My Week in Review: May 27 – June 2

Monday: Over the weekend I went with Alex to his parents’ house about two hours away from where we live. His parents were sweet enough to get me this 21 charm for my Pandora bracelet in honor of my impending birthday. They’ve given me all my charms so far and I’m really looking forward to them slowly filling up my bracelet over the years.

Tuesday: I had gone back home from Alex’s parents’ house on Monday night just to drive back the next day. Alex gave a speech at his old high school and he completely forgot about it until the day of. I decided to drive back to see him speak as well as to hang out with Natalie their foreign exchange student from the Ukraine. She went home this past Wednesday and I’m definitely going to miss her.

Wednesday: I’ve really been having a fantastic time creating new outfits and exploring my own closet. It’s easy for things to get lost or swept to the side, so it’s fun to go on an adventure and see what kind of out fit I can put together.

Thursday: Alex and I with two other friends entered a case study competition a few months ago. After a lot of work on Alex and my part to get the projects done and to make the videos, we ended up winning! Each one of us got our own iPad and they FINALLY came today!

Thursday: Needless to say I went right out and bought myself a wonderful iPad case that I completely love. Alex and I spent the evening playing with our iPads and making them perfect.OOTD___ (1)

Friday: I usually don’t work on Fridays, but this week I had to make up for not working Memorial Day. Silly me forgot that Friday is casual dress day. Oh well! I really enjoyed this outfit!

Adventure: Color Run 2013

On Saturday I woke up bright and early to take an hour or so drive south to Ypsilanti with a few friends. Once we got to Ypsilanti and found a parking spot (which was a nightmare), we met up with my sister and her boyfriend. Thus began our first Color Run experience.

The entire event was so fun and amazing and I loved spending time with my best friend Lauren and my sister. Everyone else in our group ran the 5K, but we just enjoyed ourselves walking it and getting completely covered in color! The only possible way that the Color Run could have been any better (besides being a tad bit warmer) was if Alex could have been there with us. He had signed up for the event, but last minute remembered a long-ago committed to wedding he had to photograph. Luckily there will sure to be other color runs in our future!

Greek Life: Taking a Step Back

I’ve been an active part of my sorority since I joined back in 2010. From being on committees to taking on a lot of different positions, I have learned the ins and outs of my organization. For years I’ve put my heart into TPA, but I’ve gotten to the point in my life and education that I’ve been forced to take a step back.

I’m graduating at the end of this year, so these last two semesters are going to be packed with final courses and internships. There just isn’t enough time to accomplish everything I need to academically and financially on top of all of the sorority obligations. I had to prioritize and do what is best for me in the long run. That just happens to mean fewer sorority events. In the end I know I’ll be much happier not trying to kill myself by doing everything. It’s just going to be weird not being a part of a lot of things.

365 Days of Photos: Day 20 (January 20, 2013)

20 - Jan 20

I took a big step away from being super active in my chapter today. It’s going to be weird to not be in the thick of things, but it’s time to start working full force towards the future.

365 Days of Photos: Day 12 (January 12, 2013)

12 - Jan 12

I hosted a Thirty-One party today. I’ve never hosted a party like this before and was incredibly happy with how it turned out.
