Do More [kinda]: Weeks 5 & 6

Be more creative.
Paint and craft more. More coming on this!
Use my talents to make meaningful gifts for the ones I love. Made blondies with my sister to send to our brother for Valentine's Day!
Write more.
Blog more to share life with family and friends. No too much, but Comps was all I could handle at the moment...
Send more cards and letters to friends and family. Lots of thank you cards for the love and support while studying the past few weeks!
Read more.
Read more books and novels that I enjoy rather than watching TV. Almost done with the first book I started for one of my classes this Spring. Also started a new book for fun!
Cook more
Try out 52 new recipes. Blondies, mmm!
Make a conscious effort to prepare my meals rather than eating prepackaged food. Made tex mex dip for my Comps group on Super Bowl Sunday and some new yummy breakfasts.
Spend more time outside. 
Go for a walk/run outside at least once a week. Somehow made it out twice the week of Comps. Have been out once this week due to gross weather.
See more.
Explore new places...they don't have to be far. Went to the Sheraton rooftop bar after Comps and it was snazzy!

A little behind the past two weeks but slowly getting my life back together. I'm excited for some time coming up soon to be able to read more, especially because The Hunger Games trilogy has been staring at me since I've gotten it for Christmas. Don't forget even when it's crazy to keep your priorities in line. Even though studying for Comps was crazy, taking the time to go for a run or walk everyday was key in attempting to keep myself sane. Key word: attempting!
