blog posts. Summer should be slightly more relaxed and hopefully contain more free time so we’ll see how that goes!
7. IronMan 3
I saw IronMan 3 this week with Branden and a couple other friends. It was a really good movie and some have even said it’s the best IronMan movie so far! It has some interesting twists that I won’t give away here but let me say it is definitely a fun time.
