5 Days Until My World Turns Upside Down

That’s right, 5 days from now I will be moving into my college dorm for my freshmen year. It is exciting, nerve-wracking, and overall completely terrifying. It is such a huge step in my life and I am kind of ready for it? But kind of not at the same time. It is at this moment where I have to rely on all of the life skills my parents taught me, where I have to lean on God more than ever, and where I just have to trust in Him and myself that I am going to be okay. It has been a long road coming, but I cannot believe it’s getting down to the end where my mom hands off the baton and sets me free. I keep trying to tell myself “hey, it’s okay” and to hone in the anxiety, I have to keep telling myself that she will miss me but it’s okay if we don’t talk 24/7. I have to keep reminding myself that I’m an adult now and there’s responsibility. I am not a kid anymore. It is so scary. This post is short, but trust me; my list of worries is a mile long. I can’t wait to see how my dorm room turns out though! πŸ™‚

Life is Good

When life is good, I post less and less, even if I do take lots of pictures. That’s where I found myself this past week. I spent the week with my brother and his family about an hour and a half away. I took so many pictures but we were so busy that I didn’t have much time to post any! Because of that, I am going to share some here today!!! I already miss them so much.

 

This is the best that I’ve felt in a long time and being an aunt is so rewarding.

A Look Back Through High School

As the school year ends and I get ready to graduateΒ in 3 days, I just wanted to reflect back on my time at EAU and how much it has changed my life.

I cannot imagine not going to EAU after all these years, it was the best decision I have ever made and I was the young age of 13 at the time. The faculty and students are amazing and make everyone feel welcome and a part of the EAU “family”. It was not like any other high school that I’ve seen. Our classes develop such a tight bond by the end of senior year because we don’t gain any new students throughout the years.

I have grown so much in my time at EAU and I am so appreciative of the teachers who helped that happen. Lots of encouragement and time spent to help better my skills. I will miss my teachers soooo much, but I feel so ready for college after going to EAU and earning my Associate’s degree already.

I will definitely miss all of the people, good memories, and comfort of my high school.

Here’s to the last 4 years of high school and to what awaits in the future!

 

Easter Prep & Econ Assignments

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetI can’t believe tomorrow is Easter! We’re also officially a week away from my senior prom. I can’t believe how fast this year is going.

It was close to 80 degrees here in IN today so it was the perfect day to go out and get my Econ assignment done. My teacher gave us the option between 3 different 100 point assignments and I chose the one where I have to go around to different businesses and take a selfie with their logo or product. My best friend drove me to the mall since I can’t drive and it was so beautiful at the outdoor mall!

We spent tonight coloring Easter eggs and making some food for tomorrow’s Easter dinner with my grandpa!

I hope that everyone who celebrates Easter has a wonderful holiday with their families!

God bless

Halfway through Spring Break

 

This Spring Break has mostly been about resting and quite literally taking a break from all the stress from school. So far my family has gone out to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie in the actual movie theater and I painted my room my favorite color!!! It’s been great, but I don’t want to go back to school!

Exploring Fort Wayne

Today was so gloomy but I made plans to go to the library downtown with my friend to work on our papers for English. I wasn’t looking forward to it because it was raining outside, but did anyway.

We stayed there for a few hours…

…but then went driving around looking at street art!! It was so fun and so amazing to see so much talent on buildings!!

(I do not own any of this beautiful art)

First we went to the side of Pint & Slice downtown.

After taking these pictures we walked around downtown a little bit.

Then we drove around for a little bit and accidentally found this art!

We then decided to go to Hyde Brothers, Booksellers because they had a cool mural AND I’ve always wanted to go inside the old used bookstore.

Here are some photos on the inside! I loved Scout, one of their bookstore cats! ❀

After Hyde Bros., we went to Wunderkammer Company which was beautiful!

I’m not sure who did some of these pieces, but there’s some signed art if you look on some of the close ups.

It was so fun being able to see this art with my best friend today!

Until next time,

Is spring finally here?

We’ve had such weird weather in Indiana lately. Yesterday it was in the mid 70’s, while a week ago we were experiencing a snow storm…

What?

That is exactly how our weather has been all winter. In fact, it was in the 60’s for a whole WEEK in February, then the temps dropped to the 20’s and 30’s again. Although this time I’m hoping the nice, warm weather is here to stay. With the spring equinox passed already, I’m hoping the cold weather subsides for now. I feel so much happier when the weather is warm.

For right now the weather forecast looks promising, with highs in the 50’s and 60’s for the next 9 days. I’ll hold onto the hope that it stays that way!
