This past couple of weeks have been nothing short of hectic. They have also been wonderful, rainy, and sweaty. Sweaty as in “I’ve started my summer workouts and my hometown is a lot more humid than my college town so every time I step outside to run or do anything little droplets of sweat run down my arms and my nose and help me glisten like a vampire out of the Twilight series” sweaty.
I just came back from a run, can’t you tell?
So here are a few things I’ve been up to:
I am done with school for the summer! It’s such a wonderful feeling. I was able to conquer my finals and earn all A’s in my hardest semester yet. I still have one more semester to go (at least for my first degree…no way am I going to stop my learnin’ there) and I can’t wait to continue flexing my brain muscles in the attempt to become my smartest self.
As soon as my finals were over, I headed home to celebrate Mother’s Day–I had planned to dedicate a whole post to my mom because she deserves it so much, but time just got away from me. I was amid a flurry of flowers, last-minute gift-getting shopping trips, and an abundance of sweet hugs. This little piece of my post is dedicated to you, Momma. You do everything for me. And I mean everything. I love you so much. One day, you’ll have your own little piece of my blog dedicated entirely to you.
I celebrated my 22nd birthday yesterday! I was so excited to sing Taylor’s Swift’s classic anthem and eat cake and savor some vanilla bean ice cream. I got a few new books I’m so excited to tear through–Mom sensed that I needed some literature about what it is like being a newly-minted adult, a twenty-something who has no idea what’s going on but wants to desperately figure it out and excel in her new stage of life.
Momma just gets me.
Changes Coming Soon
In the next few weeks, I’ll be updating this blog, my little piece of the internet, and expanding my audience through the creation and upkeep of my favorite social media site: Instagram. Stay tuned, my friends! Kaila in Wonderland is coming to a tiny little iPhone screen near you (if you’re not already reading these posts through that nifty little device).
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m about to go fall down my own little rabbit hole: organizing that thing I like to call “my life.”
Have a great day, my friends!
