Life update

Hi friends. Please accept my sincerest apologies for going MIA. I cannot guarantee that I am back fully just yet, but hopefully I can blog more than once every other two weeks. I should be back to blogging regularly after July 29th.

Why have I been gone? Where have I been? What have I been doing? I have not been blogging due to my workload in school. I am used to traveling during the summers, not having classes every day (although I will travel again in August, YAY, but more on that later). I am taking two of the toughest classes I have ever taken before, in addition to a third class. The classes have the same number of assignments, exams, work, etc. as regular three-four month classes, only we have to get everything done in seven weeks. After this summer semester is over I will finally have officially graduated though!! My days the past month have looked like this: wake up at 7am, get up at 8am. Workout, study, go to class, study, go to bed around 2am. During the weekends I have worked and studied. I am mentally exhausted and drained, as well as very sleep deprived, but I am not complaining because I can see the finish line. I will say that I have finally been working out consistently every week and I do not think I would have been able to keep my head above water these past couple of weeks without working out. Endorphins are the best. Thank you for reading this rant. HUGS

 

Sweet Green Chicago

On our first day in Chicago, we had lunch at Sweet Green and oh my. This place was like stepping into lunch heaven. You could either order from a set menu, or you could create your own salad by picking your type of greens and toppings. I picked my own which consisted of: arugula and spinach, warm chick peas, tomato, feta cheese, avocado, chicken, and pesto vinaigrette. They toss it for you and voila! So quick, so fresh, and so delicious. The juices were also fresh and yummy. The atmosphere of this place was great. I highly recommend this place. Can this come to Atlanta ASAP?!
