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 1
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 […]

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 […]

busy bee 2
Holy crap. It’s Thursday. Take a seat and enjoy yourself. I can’t handle how fast time is passing, but what can you do? I’ve been back at work this week, with a class winding down, and the still pretty new roommate and the time for working out is ever so fleeting…but! I think I’m at my best when I’m busy. It’s tough to establish the plans I need to keep on track, but once things […]

routine, routines, list, habit 3
Happy Friday, folks! The week’s out and I’m in, doing my thing, as the case may be. My routine is shaky right now, I have a new person at home, exploring the next level of our relationship. I’ve also been sick for the past 2 weeks, so I’ve been resting up, working on schoolwork, writing, and catching up on Supernatural with the fave. My head still feels a bit like it’s underwater, but it’ll do. […]

Routine is What You Make It (Usually)


effort, friendship, relationships 7
Relationships are tough. Is it easy for you to make friends? As an adult, I’ve found that it’s pretty tough to make new friends. I’m a friendly person by nature! However, where, as a child, I could just make friends on the daily just by doing my normal activities, as an adult I have to go out specifically with the intention of making new friends more often than not. Further, the friendship that I’ve already established […]

Friendship: Responsibility for your Relationships



city, NYC 4
  It’s been both a long and short month this month, and I’ve been a bit spotty in some areas (cough, cough–sorry) because I just have had a lot going on, of course. However, it’s a new month, and a new season is starting…time for new beginnings! A Summer of Change, if you will. Change can be terrifying, but it can also be AMAZING. I think these seasons happen for everyone periodically, a time where […]
