Thinking Out Loud – Blink of an Eye

“Because I’m happy..”

I’m happy because today is Thursday and you know what Thursdays’ mean?


1. Is it just more or did this Thursday come in a blink of an eye? Seriously, it feels like just yesterday I was waking up bright and bushy eyed at 5 a.m. for school. Where is this year going? I mean it’s almost the middle of March! WHAT. Well, at least it means that the weekend is soon upon us. πŸ˜‰ Always got to think of the positive, right?

2. You guys, I don’t know if you can tell, but I am so flippin’ excited that Spring Break starts tomorrow afternoon! All of this studying for finals tomorrow is frying the heck out of my brain. This girl needs a week off from AP and honor classes. My oh my.. I just hope it gets somewhat easier in the last few weeks of school. Speaking of which.. I can’t believe the year is almost over. I was really thinking about it in class yesterday, and you know those thoughts that just surprise the bajesus out of you? Yeah.. pretty much sums up my reaction.

3. Speaking of Spring Break, I am pretty upset that on Saturday I get to be at school at 9 am for a 3 hour exam instead of sleeping in. I could have gone yesterday and today or tomorrow after school, but my teacher is giving a 10% bonus to our grades if we go Saturday.. Luckily there will be a big breakfast at 8 a.m. so I guess it won’t be so torturous bad.

4. Lately, I’ve been so happy that I am finally able to workout! You don’t even know how good I feel once the endorphin’s kick in and I start sweating like crazy. (Cute image, right?) I just feel so good afterwards. Seriously, it’s like the best feeling ever (besides when I know/see food coming πŸ˜‰ ). I am not going hardcore at the gym, but I am making use of my weights to do some workouts at home. Primarily Blogilates because I love her attitude and her workouts do challenge me.

5. I went out of my ‘comfort’ zone with food and ate not 1 but 3 of these bad boys. (Not all at once.) They brought back some childhood memories. Oh the joys of treating yourself and making progress.


6. The heat is coming upon Arizona. Already getting up in the 80s. Oh how joyous it will be at 120. Hopefully I move before the Summer or this girl will definitely turn into a lobster. o.o

7. So, I started reading The Color Purple and Ashley.. you were right. I was tearing up like crazy. I don’t think I could handle seeing the movie. It is an amazing read though. I highly recommend it!


8. My hunger is non-stop. I can eat a good ol’ meal yet my stomach feel empty about 20 minutes later. What is this? A faster metabolism? Let’s hope so!

9. Please wish me luck with my exams.. I have studying like crazy. I don’t think this much lack of sleep is good for the body. I’ve maybe gotten about 20 hours this week so far? How am I possibly functioning? Oh right, coffee and endorphins.

10. I love Kitty and Red on That 70s Show. Kitty’s vibrant personality never fails to make me smile along with Red’s “I’m gonna kick you a**” answers. Oh how I love binge watching this show. πŸ˜€

I hope you have an amazing day. ❀

  1. Good luck on your exams, girl! You’re going to kick some serious butt πŸ™‚ And that moment when you finish your last one and all the weight is lifted off your shoulders? Best.feeling.EVER. As for the increased hunger, I always found that my appetite was off the charts when I was studying for exams or writing papers — our brains need lots of fuel too when they’re being worked that hard!

  2. Good luck on exams! A 10% bonus is HUGE and I’d go on Saturday, too! I used to always give myself snacking during study time and I think it’s (in part) procrastination and also the increased calorie burn from staying focused for so long.

  3. Ohhh how I long for 80+ degree weather. It was in the teens last night and snowed here in KY (despite the fact that it was 70 and sunny the day before… go figure!)
    And yes, what would we do without study snacks?? So essential. Best of luck on the exams!

  4. Good luck hun!! It sucks that you have to go in on Saturday, but I’m glad that your teacher is making it worth your while! I wish mine had done that haha, but they definitely did not! Mm and my fav workout is running πŸ˜‰

  5. Oh my, an exam on a Saturday? Ugh. Good luck on them girl!! I hear ya on being so ready for Spring Break… it’s next week for me too. πŸ™‚ Enjoy it!

  6. I hope your exams go well and that you’re able to relax over spring break!! I’m dying for mine to come, so I’ll have to live vicariously through you for the next week or so haha ;). Those cookies look delicious! Glad you’re able to enjoy them- you deserve it!

  7. Good luck on your exams!! 3 hr test on Saturday is making me tired just thinking of it!
    Glad you are back to working out – working out for me so helps declutter my mind!
    When I was working on my Masters, I was ALWAYS hungry too – studying needs loads of fuel! My fav treat during that time was a flourless peanut butter chocolate cookie (peanut butter and chocolate) are staples for me πŸ™‚

  8. Best of luck on your exam, girl!! Saturday morning ones are definitely a struggle, but at least you’ll get those extra points πŸ™‚
    I β™₯ Blogilates for some challenging, yet low-impact workouts. And her motivation is just unmatched!
    Spring break is in four weeks for me! I don’t know if I can make it……..

  9. Have a great Spring Break and good luck on your exams!!! I deal with the stress by getting a lot of rest and having quiet study time πŸ™‚
