Spring Break Recap


Just about two weeks ago I posted my ideal spring break to-do's list. It turns out that even without having school to do, my week was still immensely busy. Would you like a recap of what I accomplished? Of course you would.


>> Read at least five books I only read one book. But at least it was an absolutely splendid one! This item is definitely going on my summer bucket list, but perhaps as 20 books (at least) rather than just five.
>> Update Blog bio (if you go to my About page, you'll see it needs updating!) Still working on this, I promise!
>> Read/study Bio (BIG test coming up right after Spring Break) I studied hard, only to find out that class was cancelled last night due to snow! I am a HAPPY soul. And none of this icky studying going on my summer bucket list.
>> Read the looong list of articles I've made (I've found articles over the past weeks, but haven't had much to any time to read them. So I saved them all on a Pinterest board) Instead of reading the growing list of articles I already have, I've simply added a few more to it. Oh well. Summer bucket list I think?
>> Get into a more consistent workout routine DID THIS! And am feeling jolly for it. Interested in my workout/eating adventures? Email me.
>> Go to sleep before 10:30 (except on the weekend) Totally didn’t happen. Ha. I tried, in vain I tried.
>> Write long letters to dear friends I got to write at least one letter to a dear friend. I still have many more to compose, however.
>> Sleep, sleep, and sleep I really didn’t do this either…up early and going to bed inexcusably late (2am+). But all in all, I wasn’t totally deprived of my sleep either.
>> Get together with friends/family (I already have three to four different get-togethers planned for this week) Did this in succession, and it was a ruddy blast! I got to spend a consistent amount of time with my more distant-living family, as well as see dear friends I hadn’t seen in ages. Yes, it was a good week for the very reason that I got to spend time in splendid communion with dear hearts.
>> Experiment with some new recipes I did actually get to do this some! Although it wasn’t as exciting as I’d hoped it would be. My ‘experiments’ mainly consisted of trying new ways to cook vegetables (Brussels, asparagus, cauliflower) and create various forms of salads. This is another item that shall find itself on my summer bucket list, and will consist more of baking and not just cooking experiments.
>> Do Senior shoot with Jewel Peach Photography I did finally get to do a fantastic (belated) senior shoot with the amazing Jewel from :: Jewel Peach Photography. It was steampunk inspired (if you aren't sure what steampunk is, check out this Steampunk Inspired board), and quite fun! The photo above is from that shoot (Stay tuned for more photos from the shoot!). 

Did you get a spring break? If so, what did you do? If you're one of the lucky ones out of school (even as much as I love learning), what does an ideal "spring break" week look like to you?

Spring Break TO-DOs




Spring break, for me anyways, is this week! And guess what that means for this studious girl over here? FREEDOM! Well, not quite. But I will have this whole week without school (still have work though) to do a bunch of things I've been wanting to do for a good while. 

So I've decided to share with you all my spring break to-do list. If you will, it's a mini Summer bucket list. Should I not be able to finish some of these items, you'll definitely be seeing them on my Summer Bucket List (which I'll be posting on the blog in a week or two).
