Well after an interesting week, I’m ready to relax. Although I want more than anything to just lay in bed all day watching movies (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to be exact), instead I will be studying and applying for jobs. Hopefully I find some time to photograph some things. I’ve already started photographing lots of different things for my secret project that I’m working on. It’s killing me not to show you guys! Seriously, it is. But it will all be worth it when the project is done. (I hope.) I can tell you this. I’m making a magazine, and I’d love for you guys to buy a copy when it’s all done. But until then, I’ll just have to keep my photos, project ideas, etc. to myself so that I don’t give anything away. I know it’s really ambitious, but I hope to have this project finished by the end of June…so stay tuned!

There really is light at the end of the tunnel. My final week of class is finally here. And lucky me, I only have three days this week. My Tuesday/Thursday classes finished today, so that means I only have one more day of class of my junior year. I still have finals next week, but I only have two so I’m not stressed. I’m really excited for the summer. I will finally have some free time. Of course, I will still be busy because I don’t like just sitting around all the time. I have plans for different projects so I will still be busy, and I hope to get a job since the whole finding an internship thing isn’t panning out for this summer. I really hope to shoot more this summer, and I want to see my photography grow. I also plan to make designs so that I don’t get rusty. And I found this cool site (www.MagCloud.com) that lets you make your own magazine. I’m going to use it to make a photo book. I hope it turns out as amazing as I’d like it to. Well, that’s all for now. (Tomorrow I’ll be posting the much anticipated bridal shower post!)

This Saturday Six is a bit different from the past ones. I decided to feature some of my favorite products I used throughout the week. If you have split ends or damaged hair, go buy the TRESemme Split Remedy Serum. It’s amazing! And if your nail polish always chips, I recommend the Insta-Dri top coat by Sally Hansen.
Well it’s finally the weekend, but I will not be relaxing much. I have two big projects to work on this weekend. They’re both exciting projects, but they are going to be time-consuming. I am making a blog magazine proposal and a “perfect engagement” infographic. And on top of that, I still need to finish a diagram all about diamonds for my one class. I just wish I could catch up on some sleep this weekend. But instead I will be busy working on these exciting projects.

Yesterday in my Magazine Publishing class, my professor gave back our magazine analyses and handed out the guidelines for the next big project. For the next project, I will be coming up with a proposal for a magazine. The only thing is that I need to “create” a magazine that is completely different from any other magazine out there. Who would read a new magazine that is exactly like one that is already out there? Anyways, I want to “make” a magazine about blogging since I absolutely love it! I went to the store to check out my competition and found Artful Blogging. Although I am in love with this magazine already, I want to “make” a better one.
But looking through this magazine, my experience blogging and reading other blogs has really shown me the beauty in life. I love seeing inspiring photos, and I love showing others my work. I love to read other people’s stories and share mine along the way. I just want to say thanks to all the followers I have. Whether I know you or not, I appreciate that you take the time to read my blog! And for friends and family who don’t have blogs, you can always follow mine by clicking the link on the right side of my page. (It will send you an update to your email every time I update my blog.) Anyways, thanks everyone for your support!

Today is my last day of classes before spring break. I am so ready for spring break, but I have a lot to do. It’s rainy and yucky outside. I’m hoping the weather brightens up quickly so I can enjoy another beautiful day. My mind is just so scattered. I have to research for my music paper, and I have to work for Lovelyish today. Chad and I got stuff yesterday to make a chocolate mousse dessert, and I think we might make that tonight. I just wish all my papers and projects were done for the semester so I could sit back and relax.
