Quotes and More Quotes

Even though I just posted some Spring Break activities, we do still need to acknowledge that we have one week left of classes. For some of us, like me, this is also the week that we have midterms. It’s going to be a long and hard week, and we all know we need that little extra push to give it our all. Here are some quotes (and a joke) to motivate us and put smiles on our faces while we study:

“Nothing is impossible. The word itself says ‘I’m possible’”- Audrey Hepburn

“If we do not plant knowledge when young, it will give us no shade when we are old”- Lord Chesterfield

“If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves”- Thomas Edison

“Just because it isn’t in your life plan, doesn’t mean it isn’t exactly where you’re supposed to be”- Don’t Trust the B in Apt 23

“Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.”-  John Maxwell 

Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.”- It’s a corny joke, but it made me laugh



My junior year at Loyola starts in 10 days. As the title to this blog post clearly states – I’m not ready, at all.

Between working all the time and moving out, this summer has flown by. I still have so much to do in the upcoming week – I still need to buy my textbooks, school supplies and get ready for my clinical, among other tasks. However, there is one thing I have already done. And that’s get and decorate my planner.

In high school, I didn’t really use an assignment notebook until my senior year, when I needed to organize clubs and college applications and all of my AP classes. Now, at least during the school year, you won’t see my anywhere without it.

This year, I opted for a black model from Barnes and Noble, covered with some of my favorite quotes.

Since I’m completely bogged down and don’t really have time to share all my pre school prep with y’all, I’d though I’d at least share all of the quotes!

Enjoy, and talk to you when I’m more settled with things!
