Weekend Reads: Spring Break!
My study set up last weekend at the Athenaeum
GUYS, I got good grades on CORE 2 at Babson and I'm so stoked. WOO HOO. Work is crazy, so I'm glad I don't have any schoolwork to do because people, it would be a lot. I'm taking this week and next to do some reading, some thinking, some catching up. I'm heading to Maine this weekend to visit friends.
