I've finally gotten to the point where I don't feel incredibly overwhelmed with school (except thesis, I will always be overwhelmed by thesis). Spring break was supposed to be my time to relax and get caught up, but the first week back was super hectic with getting assignments in that I had refused to work on during the break. It was still really nice to get some time in at the beach, though. I hadn't realized how much I missed it and I definitely needed the hours I spent there. 

My mom and her friend came to visit me this weekend, so we got some shopping done and found a new Italian restaurant in Tampa that I plan on going back to frequently. Italian food is the key to my soul--especially eggplant parmigiana.

In other exciting news, we've welcomed a fifth roommate to the apartment. We're all big animal lovers and couldn't last any longer without one--so we got a hamster. Her name is Spencer, after Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds (we're just a little obsessed) and she is adorable. I'm personally not a huge hamster fan, but desperate times call for desperate measures and I'm in love with the little thing. 


1. Actually start some design projects. Because I didn't do this a few week ago.

2. Find some new music. I'm a really big music person, but recently I've been just listening to the same bands all the time and I need to branch out. 

3. Figure out how to incorporate music into my blog. I'm not quite sure how to do this, but I'd like to!

What are your goals?

  1. I'm always on the hunt for new music. I recommend trying Spotify! The radio feature is amazing. :)

  2. You should listen to Sarah Bareilles if you haven't already, she has a beautiful voice. I'd definitely recommend her :)

  3. I'll also recommend Spotify for finding new music! Songs is another good one as well. You can listen to a playlist and find a ton of new artists you like by doing that. Good luck with your goals this week!

  4. I'm still getting used to how Spotify actually works, haha! But I need to start using it more.

  5. I listed to her a long time ago, but I haven't heard any of her new stuff. I'll have to check it out! Thanks!

  6. Thanks! I think I'm going to try and use their playlist feature more and let it play whatever it wants, haha!
