Step Into My Week: BBYO and Theater

These past few weeks have been quite busy. I helped plan a volunteer day that occurred, went to a BBYO convention, had lots of school work to do, and so much theater. Needless to say, I've been busy. The school year is starting to wrap up along with a lot of the activities I'm doing. I'm excited for summer, but I'm sad for some of my favorite activities to end.

I helped plan a volunteer day for 300ish people. It was a ton of work in order to make it successful. I'm so proud of the rest of my team for planning a wonderful day. While my volunteer group definitely had a few snags along the way, it was a complete blast. I absolutely loved seeing a smile on a volunteer's face after they realized they were making a difference.

ACSC (Atlanta Council Spring Convention) just happened for BBYO. This convention was the biggest its ever been with over 240 people signed up. I absolutely loved every single part of the convention. Looking around the room, I couldn't help but smile after thinking about what an incredible year its been.

At ACSC, Friday night was dedicated to the seniors. They get to celebrate Shabbat with their kids. It was a special experience getting to look around the room as parents bask in their teen's love for BBYO.

After Shabbat, Life happens. I'd been looking forward to life all year. This was when the Seniors talk about their BBYO experience. While most people dread the idea of sitting in a room for 5 hours, I absolutely loved it. The seniors were able to talk about anything they wanted to. It was super sad to hear my favorite seniors give life.

Saturday was a whirlwind of random activities. This year's convention was themed ACDC, so their were a lot of rock 'n roll themed programs. I went to a song session, Beatles talk, and an arts and crafts activity. Overall, the theme was amazing.

Saturday night is super fun. I got to attend a program that compared the four elements to the four years of BBYO. It was a really fun program that I loved. The people who made it were super creative. Also, their was a dance. It was a black light dance. My friends and I had a great time dancing, but we all ended up hanging out in a hallway after a little while.

Sunday was elections. I had been to elections at IC so I was prepared for all the sitting. My friends and I had a great time listening to people give their speeches. I'm excited to see what next year's board does.

The last 2 weeks have been filled with theater. I've been staying late and working on the show on weekends. We've had a few dress rehearsals and they went really well. The show is going to be amazing. I can't wait to see it in the end.

That's a wrap on the past 2 weeks. The rest of April is going to be tons of fun. It's weird to think that I have less than 2 months left until summer. Wow, time flies.

March Lust List

I'm back with another installation of Lust List. This month, I've been loving inlay on home decor. It is stunning. Also, shorts weather is fast approaching. I'm obsessed with Madewell, so I would love to try their jean shorts.

Step Into My Week: Orlando, Give Kids the World, and Purim

Sorry that this post had to go live on Monday instead of Friday. I've been crazy busy this week. The semester is wrapping up with next being the half way point. I've had tons of things to do this week.

On Friday, our last day in Orlando, we had a volunteer morning shift. The dining room was jam packed. As soon as I was done cleaning a table, I had another table to clean. To say the least, it was a busy morning. I loved getting to interact with so many families on our last day volunteering at Give Kids The World.

The afternoon was spent at Kelly Rock Springs Park. Kelly Rock Springs is a beautiful springs that is supposedly 72 degrees year round. We had a great time splashing around in the water. The springs had a lazy river that was super relaxing.

Saturday was a travel day. When we got back to Atlanta, the Uber app wasn't working. It took quite a while for us to get home. We ended up taking Lift. The Lift driver was super sweet.

I had a relaxing Sunday of homework and volunteering. I had quite a bit of homework to finish before Spring break was over. It took up the majority of the day, but I still made time to volunteer. I helped out at a Purim party. This other girl and I made food everyone who came. We helped package and serve the food to 200ish people. I loved seeing the kids' faces light up with excitement from all the activities they could do.

I've been busy with tech all week. We've been working extra hard all week to finish dresses we have to make. The outfits are already looking amazing. I'm excited for when we get to see everything come together.

Next week, I have a huge service project going on and a lot of BBYO events to go to. I'm already looking forward to next week.

Prom Dresses Under $350

Top (L to R): 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6
Bottom (L to R): 1 // 2 // 3 // 4

Prom season is right around the corner. Lots of people spend hundred of dollars on the big night. I rounded up 10 dresses that are perfect for the night. Most of them are around $100 but a few of them are around $250 to $300. No matter your budget you're sure to find a dress you love.

Prom Girl, the website most of the dresses are from, has so many options. It might take you a while to search through the site, but you'll definitely find a dress. They also sell dresses for other occasions.
