Welcome to a new series I’m creating called “Month Favorites”. Each months brings something new, whether it be the weather, a holiday, or even just a special event you’ve been waiting for. On the first of each month I’m going to make a list of things I like about the upcoming month, with maybe a few of the things I’m looking forward to in the next 30 days or so.
1. Spring Break!
Woohoo! After months of grueling hard work, preparing for SATs, taking tests, preparing for AP exams, working our after-school jobs, and finishing that long book in Russian, we finally get a week to shake our hair loose and relax! What are my plans? Going to check out universities and spend some quality time with my folks, mixed in with some best friends. It’s going to be an amazing week. And after all we’ve gone through, we deserve it!
2. St. Patty’s Day
Being the true Irish girl I am, I am incredibly excited for St. Patty’s Day! I love a good excuse to party and this being the only holiday this month, we really need to live it up this month. If you forget the traditional story, you can check it out here from last year’s SPD post.
Oh my goodness! It’s time for the spring to come, flowers to bloom, and for this dreary weather to go away! I love spring, it being my second favorite season (autumn being my favorite) and it’s absolutely fantastic to have it be coming back again!
Okay, so the SATs might not be one of my favorite things happening this month, but it is happening soon. I’m taking the SATs in exactly 9 days. That means 9 days to study, prepare, take prep tests, and try to keep all my thick hair on my head. It’s going to be stressful, but I hope you’ll be there to congratulate me when I finish taking them next Saturday!
5. The Hunger Games
It’s finally here! Only 22 more days until we get to see the exciting new thrill! I’m pretty excited, having read the books. I can’t believe it’s here already. It’s going to be a pretty amazing month just with this fan storm clouding over the rest of the days.
6. Spring Fling Week
Spring Fling week is only 4 days away and I’m pretty excited, this being my first year participating while in Leadership. We have awesome days, such as Sunglasses Day, Class Color Day, and Disney Character Day. Be sure to check out my Twitter (@teenenthusiasm) to see how crazy I dress each day!
