What I am/have been/will be doing :)

Hello! I hope your summer is going great, like mine! Here is some stuff that I’m doing right now, and hopefully you enjoy my little life update! 😀

In May, after the semester finished, I did get a job. I really enjoy working and having a job to do (or school) and I also wanted the money. 😛 Obviously…. lol However, I ended up quitting a couple of weeks ago, due to some circumstances at work and stuff, and now I am actually really happy I did that! At first, when I quit I wanted to look for another job because I like working, but I didn’t. I realized that for the past couple of years I had been working or doing school non-stop and I needed a break. So, I am really grateful I am in the situation where I don’t need the money to live, and I can just take the summer off. So that’s what I am doing! I think I did need a break before I started sophomore year in college and it’s really nice to just chill. I haven’t done that in so long. You know, even when you have a vacation or you get a weekend off or whatever, you still feel like you have stuff to do and you never fully relax. So it’s super awesome to be able to do that now!

So now I am enjoying the summer. The heat has finally hit us here in MT. It’s been so cool for the past few weeks, and the 4th was the coolest 4th I have ever seen! It was like 60 degrees F! So, yeah. The heat has finally come, it truly feels like summer, and I am just really finally enjoying it! I get to go out, do fun stuff, read lots of books (which I’ve been missing), and watch movies…it feels like a permanent weekend. It’s great! So I hope you can enjoy your summer as well, wherever you are! Read more…

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!

College Q&A

Hello everyone! I am going to be answering the couple questions I got about college! Hope you enjoy, and if you haven’t yet, please do subscribe to my blog for weekly posts! ❤

Ashley asked, Are you planning on monetizing your blog?” Yes, I am! I really want to learn how and try to get some extra income off of it. All subs and likes/shares are really appreciated! I love your support! 🙂

Emma asked, Is college harder or easier than you expected? If you could warn/tell your past self about one thing (before going to college) what would it be?” 

First, college is academically easier than I expected. Somehow in my mind I had made college out to be very, very difficult, academically speaking. And obviously there are harder classes, tough days and assignments you wish never existed, but overall college is easier than I expected it to be. In other aspects college is about the same as I thought it was going to be. Some professors are great, some aren’t. There are lots of great people, and some are not so great. Most of the college systems and staff are bureaucratic and the dorms and food are crap. Which is why I am so happy that I am living at home!

Second. This one’s pretty hard. Read more…

‘College-ing’: Tip #1

It wasn’t a total waste…

For my first college semester I studied Interior Design. I found out that I really, really didn’t like it, and that instead I love business. So I transferred and fortunately those credits aren’t wasted, they actually transfer as elective credits, which is awesome.

Besides that, however, I don’t consider my design semester a waste of time. I did learn things, and while most I won’t ever use again, some I will. Especially drawing.

I am not a very good drawer, or painter, and so for design of course you have to learn these things. Which is good because I wanted to learn them, I just never did. But now, after a whole 3 months of learning to draw, I finally have the basics and can actually sketch something that looks decent! It’s pretty exciting!

So the other night I was listening to something and I sketched this. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. I didn’t copy anything but I kinda thought of the desert when I drew it. I then colored it. So let me know what you think! (and if I should keep drawing!).
