project 12 | April

i love having my years captured month by month and plan to keep up with project 12 this year as i can. it's fun to look back on the details of our year at the end of it, as well as seeing how we change through the photos each month. :)

APRIL

HIGHLIGHTS
i am so exhausted after this packed month! i still kinda can't believe i made it through all of those papers and presentations at the end of the semester! this month i had 9 papers & 2 presentations due, with 4 of those papers being due the week of Easter so we weren't able to drive home and visit our families. that is the bad thing about when holidays fall at the end of the semester when the workload is heaviest. i honestly forgot that people even get good friday off of work because i had class and Thomas doesn't get it off at work. but my parents had the day off & drove down to have dinner with us!

Thomas's work bought out a section on the first base line for the Columbia Fireflies on opening night, so we went to that & it was a lot of fun! Tim Tebow joined our team this year so opening night was packed. Thomas's work has tickets every so often to games also, which are suites and club seats in the upper deck. we loved the club seats one time we went because they are right behind home plate and you can see the entire field! we are trying to go to as many games as we can when Thomas is offered tickets - since we will only be down here for 3 more months.

we had a few people visit during the month, so it was nice to have an excuse to take a break from school work! i already mentioned that my parents came down the friday of Easter weekend. my friend Jenna came down on a saturday and we just hung out around campus. it's nice to have friends that you can hang out with and just have a slow day and be okay with that! the weekend that the semester was over we had friends come down and stay the whole weekend! they have a 2 year old so we figured going to the zoo would be fun for all!

the end of classes was also sad because i will not be in classes at the main campus next year since we are moving back home. so i had to say goodbye to a lot of people that i won't have classes with again and that was sad. i mean, i am excited about being able to move back home a year earlier & i am SO excited about the internship that i have for next year... but it is really sad to be leaving all of the people i have gotten to know this past school year in classes. and some of my favorite professors that i wish i could take this next year. i am also going to miss being on campus because it's been fun getting random free stuff at lunch & walking around the gorgeous campus!
