Life Updates

Hey y'all and Happy Thursday! I decided it would be fun to switch things up and just catch up with y'all in today's post. I feel like my life has been a bit all over the place lately so I figured it would be the perfect time to share that with y'all!


New NHS Leadership
When I first scheduled this post, the NHS Induction was supposed be last night but it was pushed back a week so I figured I would go ahead and tell y'all anyways! I recently took on the treasurer role in my school's chapter of the National Honor Society and I am so excited about it!

Lent
This year for Lent, I decided to give up sweets and then bread! I give up sweets every year and I decided bread would be a good challenge! I did change my bread promise to no waffles at breakfast and then no sandwiches at lunch because no bread at all was a bit confusing and honestly, this is still as much as a sacrifice! Let me know what you're giving up/doing for Lent in the comments!

SAT + ACT
I take both my first SAT and my first ACT in March, which is both exciting and nerve-racking! Wish me luck!

A Closing of one Door
So if y'all are long-time blog readers, you may remember me briefly talking about my high school soccer team last spring. Well it's soccer season again and I decided that I will not be playing. I have played soccer since I was 6 years old and honestly, I didn't really love it anymore! In addition to scheduling conflicts (it would be hard for me to play and keep up with the religious class I teach and my babysitting job not to mention just regular schoolwork), I decided that is best for me to not play this season!

Prom Dress
On a bit of a lighter note, I bought my Prom dress last weekend! I don't have a date yet but I do have a very gorgeous dress that I will be sharing in tomorrow's post!

Summer Plans
I am so excited about summer this year as I have some super exciting plans! I will be nannying for one of the families I babysit for and I cannot wait! Also, my family and I will be heading to Hawaii in July! 

More College Touring!
So on Monday I was supposed to tour Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, NC but they experienced some winter weather (Charlotte on the other hand didn't, haha!) so my mom and I decided to cancel our trip. Besides that, I have a lot of colleges that I want to see before applications begin in August (eek!) and I can't wait to bring y'all along with me through recapping my trips during My Chic Week posts (which you can catch up on here).

Let me know some of your exciting life updates in the comments!

  2. Sounds like your keeping busy! Not playing soccer is a bummer, but focusing on school is more important. Good luck on your ACT and SAT!
