Happy Friday, everyone!
I hope you all had a good week! To be honest, mine was a little bit crazy, since I had a lot going on with classes, work, and other commitments, but aside from that, I’m doing alright! I hope you all are staying afloat as well.
This week, I shared 10 Time Management Tips that I use in my day to day life. To be honest, it can be pretty tricky to balance blogging, school, work, and my (albeit limited) social life, so I’ve learned pretty quickly how to make the best use of my time. If that’s something you have a hard time with as well, be sure to give my post a read!

In school… things have been pretty busy. I have some papers and exams coming up next week, plus a lab report due on Monday, so there’s a lot happening right now. I’m staying afloat though – and it helps to know that there are only about four weeks of classes left!
Writing… my Camp NaNoWriMo project! For those who don’t know, Camp NaNo is a more informal version of the regular NaNoWriMo that takes place in April and July every year. Writers can set their own goals, and there’s more flexibility with projects. This month, I’m rewriting Summertime, a novella I wrote in high school, and I set my goal at 25,000 words. At this rate, I’m pretty ahead of the game, so it might end up longer, but we’ll see how it goes!
Reading… Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I started it earlier this week since the movie is going to be showing on campus this weekend, and I wanted to try to read the book first. I have less than a hundred pages left, so I’m sure I’ll be able to finish it by tonight. I’m loving it so far!
Feeling… Pretty tired lately, but not too bad. With all of my running around between classes, work, and other events on campus, I’m pretty beat by the time I get back to my room at night. I’m hoping I’ll have a bit of a lighter schedule next week so I can get some rest in, but we’ll see.
Looking forward to… seeing Wonder tonight, going to a banquet on Saturday, and getting to spend a restful weekend on campus.
Thankful for… reading, getting my hair cut, getting to go to my church’s Easter service, hanging out with friends at poetry readings, and the campus gym.
