A Little Inspiration [Friday + Easter Break + Quotes] {instafriday}

Me wearing my lovely butterfly ring after getting
a French Manicure (I did it myself :) )

So today was the last day of school before a much needed Easter break!!! I can't wait to relax and sleep in! I thought I would share a few instagram photos from the past days (follow me please: thegentleflower)

Yesterday I had a Spanish mock exam. It was really difficult, but I got through it :)
We could choose a task where we had to write an essay based on this quote:

I seriously love the quote, especially since I travel and have moved a lot. I didn't choose this task, but I love the quote.
If you don't understand Spanish, it translates: "He who is used to traveling, always knows that he must leave one day."

On Sunday I got the GREAT NEWS that I've been selected as one of the FINALISTS in the Norwegian Handmade competition, Håndlaga 2012. You can read more about that here.

The picture above is a picture of the A Ray of Sunshine - Ivory Coloured Ring with Sun Rays, which is the ring that's been nominated in the Jewelry Category in the contest. If you like it, will you please vote for me? :)

Finally, I wanted to leave you with another quote, in English this time. I had a huge test on Lord of the Flies today, but the quote is from a poem we discussed in English Literature on Tuesday. 
I really like it, and would recommend reading the whole poem!

The last year of high school is tough.. but I'm actually looking forward to the upcoming exam period. That means I'll have lots of time to study.. and I won't have to listen to my teachers blabber nonsense all day and have to study at home instead because I'm don't learn anything from listening to them. Plus no more mini tests :D Don't get me wrong.. I hate exams. But I can't wait till they're OVER! I think the exam period starts soon after the Easter break is over. Yikes!

What have you been up to this week?
What quotes or poems inspire you?
Do you have exams coming up?

Whether you're an old or new friend, don't be shy! Please leave a comment below :)

Have a great Friday and Easter break!! xoxo

Be Thou My Vision said...

Well, what have I been up to this week? Monday we celebrated my Mum's Birthday-- eggrolls and desserts (cheese cake and ice-cream). My sisters and I went over to a friend's house on Wednesday.-- We had a little 'picnic' and prayed, sang, shared about how God has been working in our lives. Very uplifting! :)

This Resurrection Day, our church will have a sunrise service, breakfast, and then our regular service. I wish you lived closer, then you could come along! :)

One of my favorite poems is "We sigh for human love, from which
A whim or chance may sever,
And leave unsought the love of God,
Tho' God's love lasts forever.". It's actually part of a hymn.

Love ya,
Jo <3
