Hey folks! It’s been a while, so I’m truly sorry but my time has been kaput these days. But I wanted to take the opportunity to check in and catch up before the end of the year!! Yesterday afternoon the bae and I finally made it to Bonifacio (link) for brunch, which very conveniently opened up around the time we met. Now, I have enjoyed pretty much all the Filipino food I’ve tried, so […]

Tagalog to Brunch!


fall, goals
Hello, Fall! It’s official–it’s October, so it’s Fall. Nevermind that it’s 80 degrees outside. I’m all about mirroring transitions, so I am also transitioning into October: clothes, hair, skin, and meal plans. So on and so forth. I’m a fan of using already existing situations to motivate. Fall is a perfect time. I have my birthday at the start of the season, too, so it’s always held pleasant and positive connotations for me. I love Fall. […]

Fall into Favor


school halfway over
Y’ALL. As of today, I am officially halfway done with graduate school. GRAD SCHOOL IS HALF OVER. Wow. I would never have thought I’d feel like this when I started grad school, a little bit on impulse. I’d thought about it, of course, but I’d really only called my school for information. When they told me that I could get to start for the current semester if I hurried…I just kind of said ‘okay’. Leave […]

Halfway Through



adaptability
  I make questionable choices. I’ve written about how busy I am and how much I need to focus on time management, yet–I signed up for a half marathon. Ha. Oops. Well, in any case, it’s something I want to do, and have wanted to do for a while! Eventually, I’d like to have a marathon, a duathlon, and a triathlon under my belt as well. So, this seems a great place to start! About […]

marathon musings
I make questionable choices. I’ve written about how busy I am and how much I need to focus on time management, yet–I signed up for a half marathon this past week. Ha. Oops. Well, in any case, it’s something I want to do, and have wanted to do for a while! Eventually, I’d like to have a marathon, a duathlon, and a triathlon under my belt as well. So, this seems a great place to […]

Time Management Tips 2
HAPPY AUGUST! Woo! It’s finally a new month, and I’m almost out of one of my most frustrating classes (so far) in grad school. It’s the final week, and I have only TWO more assignments due. Then I get a whole week off! I can hardly stand the excitement. I know I’ve previously said that July was crazy, but July will be chill compared to August, y’all. My time management skills are going to be […]

schedules, jobs, to-dos 2
Happy Wednesday! It’s been a long week already and I’m so glad it’s all downhill from here. My schedule feels crazy! I don’t know how people with more than me on their schedules do it. I had a long, long day today with a job interview. And tomorrow, and Friday, too. And probably next week. But that is next week Jenna’s problem, haha. I’m struggling for sure these days. My schedule is planned out from […]

Schedules, Jobs, and To-Dos, Oh My!


motivation monday
Hey, all! I hope everybody is doing so well this wonderful Monday! Obviously, I’m in a great mood today. I hope I can spread some joy! I had an awesome weekend, despite some super gross rain. That probably helped, but I usually feel good when I feel like I’ve set myself up for success. Motivation can be tough for me, so I spent some time this weekend addressing things I wanted to get accomplished this […]

Motivation Monday is a Cliche for a Reason

Today I’ll be wrapping up our trip to Denver, Colorado (find part 1 here), and I’ll kind of be smashing the whole rest of the trip all into one big blob. The first day we got to hike, but for the rest of the week, we did have an entrepreneurial conference to go to for my bf. So we’ll call part two: the city. Ha~ Denver, Colorado: Part 2 The first day of the conference […]

Lily Lake in Denver, Colorado 3
I’m back from Colorado! Hello, dolls! I’m back in Ohio and ready to rumble! Had a great time last week traveling with my love in Denver, Colorado (and around, haha). I love Ohio–truly. But traveling is one of my most beloved treasures, and while today is back to business as usual, I’m still riding pretty high. The bf had an entrepreneurial conference to attend and I tagged along as support (and because we’re lame and […]
