    Bullet Journaling in College

    Bullet Journaling is a tool to keep track and organize your life. It requires you actually to sit down and think through your life and record it. While it is a tool for productivity, it can also be used to create mindfulness in a hectic and anxiety filled life. I began Bullet Journaling in February of 2018. Since I had just graduated High School, I had a lot of time to journal. I had seen beautiful Bullet Journals on Pinterest and Instagram and wanted to create an aesthetically pleasing journal. After purchasing my first Bullet Journal from www.BulletJournal.com I quickly learned that this seemingly effortless artform was going to be much harder…

    Interview with Chani Lynn Feener

    Hello Loves, Earlier this morning I posted a review of Amid Stars and Darkness by Chani Lynn Feener. Now, I have another treat for you because I also have an interview with Chani to share with you all! I hope you enjoy! 1. What was your inspiration behind Amid Stars and Darkness? When I started it, I had just seen an episode of that show, Ancient Aliens. It had me wondering what the world would be like if we knew with absolute certainty that there were aliens out there, and how the main character who wants nothing to do with them would react if she suddenly got kidnapped by them and forced…

    Three Studying Hacks for College

    Studying Hacks in College Despite what the title of this blog post is, I want to make it clear that these aren’t “hacks” in the traditional sense. There are no shortcuts when it comes to studying but there are some methods and tricks I use to make sure I get the most out of studying for an exam. I am aware that many people have different ways of learning and studying and to be confined to one way will not help you in the long. run. That is why I would l like to make it clear that these methods work for me, but maybe not for everyone. I am…

    Until Midnight by Erin Bedford

    This fairy tale has no happy endings only dark beginnings.  They call them the Crimson Fold. High up in their castle they look down on my little world and wield a silent control. That is until the invitations are sent out. I never dreamed I’d be selected. They tell me it’s a privilege. I should be honored. But the fear in their eyes doesn’t lie. If I refuse to go, my family will be shunned. If I go, my life and my body will no longer be mine. It’ll be theirs. At midnight it will be over. At Midnight I’ll be his. Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve…

    Halloweekend Reflection

    Hello Internet! This week marks my very first college Halloweekend! It lasted a whole week, but Halloweekend sounds better than Halloweek. Today I want to talk about my reflections for surviving this big college holiday.   Costumes In the past, I had only needed one costume to wear the night of Halloween. I didn’t realize that Halloweekend meant a new outfit every night! Some of my friends had been planning their costumes since August, but I didn’t have mine finalized until the week before the events! I decided to pick three costumes: Vampire, Angel, and Alien. The Vampire and Alien costume were with a group of people, and my roommate…
