laying low

Hey you all! So sorry for the long vacay. I have actually had a pretty psychotic last few months. After some careful consideration, I decided to transfer schools. After a rough transition to my large university in New York, I began thinking about a small college that had wait-listed me. They actually contacted me over Thanksgiving and offered me a spot during the spring semester. At first it seemed like the golden ticket but as time passed I began to make my way at school and the large size didn't overwhelm me as much. I ended up getting a 3.9 last semester, which actually made my decision even harder. I had to choose comfort or take a leap of faith. It took a lot of talking, thinking and prayer but I decided to go for the new school. I know it's small size and involved student body will fit my needs. I also know this university will help me be able to get the most out of my college experience and I also see it as the perfect place that will allow me the flexibility to learn about myself. I know to some it may seem like a lot for my first year of college but I hate settling and needed to find that perfect fit.

But where that leaves me is a long relaxing break. I won't be starting my new school until the end of the month and all of my friends have left for school. So I have been sleeping far too long, baking, walking my dog, shopping with my mom, on Pintrest(how addicting is it???), and watching way too much HBO. I have been on the search for a good book. I completely judge a book based on it's cover which has proven to be sound advice because I have read two duds (with really cute covers) so far. Any recommendations? How have you all been spending your free time?
