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: Nayelli

Quote of the Day: “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” Today’s interview is with my friend Nayelli. Nayelli and I became friends in a biology class we took over the summer. The class was absolute hell, but having her in it made it so much more bearable. After that class, we took General Chemistry Lab and Organic Chemistry together…both awful, but somewhat hysterical since we were together. Let’s just say we both struggled hard especially in Organic Chemistry. There were a few moments of panic, but everything worked out haha! I am so happy Nayelli agreed to do this interview…

Interviewing into the Real World: Kylie

I really value advice from different people especially people who are the same age as me or in the same stage in life as me. I think they are really the people who know what I’m going through and how I am feeling in the moment. I thought I would start a little series interviewing friends, family, acquaintances, etc. about their professional life as well as how they stay active and healthy. I think everyone’s story is unique and interesting and I think everyone has their own piece of advice to share. My first interviewee is my friend Kylie! Kylie and I met in the…

In A Rut…

I’ve been asked a lot recently by my family, boyfriend, and friends when I’d be posting something new on my blog. I’ve been asking myself that question a lot too and never can answer it. If I’m being completely honest, I’m totally in a rut. I thought this summer, after finishing school, I’d put all my free time (which is A LOT) into my blog and I did do that for the first two months or so. But lately, for the past month or however long it’s been, I’ve been uninspired, lazy, or lacking motivation… not sure which, maybe all three. I have multiple unfinished…
