Drive to Win.

Pin It Now! It was a rainy saturday... but I never would have know because I was inside a high school all day for my sister's first volleyball tournament this season!

Aside from being a long day full of plenty of screams and cheers, it was also a bittersweet day. There's only seven days left until I move into my sorority house back at school, and it was probably the only volleyball I will get to see my sister play most of the season. 

And they won!!

Could it be... Summer is really coming to an end? A few weeks ago I was getting really anxious to go back to Ann Arbor, but now the reality of leaving home is hitting me all over again. I will soon be away from the people who love me most. I will lose some of my support system. No more home cooked meals. It may just be too much.... but I still am excited. I am excited for change again. I'm actually excited to live with 55 other college women (call me crazy).

Here's more craft photos for you! I decided to do iron-on t-shirt designs :) I love having cute t-shirts to lounge in!


Like the designs? Inspired by Lilly Pulitzer! I have been loving crafts lately. So much fun and such a nice creative outlet. 

Tomorrow is my last day of work for the summer (an all-day shift with a few hours off in between). It will be hard to say goodbye to my Noodles friends, but I can't say I'm too sad to get back to normal meal times and studying instead of serving customers. As much as I did like the job, it was hard on me.

Although, when I say it was hard on me... I mean it in a good way. It taught me a lot about the value of working for your money. It taught me that things cost a lot more than I thought. It made me a lot more cautious of spending my hard-earned cash. It also made me proud to be able to afford my OWN back-to-school clothes. I'm growing up!!!

What have you learned from working a minimum wage job- besides the fact that customers can be really disrespectful and demanding? I learned how hard it is to make a living for yourself. I learned to appreciate the people who do those jobs day in and day out, it must be so hard. I am truly so blessed.

"I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing."
Genesis 12:2
