  • My Fall/Winter Music Playlist 2018

    Hello! Today I am sharing with you guys some songs from my Fall/Winter playlist. I have been known to change my music taste with the seasons. This summer, it was country music all the time, and before that, it was show tunes (though showtunes is sort of a constant). Recently, I have been listening to a mix of indie and folk songs. I like songs that tell stories, that have a purpose, so I wanted to share the ten songs I have been listening to this fall and winter (in no particular order): This Heart I Know by Westward the Tide Somewhere Only We Know by Keane North Carolina by Little…

  • Top Ten Tuesdays: Books I Would Not Read Again

    Hello Bookies! Today I am giving you all my Top Ten books (and series) I would not read again.

  • Getting Sick in College + Tips to Avoid it

    Getting Sick in College – Yes it sucks. College. A place filled with endless opportunities, fun adventures, and germs. Yes, adjusting to this new environment does mean that you are likely to get sick within your first year. This phenomenon has been coined the Freshman Plague, and I caught it a few weeks ago. It started with a sore throat, then a cough, and then I couldn’t move from my bed. I went to the health center in order to be diagnosed by a real doctor, and not Healthline. Thankfully, I did not have strep, just a pretty bad Post Nasal Drip, but damn, that recovery process was brutal. I…

  • 2019 Reading Goals

    Hello Everyone! Welcome to 2019! Today I am going to be talking about my 2019 Reading Goals! These are just some things that I want to accomplish in the next year bookwise. I wasn’t sure what a reading goal was at first, so I read some blogs (Coffee Cocktails and Books, Riveted, What Cathy Read Next) for some inspiration! My Goodreads reading goal is 80 Books this year! Without further ado, here is my list: Read 5 Books I already Own:  I get a lot of books as presents, or there are just books that I bought but haven’t read. So I am making it a goal to read five…

  • First Semester Wrap Up

    I made it through my First Semester! Happy Sunday to you all! Tis the Season…for Winter Break! That magical period with no school, no homework, just relaxation, and recharging. I for one am counting down the days until my family, and I go on a cruise to the Caribbean! I haven’t been on a cruise since my trip to Alaska 5 years ago! Finishing my first semester of college is a pretty big deal. Some weeks were better than others, but I made it to the other side. Looking back this first semester, there were a lot of things I wished I’d done differently. For example, I wish I ate a…
