A Rewind of my Blog

We've made it, folks. The very last blog post of the semester. 15 weeks, 42 blog posts, 101 comments, 2,841 views,  and countless memories later, we've reached the end. This might not be a big deal to anyone else, but it is to me. Fifteen weeks ago I had little hope for this blog, I'll be honest. It was all so new to me, and it seemed completely impossible to write over 40 unique blog posts that would captivate my audience. I could go on and on, but I'll spare you. I thought for a wrap-up of the whole semester we could do a rewind and relive some of the best moments I've had on this blog.

1. My very first post, introducing myself as a lover of pizza and Tori Kelly. Fifteen weeks later and that is still completely accurate.

2. That time I gave you my most sincere Tinder tips.

3. When I explained my favorite parts of being in Greek Life.

4. The time I interviewed my Japanese friend Shiori for a podcast and she taught me how to speak some Japanese. I've completely forgot everything I've learned. 

5. I took you through my most favorite and least favorite parts about this polar bear palace we call ONU.

6. When I Googled some sketchy phrases and absolutely regretted everything. 

7. I broke down a few notable types of professors/teachers that everyone has had at least once in their life.

8. I taught you how many Kylie Lip Kits and Chipotle bowls you can purchase with $20,000.

9. I live tweeted the ONU Homecoming parade.

10. I literally shot and edited a video teaching you how to do the hard-whip and actually uploaded it to YouTube. It has over 130 views and I regret nothing. 

11. Introduced you to my new favorite band Us the Duo and one of their songs. 

12. Talked about my all-time favorite artist, Tori Kelly.

13. Told you what I was thankful for regarding social media.

14. Showed my favorite pictures from a photo shoot I did with friends over Thanksgiving break.

15. Took you through some of 2016's best internet memes.

AND NOW WE'RE HERE! It wasn't always easy and it wasn't always fun, but in the end I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm extremely proud of myself. I cannot thank you enough for supporting me throughout this whole semester. Every view, every comment, every tweet, it means the world to me. If you do enjoy my blogs you'll be happy to know I'm going to continue blogging next semester! I'll be taking a little hiatus during the holiday break so I can recollect and relax, but I'll be back come spring semester. Thank you always for the support, see you next month.


  1. I really enjoyed reading your blog. I found myself wondering what you would write about next and look forward to finding out. I'm glad you're going to continue in the spring. Thank you for making me laugh,and learn new things.

  2. Hooray, Sierra! I've enjoyed reading. Enjoy your break.

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.
