My enneagram number is a three and I would say it is almost perfect at describing me. I am constantly working so I feel accomplished at the end of the day looking at my completed to do list. This week has been a whirlwind and I had to accept the fact that I am not going to be motivated and productive everyday. I have been so busy this semester that I have been so burnt out this week. I don’t think the cold weather is helping me but I am doing my best to just do my best. For this college outfits of the week post, I am sharing more teacher outfit ideas and then some random looks I threw together in order to stay warm while heading to class and working on homework!
My Sunday started by getting up and putting on a festive outfit for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t have any plans for the day other than homework but I wanted to get a little dressed up. This white top is one of my favorites and was a perfect outfit for a productive work from home day. I treated myself to some Dunkin’ for breakfast and then I got busy sitting at my desk for the remainder of the day.
My Monday morning started off bright and early at my school for some more student teaching observations. After finishing up the morning of observations I headed back to campus for a work day. I am taking two online courses this semester so I got all my online work done for the week and attended a Zoom class. This week has been a schoolwork heavy week which hasn’t left a lot of time for the blog but I did get a video filmed as well.
Tuesday is my LONG day of classes so I opted for a cozy sweater and jeans combo. This is my go to outfit for class and this sweater is the best style. My day was spent with a lot of editing and prep for my blog content this week. I also spent time working on more schoolwork. Taking 17 credit hours, student teaching, and blogging full time is hard and I am doing my best to find a balance!
My Wednesday was very relaxing which was exactly what I needed. It has been so cold here in North Carolina but I am by no means complaining because I know so many people had it SO much worse this past week. I slept in this morning and waking up without an alarm felt so good. My morning was slow and I got quite a bit of work done from bed. I ended up getting dressed to help myself feel better and stay productive. I also spent some time catching up on the new episode of All American, this season is so good and I have been loving watching it each week!
We were supposed to get an ice storm on Thursday but nothing really happened here on campus. However, two of the three classes I had were moved to Zoom because of it. I want to keep my content real and honest. This week has been stressful and I have felt very overwhelmed. I took advantage of being able to work from home today and spent my entire afternoon getting my life organized.
I headed back to my school today for a full day of observations and teaching. Like I said, I love being in the classroom and spending the entire day in the classroom was a perfect way to end a stressful week. After getting back to campus I headed to the student center and grabbed a study room to get work done for a couple of hours. I have a long to do list for this weekend so I didn’t want to waste any time. I cleaned my apartment and got my laundry done. It felt so so good to cross so many items off my to do list this early in my weekend!
I had a LONG to do list of items to complete on Saturday and although I checked a good amount off, I still am feeling so overwhelmed by everything I didn’t do. I spent the day pre-filming some videos, working on homework, and studying for a big upcoming test that I have. All my roommates went home for the weekend so I had the whole place to myself which is always so nice. I have been doing a lot of research on ways I can improve the blog so I also spent a good portion of my day reading articles and watching videos to better my content for all of you!
