Fall Favorites

Fall is probably my favorite season.

The weather gets cooler, my favorite clothes can be worn, widows are opened, and the leaves change.

Well, except for in Florida. (I just pretend I live somewhere else).

My birthday also happens in the fall! So I guess that (kind of) makes up for all the other "fall" things Florida misses out on. 
The best thing about fall means it's time for comfy sweaters, hot coffee, dark nail polish, flannel with stripes, and boots. It's also time for everything pumpkin, but since Starbucks and I are in a love-hate relationship right now, I'm not getting pumpkin spiced lattes any time soon.

Now I just need the temperature to actually drop and everything will be perfect. (Or someone could buy me a plain ticket up north--I'll accept either).

What is your favorite part about fall?

Weekly Wishes #4

Oh, hello! Am I actually blogging right now?

The better questions is probably if I'm going to keep blogging after posting this.

The start (and current state) of this semester was a little rough and hectic (and emotional)--and then I got sick.

I also happen to still be sick.

Going to class is a daily struggle and I think I only made it to a total of three last week. (That was also thanks to a nap in my car instead of driving back to my apartment).


After binge watching all four/five (I don't even know) seasons of "Awkward," I think I'm ready to start blogging again. I want to be ready to start blogging again. (I also really want to not be sick anymore--that'd be cool, too).

Even though I would like to get back to blogging with something interesting and original, I'm jumping back in with Weekly Wishes #4. (I mean, why not start off by making it my goal to actually keep posting?)

Because "last week's goals" happened forever ago, I'm just going to skip the recap (because they all went super bad anyway!) and start fresh.

Weekly Wishes #3

Happy Labor Day (is that a thing?) and happy birthday Dad (who doesn't read my blog)!

I spent my entire Sunday making my way through nine sorority chapters. That's right, I'm going through recruitment and I love it!

I desperately needed a nap, so naturally laid in bed and put my Amazon Prime account to good use (hello season one of "Awkward").

Anyway, since I have my days scheduled down to the hour this week, I might not be able to post anything else.  I'm going to try really hard, though! I promise! (I hate missing posts, guys. I feel bad about it). *Hint* I even made it one of my weekly wishes.


Last week I set some goals that I really really needed to stick to, and I did! So I'm pretty proud of myself. I plan on doing that exact same thing this week, and you should too! Going back every Monday and being able to check of that I did everything makes me feel like more of a go-getter and less like a procrastinator (I'm trying super hard, I even make to-do lists now).


Last week's wishes:

1. Register for recruitment. Check!

2. Make some progress at work.  Done, and done. If nothing else, the most important aspect of my event will be there. (Just kidding, I won't let it come to that).

3. Write for 5 minutes a day. Okay, it didn't happen everyday--but it did happen. It may be illegible, but who cares.

This week's wishes:

1. Work on assignments ahead of time. I have a to-do list with all this week's homework mapped out and it's like a horror movie, but about college.

2. Personal recruitment related goals. Vague and annoying, I know. I don't want to post about them, and I think that's frowned upon anyway, so I'm not gonna.

3. Workout at least twice. My schedule got really hectic, really quickly, and I haven't seen the gym in a while. I miss it. I'll probably be going at midnight, but at least I'll workout. I'm going back to the keys in less than two weeks so it is not the time to be lazy.

4. Write at least one other post this week. I might also be doing that at midnight (or 2 a.m.). Dedication, man.
