Life Lately: End of summer + back on the grind

JOHN MAYER CONCERT // John Mayer is my absolute favorite music artist of all time, I know every word to every one of his songs, and I did not stop singing for 2 and a half hours straight. It was amazing and the best concert I’ve ever been to.

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve used the phrase “back on the grind” over the past two weeks I wouldn’t need to be grinding anymore.

Summer is officially over and my next college semester has begun. I’ll spare you the “I’m so busy” rant and just say this semester will be a crazy but highly productive (and fun) one. I’m now news editor of my school news org which I absolutely love doing, but it is quickly consuming my life. At least I’ve found a field I really love. Writing news, finding stories and talking about news incessantly.

Now that my nights consist of snuggling up in bed with my laptop surrounded by homework, textbooks and fall-scented candles, here’s a look back at last half of my summer, which was quite full and quite fun.

1. Shakespeare in the Park – don’t care too much for Shakespeare but love picnics in the park and quietly talking the whole time while people can’t hear me so this was very nice // 2. Yoga at the Outer Harbor (so relaxed, so nice) // 3. Spent a lot of peaceful time at Rushford Lake // 4. I love the drive-in because I can talk and sleep during the movie and eat lots and lots of goldfish and popcorn
