Spring break is probably the most well known vacation time for college students... So for someone like me who can't stand to simply stay in the same place for too long, I would seem to be the first one to book tickets to the beach or drive up into the mountains - but unfortunately that's not how my spring break went this year, don't get me wrong, I had an amazing week off of school.... It's not hard to enjoy not being in class though! I chose to be an adult this spring break, and stayed in lovely Greeley and spent my days from early morning to afternoons with the kiddos at work. I may have spent my spring break working but this girl still knows how to have fun! The first weekend of break I went home, I was nannying but of course we went to the park and ate way too much sugar but I honestly would have done that without the kids.... At home over the weekend I also got to meet the newest member of my family, Eva, our Arizona rescued German Shepard!
After driving back to Greeley for the week I went right back home on Tuesday to see a band I am obsessed with, EchoSmith. I was able to pick up Grayson and bring him with and also meet my aunt and cousins. It's wonderful to see my family because they're all at home and I barely get to see them anymore. so I'm at a concert, front row - right on the stage - with people I love, it was so amazing. Echo Smith is a band of 4 siblings, and almost all of them are younger than me so that clearly sparked some inspiration in me to force my cousins to start a band as well... Not sure that will follow through as well as Echo Smith did though... Along with that concert I was able to see another band I LOVE last week, a gift from Grayson and my favorite kind of date night, MisterWives. WOAH was that band amazing or what. The lead singer was super sick but still pushed through the show and it was one of the best shows I've been to in quite some time. I even tweeted a picture of the show to the band after the show and THEY TWEETED BACK AT ME UGH best moment of my life.
But after Echo Smith, back to Greeley Grayson and I went. Early morning work Wednesday and the first round of the NIT at CSU Wednesday night but Thursday was my day off - so needed - Grayson and I headed home for my interview at Universal Sports for a summer internship. Oh dear let me tell you, I felt like a kid in a candy store being in that building. I saw a set, control rooms and even meet a few people ugh it might be lame but I LOVED IT. The interview went super well and I really feel like I have a good shot at a production or promotions internship with the company, I find out in a month or so! The week is only a little more than half over though. Working a full day Friday (I better get a huge paycheck that's all I'm sayin) and I drove right back home to watch the NCAA Tournament with Grayson and his buddies, I even got to see one of my best friends who was in town for his spring break from Nebraska, Davis, who ended up coming up to my school to visit later in the week! I may have spent a week off of school just working but I tried to make it the best I could wish lots of smoothies and ice-cream and as much relaxation I could fit in
No matter what happens, a vacation to mexico or just an afternoon with ice-cream and Grayson, I have learned to remember that every moment is a gift. Im so incredibly grateful for every cuddles from my puppies I have and that every day with my family and friends is really all I need -
- remembering to radiate love each and everyday -
