Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend! It’s hard to believe it’s already coming to a close. I’ve been busy the entire time and now that I’m actually sitting down, I wonder how it went by so quickly!
Anyway, I had a really pleasant week, and I’m ready to share with you all some of the highlights!
I took this photo in the school library on Tuesday. It was dead week last week (week before finals), and I decided to spend a few hours on the quiet flood and hammer some assignments out. I’m a weirdo, but I LOVE spending time on the quiet floor of the library. Absolute silence gives me peace and helps me relax, I know a few people who feel like they get anxious when there’s too much quiet, but I’ve always found it to be so pleasant.
I’m also not a very social person, I try and put myself out there now and then, but no one can talk or interact on this floor so that keeps me calm too. I finished a lot of homework that day, and then I came back and stayed for a few hours the next day. I was a very productive person for those two days!
This is a photo of my planner, and as you can see it is very decorated! My mother in law works at a little craft shop and she bought me all kinds of stamps and stickers for my planner throughout the year. I’m OBSESSED with them. As silly as it sounds, I feel like making my planner a little colorful and decorated makes the day seem a little more cheerful ♥ I’m a planner, I have to plan my day out, but I also like to make things pretty, so writing out my schedule is one of my favorite parts of the day.
My favorite part of this entire week was date night with my husband, which was on Wednesday. There is an old movie theater in town that plays classic movies, and they feature a different one each week. So this week they played Jaws. I can’t even begin to tell you how crazy I am about that movie, I . Love. It. I first saw it when I was six years old. I realize that is very young, but for whatever reason, I loved it.
So Kristofer took me to see it at the theater, and I had the absolute best time. As cheesy as this is, I got a little tearful during the movie. I had such a busy week, and getting to watch something that I love, that is part of my childhood, it gave me an overwhelming sense of comfort…despite the fact that it’s a movie about a killer shark LOL. Anyway, it was the best.
I’ve seen footage of people in the audience of a theater when it first came out, and all of them screaming at once when something scary happened, and I’d always thought “Man, that would be so fun to experience, to go back in time when all these classic movies came out, getting to experience it for the very first time”. When I was watching it, I felt like I was back in 1975 when Jaws had first come out, and I even got to witness everyone jump in fear when something scary happened – of course I didn’t, because I’ve seen it so many times that I knew it was coming haha.
This photo is out of order from the rest, but I spent last weekend with my friends – and former roommates up until I got married – and we went out shopping and just hung out together. They are two friends that I can be a goofball around, and I am so thankful they are part of my life ♥ When this was taken, they were getting ready to move and there were boxes everywhere. So naturally, I tried to fit into them hence this great photo.
I thought this week I’d also add a favorite music feature, and might continue it, we’ll see. But I love the show One Tree Hill, and I binged watched a few episodes this week. One of the best parts of the show is the music that plays in every episode. This show came out in the early 2000s, so whenever I watch an episode, it is such a musical throwback and I love it. There were a few songs that I heard in the show this week that were really fun to hear again.
The Mixed Tape – Jack’s Mannequin » I haven’t heard this one before until this week honestly, but it sounds like a lot of the music I listened to in my middle school years, you know, when life was so hard and no one understood me (eye rolls encouraged LOL).
Move Along – The All-American Rejects » This song was a huge favorite when I was twelve…well…okay it’s still a favorite. I will always love this song. I have listened to this one on repeat on some pretty rough days.
A Message – Coldplay » Sadly, and in my opinion, Coldplay doesn’t have this wonderful sound anymore. This song, and this album in general was so amazing. I especially loved this song when I was in middle school. This is one of the albums that defined ages 11-14 for me.
The season I was watching aired in 2005-2006, so a lot of the music I loved at that time were during my middle school years. Hearing all those songs was a fun throwback for me!
I am sure there will be more music from OTH that I obsess over, so don’t you worry 😉
Anyway, that’s my week in a nutshell. I had a good one!
Do you have any fun throwback songs you’ve heard recently that you love? Any fun date nights you went on? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you!
