Senior Moments

I was walking through campus last week and the weather, the atmosphere and everything else were absolutely perfect. The leaves on the trees finally started changing colors this past week and the weird winter temperatures we'd been having for the last few weeks finally warmed up to normal fall levels. I was on my way … Continue reading Senior Moments

The Hiatus is OVER

What is up my dudes? You've probably noticed the blog has been on a bit of a snooze for the last several months. That is due to several factors some in my control and some out of my control.

My Spanish Adventure

¡Hola amigos! I'm back from Spain and I'm so excited to talk about my trip and experiences from my week abroad. It was one of the most amazing experiences that I've been able to have in my life.

How I Lost 50 Pounds

This morning was not the first time that I stepped off of a scale and cried, but it was the first time that those tears were from joy and pride. It's taken me almost nine months and it's been a difficult journey, but I finally hit one of my biggest goals and have lost a … Continue reading How I Lost 50 Pounds

Getting Organized for the New School Year

I’ve been in Athens for almost three weeks and while I love relaxing and being able to hang out with my roommates, I am ready for classes to start. I feel like I’m absolutely frying my brain with my phone and TV shows right now (I've been marathoning Game of Thrones for a week). So, … Continue reading Getting Organized for the New School Year
