My boyfriend came to Tampa over the weekend for Valentine's Day and I'm pretty sure we circled the city at least twice. It seems like everything we always want to do is in opposite directions and we end up making multiple trips. 



Heart doughnuts, handmade gifts, and lots of iced coffee basically sum it up.

Oh, and geocaching--which is basically where you get gps coordinates that lead you to where something extremely difficult to find is hidden (this involved me walking to the top of an eight story parking garage and vowing to never do it again).


Staying Organized in College

I had a really exciting phone call about an internship yesterday morning, so I basically celebrated in my head all day long. (Now I need them to call me back again!)

Which kind of leads me to why staying organized in college--and life in general--is really important.

When you're applying for a bunch of things (scholarships, internships, etc.), taking a bunch of classes, working, and getting involved on campus, things can get a little hectic. My key to keeping myself sane during all of this is to write everything down.

Seriously, write it down. Multiple times, in multiple places.

Just last week I had my week planned out in my planner, a to-do list on my dresser, notes on my desk at work, and a sticky note on my laptop with my homework for each day outlined. Oh, and everything is color coded because it looks cool and it helps.

This weekend, I figured out that the best way get to know a new place is to just walk around. Not that I'm new to Tampa, but I found so many different places just from walking around downtown with my boyfriend.



I also went to the movies to see Project Almanac and it was...interesting. 


First of all, it was one of those home-video-style movies, so that was annoying. It was actually a pretty okay story overall, but the ending was a little frustrating. It had a somewhat clear ending (I mean you kind of knew what happened), so I wasn't confused. But I was still confused?



January Favorites

I'm currently listening to the typical Tampa thunderstorm going on outside my window and wishing that I was including a pair of rain boots in this post. I will get a pair this month and not ruin any more shoes! (If anyone has any recommendations, let me know).

I feel like it's been a while since I've written one of these posts, but surprisingly I didn't have 50 things to include.

I promise everything is good, though!


Fujifilm Instax Mini: My boyfriend got me this for Christmas because he's the best and he knows I love cameras. It's really nice for those moments when you want an instant picture. While they obviously aren't the best quality photos, I really love the look of them. The pictures are slightly faded and blurred, and have that vintage-y feel to them. Like a tangible version of the perfect Instagram filter. (I can't believe I just said that).

This weekend was definitely the most relaxing weekend I've had since the semester started. I managed to get all of my homework done on Friday so I was able to just enjoy the whole weekend (which consisted of Gasparilla and Netflix).

I also got my designated "coffee Sunday" at Oxford Exchange with my roommate. However, I've learned that they make their coffee very strong and I can't have two. Apparently I'm a one cup of coffee person--unless I want to be hysterically laughing, extremely overwhelmed, and very jittery for the rest of the day.


I felt a little judged while ordering my second cup, anyway. I should've just taken that as my cue to not do it.
