Shinnying Up to Success

Yesterday we had the opportunity to go rock climbing. I was pinning my hair away from my face when my boyfriend peered into our bathroom and chuckled at me. “What?” I mumbled trying not to lose the bobby pins I had secured between my teeth as he stared back at me in the mirror.

“Are you actually going to climb?” he inquired.

“Yes” I exclaimed indignantly. “Of course I’m going to climb! Why else would I be getting ready? What else would I be going to do?”

Little did I know that afternoon would be quite so clarifying for me.

DIY Mongram Weekender Bag Tutorial

I’m hoping to take my weekends back by knuckling down a little more during the week and I invite you to as well. For all of my weekend outings and trips I of course wanted a cute and functional bag. In my current track of life it’s just not quite possible to drop a couple hundred dollars on a monogrammed weekender bag. So I made one!

One of my new years resolutions is to find more time for me to enjoy all of the wonderful people in my life and to take a breath. Since I’m a college student and I work on weekdays the only real time I have (if any) is on the weekend.

I’ve only just realized the extraordinary value of weekends. I mean seriously in 2016 there are 105 days of weekend. This is a little over 28% of of the year which is substantial.

A Little Planning Never Killed Nobody

With the new year upon us I decided I wanted to become a better planner in 2016. If you use your planner efficiently I’m pretty sure you can become superwoman/man and accomplish practically anything.

 

I’ve always been one of those people. Since I was in middle school I have carried around a planner. By the way (just to clarify) I have heard of Google Calendar. It’s awesome and I do use it for some things – I just prefer good ol’ pencil and paper for most everything else.

Being a College Student (as told by Friends the TV show)

A huge part of my life is being a ‘college student’. For those of you who are not in college yet/not moved out yet or are old enough that you’ve forgotten about those couple of years I just wanted to give you a quick insight about what my week consists of. I love Friends the TV. show. Yes I know it’s old, but I still find it to be fantastic! What better way to explain my typical week as a student than with Friend’s memes?
