April 2017 Overview


Oh my dear goodness... The month of April felt extremely long! For the most part I blame the fact that it was the last month of school... I went to the last day of my classes on the 28th and then this week I have all of my Exams. Wish me luck, I'll definitely need it!

Anywho, it's been a long time since I've written out a post. It's really nice to get back into it after editing and posting so many photos. As you have have noticed, I did miss several days during my photography challenge over the month of April, but I did most of them! It's the effort that counts, right?

April was really crunch time for me when it came to my classes. I pushed every last bit of energy and focus into my classes. I didn't sleep very much, I chugged a lot of energy drinks, and I spent a lot of time wanting to throw my computer at a wall.

One of the most frustrating things that happened was the school (who owns the apartment that I live in) decided to change their Wifi policy. They put up their own router for school wifi (the same wifi found on campus) at the apartment and turned off the regular boxes and such (I'm not a technology person) so that we could no longer use our own wifi router. I at first thought that this was all well and good until I found out that, on the school wifi, you can't connect a smart TV or a wireless printer to it.

This happened 2 weeks before the end of classes. There were 2 weeks left of classes, and the week of final exams, and I no longer could use my printer!

Someone in some office somewhere decided that, without notice, it was a good idea to change the entire wifi system, and to change all of the rules (like being able to have/use a wireless printer) 2 weeks during the most stressful time in a college students semester!

I had to run to the store in the middle of the night -because why would I be sleeping, and why would they make the official change during the day - to get a cable to be able to hook up my laptop to be able to print anything.

The least they could have done was let me know ahead of time! Or, you know, wait 3 weeks to do it in the summer when people weren't trying to get things done.

Throughout April I was also having many the roommate issues, but I have a separate post going up later this month about that, so be sure to check back!

In April I also started to plan a surprise trip home for a weekend to be able to go to my little brother's graduation from high school. That'll be happening near the end of this month, but I'm really excited about it! I keep thinking about how it'll go down - and how they'll react! I'm really looking forward to it, and looking forward to being able to see my guinea pigs again.

My guinea pigs have been doing really well! Although Pepe did get a start on a respiratory infection, but my mom got him into the vet really quickly and got the right medicine to get him back to normal. I was really sad about not being able to be there for it and to take care of him myself, but I knew my mom had it handled. I can't wait to get to see them! I've really missed my boys a ton!

One of my favorite things ever in April was the new Beauty and the Beast live action film (You know, the one with Emma Watson). I went and saw it in the theater 3 times over the course of April and I seriously want to buy it as soon as it comes out. If I have the money for it I most definitely will!

I love Disney movies anyway, and I loved the new version of Cinderella that they made, but this one seriously stole the show! The costumes, the music, the sets! I don't think they could have made it better if they tried.

April was also a time where I worked a lot of extra hours for my job. There were a lot of people who called in sick or who had emergencies come up, so I was stepping up to cover their shifts because no one else wanted to. I'm assuming because it was a stressful month anyway and they didn't want to spend valuable study time working someone else's shifts.

For the most part, I'm really hoping that I'll be able to get a day off soon because of it! That would be really great - a day off in the summer.

So yeah! April was a really stressful month that lasted forever, and I'm happy to be nearing the end of this semester and heading into the summer. What was your April like? I'll see you on Thursday
