If you know me at all, you’ll likely know that one of my biggest obsessions and guilty pleasures in the tv show Big Brother. I’ve spent summer after summer watching seasons of the game unfold and even went back and watched the seasons I was too young to catch back when they originally aired. I definitely know other people who are into the show too and talking with them about it is tons of fun, but I’m ready to get even more people watching the show with me! So here’s 5 reasons why you need to watch this summer
Have you ever said yes to something that you know you should have said no to? You have so much going on in your life, but someone asks you to do something and you say yes because you don’t want to let them down, you don’t want them to think you can’t manage a few (read a lot) of things at once or maybe you think that you can handle it when in reality you can’t? I have done this before time and time again. I have overcommitted myself to the brink of a mental breakdown. You’d think I would have learned my lesson but nope. I have a full plate and still invite new things to be added then get so stressed out and panicked because I have so much to do. Maybe one of these days I’ll learn.
If you are like me and you say yes to things that you know you should say no to I’m going to share how to say no when you’ve said yes.
I used to think that mindfulness was all about breathing and having positive thoughts only. I didn’t understand how anyone who went to university or had a job, or did anything other than sit at home all day, could possibly bring mindfulness into a busy life.
But the more I researched into it, the more I found that it was exactly what I needed to maintain balance in my life, and that it’s actually completely attainable.
Here are three ways you can bring mindfulness into your life, even with a busy schedule.
Saving money…. two words that are easier said than done. It seems so easy in theory/in our minds to save money on things, whether it’s only going to get coffee two days a week instead of three or four, or not buying that super cute top but saving that money to put towards student loans. But thinking about budgeting and actually sitting down to figure out the numbers and implement your budget are two totally different things.
Now that the semester is pretty much over for all of us college kids, I really wanted to share some things I learned this semester. Honestly, this semester was hard on me. I had a lot going on. We had just founded our sorority chapter, I was taking the first of my upper division classes for my major and finishing up my minor, and was working roughly 16 hours a week; just to name a few of the things going on in my life. There were so many blessings in the first part of 2017, don’t get me wrong, but when spring break had come and gone I knew I had spread myself too thin this semester. So here’s what I learned as I was spread too thin…
Whether you’re recently engaged or are just dreaming about the possibilities, weddings are hella expensive. Take it from me when I say we were struggling to make ends meet, but still had the wedding of our dreams. There are always ways to cut some costs down and here’s just a few in my opinion that were the easiest to decide on.
Although every wedding is unique to the bride and groom, there are usually a few key details that will remain the same. Most of the time these are the items you should splurge on instead of trying get the most bang for your buck.
All girls dream of their perfect wedding. Ever since I was really young I’ve dreamt of my wedding, but I’ve also always thought that I would be one of the last of my friends to get married. As it turns out, I was actually the first of my friends to get married, something I never imagined would happen. So what is it really like to be the first in your group of friends to get married?
It’s May, and for all you high school seniors, graduation is only weeks away. This is both an exciting and nerve wracking time.
Everyone has been asking you where you plan to go to school and what you’re majoring in. I can’t tell you how many times I got asked that my senior year, and once spring rolls around how much it intensifies by 1088248308%.
Maybe you are still unsure and undecided. And that is totally okay! There is nothing wrong with that! (Check out my article about following your passion here). Maybe you are thinking that traditional, brick and mortar college isn’t for you, you want to ease into it, you want to work or travel or don’t have the funds to go right off the bat to a 4 year university. That is totally okay!
Today I am sharing two alternative college options if you are thinking any of the just mentioned things!
This is my personal story of my struggle with an eating disorder. My story has a happy ending, but it took a long time to get from the spiral to the bottom, to my realization of the disorder, to getting the support and help I needed to overcome my disorder.
