A peek into my break

While my spring break has been anything but a break (I spent about eight hours yesterday writing a 3,000-word paper), I’m grateful that this week has given me the chance to catch up on a few things I haven’t had time for during the past few months. Senior year has been flying by, and this is probably my last spring break for awhile. But now that my paper is done and is no longer hanging over my head, I plan on spending the rest of my break relaxing. Here’s a peek into my break so far:

The stack suitcase full of books I took from the library to get me through this research paper

A homemade mocha with a shot of vanilla extract (in what is quite possibly the world’s cutest coffee cup)

Hard at work on my paper

One of the many beautiful sunsets we’ve had recently; every night, the sky seems to be on fire
