1st Time Voting!!!

Hello everyone! 🙂

I voted for the first time today, in our state’s primaries. It’s something that’s not a big deal on the outside, it’s just a piece of paper. But it really made me think how lucky we are to be living in a democracy. We are so fortunate to be able to make our choice heard, count and determine the future of our country.

One vote may not seem like a lot, but it’s one more toward what you believe in. Not voting is giving the opposition a point. By not voting you are not opposing their vote. It’s so important to vote. We should never take it for granted.

So anyway, it was pretty exciting to be able to vote for the first time! Yikes, that means I am already 18….I feel sorta old. ;P It’s great though. I love growing up.

I am also working on a post with life updates and really nice ‘story time’ one. So look forward to that! Hope you all are enjoying summer cause I sure am! ❤

College Tag! :)

Hello! I had the idea the other night to make up my own “college tag” for college bloggers. I don’t know if this’s already a thing but, that’s OK.

The way it works is if you’re tagged you,

  1. Link to the blogger that tagged you
  2. Answer the 10 questions
  3. Add your own question (and answer it)
  4. Tag 2 other college bloggers

With that being said, here are my ten questions and answers!

  1. What’s your favorite thing about college? That I get to learn things that are leading me toward something I love. 
  2. What’s your least favorite thing about college? Bad professors & really think textbooks.
  3. What’s your major & year? I’ll be sophomore fall 2018, business management. 
  4. Your favorite class (so far)? Oddly, it was calculus. It was hard but rewarding and actually fun. I know, I’m weird. 
  5. What is one essential food to get you through university? For me it’s granola/protein bars. 
  6. One thing you’d tell a college freshman? Honestly not to worry about what others think but also to NOT procrastinate, at all costs, especially mid-semester. 
  7. One hobby you do/did/recommend during college? Try and read a fun, easy-to-read book once in a while.
  8. List your three essential items to carry in your backpack for class: black/blue pen, snack, laptop. 
  9. What was your hardest class so far? A design class, but since I’m not doing that anymore…this semester it was astronomy. Uggh!
  10. Did you live on or off campus? Off.

Have fun! 🙂 ❤

The Wierdest Laws In America!?!?!?

We normally don’t know the full extent to which the laws of our states go to. After all, how could we know unless we committed the offense…and who would even try to make glue out of a dead skunk? Yeah, me neither.

Anyway, here are some of the wierdest laws in the U.S. that I found interesting and ridiculous.

  • Arkansas: Can’t sound a horn after 9PM at any place serving cold drinks or sandwiches
  • Illinois: Cannot fall asleep in a cheese shop
  • Montana: You must finish an on-stage performance–you can’t leave halfway through
  • New Hampshire: No picnicking in cemeteries
  • New York: No selfies with tigers
  • Oklahoma: No making glue out of dead skunks
  • West Virginia: May not swear in public, or you’ll be fined $1
  • Wyoming: Failing to close a fence behind you is a $750 fine
  • Conneticut: Pickles must bounce at a distance of one foot to be considered fit for sale
  • Montana (my state): It’s illegal to play frisbee-golf on the plains
  • In Baldwin Park, California: You cannot ride a bike in a swimming pool

Comment down below your favorite one and a crazy one from your home state!

Done with my first year | Surviving finals

Hello everyone! Hope your day is going fantastic!

I got done with my semester and finals! I finished my first year of university and I can’t believe it went by so fast!

Now that school is over I can finally relax and I feel like I can do stuff again. I can look for a job, work out, re-aquaint myself with my long-lost hobbies and simply be outside in the sun and enjoy spring/summer. What are your plans for the summer?

One of my goals is obviously blogging. I really want to be able to blog at least once a week, but hopefully more. Because I finally have time for it!

So, with that being said, I know that although most universities are done with the semester, some aren’t yet and high school isn’t out yet either. Here are some tips to ‘survive’ finals.


Don’t procrastinate! I know it’s obvious but let’s be real. How many times do you procrastinate your homework or your studying? Especially when it comes down to the last bit of the semester. Sometimes we are so stressed we simply can’t deal with it so we procrastinate. I know, because I did it too. But in the long run it just makes us way more stressed out.

In order to not procrastinate, make yourself a list. Use your planner, computer, phone, notepad. Just write everything down. And I mean literally everything. Like I said in a previous post, having everything written down frees your mind from having to keep track of it so you can focus on actually getting stuff done. Read more…

Hello

Hey guys, I just want to say that I’m sorry I haven’t been posting but it’s just been really busy. I have only two more weeks left of the semester and it’s getting crazy. Between that and life I haven’t been able to take time to write a post, but I have some great ideas.

So with that being said, thank you for hanging in there, and if I can’t get in a post this week, I will for sure post regularly again once the semester is over in May.

Happy Spring to you all, enjoy the warm weather (hopefully you have some, for me it has it’s ups and downs), and if you are also in school and can’t wait for the end…don’t worry, it’s coming! 🙂

Also, if you have ideas for future posts don’t hesitate to let me know, I love suggestions!

The Canon in D | 1690-present

One of the most influential musical works of all time. Obscure till the 20th century. Why is it special? Who revived it? What is it’s significance today? Step back in time and experience 1690-present through the eyes of Pachelbel’s Canon in D.
