I went home this weekend to be with my family. I could go on and on about how sad I feel, how not only have I lost my grandpa and high school counselor this year, but now these other two people. But I'm not going to do that. When I wrote a diary in high school, I promised myself that I would always remain positive in all my entries, and the same is going to go for this blog. Being positive is key, I feel, for your mental well being.
So. Onto today's post! SPRING!
1. Iced. Coffee. Drinks.
I'm going to die one of these days from my coffee addiction. It's gonna happen...all the caffeine is going to give me a heart attack or something. I love hot coffee, but iced coffee? EVEN BETTER. I don't want to look like the Campus Crazy, walking around Loyola with an iced coffee drink in the middle of winter when it's -2 degrees. So finally, the time of year has come where it's actually acceptable to drink iced coffee without looking like a lunatic.
2. Floral Dresses
From Forever 21, H&M and Lilly Pulitzer respectively. Aren't they cute? 'Nuff said.
3. Shamrock Shakes
I got to volunteering an hour early on Wednesday. They have a McDonalds in the hospital I volunteer at, which I don't understand at all. Let's put the restaurant partly responsible for child obesity in the children's hospital. Great idea. Anyway, I can't complain much because I grabbed a Shamrock Shake and experienced an hour of bliss. I tell myself that they're healthy because they're minty, an argument that doesn't make any sense at all. But it helps.
4. Easter Eggs
I love decorating (and searching for) easter eggs. I'm not too old for them yet! And I've seen so many cool ideas on Pinterest for non tradition easter egg decorating. These glitter easter eggs are my favorite though, and I want to try them this year.
5. TV Show Finales
Everyone knows that crazy stuff happens during TV show finales. I mean, the Lost finales? Grey's Anatomy finales? I don't want to spoil anyone, and I don't know a better way to describe it: shit goes down.
I haven't been watching as much TV as I used to, and two of my favorite TV shows have already had their AMAZING spring finales. In Pretty Little Liars, they announced who "A" was (no, I'm not going to tell you). I don't know how they're going to keep the show going now that the secret is out, but hopefully they'll find a way.
In The Walking Dead, I feel like everyone died in the last few episodes or so. Almost all of my favorite characters were killed off! Once again, don't want to spoil anything, but the show left off on a hang that will make me tune in next fall.
What are your favorite things about spring? And is my attempt at trying be positive through all of this working?
