Well hey.

I’ve been crazy busy lately. Yesterday was the last day of classes for the semester and now it’s time for finals. Lucky for me, I only have one on Thursday. Unfortunately, it’s OChem. Soooo the next couple of days of my life will be dedicated to filling my brain to the brim with reaction mechanisms.

This past week I had three exams: nutrition lab final (I got a 92!), sociology exam #4 (grades aren’t up), and NTR 312 exam #3 (I got an 84). I was studying so much that I barely even ran this week. Yeah, it was crazy.

I am exhausted. I’m taking today off from studying completely so that I can go watch one of my favorite homegirls KILL IT at her half marathon today! Then I work a midshift tomorrow, followed by a 10 miler, and the the studying extravaganza begins. Good vibes and coffee are always welcome. 😉

The apartment is decorated for Christmas! We have a small, but real, Christmas tree and tinsel and stockings and lights and a bowl of mini candy canes. Oh, and on Wednesday I took a picture with Santa on campus. It was hilarious, but that may have been because I was exhausted and stressed to the max.


I leave for Portland in 9 days and I am so so pumped. The only thing I really have planned is that I’m going to rent a bike to get around the city! I may or may not go bungee jumping off a bridge while I’m there. 🙂

Geez I cannot believe this semester is over! Last fall was pretty rough and unpleasant for me, so it felt like it lasted forever, but this year it flew by! I loved my classes and I’m really going to miss my assistant position. Nonetheless, I went through the semester with no regrets and I cannot wait to see what the spring brings!

Not to mention, this 5 week winter break will be niiiiiice. I have a week off in January for an adventure, but I’m not sure what I’ll do yet. Ideas? I’m thinking maybe a Louisiana trip because it’s one of the closest states. Or maybe New Mexico? Or even the Grand Canyon in Arizona! Where should I go?! East or West?!

Anyway, sorry this post has been all over the place. Life has been a bit hectic lately, but it’s been good!

Also, in regards to everything that has been happening in America lately… I’m sure that if you know me well you know I have my own stance on everything. But when it boils down to it, a human life is a human life. And in my opinion, all lives should be valued equally. NO life should ever be lost due to brutality or negligence. I’ll leave you with this to think about:



Good morning 🙂

I’m currently taking a mental break from studing organic chemistry. My first exam is tonight and I’m a bit nervous! I’ve been studying a ton and I actually do understand the material, but it’s still scary!

Anyway, I’m listening to Daughter on Spotify and it is so so relaxing. (Listen to Medicine). Also, the weather is absolutely incredible! It makes me want to dance with my best friend and smile at anybody I see. But I like that no matter the weather.

You guys, life is so good. So so so often I see people post/write/say “I hate school” or “I hate Mondays” and etc. I know that it’s not necessarily a vehement hatred haha, but it’s still so negative to say!

That being said, this is one of my favorite things ever:

good thoughts

🙂 Life can be hectic and stressful (I totally get that, just look at my schedule) but it is still so wonderful. There is ALWAYS time to watch the way the wind moves the leaves on the trees. There is ALWAYS time to tell someone how much you love and appreciate them. There is ALWAYS time to nourish your body and soul. There is ALWAYS time for kindness and gentleness. Thee is ALWAYS time to make the day the best it can be.

But first you must fill your head with goodness.

My head may be filled to the brim with ochem but there is ALWAYS room for good thoughts. ❤

Happy Thursday, you guys.
