My Week in Photos

Between studying for finals, packing for home and an impromptu visit from my grandparents, my week has been far from boring.  I've been doing so much lately that I'm more than ready to relax at home.  To make my weeks a little less stressful, my mom sent me a care package filled with the silver tree in the bottom left of the picture and a little something for every day of December.  She did the same thing last year, and it's a great tradition to make finals easier to manage.  The paper voodoo dolls, mustache and ear man were all gifts included, as well as energy drinks, hot chocolate and yummy smelling lotions.  This upcoming week I have five finals left, out of the seven I had total this semester.  On Wednesday I'll finally be able to head home for a month to see friends, family and to drive my new car!  I hope that everyone has a wonderful week, but until next time; what was the highlight of your week?  Did you get a fabulous new haircut?  Did you ace that insanely hard math exam?

My Secret Admirer

December is a hard month for me to get through. As soon as I get back from Thanksgiving break, all I can think of is going back home, even though I have so much to do before that option presents itself. The third week of December is finals week for me, and I am stressed beyond belief this year, due to having seven exams.  Thankfully my mom helped relieved my stress by sending me a care package filled with one gift for each day of the month.  I love each of the little trinkets I get from her, it shows just how much she cares about me.  I like to tell people that this little man that hangs on my ear whispers me sweet things.  Maybe if I'm lucky he'll even whisper the answers to all my exams...
