What a Week

You know those weeks where even coffee doesn't cut it? Where a Pinterest pinning spree doesn't make you feel better? Where a happy text from a friend doesn't make you forget your worries? Well, that was my week. It's really been an entire string of unfortunate events. So, I thought I would share my not-so-great moments, along with the good ones that somehow managed to squeeze their way in-between all the chaos. (Such as finding this perfectly yellow leaf below!)

Monday//Every Monday, I have wind ensemble rehearsal, which means I have to leave at 6:20PM and I don't get back until around 9:45. This really takes a toll on my homework situation, so I stayed up until 3AM doing homework. Not fun.

Tuesday//I was so tired. All day. Then that night, I had a practice round for a competition we're doing in my AP Government class where part of it is answering questions about something on the spot, which I'm not very good at. I was already nervous because of how much caffeine I drank (and caffeine gives me anxiety), and I ended up totally blanking.

Wednesday//I dropped my phone in the toilet. Yeah. (Don't worry though, it still works.) It gave me so much unneeded extra stress that I cried while sitting on the kitchen floor flipping through an L.L. Bean catalog that my mother was trying to console me with. (She knows me too well.)

Thursday//Long story short, I broke my favorite necklace. And got assigned a huge paper that's due tomorrow. Woo.

And now it's Friday. (Thank goodness.)

So, to drown out the negativity a little, here are the good things that happened this week:

1. I booked plane tickets to visit my friend at the University of Virginia. (!!!)
2. The weather became delightfully cold.
3. My grade went up in AP Government.
4. The really important set of pictures for Yearbook that I've been working on this week has gone surprisingly well.
5. I got to see my old youth group leader for the first time in a year!
6. I got a Peppermint Mocha Latte at Starbucks. (It's the best.)

Moral of the story: there can be good in-between the bad.



  1. I know your week was not the best, but you are right there is always a silver lining! Just remember: you are amazing and I love you!!!!
