Snow Days

We are currently on day two of classes cancelled due to snow and ice! This picture was taken today as the snow was melting, but yesterday everywhere was a sheet of ice. When I woke up on Monday and saw classes were cancelled, I was too excited to sleep in so I got up and […]

Gone with the Week

It is currently sleeting outside and the entire college is hoping for cancelled classes tomorrow! I am already planning a day of baking, reading, napping, and maybe homework. The roommate and I already made smore’s bars (again) in celebration. This is how you pack on the freshman 15 people. (Or junior 15 in this case.) […]

Gone with the Week

We are exactly four weeks away from spring break and I am very excited! We have been back at school for a month now, but it seems longer. I live by my  planner and it has to-do’s written on every line. It’s not too bad though, I enjoy my classes and working with my preschoolers […]

A Day in the Life…

6:45- Alarm goes off. Press snooze. Thank goodness I showered last night.  7:00- Alarm goes off again. Fall out of bed and get ready for the day. 7:30- Stress about what I should wear to teach a science lesson at the elementary school today.   Sweater: Target Shirt: Old Navy (men’s small) Pants: Thrift store […]

For the Love of Rain

This morning I had an early doctors appointment, so I treated myself to Starbucks afterwards because I had a gift card. (I repaired some jewelry for my […]

Gone with the Week

Alright. Sometimes living in Arkansas isn’t that bad when you have skies like this. I am almost positive that the only thing I spend my campus money on is Starbucks. I’m usually able to study well there though so it’s definitely a win-win situation. I sure hope everyone else was as excited as I was […]

Semester Numero Two

Whoa. What a start to my second semester of college. I’m not going to lie, this semester started off noticeably harder than last semester. I got sick the second week and am still fighting off a sinus infection, classes are considerable harder (and more boring) than last semester, and I learned sometimes you must have […]

Holiday Ramblings

This post is short and sweet because there are deadlines to meet. Finals looming next week cause feelings that only a skinny caramel latte can complete. Starbucks Christmas Cups. Holiday Concerts. Tacky Christmas Sweaters. Christmas music [everyday]. Holiday parties. An excuse to be overly cheery everyday. Yes, this is truly the best time of the […]

Friends, Family, & Fall

Hey everybody! How is the last day of September treating you? I am currently enjoying a caramel latte, so I would say it’s been a pretty good day. 🙂 This weekend was “Family Weekend” at my college and my parents came up Friday-Sunday to spoil spend time with me and get to know the campus […]
