Staying Positive

This Monday morning didn't get off to the best start.

I woke up in my clothes and makeup, as usual. On top of the covers. Not ideal for a good night's sleep.

Got ready through all the mess that is my room.  I've been meaning to clean it for MONTHS. It's horrible. But I just can't find time to do it!!!!!!! UGH. It realllllly frustrates me.

Also, still looking for my prized gold watch - my new favorite accessory.  Can't find it anywhere.  I remember last taking it off at dance rehearsal, but I was sure I put it in my bag... NOT GOOD. I'll never find it in all the mess! I've been mad at myself all weekend about that.

The weather is COLD and RAINY. Boo.

And I don't have my umbrella.

I don't get to go home til like 10 tonight. After teaching today, I have a three hour class at HPU.

My clothes don't match.

So needless to say, I had a bad attitude coming in to teach today.


I had a fantastic weekend (as usual).

The students are watching A Knight's Tale in all three periods, so I have time to catch up on grading, work, and (blogging) haha.

I'm starting to like this rainy day.

Lunch is in ten minutes and I have Chinese rice.

I'm probably taking myself to Krispy Kreme after I leave here.

My three hour class tonight isn't so bad. I like the teacher a lot. And Kacie sits with me.

AXO is having a cookie party after I get out of my class tonight.

I'm going to the first playoff basketball game after that.

So I'm finding little things to be HAPPY about and get me through the day!
(even though nothing I'm wearing matches. yikes.)

Highlights From This Weekend

Saw my HPU theatre department's production of The Glasses, and it was awesome!

Hung out with friends at the arcade on campus.

Got started with my executive board (AXO) plans and duties.  Hit it off with my advisor. I love her! (And I LOVE my position as VP Ritual and Fraternity Appreciation. It's perfect for me.)

Went to my cousin's wedding shower.  Had a great time with my family and family friends.

CRAFTED with some BFFs! Made another Lilly bathroom set to sell!

Had our first AXO meeting with the new executive board.  So I got to help lead the meeting!

Lunch with some sisters.

Got a cool panhellenic shirt for $5. And a cupcake.

Helped take down the stage from The Glasses with my theatre buddies.  I've missed them :/

Did homework (sort of), had pizza, and watched the Oscar pre-show with some sisters.

Watched the Oscars and started graduate school applications with Alex.

It was a fun weekend :)

^ Just some Monday motivation!! ^



  1. I've been in a bit of a funk today too, so I feel you on that. I like that you chose to list out all the positives-I think I'm going to do that to get me into a good groove. My kiddos are watching a movie today too (The Outsiders) HOORAY for catch up days:-)
