23 Things I’ve Learned at 23

Quote of the day: “Blessed to see another year.” On November 9, I turned 23! Hooray another year older… and 2 years away from a quarterly life crisis. This year has gone by so freaking fast. It honestly seems like yesterday that I was turning 22. I remember it so clearly and this year just doesn’t even seem like it happened. Today, I wanted to share some things I’ve learned from my 23 years of life. Living through a pandemic is so crazy and unlike something you’ve ever experienced. At least I hope I never experience it again. Also, don’t forget to wear your mask.…

Feeling Nostalgic

Quote of the day: “Some days I wish I could go back in life. Not to change anything, but to feel a few things twice.” About two weeks ago, I went back to Eugene, Oregon, home of the University of Oregon, aka my alma mater. Man did it make me feel extremely nostalgic. I swear every time I go back there, I get so emotional. I can’t believe that freaking five years ago, I was moving out of my house for the first time and getting ready to start a new chapter. Seriously, how does time fly so quickly? How was that five years ago? How…

One Year After College Graduation

Quote of the day: “The most reliable way to predict the future is to create it.” About a year ago, June 17, 2019, I graduated college. I remember that day like it was yesterday. Sitting in a sea of green, doing anything to try and stay cool, and feeling stressed about walking across the stage, praying that I don’t fall in front of the most important people in my life and hundreds of random people. Seriously, those were the only thoughts running through my head. No thoughts about what I’ve accomplished or what I’ll do next… just staying cool and not embarrassing myself. Shortly after graduation…

Interviewing into the Real World: Drew

Quote of the day: “Self-care is not an expense, it’s an investment.” I’m back with another interview! Today I am interviewing a very special person, Drew. Drew is very into health and fitness and has some great stories and tips to share! Let’s dive right into it. 1. Introduce Yourself (school, major, job, etc.) Hi! My name is Drew, and I’m a senior attending University of Oregon. I’m studying Human Physiology with a minor in Chemistry. If all goes according to plan I’ll have my degree in a few months… I didn’t work throughout college (except during the summer), but over this past winter term I…

My 22nd Birthday

I recently (November 9) turned 22 years old. I can’t believe it. How am I so old? Before I know it I’ll be 25, then 30, then 40. Oh gosh… I’m getting ahead of myself. I’m sad my birthday’s over and I have to wait a whole year! I’m such a birthday person. Today I thought I would share what I did on my birthday! 22nd Birthday I spent my birthday in Portland with my boyfriend. We started the day with some Off the Waffle. I freaking love that place (and so do both my parents). Liege waffles are seriously the best…probably because there’s so…
