Hey Hey Hey!

Every night I dream that I’m gonna wake up and walk into a field of colorful pinwheels… but this weather is ruining EVERYTHING. Shout-out to everyone that put their winter coats in storage and then had to take them out because of the inconsistent weather.

In other news, the end is so close yet so far away. I don’t know if I’ll make it to the end but on the plus side… 2 more weeks till Haverfest!!! Anyways I’m too tired and stressed to make more cheesy remarks so here are the things that are going on this weekend (although you should be inside doing HOMEWORK….jk #procrastinate #tilltheend)

Also another shout-out to the warriors that are still playing WaterTag… I was elegantly tagged yesterday, which is good because my paranoia and blood pressure have dropped. Anyways, according to the lovely and always accurate Weather.com, the weekend will be looking sunny and warm-ish (high 50s, low 60s)! Which is great since there are so many events going on this weekend!! Lehhhgooo!
