What Made Me Smile This Week:

Sunday: it is my first night back in State College in a month before classes start tomorrow, I cleaned up and unpacked pretty quickly and was able to focus on work & preparing for tomorrow. Easy going, productive nights make me smile.

Monday: Today was my first day back at class, it wasn’t so bad, except that the elevator was broken and I couldn’t make it to one of my classes. My schedule is nice and open this semester, it will make working so much easier and less stressful. It makes me smile.

Tuesday: It’s my second day back and it’s been snowing pretty much since I got up and although I’ve always hated cold weather and thus snow besides it’s associated with cold. Tonight when I was coming back to my apartment in the dark, I realized as the snow was falling, it’s really pretty and this was the first time I’ve been out in the snow ever. It made me smile.

Wednesday: It’s 8 pm and I’m back from class, I’m done with all my work already and I can just relax. I think this is the first time I’ve been happy in State College since I came here. I’m grateful and it made last semester seem worth it. I’m smiling right now. :)

Thursday: I’ve officially wrapped up my first full week of classes a day before everybody else typically, this whole not having class on Friday thing is wonderful, it makes me smile.

Friday: I got my two remaining articles in to cover my car so I can get it back; a few more articles and I’ll cover all the bills I have currently, the relief of knowing that huge bill is covered makes me smile.

Saturday: I had a very relaxed Saturday that’s left me with enough leftovers from take out places to last me a week. (This is good considering you have to treat yourself to everything your first week of the semester.) My 8 reasons why you should date someone who challenges you post has been picked up my a second publication on Medium. Good vibes, good vibes.
