My friend Mira was partially right when she said to not even attempt second semester junior year. While these last few weeks of school are incredibly hectic, the knowledge that soon I will be sitting in the sun, reading my favorite mags, blogging, and listening to my favorite songs with some gnocchi and my guitar, Paloma is very exciting. Whenever I need to relax the first thing I try to do is sit at my piano, take out Paloma, sing, and eat gnocchi. I call it my Paloma and gnocchi ritual and nothing puts me more at ease. I urge everyone to find one of their own. Seriously, you feel rejuvenated, empowered, and very inspired. So take some time for yourself, carpe diem, and find your voice.
