It's Thursday, February 22, 2018 around 5:30 p.m. and it's 76 degrees in Blacksburg, Virginia. I'm not going to question why. I went on a walk at 7:30 this morning and didn't freeze to death. Actually, I had to take my jacket off. I opened my window at work. Around 2 p.m. I booked it … Continue reading Thoughts On Unseasonably Warm Weather
I've been struggling with feelings of anxiety for the last few months. My mom pointed out that I'm going through a lot of life changes ("real" job, getting married in a few months, etc.) and I keep shifting all of this anxiety, which easily builds up in transitional seasons, to different aspects of life. Relationships, … Continue reading Rejoice. Always.
I am not a super "fit" person. I'm friends with a lot of great girls who seem like they live in the gym. You know who you are. I, on the other hand, only started consistently - and I use the term loosely - exercising the summer before my senior year of college. Whenever I … Continue reading Exercise + God = ?
I love leftovers. Foods like chili and pizza taste better after a few days in the fridge. Business idea: make a cookbook containing all foods that fall into this category. It could be popular with college students (or just lazy people like me who eat the same meal five days in a row). But there … Continue reading Leftovers
Let me list a few small life events that occurred since the last time I blogged. 1. I got engaged! Yay! 2. I graduated college (the next weekend)! 3. I got an *adult* job! No pictures for this one...unless you're interested in seeing my LinkedIn profile photo. All of this to say, there have been … Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Bet that's not you were expecting my latest blog post to be about, right? In case you didn't know this about me, I am very passionate about Taco Bell (among other fast food restaurants). I didn't become a fan until college, but now I'm a complete convert. I just have a couple rules for myself … Continue reading HONEST REVIEW: New!! Naked Chicken Chalupa from Taco Bell
One tall Pike Place blend is $2.17. The sun streams through the window.
Before I share with you the tangible things I've been enjoying so far this January, I would like to share something I am not enjoying: the weather. It's one of my biggest pet peeves when the weather doesn't match the season, and although it was bitterly cold for a few days after Christmas, Blacksburg weather has … Continue reading What I love this January
The other day, my mom and I got together for a day of marathon cooking. We made a ton of food that could be frozen and pulled out whenever I needed a meal in a pinch over the course of the semester. She was talking about how simple it would be to make lots of … Continue reading Everything makes me cry
Here we go. I am doing it, people. I am writing the quintessential blog post about my New Year's resolutions. But here is a fact: I have never, ever, EVER kept a single resolution I've made. Ever. Whether it was to work out "x" number of times a week, eat healthier food, or stop looking … Continue reading Obligatory “new year new me” blog post
