Yep, I'm still here! I really did mean to post this week, but instead I succumbed to the fresh hell that is known as finals week. I studied, studied, and studied some more. In the end I prevailed with two A's and one B, and I couldn't be more proud! The fact that I got a frickin 100% on one of my finals still makes me beam with happiness. I've always had good grades, but it's because I work at it. Academics isn't always my strong suit, and I have to work hard, but in the end, I always feel so proud, because I know I did my best.
Anywho, now I'm free, and it's the best feeling in the world! The only downside? I also succumbed to the "post-finals crash". I've spent the day sick in bed with what appears to be a lovely combo of blood sugar problems, food allergen problems, dehydration, and exhaustion. Sissy was super sweet though and fixed me bone broth and brought me meds, and I've spent the day drinking a ton of liquids, sleeping, and giving a long overdue visit to my second family, Grey's Anatomy. My brain and body don't always agree, but the body never lies, and today it was just telling me that enough is enough. All in all, I think a day of TLC was a day well spent. I'm hoping to be back on my feet tomorrow, and truly embrace winter break! I'm so excited to catch up on projects, deep clean my room, spend time with family, watch Christmas movies, bake, have photoshoots, etc! And most especially I'm excited to see all my friends over winter break!! I had friends that went in all directions for college, and I couldn't be more psyched to catch up with them!
Whether you're done with finals, or you're getting ready to head into them, always remember to take care of yourself- get plenty of sleep, eat right, and stay hydrated!
Enjoy your weekend!
