Taking a Break

Goa Beach Chairs by miqspix

To be honest, I started this blog for a class assignment, and  I have learned in my class that I really enjoy blogging. This blog became, for me, more than a “duty” or a “grade”.  It was a breather from work, from stress, and it really did hone my vision to focus on “the little things.” Words cannot explain how rough and stressful this semester has been (see this post below to get just an idea of what I’ve been up to,) and this blog actually became “My Bit of Happiness.” I loved posting, getting feedback on posts (still do *hint hint*), and enjoyed spending time finding other interesting blogs to read, too.

However, lately, I’ve been forcing myself to find something to write about, and updating my blog has become more of an item on my to-do list than something that I’ve been enjoying.

Natalia at A Side of Simple put it best when she said “And it’s times like that when you need to take a little breather.” I completely agree, Natalia.

So, for now, I am going to focus on surviving the rest of my semester, and then on enjoying my senior week festivities and celebrating becoming a college graduate. I’m not leaving, I promise. In fact,  post-graduation I plan on not only keeping this blog up,but  expanding it, and maybe even re-designing and refurbishing it. My future is unknown…I’m leaving my college in Newport, RI and I’m not quite sure where I’m living or what I’ll be doing, but I do know my life is going to take a different direction, and it’s time to sit back and enjoy the ride for a bit.  It may be only a week, it may be a few months, but keep on checking back, because I’ll return. Be excited :)

Getting Work Done

"Post it Time!" by 3oheme

oh, where to start?  I’ve been absent from this blog for the past week because:

  • I presented my thesis presentation this past Saturday. Essentially, a 12-minute speech/power point talking about my paper, and then answering questions. Despite the fact that I was sick and nervous, I managing to do well on the presentation and the grade. :)
  • I wrote an eight page paper on Othello for a class.
  • I wrote two three page papers for my French Film course.
  • I just emailed my professor my 25-page thesis paper.  PHEW.
  • And of course, I worked, interned, acted as president of two clubs, did various readings for my other classes, cleaned my house, and this morning I headed home for Easter break.

Sooo, I’ve been quite the busy bee.  and I have one (short) paper to finish up tomorrow, but after that I am looking forward to a relaxing Easter weekend and a  less stressful week next week, now that the bulk of my papers (and thesis) are finished.

But all I can say is, I have this INCREDIBLE feeling of RELIEF and ACCOMPLISHMENT after all that work!!
