March 2015 in Review

Posted March 31, 2015 in Faith, Reading / 2 Comments

Wow, March is over already. Lent is almost over and it is Holy Week already! Crazy to think how fast everything went this year.

Things that Happened in March

  • I designed covers for my journals. They are just composition books from WalMart/Shopko. I design a 7×9 image in Photoshop, print, and tape on. I love them!


  • My sister is back from college for her Spring Break until after Easter.
  • I got accepted for a summer job at a Catholic summer camp. I am very excited!

An Update and Holy Week Hiatus

Posted March 28, 2015 in Faith / 0 Comments

As next week is Holy Week and some of the most holy days in this Church year, I have decided to take a break from the blog. I will not be commenting or replying to comments in this time. However, I have a March wrap-up post scheduled for Tuesday.

I have made this decision based on a few different things. It is Holy Week. The most solemn days occur during this week, namely the Triduum. For those who don’t know, the Triduum is comprised of Holy Thursday (the day of the last supper and the agony in the garden), Good Friday (the day on which Jesus suffered and died for us), and Holy Saturday (the day in which Jesus laid in the tomb among the dead). I want to be able to focus fully on God this week.

This decision is also for my own sanity. I need a break to recharge and just focus on some stuff going on in my life. It is a crazy time of the year at the school as well as all sorts of things have been happening at home. I really don’t want to use this blog to complain, but can you all please pray for me? Thanks so much!

So, basically, this is just me letting you all know that my lack of posts, commenting, and replying is just temporary. I will be back by Easter Monday.

For all the Christians, I pray that you have a very fruitful Holy Week and a joyous Easter.
