When I go home for the weekend, it feels as though I am completely disconnected from my social media world. Although I have a smart phone which I check frequently, I still feel out-of-the-loop once I get back to school.

When I'm at home, all I want to do is spend time with my family. Rarely do I have a minute to myself and when I do it's because I'm sleeping. I simply don't have time to update my blog, reply to emails or even tweet about my day.

I have to admit that it's kind of nice to get away from it all for awhile. I mean, seriously, it can get a bit overwhelming with Twitter, Facebook, 3 different email accounts and 2 different blogs to keep track of. But, it's always nice to get back and lock myself in my room for a few hours as I try to catch up on everything.

Out of my element

Some things just aren't for me...like sitting in a lecture hall listening to a professor ramble on and on about laws and the bill of rights.

That's what I did yesterday morning, as I scrambled to take notes on what I thought was the most important information.

As I sat continuously flipping my hair out of my face so I could see the professor and write notes at the same time, I felt so out of my element.

Why was I even in this class that had nothing to do with my major, I thought.

I tried to focus on what the professor was saying, but the thought that this class that wasn't even required for my major could ruin my 4.0 gpa.

By the end of class, I knew I would end up dropping it.


It's just not me.

I like my fun mass communications classes where we play with Legos and write stories about our creations...okay, so that's not a typical class day. But that's what we did early this week in my feature writing class.

I like writing and creating. I feel comfortable telling stories and taking photographs. I'm not the type of person that can sit in a lecture hall taking notes for hours everyday. I'd rather be applying myself by going out and getting experience interviewing, writing, editing and taking photos for different publications.

That's me. And after being thrown out of my element for one little class period, it really made me realize how much I love what I do. :)

And another semester begins

It's been awhile...but Christmas break is now over and another semester is here.

This spring semester I'm looking forward to interviewing amazing people, writing new stories and taking a lot of photos. After all, it's all about the little things! :)

Today, it was waking up early and going to the wellness center for a morning workout. It woke me up a bit more for class and it was a great way to start my day!

A perfect night

Tonight, it's sitting on my bed with just the Christmas lights and candles lit. It's catching up on my blogging while sipping French Vanilla Hot Cocoa from my lovely Christmas mug & enjoying delicious Raspberry Milanos! Yum! It's reading inspiring posts from all my favorite bloggers and getting inspiration from their gorgeous photos.It's Leona Lewis singing in the background.

Nothing beats this right now.

Oh Christmas Time..

It's funny how sometimes I get so caught up in the drama of everything and other times I just sit and smile about silly little things. 

Tonight, it was looking at pictures on Pinterest and making a new Christmastime board. :)

Here are some of my favorite pics from the board:

See the rest here.


Now, I'm going to cuddle up in bed and watch a movie!

always amazed

Monday....No matter how much I write about it, it still amazes me how the littlest things in life can make me smile so much.

Today, it was callin my mom and just laughing with her on the phone.

It was running into all my random friends throughout the day.

It was realizing that it's Monday and not Tuesday.

It was sitting in the computer lab trying to study but constantly getting distracted by the song "All I Want for Christmas" playing on repeat through someone's headphones.

Tuesday...Things don't always go as planned, but things always seem to work themselves out.

Today it was unexpectedly running into my roommate on campus for like the first time ever and being able to chit chat while I waited for an interview.

It was interviewing a professor about an article he wrote and hearing his passion for the topic.

It was the simple fact that today is the last day of class this semester.

It was locking myself in my room to crank out two articles before work.

waiting for winter

Today, the silly little thing that's made me smile the most is the sound of the heater kicking on. I've been so cold lately and just the sound of the heater makes me smile because I know the house will be a little warmer.

It's been the little Christmas decorations popping up around the house.

It's been all the talk of Christmas and New Years.

It's been searching for the perfect gifts for everyone and for the perfect sparkly New Years dress.
