Distractions, Distractions

9 days of class left and I really don't have time for distractions right now.
I have a draft of a paper due tomorrow, a final paper due Tuesday and another draft of another paper due next Wednesday.
I have no time for nonsense, and yet, yesterday I found myself lying in the grass for hours just hanging out under a beautiful tree.
Honestly, it was so nice to just lie there, probably wasn't the best idea because of my allergies or my "hay fever," but it was really nice. 
I was reminded that I deserve a little break every now and then.
I was also reminded that being outside everyday for extended periods of time, rather just walking to and fro class is important for my mental and social health.
As much as I had to do yesterday, it was nice just to play outside and then hang out under a tree, and just forget about all my stressors and worries for once.
I really want to take a step back and really do little things like that and enjoy life more often. 
I didn't get done all of the things on my to-do list done from yesterday, but they were little things, and that break from reality was something I really needed.
I am going to have another break from reality tomorrow when I get a change of scenery and go down to Florida for Easter break.
I am really excited to just sit in the sun, and also see my parents, because I haven't seen them since January!
But I don't know how much of a vacation it is actually going to be because, well, I have all those papers to write....
I think I am just going to bring my backpack with me on the plane, something I never do, because it's really not stylish at all....
But tomorrow, I think I need to go for practicality over fashion for once. I can't believe I just said that, but yeah.

Speaking of fashion, I feel like I walked out of a J Crew catalog yesterday...
Like come on, look at me, and look at what I'm wearing.
I love it, but I'm so preppy it almost hurts me inside, not gonna lie, even though I am T&P.
But I thought, I might as well wear long sleeves and shorts while I can, because it's probably going to get scorching hot in the next two weeks, or maybe not.
But still. 
I'm in love with these shorts, as is everyone else! If only J Crew still sold the print, or should I say prints because they have a little print mix and match on them!
Super cute!
I almost had to wear a belt with these shorts yesterday, because they are soooo big on me!
I know, what problems I have.
But seriously, I am the opposite of most college students because I have lost so much weight, rather than gained it!
So ha, the freshman 15 isn't real at all (for me at least)!
I am going to do a whole blog post on eating healthy and exercise in college at the end of this semester, so stay tuned!

Shorts: J Crew 3inch chino multi printed shorts (similar)
