Weekend Getaway, Changing Traditions, & Taking a Break

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE! Well, it probably won’t¬†still be the Fourth by the time anyone actually reads this, but still. Know that I’m thinking of you now! ūüôā This year, the Fourth of July was much different for me than ever before. As you know if you know me / have read any of my previous posts about holidays, I’m BIG on tradition. I cling desperately to my traditions, especially when they have to do with holidays, and I basically freak out if anything puts them at risk. It’s kindaaaa ridiculous. I had a 6 hour long drive…

ACTUALLY ADULTISH – IT’S PODCAST TIME!

GUYS. I am SO SO SO EXCITED. Like, I can’t stop smiling. I’ve been droppin’ hints recently¬†that I’ve been working on a secret project, and it’s finally time to announce what it is! ….. Two of my closest friends and I are starting a podcast! GET PUMPED. It’s been in the works for a few weeks now, and today it FINALLY went up on iTunes.

How to Kick Ass During Finals Week

WELCOME TO THE BEST WEEK OF COLLEGE….¬†FINALS! Did you catch my sarcasm there? Real talk: it’s the week we all dread. Campus is dead but the library is poppin’, we all look like hobos, and everyone is carrying a cup of coffee with bloodshot eyes. The joys of education. I’m pretty good at taking finals, if I do say so myself. I feel like if anyone is qualified to give advice on how to nail your finals,¬†it’s me. I won’t lie – I’m a stress case about anything related to¬†school. Nothing is going to change that at this point. Buuuut…

Bras Are Annoying: Wear a Bralette

I’m taking a 180* from the heaviness of my most recent post and am going to talk about something really trivial to even things out. I’m so over bras. Like, soooo over them. I¬†have zero interest in wearing regular bras anymore. They feel like so much effort. And they’re so uncomfortable.¬†I think it’s generally agreed upon that taking one’s bra off is definitely one of the, if not THE, best parts of any day.
