Week of the Living Dead

Hello bloggy friends! It's been awhile since I posted but hopefully I can get back to it. "Dead week" turned into finals week for me so I basically had no life for the past week. I have one more day of finals (tomorrow) and then I'm officially on Christmas break. That's one thing I will miss after I graduate!

A little catching up on my week. Study. Study. Coffee. Study. Back to back tests. Coffee. Study. I fully enjoyed my weekend free of studying or really caring about anything. Friday night after I had recovered from sleep deprivation/flu-like symptoms, M and I took Gage out to central campus to go for a walk.We enjoyed the simpleness of walking around without a care in the world. We just bought Gage a retractable leash which I love now because when he takes off to chase his furry friends [bunnies] I don't get yanked along with him. He also donned his adorable Christmas sweater to show off his cuteness. There was ooo-ing and awww-ing by all. After our walk I came back and sort of had a glitter explosion. I made the cards I sent out yesterday for the Christmas card swap and I'm so happy I chose to instead of buying some. I cannot wait to see what I get in return. M wasn't happy with the glitter everywhere but I loved it! Once I was in full crafting mode I decided to craft a few other things.

Last night we went on a double date with one of my best friends. The plan was to hang out and play games for a bit, then go to the movies. We played a racing game on the playstation and a round of BS before heading out. Just before reading I took Gage outside to go to the bathroom and to my surprise it was snowing! I'm not talking blizzard style, just gentle giant snowflakes coming down. I was ecstatic! I've been waiting/wanting/begging for it to snow. Too bad it melted after a few hours. Still resulted in a mini snow fight after the movie.

Today was spent hanging out with M and Gage doing nothing in general. It's the best way to get my mind relaxed and ready for the last day of tests. I had originally planned on doing more baking but snuggling won out in the end. I'm so ready for a month of nothingness!

I have a few special posts in mind over the next week that I'm excited about to stay tuned!

RIP squeaker bear.

  2. Damn it. I am out of coffee. And you just rubbed it in my face that I don't have coffee. Ugh.

    And your post title is serious false advertisement. I thought you were gonna ramble about zombies and what not. Boo.


    1. Hehe we've accumulated so many containers of coffee I'm not sure I'll ever run out! I wish I was cool enough to talk about zombies, that would be way more exciting than finals!

  3. Good luck on your finals!! Coffee is essential... I remember drinking a pot a day during finals week when I was in college. I'm a new follower from the GFC Collective. Hope you had a wonderful Monday!!

    1. Thank you! I finished my last one Monday night so I'm ready to go home at any minute! I never drank coffee until about a month ago. I found grasshoppers and fell in love, now I'm drinking coffee practically black! Thanks for following along!


Tell me how you really feel! I love to hear from you so don't be afraid to give me an ear full, thanks for stopping by!
