Good news folks. I'm giving myself a break. I've been toying with the idea of quitting one of my internships a lot here lately. I didn't really like the work I was doing at internship #1 (disclaimer: I do realize it's intern work. It is going to suck. I get it. Buttt.. my other internships never sucked this bad.) The people in the office weren't very friendly, I had to sit on a barstool, AND I never really felt like a valuable member of the team. Plus a girl has to find time to eat, sleep, and do her homework! Going to school fulltime + 2 jobs leaves very little wiggle room for free time. So I finally bit the bullet and quit.
I am in love with my internship at Triple 8 (internship #2) and now I feel like I can put my full focus into it and school. Plus it's my senior year! I need to stop and smell the roses. I had to do what was best for me. I tried to be a badass and have these two internships at once to plump up my resume, but it just wasn't going to work out for me. From that, I've learned a few things:
1. Cut things out that weigh you down. If it makes you unhappy, drop it. Nothing is worth making you miserable if you can easily fix it.
2. I don't like having no room for free time. Sometimes I just need to unwind and doing something mindless, like watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians, for a little bit before working or doing homework. Being so scheduled that I don't have time to sit down and eat is ridiculous. Cut that crap out while you still can.
3. This is my SENIOR YEAR. I still can't get over it. In 8 months, I'll be forced into adulthood. Let's worry about that when I get there. For now, I will enjoy my adolescence.. at least what's left of it.
So anywho, that's where I am now. Classes are going swell. Work is phenom. Football season is in full swing. I'm just lovin' life :)
With that being said, I wanted to share a few things I'm just lovvvving here lately:
This Old Navy Sweater: They're currently out of the black and white polka dot online, but I snagged this one a few weeks ago in-store. Polka dots are huge this fall and I have been dying to wear this ever since I bought it! I wore it to work today, later to class, then to dinner tonight (with a top knot and neon shorts) and I have never gotten more compliments on an outfit before!
I've been loving gold this fall, and when one of my favorite blogs, For Chic Sake, posted this glittery quatrefoil iPhone background, I about died. Love. Download it now and swoon over your new wallpaper.
Love this quote. Sometimes it's hard to remember this.
When people write songs for me.
When I get praised in class for sharing my opinion/thoughts.
When people respond quickly to texts.
30 Rock. Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, and Tracy Morgan are a magical mix.
Laughing outloud when I'm by myself. That's when something's really funny.
When people are sweet for no reason. Like my friends. And the barista at Starbucks. And the random girl next to me in class today.
Freshly washed sheets.
Having energy! I think I'm loving this the most. For the past few months, I have been a zombie. I'm beyond over it.
Welllll.. this blog post took a turn for the long-ness. What? I don't know. I'm tired. Love you all :) XO
