Mental Health Days: This Friday, my mother and I are going to spend the day together. Yeah, I am playing hooky 🙂 But you know the best part of calling out sick for a mental health day? My boss believes in it and fully supports it. That’s right. I say to my boss “this semester is killing me and I really need a ‘me’ day to get some stuff done” and she says “no problem, have fun”…I call that a SCORE! So the plan is all day shopping in Atlantic City. They have great outlets (Have you picked up the pattern yet? My mom and I love outlets!) and it’s only a little over an hour from where I live. Perfect kind of day trip.
The End is Nearing: Ah, the last week of the semester. One week and two days and I will be able to say hello to my social life once again! It has been a rough semester; not the worst I ever had but trust me, it was not easy. This is probably the most work I have done, paper-wise, in my entire college career. There is still so much to be done…it is very overwhelming and at times I have no idea how I am going to pull it all together, but somehow I always manage to make it work. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer and I cannot wait to reach it!
It’s Tarheel Time: You may remember throughout the spring, summer and fall, I often expressed my love for the Phillies ❤ Well, take that and times it by a million and that is how much I love the North Carolina Tarheel College basketball team. I love college sports in general (not a fan of pro sports, except for baseball) and college basketball has always been one of my favorite sports to watch. I have been a fan since before I can remember, thanks to my Dad who has also followed them forever. My dad was born in North Carolina and the state holds a special place in his heart. I grew up watching sports with my dad, therefore I was a fan too. As I grew older, I became truly interested on my own and I have followed them through the legendary Dean Smith years and the not-so legendary Gutheridge/Doherty years. I love Roy Williams and I don’t hold it against him that he still roots for Kansas (when they aren’t playing the Tarheels). My dad and I often watch games together (my mom looks for somewhere to hide- we have potty mouths 😦 ) and two years ago I was even lucky enough to score tickets for my dad and I to attend a game when they were here playing UPENN. It was one of the highlights of my life. And if you think I am excited now, just wait until March rolls around! The current season recently started and I am pumped. It is mostly a new team and I look forward to seeing how they progress. Tonight, they play my least favorite team, Michigan State and I hope they have a repeat of last years NCAA tourney where they beat them for the win 🙂
What is your favorite sport to watch? Do you root for your home teams?
