Long time no see!
It’s definitely been a while since I updated the blog and posted anything. Truth is I’ve been exhausted. After coming back from L.A. two weeks ago, I didn’t really get any solid amount of rest for a long time; I was thrown right back into school and work, had my first big assignment coming up that I needed to work on, and the days felt like they weren’t long enough for me to keep up with everything (let alone have time to unpack my bag from the California trip…).
That Friday, I decided to visit my grandparents for the weekend and drove up to South Salem right after I finished work. It wasn’t too bad of a drive, but my poor baby blue car was almost mauled to death several times by big trucks on the way there. Typical New Jersey traffic. Once my grandma and I had finished dinner that evening, I was so incredibly tired but SO happy I was there and got to spend time with them for the weekend.
It turned out to be a more eventful weekend than I was expecting: the day on Saturday was spent on a long tour of historic mansions along the Hudson River, followed by a nice dinner gathering, and then we went out shopping and had brunch on Sunday before I headed back to NJ. All in all, it was absolutely lovely! But I definitely returned even more tired when I came back to New Brunswick on Sunday night.
This past weekend, however, I had no plans at all. I finally got to sleep in!!! It felt so nice to just relax, get some exercise and studying done, and watch a whole bunch of trashy TV (like, a lot). Coming into this week, I definitely feel more relaxed and energized and back on track. Can’t wait to see what the coming week will hold!
