My Chic Week: April 8-14

I've been a bad blogger this past week...I only had one post and honestly that one was pre-scheduled since I took the pictures over spring break. My life has been pretty crazy and stressful since returning back to school- AP exams are literally right around the corner, I've been low-key stressing about prom (but I finally figured things out, thank goodness), friend stuff going on, and the usual craziness of school. But that's junior year for ya! And I turned 17! Summary of my spiel: I'm so sorry for not being the best blogger in terms of actually getting posts up so I figured that it would be a good time to catch up on what has been going on recently so y'all are caught up for this Friday's My Chic Week (want to read more of my past weekly recaps? click here!).


Friday was a fairly busy day for me as I had quizzes in Pre Calc and APUSH, a test in Theology, and a meeting during lunch. Not to mention, it was a Mass day so it was shorter classes and I also had to dress up (which I love doing so no complaints about that here!). One of my favorite things about Friday is that I have time to do all of my homework for the weekend at a different time so I technically don't have to do homework if I don't feel like it! I nannied that afternoon, which was a ton of fun as I made cupcakes with the little boy I nanny!

Saturday morning, my mom and I woke up very early (5:15 AM to be exact) and headed to Elon University for their spring Explore Elon (an open house) event. I had previously toured Elon my freshman year and then this fall in November (which you can read about in this post), so this was my third time touring the school, which is kind of insane! However, I did learn more about Elon and their academics, especially their education program (I want to go into elementary education if you're a newer reader). I also meet a few other girls, two of which were coincidentally interested in being education majors as well, so that made very excited to head off to college in a few years!



After lunch, there was a few sessions that you could attend but my mom and I decided to head back home. After arriving at home, we relaxed for a bit and then went to Saturday night Mass. We picked up Chick-fil-a for dinner and then I just had a relaxing night at home, which was great especially after a busy week!

Since I successfully avoided all of my homework on Friday and Saturday, I spent all of Sunday playing catch up on that. I had a big project plus a bunch of other assignments so it definitely wasn't the most exciting day!

Monday through Wednesday were all fairly busy with meetings, tests, quizzes, and assignments. There is currently less than two weeks till AP exams (as many of y'all probably know) so I have had a bit more work and stress than usual since getting back from Spring Break. Not to mention, I was overall very stressed the week before and Monday through Wednesday, which was a bit overwhelming to say the least!

A few goodies that arrived in the mail this past week!

Thursday was my 17th birthday, which was definitely a bright spot during a rough week. My day at school was pretty normal and I nannied after school, which is always fun for me! I had Chick-fil-a for dinner and then a bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes for dessert! My mom was so sweet and surprised me with flowers, which I love having to brighten up my room!


Hope y'all are having a great week so far!

  3. Happy belated birthday! Sorry about those AP exams; I won't be taking any until next year, but the mere thought of them still stresses me out! Good luck!

  4. I am SO impressed that you're able to keep your blog up while being a full-time student. You should be PROUD, Girl! :) Don't worry about needing to step away once in a while. We all need to do that from time to time!! You're doing amazingly. :)

    xoxo!!
