weekend, I love you

I have the sniffles for the first time this winter and hopefully the last time. 
My sinuses are awful.  

Good news, though...exams are over and done with!  I did pretty well on all of them, I think.
I didn't overwork myself, and I am really proud of that.  Last year, I would have killed myself studying.  If I got a B, it would have been the end of the world.  But, guess what?  Now is different, and I am perfectly fine with how everything turned out.

How do you deal with the pressure of school and the work that comes with it?

Today is going to be spent doing absolutely nothing, because I am too lazy to do anything else :) 
Have a wonderful weekend, loves!
here is a quote to end this post with...

Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

  11. Oo! I love the outside pictures, the lighting is very, very pretty. :)

    I deal fairly well with school pressure.. but I'm kind of thankful that I'm currently doing my course by distance. It definitely makes things a little easier!

  12. you are so beautiful!
    I think your quote can help with your stress issue. Do something for yourself when you feel under pressure-- self care is important!

    Hope you have a super saturday night :)

  13. Oh Emily, I'm especially loving the last photograph. Is that your porch? It's absolutely divine - reminds me a bit of Cape Cod!

    I'm so glad that exams are over; though I'm sorry to hear that you have the sniffles. My exams are on Wednesday. :/

    I tend to stress completely out at the beginning of semesters then begin to calm down by just going out and sitting in coffee shops. I find that just watching people come in and out, and the quiet hum of music in the background coupled with the smell of coffee always mellows me out. :)

  14. Emily, this is what I've been telling you before, use the outdoors. These set of images are so fresh. I love them. I'm glad you did well in your exams. xoxo

  15. beautiful, beautiful. i love the outdoors shot.
