For those of you who read this on a semi-regular basis, you’ll probably notice that I stink at updating it! It’s not that I forget about it, I just don’t feel like boring all of you with my mundane life.

However, this past week was anything but mundane! I took a somewhat spontaneous trip to Chicago. (I say “somewhat spontaneous” because I bought the train tickets a week in advance, but it was a spontaneous idea.) But anyway, I went to Chicago. The main purpose of the trip was to surprise my friend JW for his senior recital at Roosevelt. Along the way, however, I saw my friend Paige, stayed with my friend Erick, and met some cool new friends (Cory, Bobby, and Chris).

The original plan was to arrive Wednesday afternoon, have some tea, enjoy a recital, hang out, and then leave Thursday afternoon. As one would expect, those plans changed. As soon as I got there I was convinced to change my train ticket to return on Friday and go out on Thursday night to a swanky club. How could I say no? I was already being spontaneous and rebellious! So I stayed.

I’m so glad I did! I got an ADORABLE new outfit, and got to be in the VIP section of Y Bar in downtown Chicago. And guess who else was in the VIP section?

So glad I stayed. Once I got back, I caught up on sleep (much, much needed sleep) and on Saturday I saw one of my friends get married! She was beautiful, and I wish her the best! Then my lil gave her junior half recital. She was lovely. Such a great performer!

Now it’s Sunday. And I’ve been sitting in my bathrobe for the last two hours. And I’ve had a 5 day weekend. I need to get back in school mode.

I graduate in three weeks. 21 days. I’m very excited about this! But also terrified. Truly terrified.

Tonight is also my very last formal meeting as an active member of Alpha Xi Delta. I’m not sure how to feel about this, so I’m just going to ignore it.

Now I remember why I constantly kept myself so busy for the past seven semesters. When my days aren’t full of something, they feel 8 times longer! I have so much free time that I don’t know what to do with myself. Hopefully, once school picks up I won’t be feeling this way.

Exactly one week from today, I will be in Chicago with my friend Paige! I’m so excited to get out of Monmouth and see my Alpha Xi big sis! And I love Chicago. It is one of my most favorite cities because there’s always something to do! That will keep me going through the next week, and I’m sure I’ll find a way to fill my free time.

The only problem is…I keep getting rid of my responsibilities!
