Complicated

This one word seems to just describe my entire life perfectly. I can’t even manage to think of something in my life that isn’t just a little complicated. I think a lot of it all comes back to my best friend being a guy… I’m sure there are other people out there with best friends of the…

Eventful Weekend (I Got a Puppy!!!)

So I might have been just a little misleading with the title… The puppy is my family’s puppy so he is still part mine. He also currently follows me around like I’m his mom so I’m just going to roll with it. I don’t know about the rest of you dog lovers, but in my…

Negative People = Negative Life

Have you ever heard your vibe attracts your tribe? I have, but I never realized how true that was until this year. This past semester at college was definitely one of my hardest so far. I was taking a lot of hours, had a part time job, and was a leader in many committees. Being…

Dorm Room Tour

Before I start anything I want to preface this post by saying that I do not have the typical college dorm room. I am an RA (resident advisor) at my college and we are given a private room for whenever we have to take care of sensitive problems with our residents. With that said my…

How I Prepare For a New Semester

The new semester is right around the corner. Personally, I start back with classes Tuesday and I’m almost ready but still in the process of still getting ready. I most likely would have been ready if I wasn’t an RA , but I have door decs and a bulletin board to finish. Otherwise, I am very…

Recently I have fallen out of love with most of the clothes I own. Usually when I’m getting ready it’s just a quick 5 minutes or less to pick out an outfit I like and now I change a good three or more times and still don’t like the outfit I end up with. I’m…

7 Things I Learned From 2017

2017 was definitely a year of growth for me as I hope it was for you too. I feel that without out growth and change that you aren’t really living because that means you aren’t challenging yourself and you definitely aren’t trying new things. Benjamin Franklin says it well, “Without continual growth and progress, such…

New Years Resolutions

I’ve learned many things throughout 2017. Some are my inspiration for these resolutions and others are just something I feel like would help me live a better life. So with that said here are my resolutions for this year: Journal Everyday Drink at least 100 ounces of water everyday Post on my blog at least…

What I Got For Christmas

I debated a long time on whether or not to post something like this, but then I thought about how much I enjoy reading and watching this kind of thing so I went ahead and did it. I’m sure everyone probably knows what I am about to say next and that is that I am…

A Day in the Life: Christmas Edition

I love the Christmas season! Something I have always found fascinating is all of the different ways people celebrate Christmas. Not only is it different just in your own family but it can be extremely different all across the world. I know a friend that actually goes surfing on Christmas morning and to me, that’s crazy…

My Volunteer Experience

I recently volunteered for the past couple days at two local soup kitchens in my area. If anyone wants to know, they are the Center for Women and Families as well as 4th Avenue Methodist Church. The experiences were soo different and from the name alone you can kind of tell that there were different…
