Hi guys! I can't believe how cold it's gotten since I took these pictures over the weekend. It literally went from being a nice warm day, to a freezing rainy cold one yesterday. I guess it's official, I need a jacket everywhere I go now. Not sure how I feel about this. I hope you guys had a good weekend, mine was really good, a little tiring but good overall.
This week I have been trying to figure out all of my internship details, and making sure I hand in all the paperwork that's necessary on time. It's a really serious process, especially when you intern for credit, so I have a lot of work to do. I also started having tests and other papers due, which is so strange when you've been out of school for three years. I definitely don't feel like I have it all in any kind of groove, and I find myself procrastinating out of pure exhaustion. I do have some great news though....I AM DOING GOOD IN MERCHANDISING MATH CLASS. After studying and practicing my problems, I actually get it. You have no idea how happy this makes me. I feel like I climbed Mt. Everest.

Despite the craziness that always is my life, I am really enjoying the weather, and everything about this time of year. I don't know if you heard but fall is for lovers.

What is keeping me sane? Spending those few moments taking a deep breath and realizing that it will all get done. Going on breakfast dates and laughing till my stomach hurts. Sleeping in and being comfy. Drinking pumpkin spiced lattes and taking long walks. Spending my train rides listening to the best music and clearing my head. Getting dressed up and spending time with my friends.
