Oh hello my friends! I’m kind of disappointed in myself because I missed two days of Blogmas this week… But, I’m doing sooo much better than I did the past two years so I’m still gonna call this a success and finish out strong!
ONE week until Christmas!! Can you believe it? I feel like I haven’t been able to really enjoy the season this year which makes me so sad. I still have a bunch of movies to watch and things to do. So this upcoming week might be jam packed with holiday cheer and I’m totally okay with that!
Lets recap my last week of school for the semester, shall we?
SUNDAY // December 11, 2016
I was at home for most of the day on Sunday and to be honest I cannot remember what I did for the life of me. I know I went and visited Nonna for a little bit but I cannot remember what else I did! Finals brain does this to you!
MONDAY // December 12, 2016
Ahhh yes, a library day. And my last day of M/W classes! I woke up and went to the library with sorority sisters. AKA the usual during finals week. I sat in the library all night writing a 12 page paper on Christmas stockings. It was a fun time.
TUESDAY // December 13, 2016
Tuesday I had a group presentation and it was my last day of T/TH classes and the last day of classes in general! So I woke up, got ready, went and presented to my class and then went home and took a nap. After I woke up I went to do some Christmas shopping with my friend Gina and we got chipotle because it’s the best. After that I went to my last class of the semester. Then I went home and relaxed a little before doing a little bit more work on a paper.
WEDNESDAY // December 14, 2016
Wednesday was reading day, aka a day off before finals to study. I was in the library with some sisters working on homework. I was feeling homesick and wanted to go home already so I packed up my stuff and went home that night. It was so nice to come home and eat a home-cooked meal. After dinner I went in my room and finished my last paper while watching The Santa Clause.
THURSDAY // December 15, 2016
Thursday was another day off because I didn’t have a final. I went to a doctors appointment with Nonna. I don’t want to go into too much detail but sadly, my grandmother was just diagnosed with stage two lymphoma and starts chemo three days after Christmas. We just found out last week and it has been an awful time for me trying to figure out what is going on. I’m extremely close to my grandmother, she’s my best friend, so seeing her go through this is going to be a nightmare for all of us. But, it’s treatable and did not spread to the rest of her body (it’s in her nose and one gland in her neck). She is the strongest woman I know and I know she will get through this. But, it’s been a major cause of anxiety, anger and sadness in me lately and I haven’t been myself because of it. I’m just grateful I get to spend so much time with her. After her appointment, we dropped my Nonna off at my aunts and then grabbed some breakfast with my mom. I came home and studied for my final on Friday. I went to bed that night and fell asleep studying. Oh and I got my nails done that night and watched The Big Bang Theory!
FRIDAY // December 16, 2016
I woke up and went back to school to take my one and only final exam. It was about -200 degrees outside in Boston so I was freezing on my walk back to my apartment after. I got to my apartment and took a nap, obviously. What else would you expect me to do? I woke up and got ready for my friend Alex’s Christmas party that night. She is literally Mrs. Claus and goes all out to make us all happy. Honestly, she’s such an amazing friend. And after a long and sad week I was so happy to see some of my friends to take my mind off of things!
SATURDAY // December 17, 2016
I woke up at home and went to hang out with Nonna for a little bit. It was snowing and I was so excited to see it sticking! I love snow! That day my family and I went and got chinese food and then my mom and I had a mother/daughter date to see our friends perform in an annual Christmas show! It was a great night that helped us take our mind off of things and we had fun singing and dancing along to Christmas music.
That is it for this week! See you tomorrow!!
