Quick Recap of Life

That whole "blogging more regularly" thing was short-lived. I had no idea how limited my free time would be this semester apparently. 

But since I've last blogged -- I've enjoyed quite a few snow/ice days, watched the Winter Olympics like it was my job, wined and dined at a few cool places in Atlanta, Netflixed it up with Dexter, and of course -- studied pharmacy.

The girls from my freshmen hall all got together to have an Opening Ceremonies party for the Olympics - it was so fun to catch up with everyone again. We even had our own little Russian (picture - middle with the hat on). We got really into the Winter Olympics our freshmen year of college, so of course we had to go all out for the Opening Ceremonies. :)



Then I went through the Rush Process in Pharmacy School, which was so laidback.. I love it. I'm currently a KE pledge and I'm loving getting to know all of these sweet girls.

Masquerade Rush Party 

And we enjoyed a fun night in Athens with our crazy crew of friends..


Basically, that's all I've been up to. I lead SUCH an exciting life... haha #sarcasm

BUT, today I'm going to the Roswell Beer Festival with one of BFFs from school, so I can't wait to blog about that. (goal: to ACTUALLY blog about it.)

Happy Weekend Friends!

1.15.14

I like to think I'm not the only one who has fallen off the blogging bandwagon lately, because I hate that I never find time to post anymore. Blogging used to be my outlet. I looked forward to sitting down and writing my posts, reading other people's blogposts, and I spent a ridiculous amount of time brainstorming new ideas for posts.

I feel like too often my excuse is "I'm so busy" or "I don't have time." That isn't exactly a lie, I really am busy with school and work, and life itself. But, when it comes down to it, I could make the time to sit down and post.. it's just it's the last thing I want to do with my spare time these days. And that makes me sad.

So I'm back.. in an effort to fall in love with blogging again, and hopefully find myself wanting to make time for it again. I want to be able to have these days documented in posts for my little future self.. because there's nothing I love more than looking back on old blog posts and seeing how much I have changed.

December was a busy month for me, as I'm sure it was for many of you.
I completed my first semester of pharmacy school, surviving finals week was a success in and of itself, and then spent all but a few days of Christmas break working-- splitting my time between a slew of monogram orders and earning some pharmacy intern hours. Christmas was an absolute blessing, and so very needed. I enjoyed spending time at home with my family more than anything.


 

I loved catching up with some of my sweet friend's to celebrate a birthday.. with some good food and a much-needed night on the town. (Oh how I had missed Athens!)



 And cuddles with my sweet Millie were not in short supply. She was my little shadow while I was home and followed me everywhere. :)


 But of course, all good things must come to an end. Back to the grind of school, but honestly? I was kind of getting ready to head back. It's time to knock out another semester and be one step closer to my dream job. Work work work!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

All the best,
Leslie

November.

November. 
It's a month full of thanksgivings, recognizing and acknowledging all of our blessings.
The last few months have been so full of blessings for me.

I've watched one of my best friends marry the sweetest guy ever.



I've been working most weekends, and learning so much about pharmacy in practice.
I've been able to go to a UGA game in Sanford, and be still my heart. Athens will always hold a special place in my heart.


My sister and I have been overwhelmed with business, and it couldn't be more wonderful. We literally bought an embroidery machine on a whim, hoping we could at least break even. And at this point? We've done more than break even. We've had so much fun sewing, and can't wait to see what the next few months bring. (Sewing may or may not have taken over our free time though... ) Our etsy shop link is HERE; and facebook HERE.


And last but not least, pharmacy school.
As hard as it has been the last few weeks, I still feel so blessed to be learning and under stress. Challenging, but rewarding-- that's the best way I can describe it.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving break SO much.
I can't wait to spend time with my family,
and of course... eat a TON of good food.

My life--- it's busy.

The last few weeks have flown by.
I feel like I blinked and it was October.
School has been wonderful, and ohhh so busy.
In fact,
LIFE has been wonderful, and ohhh so busy.

I haven't posted in ages,
and it's literally because I'm spending most of my time doing schoolwork.
And those free moments of time?
I usually like to spend NOT looking at a computer screen.

Thus, the blog hiatus.
But I've started to miss it,
So here I am. :)

There's so much that's been happening in my life,
and it's hard to make it short and concise.



In the past month I have....

  • turned another year older... and 23 is not nearly as exciting as 21 once was.
  • started a new job
  • gotten more adjusted to life in Atlanta (I still miss you ATHENS!) 
  • been sewing like I work in a sweat shop... our Etsy page is booming. (more on that soon!) 
  • welcomed fall with open arms
  • learned a tremendous amount of pharmacy-related stuff, and have grown to love the profession EVEN more
  • been guzzling caffeinated beverages like it's my job
  • saw my boyfriend, aka John Mayer, in concert
  • been consumed by Scandal, and I want Olivia Pope's wardrobe
Hopefully I can post more than just once this month. ;)

All the best,

Goodness in the World.

These days when you turn on the news, or read the latest headlines it's hard not to see the world as a cruel and scary place. It's filled with so much violence, hatred, and horrible crimes that occur on a daily basis.

But then, just as soon as you start to lose hope in humanity.. you see something that completely restores it. Something that shows you there is still goodness out there.

Watch this video and then tell me your heart doesn't fill up with joy.
There is still so much goodness in the world.
It makes me look forward to having a love like this sweet man has for someone.
But have tissues ready, because it'll make you cry!



Much love,
