First, about Christmas, it was an easy peasy day! We cooked and watched Christmas movies! Let it be known that I made a vegan raspberry/blackberry pie, crust and all from scratch! Yes, totally from scratch and it was perfection! Of course, we exchanged gifts on Christmas and it was too much fun. My favorite present that I got was a BIKE! It’s a big Tiffany Blue bicycle and I am obsessed with it! It is still currently at my dad’s house but I can’t wait to get it to my house and ride it to yoga! We had so much fun exchanging presents. I got my dad a drone and he loved it! I absolutely love when people love the gifts I get them. Speaking of gift-giving, I wrote about my “gratitude gift” in my last blog post and that was a huge success. It was the best money I ever spent! The person I chose for my “gratitude gift” this year is the girl who teaches me yoga! She is one of my favorite people in the world and has become a dear friend. She was so grateful for it and I am happy for that! She changed my life in so many ways by opening my eyes to daily gratitude. It wasn’t so much about the actual present as it was about letting her know how she changed my life by just being the wonderful person she is. So, so, so happy that I got to send out a little love into the world.
Anyway, the day I brought her the gift, she had friends visiting from another state and I got to meet them. They turned out to be such amazing souls as well! I really connected with them in the conversations that we had. I love people like that so much. It’s so hard to find people that you connect with in your heart. The next night, they invited me to come and have celebration drinks with them which I did. We had so much fun laughing and talking. It was such a fun night! The next morning we all went to yoga. My practice was a mess. It was the first time back in about two months. I had not gone in so long because I was stressed and trying to study for finals. In all actuality, I should have still gone to yoga so that I could find some peace and clarity while studying. I will try to continue to go even during finals this semester so that I may have an open heart and mind during the stressful time. We were going to get together again that night, which was New Year’s Eve, to light a fire but it was pouring rain so that was cancelled. I ended up watching Netflix with my pups and it was kind of perfect, four warm and snuggly dogs, twinkle lights above my bed, cozy flannel sheets, and a warm bath on a cold night! So good!
The last few days or so I did make a half attempt at cleaning but the laundry is still on the floor and it’s going to stay that way… for now anyway. Tonight, I started the process of registering for the MPRE. I am taking it in March and I am really nervous about it. I’ll be studying hard for it in the coming weeks before the school work is upon me. It’s like the LSAT all over again. :( I will have to start applying for internships. I did apply for a few but not nearly enough. I need to make sure I get a decent one. This coming summer will be my last summer in school. After that I’ll be a lawyer which scares me to death. I also got my school bag packed for tomorrow and I am about to go make lunch to take with me in the morning. Nothing like the last minute to get it all done. HA!
I got my car up and running with the help of my Dad. I am so thankful for him! We ended up bringing it somewhere else and it was much cheaper and everything is fine now. I will still try to get a new car during the summer because it’s getting older and I don’t want that hassle when I am trying to move away a year and half from now. Gotta start thinking about those things. It’s coming fast…
Lastly, I did get my grades back from the semester recently and I am so happy with them! These are the best grades of my life! So many A's and B's! Seriously, I have never done this good in my life and I am kind of shocked that I did that well this semester! I never thought I could ever do that well ever!
Ok, so that’s basically it! I’m so sad that my break is over. I’m going to pout about it in a little while! LOL. However, when the morning comes, I will bid all these wonderful times farewell with so much love and light and move on because the future is calling and I am so excited about it!
Thanks for reading along. I’ll post again soon about how my first days are going! Much love to you all!
Happy New Year!
