Keep Calm and Get Ready for Break

Two weeks from today I'll be on my way home for thanksgiving break and I. CANNOT. WAIT. I love being at school and hanging out with all of the wonderful friends I've made, but there truly is no place like home. I've come up with five reasons why I can't wait to go home for Thanksgiving break.

1. Taking a break

Although I'll probably end up doing homework at some point over the break, it will be nice to not think about looming due dates and catch up on some sleep for a bit.

2. Thanksgiving food

I love food, that is not a secret. But thanksgiving food.....oh my goodness. Eating my weight in mashed potatoes sounds like the perfect day right now.

3. Black Friday shopping

One of my favorite parts about break is doing the American tradition of waking up at an ungodly hour and standing in long lines for discounted blankets and socks! It sounds crazy but it's actually really fun, and it has become a tradition in my family.

4. Seeing my hometown friends

I love my college friends, don't get me wrong, but going home to see all of my friends I went to high school with is so special. I love that we've all went separate ways in life but are still able to come back and act like nothing has changed.

5. Spending time with family

My absolute favorite part about going home is spending time with my family. It's nice to be home and laughing like old times with them. There is no better feeling to me. Plus, we usually take a family photo on Thanksgiving and it's always a good time.

Share this if you're as ready for Thanksgiving break as I am. We can get through these next couple of weeks, I know we can! Have a great weekend!!!


  1. Yes I am so prepared for fall break. Although I will be working most of it, I am so excited to see all of my coworkers! T-minus 11 days :)

  2. The memes on this post make everything better. I am so ready for fall break as well.

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

My Dating Profile

I think it's about time I use my blog to find love, don't you think? Last year I wrote about my top tinder tips (I've linked the blog post in case you're just absolutely DYING to go read more about that) and I think another dating app/profile blog post is long overdue. I have had my fair share of editing, critiquing, and looking at dating profiles, and finding out what works and what doesn't, and I figured the best way to tell you is to show you. I'm going to take you on a tour of MY dating profile, well what it would look like if I had one.
