Time Out!

We're coming up on the end of the semester and that means that everyone (me included!) is running around like a chicken with their head cut off.

I'm a firm believer that even when you're going crazy with homework deadlines and other commitments, it's still important (maybe even more so) to get together with your girlfriends and just... relax! This weekend I had a great opportunity to get together with my friend, Nicole, and learn how to cook a few of her delicious recipes!

A few of the recipes I learned from Nicole! Yum!!
Nicole is a fantastic cook who has mastered the ability to make healthy meals which still taste phenomenal! Nicole and I scheduled this cooking date a while ago because I really want to learn how to cook healthier food and knew she'd be the perfect teacher. We had an amazing time and I learned quite a few new recipes (5, to be exact!).

This cooking day proved to be a much needed reprieve from the stress that comes along at the end of a semester. As things are winding down and deadlines are getting closer, it's super important to keep your stress level in check and also to give your body the necessary fuel to get through the last few weeks. It can be so tempting to swing by a fast-food place or eat out all week to save time on cooking... but really those habits are bad for you physically, and can get rather costly!

So this is a reminder to everyone to calm down! Yes, these next few weeks are going to be stressful and full of a lot of hard work... but don't forget to set some time aside for you and your mental well-being! Especially for you fellow seniors out there: these are our last few weeks as college students... don't let them slip by with you stressing about how much work you have to do! Enjoy these last few weeks and cherish them because I have a feeling we will miss this in a few years!
