Brainwashed

Wow. It’s been a long time since even thinking about writing a blog post. To say that my spring semester of junior year…scratch that…to say that my junior year of college was the busiest, most stressful year of my life is an understatement. Despite this blog post not being a life update, I will quickly say that this year has tested me over and over again. It’s helped me to grow and mature. It’s tested my patience. It’s tested my relationships. And it’s MOST DEFINITELY tested my sanity. Yet here we are, sane (for the most part) and now a senior in college! WOO-HOO! Continue reading “Brainwashed”

Social Media Experiment – SOCIAL MEDIA ISN’T EVERYTHING

HI GUYS! So two weeks ago I decided I wanted to take a little social media break and observe how I felt throughout that time.

Treat yo’ self

I find it hard to take time out of my day, or even my week to relax and do something for myself. Whether it be 15 minutes to do a face mask and listen to some music or 45 minutes to take a bath, focus on my breathing, and enjoy the silence, nine times out of ten I prioritize school or work or other people before I prioritize me and my mental health.

Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

Mid-August always seems to be the start of the most time-consuming yet enjoyable time of the year. It’s that time of year where new beginnings are within our grasp and we are given the chance (as college students) to build a home away from home. We pack up our lives and are given the chance to start again in a sense. This year I have had the privilege of starting my junior year of college at Indiana University and lemme tell ya..it has been the most exhilarating, exhausting, fulfilling experience.
