Monday’s Musings

Hey Cats!

Happy Monday! And it’s extra happy for those of us who have today off! I definitely need this extra day to get my ducks in a row before I go back to school! I realized last night that I don’t have any pens or notebooks and folders for my classes. Oops. I also have a few other errands to run, and other chores I’ve been putting off all week. Yay for the last minute!

Last night I met up with some of my friends for coffee, and we had a great time! They are always so encouraging, and I’m so thankful to have them in my life. We don’t get together as often as we would like, but I always really look forward to hearing about and celebrating each other’s accomplishments and goals. Since this is our last semester, we talked a lot about jobs, future plans, and all of the upcoming changes in our lives. We discussed that it can be a little scary, but it’s also a really, really exciting time, and that made me think of this quote:

be-brave-quote

It can be scary to not know what’s ahead, but as my friends and I discussed, we don’t have anything to be afraid of. This is a very exciting time in our lives, and it’s a good time to do things we’ve never had the opportunity to do before, or won’t always have the opportunity to do, like go move to another state or travel around. Being brave with your life can mean lots of different things. It can mean taking a job in a new town, or taking a temporary internship in an industry you’re dying to work at. It can mean jumping at every chance for a new adventure, or it can mean taking a step back to re-evaluate your priorities. It can mean putting yourself out there to make new friends, but it can also mean recognizing that true friendship is a rare find. For me, being brave with my life means trusting that God will fulfill His promises to me, even if that happens in a unique way. It also means being confident in my abilities at work, school, and even here on my blog. Being brave is investing time and effort into new friendships at the tail end of my college career. It also means not settling even when I’m not sure when another opportunity will come along. Whatever being brave with your life means to you, I encourage you this week (and this year and forever) to do that, and remember that you don’t have anything to be afraid of!

That’s all for meow!

Friday’s Five

Hey Cats!

Happy Friday! I’m in Houston this weekend visiting my bestie Ashley! I’m sure I’ll have lots to share next week! But this week isn’t quite over yet, so let me share with you what I’ve been loving this week:

1. First is this article “In Defense of Having No Idea What to do With Your Life” by NYC PR Girls, one of my newest favorite blogs. As we all know, and I’m sure will be hearing more about as I search for jobs this year (STOP, old), I really don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.  It makes me feel better to know that there are many other people in the same boat, and that it will be okay!

Next is the Kendra Scott GlamRocks Collection that launched Wednesday. My favorites are these Ellie studs in multicolor drusy, but the whole collection is fabulous, so check it out when you have the chance!

3. Next is a chance for me to toot my own horn a bit. I’ve been to the gym every day this week! I’ve never enjoyed working out, but for some reason it’s my new hobby. It feels good both mentally and physically to get some exercise, and I’m going to keep it up as long as I can!

Next is Sassy Kate, because why not?

Milania

 

Saving the best for last: Jersey’s back, trolls. I’m so excited for this season, mostly because of Dina and Milania. I think that Milania Giudice is the true star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and apparently it’s a common opinion. My roommates and I found this hilarious Buzzfeed article with 15 glorious reasons why Milania is everyone’s favorite Housewife. (Also filed under: reasons Milania Giudice is my spirit animal)

I’m linking up with Amy & Karli today for Oh Hey Friday!

 

Have a great weekend! That’s all for meow!

Monday’s Musings

Hey Cats!

Another week closer to summer! Actually, that’s not really too exciting for me, as I have yet to figure out what I’m doing this summer- eek! Hopefully I can figure that out in the next couple of weeks.

Today’s quote actually goes along quite well with that anxiety of not knowing what to do…

DVF quote

I have been in a bit of a tizzy lately because I feel like everyone has plans for graduation except for me. People are either getting married, going to medical school, or know exactly what job they want to have, and I feel like I’m way behind because I have none of those things. However, this quote is a great reminder that there are many people who don’t know what they want to do, and it’s okay. I mean, Diane Von Furstenberg said it, and she turned out just fine! This week, I’m going to try and focus on the type of woman I want to be- kind, caring, intelligent, and successful (to name just a few)- rather than what job I’ll get after I graduate. That will all fall into place!

That’s all for meow!

#finals2012

Hey Cats!

So, it’s finals week.

Gross.

Actually, I have a love-hate relationship with finals. Hate for the obvious reasons of “I’ve been in the library since dawn and I have NO RECALL OF THIS INFORMATION WHATSOEVER”, and love because it means classes are almost over and I can go home and eat real food and blog and craft for days. And they mean I will soon find out my GPA for the semester, which makes me really excited. As long as it’s good. Which brings me to my next point.

I have BIG NEWS EVERYONE. I think I have decided what I’m going to do with my life. Finally.

I have decided to go to law school! Well not like, now, obviously, since I’m only in my second year of college, but I have decided to head in that direction. I’ve been thinking about being a lawyer for a long time, but I finally decided to commit and make it my actual, concrete goal. AND I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. Last week I went to pre-professional advising and had a nice, encouraging chat with Karen. It was so great, she was such a gem. Hopefully this is actually what I want to do and I haven’t just been watching Legally Blonde too much.

So there’s that.

Also, I’ve been thinking about what I plan to do with my time over Christmas break. First, I will sleep. For as long as I want. And it will be blissful. You see, I somehow got 8 a.m. classes four days a week this semester, and I seem to have something to do early every Saturday, so I can’t remember the last time I slept in. Next, I will frantically run around and buy everyone Christmas gifts. I have an idea of what I’m getting my Princess SisterCat, but I can’t say because she will read this. I have NO IDEA what I’m getting my parents. Maybe I’ll just limit my whiny phone calls to once a week, they will LOVE THAT. After I have all my shopping done, I will catch up with my high school friends. They’re so great, and I love them. Most of us are scattered all over the place, so we only see each other during Thanksgiving/Christmas/Summer breaks. We’re already planning a potluck dinner, since we’re all so excited that we’re basically gourmet chefs now that we don’t live in the dorms.We’ll also probably FREAK OUT about the fact that WILLIAM AND KATE ARE HAVING A BABY OMG. Out senior year was the Royal Wedding, and we stayed up all night and had a party and woke up at 4 to watch it live and wore dresses to school. So we’ll obviously be having a baby shower for them.  Also, I’ll be hanging out with my Princess SisterCat. We’re besties, and we’re going to have a great time being together for an entire month. Especially when we have our Christmas Eve sleepover! I can’t wait. I’ll also eat way too much, but luckily big bulky sweaters are in. Just kidding. Kind of. And then I’ll do whatever I want, but that’s not any different from any other day of my life.

As I mentioned earlier, it’s finals week. So I leave you with this. I hope you can control yourselves better than this girl. (sometimes I feel like doing this to the annoying freshman couple that makes out on the couch in the libs, but I don’t. Thank God.)

Until next time!
