Julie's Jukes: A much needed break

Julie's Jukes: A much needed break

The countdown to the end of the semester has begun! We have two weeks left of the spring semester and I can’t wait.

This spring semester has been the most stressful and overwhelming period of time that I have ever experienced in my whole life.

I’ve got to be honest, I have had multiple stress burnouts and breakdowns this semester.

I am so glad that the semester is almost over, and I am just praying I pass all my classes.

My plans for this summer include taking two classes, working and taking some time to give myself a much-needed break.

I have been running on empty all semester and I have no idea how I have made it this far.

I plan to make sure I put in some “me time” to focus on my mental and physical health, since I have been neglecting those things all semester.

To start off my summer break, my mom, sister and I have planned a girls’ trip to Tennessee. My sister’s friend is getting married in Tennessee and we decided to take advantage of the situation and spend a whole week there.

We rented an Airbnb and plan to spend the week relaxing and sightseeing. We even plan to have a spa day.

When that vacation is over, I plan on doing a full, deep cleaning of my apartment. My apartment reflects how chaotic this semester has been for me, and desperately needs to be cleaned.

I also want to make sure I spend more time with my family, boyfriend and friends this summer.

After that I don’t have any specific plans, but I am going to put my health first and make sure I don’t overexert myself.

What plans do you have for the summer?
