dancing through life

Remember this post about how I didn't understand how college students manage their grades, jobs, boyfriends, etc.?  Well the other day I just realized that this year I gained all those things that I never thought I could... 
Job?   Check
Boyfriend?    Check
Grades? uhhh.. they're better :)

now I'm wondering how people go to college while they're married... oh and... let's just throw a kid or two into the equation too. I keep seeing students pushing strollers around campus and I ache for them. 


after this stressful week, I decided that taking a dance class tonight was going to be the only thing to get me through. Something familiar. normal. natural. 
...and I rationalized a lot! "if i go to the class then I'll release endorphins.. which will keep me awake while I'm studying!"

cheers college. cheers.

amazing week, terrible week, amazing week

it's funny how one week to the next can be completely different! 

-2 weeks ago was amazing.. everything fell into place. I know that the reason it went so well is because I was continually feeding myself spiritually (and literally... if you know me well then you know that is vital to my happiness!). 

-Last week was terrible (okay I am over-exaggerating! It really wasn't that bad but still...). I had statistics and church history midterms that stressed me out, came down with pneumonia and couldn't study because of it, and frantically threw one of the LEGIT 6's bridal showers with Madi (our other 3 friends are all paralyzed because of a car accident, mono, scooter accident, etc.).

-This week has been amazing! Hardly any homework, awesome jazz classes that let me dance again, placed 5th dancing the foxtrot for a ballroom competition, and going to VEGAS tomorrow for the BYU game! Definitely hitting IN N OUT first, then H&M. 

can't wait!
