Reading: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
I'm currently taking a night class senior seminar (even though I'm a junior, I want to get this requirement done sooner rather than later!) where we'll be reading all of Jane Austen's work, as well as a book about her. The first book we're reading is Sense and Sensibility… which is definitely good, don't get me wrong! But it's got nothin' on Pride & Prejudice <333 because #TeamMrDarcy
Watching: Pretty Little Liars
I'm not even going to wonder who A is anymore, because there are just too many ways they could spin it. But in the latest episode, how the heck did A manage to write Aria's college letter into that receipt from Emily!?!?
Wearing: Hot Pink Fuzzy Ear Muffs In The Shape of Two Hearts
If you ever see a girl shivering her way across campus wearing hot pink heart-shaped ear muffs that are fuzzy (and a "little green riding hood" coat) - well, ya found me!
Listening to: Sledgehammer by Fifth Harmony
This is highly embarrassing to admit, but if admitting that I love this song is stupid, then I don't want to be smart! Grab your hairbrushes and get ready to dance, thus unleashing your inner 80's teenager in front of your mirror...
Inspired by: One of My Professors Who Shall Remain Nameless
In my night class, we were discussing Sense & Sensibility and the destructive role of emotions. My professor said something that truly resonated with me - "You must govern your emotions or they will tear you to shreds." I think this is so so accurate, especially for me - a highly sensitive person who feels emotions quite deeply! Something I'm going to start doing is ask myself "does this really matter as much as I think it does?" whenever something feels like a "crisis". By examining the bigger picture, the smaller picture might not seem as overwhelmingly, grandly important!
