It's nearing the end of the semester and that whole 'Senioritis' thing is really kicking in. Even though I'm staying for an extra year, the fact that most of my other friends are graduating soon really makes me want to blow off school and just have fun this week. It's really hard to stay motivated and focused when the weather is so nice and so many others are out enjoying it. It is my own lack of planning though that is keeping me busy these days. I've really got to learn to start budgeting my time better.
It's that time of the year again. The last stretch before finals when it seems like everything is due and there's just not enough hours in the day to do it all. It just doesn't seem like this amount of work should be happening in my life just when the weather is starting to become perfect. My roommate says she's never seen me more frazzled and I think she might be right. This blog seems to have fallen by the wayside and it might just stay there until I have more exciting things going on in my life.
Yesterday marked the two year anniversary of when I lost my mother and one of the most amazing women I have ever known. On Saturday my dad, sisters, cousin Mackie and a few close friends (who I will admit are closer to family) all visited Crown Hill Cemetery to celebrate her life and release balloons in honor of her passing and her birthday, (her birthday is today) a tradition we started last year which couldn't be more perfect. The last picture is of me, Mackie, Hannah and Charlotte when we went and visited her on Sunday.
While this has been an emotional weekend, it was also one filled with joy because our home was filled with the laughter that comes with the love of family and sharing our memories of my mother. She was the inspiration for this blog and I am thankful for the years we shared together every day.
