Well, I hope everyone enjoyed their Friday and are looking forward to the weekend 🙂 Maybe if you are some of the lucky few with a day or two off for President’s Day Weekend.
Free time anxiety anyone? Strange idea, but I’ve been blessed with some genes that have me going at a mile a minute, constantly thinking, sometimes over-thinking, and always looking for something to do. 🙂 This leads me to President’s Weekend. I was a tad nervous how this weekend would turn out. Anyone else get anxious about planning something or schedule? Trying to learn. That’s what is great about my best friend, Liz. She teaches me to relax and just enjoy the moment. Still working on it 🙂
There were no big trips planned, I had no clue who was going to be around, and I “obligated” to hang out with people. After a great conversation with the ever-so-knowledgable mother, I reasoned, it will be a-okay. First off, my plans for next year have me pretty far outside of my comfort zone, so if I haven’t figured out how to hang out with the one and only me, I better start 🙂 So, how does this weekend look?
Last afternoon/night started off with some great time in the library (sarcasm, but it needed to happen), then dinner out with old roommates at Aquis, a local and ever so popular Cal-Mex restaurant. They are popular for their fresh ingredients and industrial margaritas, but I wasn’t such a fan. Then a nice, relaxing night at home. My friends had traveled home to snowboard so the TV was completely under my powers. Muahaha.

As for today, the plan is to travel down to Gilroy and later Carmel with a couple good friends from Theta. I am SO excited. Time to browse, window shop, the weather should be GREAT. I’m also hoping to pick up a dress for our semi-formal dance and maybe for Parent’s Weekend next weekend. Then tonight, I’m catching up with an old friend over dinner and more window shopping at Santana Row. Not bad so far. Remember, I have this weird desire to keep my schedule pretty full.
Sunday looks like a solid work day, maybe a bike ride in the morning, definitely a capstone meeting, and who knows what else. Question of the moment, to watch the opening episode of Amazing Race (a show I dream of being on…my 18th birthday was even Amazing Race themed) or the Downton Abbey finale. Oh such decisions to be made. I also hope to whip up a few recipes to share with you later on.
Monday? Well, that’s a surprise I decided upon with my mom. 🙂 You will have to wait for the preview or recap.
Then, my one and only class for Tuesday was cancelled, so that allows a full day for homework. Also, we are supposed to expect a significant drop in temperature and possibly some showers, so perfect for working in the library! No, seriously. I can pound out anything if you have me focused and it’s dreary outside.
As for exercise, my legs have been really bugging me (some outside factors looking into), so I’m trying to lay off the running. Not my favorite, but hey, it could be beneficial in the long run. That’s why I took to the pool not once, not twice, but three times this week. Instead, a lot of walking and biking 🙂 Maybe some aqua jogging if the pool is open.
So, all in all, not bad. Not bad at all. As my dad likes to remind me, carpe diem, hakuna matata and enjoy the moment. Also, wanted to include this picture in my valentine’s day post, but failed. So, here it is 🙂
How is your weekend shaping up? Do you like busy or open schedules? Teach me your ways 🙂
