Life Update

This year has started off in full force, and I really wasn't expecting it.  This year may be my busiest in college yet.  My classes are greatly interesting and I can tell how helpful they will be for my future and I can even see how the topics I'm learning in one lecture apply to lectures in other subjects, which is really cool.  Not only have I been spending my time working on school work recently, but I've also committed a lot of time to help raise funds and awareness for my school's chapters of Dance Marathon and Relay for Life, serving on both as the communications chair.  I definitely underestimated how much time both of those organizations would take from me. 

Ordinarily, thinking about how much time I've been spending working on something would stress me out, but I think I have been handling it all really well and I'm really proud of myself.  I think juggling my time wisely is a skill I picked up somewhere along the way that I am so grateful for.  

I've had some pretty exciting things happening on the blog recently too! After feeling a little uninspired after what seemed like lots of hard work for little return for so long, I've been seeing a lot of reminders that I don't think I give myself enough credit.  It's so easy to get caught up in how many followers another person has or what posts they're doing, etc, but in the end you need to be proud of what you're doing.  Recently, I've been extremely proud that I've been getting posts up every day of the week (well maybe not Fridays... but we're working no that). 

I think one of my most exciting projects that I've worked on recently has been my post with Madewell. I'm still a little awestruck that I was able to work with a company I love so much.  

Recently I've been a little obsessed with making snapchat geofilters, which my friends have loved and people who aren't my friends have probably hated.  I'm convinced I've coined a new nickname "the snapchat girl," but honestly doubt anyone is calling me that (yet).  They're so easy to make and relatively inexpensive too! Both of these that I made for friends only cost $5 and make the perfect gift for a college student because it's personal and not very expensive! Two of my friends turned 21 recently and these were so fun to have at their parties. 

I've made a few more for other events on campus that have yet to go live but I will certainly update ya'll when they do! 

This weekend is an exciting one at my school because it's our first home football game.  Everyone wears white and brunch is a must before the festivities official begin.  I'm sure you'll see the dress I wear on the blog soon! 

I hope you enjoyed that little ramble of a life update! I might consider doing these monthly if ya'll enjoy them.  I think it's nice to share a more personal side with ya'll so that this feels a little more human! :)
