Hello, long weekend! I've managed to pick up a nasty cold, but I'm happy to get a four day break from work!

Despite being exhausted from work (my students are adorable, but keeping up with them wipes you out!) this ended up being a pleasant week of firsts! On Wednesday I bought my first new car (and sadly had to say goodbye to my old/first car) and I also got my first paid writing piece posted on Lookbook's blog. I also got my first contest prize in the mail (a rose gold ring from Lulu Frost)!

Now to beat this cold...

This year just keeps flying.  Truth be told, I've been really stressed out and and overwhelmed in just about every aspect of my life, so I haven't felt inspired to document much of it. I'm trying to focus on the positive though.

Since we last talked...

*I listened to the audiobook (and watched the film) of Jane Austen's Persuasion, which I absolutely loved.
*Watched lots of movies, as usual.
*Got some early birthday presents! Lots of entertaining books and pretty things. Guess I need to throw another party to get out of this funk!
*Saw "Book of Mormon" which was AMAZING. I can't stop listening to the music, it was hilarious!
*Won a ring from Lulu Frost (pics when it arrives!) 
*Got an opportunity to write for Lookbook's blog. I'm very much NOT a fashion writer, and who knows if they'll even use what I submitted, but it was a fun post to write. If they don't use it, I'll post it in my film blog.

Here's to making this weekend count!
