Well…it’s finals week. As I type I’m putting off studying for two exams, planning a presentation and assembling a research portfolio. But. I. Just. Can’t. Focus.
My latest favorite thing to do when I’m feeling distracted is flock to my favorite blogs and vicariously live through their glamorous, non-exam filled lives. As a new blogger, I convince myself that this is just another form of “studying,” and that reading their blogs will make me a better blogger. It’s true, but this is not the time for that. It’s time to study.
Still, I thought I’d share some of my favorite blogger finds with you before I hit the books again. But I really do love reading about and seeking inspiration from other’s adventures. So, if you’re studying your heart out this week (and even if you’re not), check out these three links from some of my favorite adventurers, and remember that you’re almost done! Soon it’ll be your turn for a summer adventure. Just remember to read these articles through the lens of inspiration instead of feeling jealous or discontent with where you are, and you’re study break will be perfect!
1. Dream List by the College Prepster. Carly is one of my newer favorite bloggers, so I promise I didn’t plan for my blog name to sound like hers! She started blogging in college and recently left her day job to blog full time, so she’s definitely an inspiration! I love this post about the dreams she accomplished this year, even when she didn’t realize it.
2. How to Beat Post-Vacation Blues by Darling Magazine. This isn’t actually from a blog, it’s from one of my favorite magazines (I’m pretty obsessed with it, actually). Because Easter was so late this year we jumped straight from a four-day weekend into finals week, and readjusting has been hard. I definitely relate to some of these post-vacation symptoms, even though I didn’t take a two week trip across the world.
3. 2014 Bucket List Inspiration by Bucket List Publications. This is just plain inspirational. Seriously, she accomplished all of these crazy things in four months? Whoa. My favorite aspect of her blog is that she uses it to inspire others to try new things instead of just showing off the cool things she’s done. Check it out!
What has your finals week been like? What do you like to do on your cramming breaks?
Happy studying, friends!
