5 Things You Swore You Would Do This Summer

  1. Work Out
  2. Sleep
  3. Go On An Adventure
  4. Work and Save Money
  5.  Get Tan

….yet, you don’t actually do those things. Everyone swears they will work out now that they don’t have class and have less temptations to order pizza every night since mom is cooking. Sleep…something we college student put on a pedestal, sometimes higher than our grades (sorry mom), yet it’s summer and we end up watching endless amounts of Netflix or going out with people. Which brings me to my fourth point…working and saving…something we swear we will do so we can relax and focus on school {ordering pizza whenever} during the year. While we may work, we certainly aren’t saving because we definitely {don’t} need another romper. And now going back to point number three…going on an adventure. I know this is something that I always swear I will do because I have the time and I will have the money, but I end up working and not having money because I bought that extra romper or ordered pizza again. Yes, I know I made that choice and I only have minor regrets. Anyways, my fifth and final expectation of the summer, get tan. However, you spend most of your day indoors because when it’s so hot out you can fry an egg, you don’t want to fry out there either…or you work…or you are binge watching a Netflix series in the dark.

While we swear we will do a lot of things some times we don’t, but regardless we have three month off of school!

Enjoy It,

Morning Routine: Coffee and Lemon Lavender Scones

Hey There,

I hope all of you have had a good week! For me this week has been extremely crazy, stressful, and busy. I am now in my second semester of nursing school and I have quite a full course load as I have mentioned before. I had two tests this week and clinical so I was running on minimal amounts of sleep, but it paid off when I nearly aced both of them.

I have talked about how I am one for routine before and that I enjoy taking a break in the evening to do something for myself and that usually involves a short nap or a bit of exercise just to relax and refocus. Well, this semester getting up early and starting my day off with time to myself has been working out well.

I generally wake up at 5:15 or 5:30, roll out of bed and head to the gym once I put my contacts in. Once in the gym I generally put in 30-45 minutes of cardio/yoga and then hop in the shower. After I get ready for the day I wander up to the hill (campus) where I find my spot in the coffee shop’s corner. It’s usually 7:15 when I get up there so I have about an hour and forty-five minutes before my first class. I use this time to scroll through twitter, get ahead on an assignment or just scroll through Pinterest. I always get an iced coffee or hot tea, but rarely anything else. Well, I was feeling bold and got a lemon lavender scone and oh. my. gosh. it was absolutely fantastic!! They only had it for that day, but I hope they bring it back soon so I can get another one.

Moral of the story though, while routine can be a bad thing if you are not willing to ever break it, it can also be a good thing because when there is a lot of chaos and craziness going on in life a simple routine can be what keeps you from going absolutely insane.
