veg out: what i’m watching

Wow, a month into summer and this is my first blog post. Life has been crazy with moving into a new apartment, working in a research lab, and preparing for a big trip I’m taking in July, not to mention just recovering from one of the most hectic years of my life. I thought it…

If you follow my instagram account, you’ve probably already seen most of the photos in this post. Unlike most people my age, double posting doesn’t scare me! That’s why I wanted to write about my adventures with friends. Words only add to the photographs! This past weekend, I went with five of my dear friends…

one year

Whelp internet friends, it’s officially been a year since I launched this blog! I know, it seems crazy right? It both feels like seconds and a lifetime have passed.

how to survive finals week: winter edition

It’s the most stressful time of the year! And yes that was supposed to be read to the tune of a popular Christmas carol. I feel like winter finals are a beast all their own with the stress of the holiday season also looming over our heads. My problem this semester seems to be a…

blow us all away

I wasn’t planning on writing about this experience, but when the fifth person asked me today how it was and I still had no words, I knew I had to try and write it all down. If you know me, you know I’m not the type of person to “fangirl” over anything really. I do…

’tis the season

CHRISTMAS!!! THE SNOWS COMING DOWN… oh wait, not it’s not…because California. It has always been pretty difficult for me to get in the Christmas spirit.
