Studying all summer for the CPA exam could make you stressed, upset, and frustrated. I have felt that way when I get overwhelmed thinking about all of it, but really, this summer has been pretty amazing. I have been spending time with both friends and with Jarrett and really just building a good balance between studying and still having a sense of fun and a summer! I feel so lucky to live in such a gorgeous place and to be starting a great job again soon and to just have all of the things I have right now. Here are some of the things that have been making this summer pretty darn amazing:
My super cute vanity table captured when I was getting ready one morning, complete with my obsession: plain greek yogurt and pineapple!
Drinks on a super fun night out with Mei :)
My really random chocolate milk craving satisfied the morning after our night out!
Funniest note page ever: I had a missed call on my phone from an unknown number that I was really curious about, as they had left a message. Mei replied back: "curiosity killed the cat!"
Huge mixing bowl salads with homemade dressing and turkey = amazeballs.
Studying? Not so amazeballs.
Killer workout? Definitely amazeballs. (Okay, done with that word now.)
Monday-Thursday = $5 movies for UM students, our new obsession!
Madagascar 3 was hilarious. Loved Snow White and the Huntsman and MIB 3, however, DID NOT LIKE Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Poor ending!
Moral of the story: Try not to let whatever is consuming your life right now consume you. Take time to enjoy your blessings and just to take it all in! (Also, I should take my own advice, so self: when you're stressed, read this post!)
