Quote It: Finals

My first finals are on Monday and it's starting to become very "real" that finals are here. I haven't accepted it and the panicking will start tomorrow, but I'll push through. I hate getting stuck with a fear of failure on my mind. Instead of freezing up I try to find quotes to motivate me! Here are a bunch of finals-inspired quotes to get us all through to summer! We're so close!

"I believed in studying just because I knew education was a privilege"
-Wynton Marsalis

Don't be afraid to FAIL. Be afraid not to TRY.

"Anxiety is caused by a lack of control, organization, preparation, and action"
-David Kekich

Tuesday Tidbits

1. Reading history in bed this morning
2. Spanish class outside
3. Beautiful weather which means it's Jack Rogers season
4. Can you spy all three cockapoos?
  • I stayed home from school today and found myself getting so much work done. I'm proud to say that I stayed home today, even though I wasn't sick. I accomplished 100% more work than I would have if I would have been at school today
  • I hate the SAT, the format, the breaks, everything. It ruined my weekend too and left me completely exhausted on Saturday. Thank goodness I liked the ACT!
  • I am one month away from the last day of school. One. Month. 
  • These last few weekends have been so jammed packed with school that I haven't been able to find time for myself. I will be getting a manicure and pedicure this weekend. I will! 
  • I am loving Pure Barre, I find that I love it more and more after I take a three day break. My fears of shaking like a twig after a break have been debunked!
  • The nice weather we have been having is incredible. I don't ever want this gorgeous weather to stop! I'm so excited for the rest of spring and then summer! See 2 & 4 above!
  • I'm dying for the scalloped shorts from Lilly Pulitzer but am curious if you think they will stay in style for long. Timeless or just a trend?
