Feb. 3, 2015—Upon the realization today that Lent is just around the corner, I figured that now would be the perfect time to pull out the half-written New Year's resolutions I started back in January. Lent is usually a time when I give up a bad habit or tack on a good habit to my routine to dig deeper into my faith, and many of my resolutions deal with kicking bad habits or challenging myself to step outside of my comfort zone. Half of them are silly, but as a silly person I feel like that's fair. There's no better time than right now to make this semester the most productive, most fun semester to date.
Dec. 12, 2014—Now don't go yelling at me just yet. Hear me out. I dislike taking finals as much as the next yahoo, but I can't get enough of finals week itself. Imagine a time when all of your friends are close by, study breaks are many and encouraged, and the parade of coffee, desserts, and junk food is endless. Welcome to finals week.
