So I didn’t post on Saturday, which reflects how busy I was.  I had a bridal shower, which lasted longer than anticipated.  And in the words of one of my professors, “You no longer have free time.”

I just spent the past 20 minutes staring out of the cafe window at a friend of mine conducting an experiment. I don’t know what the experiment was, all I know is that it was for a class.  And I just stared. That is how easily distracted I am.

There comes a point in time when a student has so much to do, and yet jumps at every opportunity to direct their time and attention to anything but their assignments.  I’ve hit that point.

I’ll probably do my assignments and projects when class gets out, but I won’t start really working until later tonight.  Despite the fact that I’ve been in college for a few years, I still wait until the wee hours of the night to do my homework.  This method has honestly worked out just fine for me, and if it ain’t broke don’t fix it right??

There is no shortage of distractions, either.  There’s Easter, family birthdays, enjoyable spring weather, and the looming arrival of summer.  It is very easily to get distracted, and I think a part of me is tired of dealing with the same questions and frustrations.  It gets old, thinking about the same issues all of the time, and so I think that distracting myself helps me forget about it.

I'm Allie. I live in the wonderfully beautiful central valley in California. I am currently finishing up my bachelors degree at Fresno Pacific University majoring in communications and trying to figure out how to appropriately tackle the challenge of adulthood. FPU is the third college I have attended, I like to do things the hard way I guess! I earned an AA degree from College of the Sequoias in 2014, and then transferred to Holy Names University and spent an amazingly crazy year there in Oakland, California and now I am back in the valley! I love blogging, reading romance novels, watching The Bachelor and obsessing over my favorite Starbucks drinks. Cheesecake is my favorite guilty pleasure and I am happiest when I am curled up on the couch gossiping with my wonderful boyfriend, or playing tennis any day of the week. I spent 3 years competing as a college tennis player, which means I am addicted to the smell of tennis balls, can handle excessive amounts of traumatizing conditioning, and I have friends from all over the globe. Life can get pretty crazy if you sit back and see where it takes you. This blog is my little space that allows me to chronicle my wacky journey and all of the little side roads along the way.
