Pages in My Week 2/8-2/14

February 15, 2015

I am so sorry I did not do a weekly update last week. Last week, I did not take any photos at all due to my busy schedule. Now that my basketball season is over, these will be a weekly thing as it was intended to be.



If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I posted a bit more often than usual. I am really trying to be more active on all my social media. I have really enjoyed editing and playing around with different filters on my pictures. In the future, I will most likely be doing a post on how I like to edit my photos!
Sunday, I really did not do much besides kick back in my bed with my chucks on and newest Vogue magazine in hand. I, also, discovered the cutest cover of Boom Clap. Lennon & Masie are so incredibly talented. I remember discovering them a few years back when they just sang covers on YouTube. 


Monday's do not get as much respect as they should. I am totally guilty of taking Monday's for granted. While technically it is not the beginning of the week, for most of us it is the beginning of school or work. This Monday, I realized that not everyone is able to have a two or sometime three day weekend. While we all complain about so much work, there are others who have to do three times the labor for 2 more days of the week. We should start out our week with only positive thoughts. Your day won't be horrible if your mind is not focused on it being horrible.

Tuesday. Bun going up, on a Tuesday (get it?). It was one of those days when getting all dressed up was not an option. I put on my uniform, a pullover, and tied my hair up in a bun. If it's not obvious, I watch a lot of YouTube videos. I think I watch it more than actual television. Taylor Swift's 1989 album literally has been on repeat since it's release. Her song Wildest Dreams is one of my favorites. This cover comes to a close tie with the original song.




Wednesday, my day started out with the most wonderful sprinkled doughnuts from my homeroom teacher. I think homeroom has to be one of my favorite classes. Although sadly, it is only 10 minutes. This day, I finally was able to go home! No practice. No extra curricular activities. Nothing. Yes, I ran up stairs, jumped into my bed, and cherished being able to rest. Getting home at midnights on most school days really does a number on you. 
Thursday has always been one of my favorite days of the week. I don't even know why. I guess
 because the stress of the beginning has died down by then. I have totally become an Pinterest addict.  If you want to know what my future room and home look like. My Pinterest boards go into complete 
detail.
Friday was the semi-finals. Sadly, we lost by a few points, but that just gives us time to prepare for next season. After the game, a bunch of the team went out to Outback at 10 in the evening. The wait was a bit long but so worth it. I ordered the Shrimp Caesar Salad and let me say it was the bomb
Ordinarily, I order chef salads or just something simple, but I went out on a limb that night. This salad had my heart just from the presentation. I did not take a picture, because I dug into it as fast as I could. The shrimp was so good even though I had trouble eating it off the cabob. Even though Friday I had three tests and my stress level was about to explode, I finished it off in a positive way. Start off the week positive and end it out on a positive note. 
Saturday was Valentine's Day! I had so much fun spending it at my house with friends and family. Even though I did not have a Valentine, I had a great day. I, also, hosted a Valentine's Day Link-Up. Definitely check out all the wonderful ladies who participated in it. I learned so much on this Valentine's Day. This day should not be defined as the one day you love your significant more than all the other days of the year. You should love the same every day of the year. Whether it's your special someone, parents, family, or friends, you should not just show your love on this one day. I, also, learned that you should love yourself. When being single, you think a lot. You think of the 'ifs', the 'hows', the 'whens' but never the 'nows'. We need to think "Right now, I will______." Right now, I will think more positively. Right now, I will not pity myself. Right now, I will be an independent person. Right now, I will love myself. 
Love is all mental. In order to love, you need to be able to love yourself. All your flaws and kinks are what makes you you the best you.
 
Xoxo,
