I made chili for my friends today. It was super nice! We'll be going hot tubbing in a bit. Self care is important...especially during finals week!
I was in a panel today for 8th and 10th graders. I talked about how affordable CSS actually is and about the clubs I'm involved in such as the Latino Student Union, and the Black Student Union. I'm glad that there are support groups for students of color. I'm excited to see what we do in those clubs next semester. I know that for LSU we'll be celebrating El Dia De Los Reyes.
During finals week there is always free food around campus. Today, there were FREE sloppy joes and snacks in health services. And yesterday, at the GDR there was free breakfast! I took advantage of both, of course!!!
Although my finals schedule is the most relaxed yet since I've been at CSS, I think it's important to find a balance between time spent on school work and time spent on yourself. Today, a friend and I went to Caribou in Canal Park for a buy-one-get-one drink special and to work on some things for finals. After spending a couple hours there and getting a few things done, we decided to get something to eat at Pizza Luce. We spent a good amount of the day thinking about our school work and other things that needed to be done, but were able to put the work aside for an hour or so to enjoy a nice lunch.
