March Resolutions

I recently started reading the blog She Learns As She Goes by Kelli from the Messy Mondays videos on youtube. She does a monthly resolutions link up and seeing how much I love lists, I thought I would give it a try... :)

Read.. One of my good friends is playing the lead roll in The Importance of Being Earnest and we were quoting lines back and forth the other day... Me, badly... Him, like he just came home from rehearsal... So I figured I needed to read it again. I need to read Twelfth Night in preparation for seeing it performed in April at Blackfriar's Playhouse. I also want to read Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent series. I just finished Divergent, and it is very good... ;)

Attempt a Vlog. Yups, you heard me right. I have been wanting to try this out for a while, but I just haven't had time to play with it. Well, next week is spring break and it is on my list of things to do with all my free time... :)

Budget. Good intentions should count for something... Cuz I sure do have a lot of them when it comes to spending money... Or rather, not spending money... I really need to suck it up stick to my budget... :)

Work on an exercise regime. I have been working out with a friend once or twice a week for about a month now. However, it is erratic... It only works if we are both free, and neither of us have very flexible schedules. So I want to figure something out that I can do on my own. Whether that is buying a gym membership or waking up earlier to go to the gym on post, we shall see...

Ok, so this started out as an I ♥ Thursday post for LAST week, but, well, that obviously didn't happen... So it is just going to be a regular post... :)

 Just to let you know in case you are interested, I GOT A BIG FAT A ON MY FRENCH EXAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Lord was obviously with me the entire time because I only made two mistakes on the written part which was the hardest. I cannot begin to say how thankful I am for that. Now I know that the study methods I have been using are effective... and seeing the two mistakes I made will help in my proofreading for future tests. I am very happy. :)

Another cool thing that is coming up is I got an opportunity to go to the Blackfriar Playhouse in Staunton Virginia. It is the only re-creation of Shakespeare's original theater in the world. I was going to go with my English professor and some other students, but they were not able to get enough tickets. Well, me and a couple of friends were so pumped about going that we decided that if we couldn't go with the college, we would just have to go by ourselves. We are going to get tickets for Twelfth Night in April. I am super excited!!!! It will be a fun road trip with my girlfriends... and hopefully it will be warm so we can ride with the windows down and the music up!!! :) 

I don't know about ya'll, but I am ready for spring... Down with the cold, up with shorts and sandals, I say... Except for today... Today I loved the snow... For today was my first real, honest-to-goodness snow day... You know, the type when you have the burden of another long day of classes, probably some kind of big test, and then work being suddenly and inexplicably lifted from your shoulders!!! It was the happiest day of my life (ok, I am being a bit dramatic, but you get the picture;)). I was able to sleep in, help around the house a bit, read a book, watch some tv, and chill for the entire day... It was beautiful... :)

Well, au revoir for now... Until tomorrow's "J'adore Jeudi" post... :)
