How fitting is it that my 50th blog post is about LILLY PULITZER considering it’s their 50th Anniversary.
I’ve been gone for a few days now, locked up in the library. It’s actually a lot of fun, weird I know. I had my accounting exam this afternoon at 4 and was absolutely dreading it, but at the same time, I was kind of excited for it to be over with!
We had practice at noon, which really cut into my study time. I studied for a few hours in the common room before heading to the boathouse. I consider one of my Dogeared necklaces to be my “lucky necklace.” I definitely needed it for the exam, but unfortunately there was a knot. I had been trying to get the knot out for a while and eventually gave up and put it inside my keychain wallet. Well, it was even knottier. I spent a good thirty minutes picking at the delicate chain. I was so determined to get that sucker. And I did… finally. It once again proved to be lucky!
Little V and CF were in the library, so I thought I would poke my head in and say hi. It was about 11:13 when I got an email on my Blackberry reminding me that the Lilly boutique opened on Rue La La. I SPRINTED, seriously, to the library. LV was already browsing. I stole CF’s laptop and decided on a pair of shorts. I put them in my shopping cart, but they were removed because they sold out. Boo 🙁 But I found another similar pair, equally as cute, but more importantly in my size. YAY!
At this point, I had to leave for practice. What did I see on my way to practice, you ask? THE LILLY PULITZER JEEP! I was freaking out! Thankfully, Georgetown Boy was nearby and I made him take a picture of me in front of it. Of course, I’m wearing the ugliest pair of sweats I own (Or as GB said, “Not one of the most fashionable..”)
Practice went pretty well, except for a smidgen of rain. I left the boathouse at 2ish and was beginning to panic about my accounting exam. I have a tendency to panic. I took the exam at 4. It was extremely difficult. It’s so frustrating when you know the material, but the test doesn’t allow you to show what you know. I was just going through the test trying to get as many random points as possible (I got at least one though… for writing my name, HA). I didn’t take the test with the rest of my class and I took it three hours before them, so I had to wait to see how they thought it went. They all thought it was insanely hard too, which is good because we’re graded on a curve (to foster competitiveness) so the average score turns into a B. A 42 percent could be a B… weird.
Little V and I went to get salad and frozen yogurt and we had a picnic dinner in her boyfriend’s backyard. I was still pretty upset about how the test went, but I was very glad for it to be over. Then I met up with CF and GB in the library. I’m finally able to breath a little bit knowing that accounting is behind me!
Time for a little R&R… Grey’s Anatomy maybe? Yes.
