5 of 12, done!


The month of May was filled with such an over-abundance of activities that I literally do not know where the last 31 days went. It actually took until the last week of May for me to have a second to myself to breathe and re-evaluate all that took place prior to that moment. Here is a rundown of all that I experienced within this 5th month of 2017:

  • My brother’s 18th birthday / party
  • The dreaded finals week
  • The end of the spring semester (and getting a 4.0!!)
  • Mother’s Day
  • My brother’s last day of high school
  • My brother’s prom
  • My brother’s girlfriend’s prom
  • My brother’s senior mass
  • My brother’s final Varsity Singers concert
  • My brother’s high school graduation
  • Dancing in a 40th anniversary dance recital
  • My brother’s girlfriend’s graduation
  • My brother’s college orientation
  • My brother’s graduation party
  • Two weddings over Memorial Day weekend in Toronto
  • The 1975 concert
  • Work, work, work, work, work *in true Rihanna fashion*

To say I am, for the most part, exponentially exhausted is an understatement. My boyfriend keeps joking that June will be the month of making no plans – that he is just going to go with the flow and do whatever he wants. I’m starting to think that maybe this “joke” is a good idea to take part in, because I definitely could use a little break.

My short-term goal for the month of June is to start drafting blog posts every evening after work and posting them on my lunch break the following day to get into more of a routine. I’ve fallen off the track of keeping up to my New Year’s Resolution, and I am making it my mission to fulfill it!

How did your month of May go?! Here’s looking forward to June! xoxo.

4 out of 12, done! [Three days later].


April came and went in the blink of an eye. All of a sudden I flipped the page in my planner and it was May 1st, and I was a week out from the end of the semester. April was a month filled with an overabundance of ups and downs, and I could not be happier that it is over and I am now onto this clean slate that is the month of May.

In regards to my personal life, a glimpse of some the things that happened in April are:

  • A celebration of World Autism Day alongside my ever-so-perfect students.
  • Saying goodbye to my very first car and treating myself to a brand new one.
  • Participating in a 4 mile walk/fundraiser at my job to raise awareness for Autism, as well as help support the school I am blessed to work at each morning.
  • A relaxing spring break from both school and work.
  • Celebrating my grandmother’s birthday.
  • Attending my brother’s final Varsity Singers concert.
  • Watching my brother commit to the University of Akron.
  • Endless amounts of studying, projects, and assignments pushing me toward finals week.
  • A 20-day search for a lost friend that ended in a way in which I cannot explain.

May so far has started off on a low note, other than celebrating my brother’s 18th birthday, as we are still continuing to live through the tragic loss of a lifelong friend with many unanswered questions. My personal life caught up to me, so the blog this month severely suffered, especially the last few days with all that has been going on. But, there are plenty of exciting things on the calendar during this month ahead of me. Here’s to a new chapter. xoxo.
