Silver Lining

A week is gone and I have now returned from my thanksgiving break. Understandably for the past week I have not had the chance to post anything on my blog since I was busy spending time with family and friends. However, I had an amazing time getting to meet up with friends I haven’t seen in the past three months, hanging out with family on thanksgiving day, and getting to step away from the hustle and bustle of college living.

…but a week is only so long and now it is time to get back to work for these last three weeks of school before I am off for winter break! While I am happy that I only have to get through two weeks more of classes and one week of finals, the days leading up to the end are going to be some of the busiest I’ve ever had with essays, podcasts, projects, garments, and plastic objects all due in less than two weeks. So in order to keep my sanity (which I can already feel slipping) I am going to go out of my way to post every day of December until the end of the semester about one thing that makes me happy. With thanksgiving having just passed and Christmas just around the corner, I think that this is the perfect time to remember the things that make us happy:) Wish me luck in tackling these last few weeks of my first semester of college!

Parents Weekend Fun

This weekend went so fast.

This past weekend was parent’s weekend up at Syracuse, and so for the first time since August I was able to see all of them (all the people at least) in the same place at the same time! They came up late Friday night and so I got to say hi to everyone before they had to go check in.

Saturday was where all the fun happened. FINALLY, I got to show off the brutally hard work I have been slaving away on for the last month and a half: my three dresses for the fashion show! I had my sister and two of my friends model for me and got to style them, do their hair and makeup and take lots of pictures. After the show we had a late lunch at Varsity’s and then we hung out on campus until we went out to dinner that night.

Sunday was more laid back and I took them to an awesome breakfast spot, Funk’n’Waffles, on campus and we went to the mall in the afternoon. As we said good by I could tell that they were sad to have to let me go all over again, but it’s really not for that long. As of today there are 18 days until my dad drives up on a Friday night to bring me home for Thanksgiving! And then I get to help my mom set up our house and decorate since we are hosting her side of the family this year. I have a feeling that these next two and a half weeks will go by fast. 🙂

 

Busy Bee

I have been so extremely busy lately! Even though this week is coming to an end, I want to reflect on last weekend.

Last weekend, I was graced with a visit from my mom and two grandmas. On Saturday when they came up we went out to dinner and I was able to stay over in the hotel with then (which was nice since I didn’t have to worry about communal bathrooms for once). Then on Sunday I took them touring around campus and we went to the mall Destiny USA to go shopping. I spent all of Sunday with them until 2 am when my mom dropped be off back at my dorm.

I’ve definitely missed having my family around to spend time with, but it was a really nice experience to show them all around and show them what I have been doing so far at Syracuse. I can’t wait until my mom, dad and sister come up for parent’s weekend so I can spend more time with them and show them the three dresses I have made for the fashion show!

14 more days!
