valentines day 2020 thanks to the help of amazon student!

Soooo if you didn't see my big "secret project" over on my Instagram story last week, let me inform you all over here! I was recently given the opportunity to be a Campus Manager for Amazon Prime Student at Florida Atlantic University for this semester! This whole experience still seems very surreal that I get to work alongside one of the biggest companies here at my school! Now that the secret is out of the bag, I can't wait to share with you all where this journey takes me and obviously you all will be right along my side the whole way through!

Now that I got that off of my chest, we all are *hopefully* aware that Valentines day is only just a few days away. Not to be all lame or anything over here but this is my first Valentines day in a while that I'm single. A lot of people may be sad or even uncomfortable at the fact that they don't have a significant other to share the holiday with, but i'm using this day as a chance to share more love to myself as well as the ones in this life that always express love to me on a daily basis. After all, this "day of love" should be way more than just expressing it to one person, but to pour out to all of those who make you feel like the best version of yourself each and every day! Speaking of showing yourself some love this Valentines day, Prime Student made it easier than ever before for myself to indulge in a little bit of self care. Down below I liked my guide for all the essentials you will need to give yourself a little TLC this holiday!

So go ahead, watch your all time favorite romcom, call your girlfriends, crack open your favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry's, because after all you deserve it!

life update 2.3.20!

Sitting here on my couch this oddly chilling south Florida morning while sipping my freshly brewed canned coffee (s/o to Starbucks double shot espresso lol), I thought it would be a good time to chat with you all. Let's cut right to the chase. I started my spring semester only 3 weeks ago and life is kinda hitting me like a bus already, but I did see this coming. Clearly, I’m being over the top (I mean, when am I not) but this semester I have so many new responsibilities that I know must get done that require a lot more attention compared to stuff in the past. This spring semester I am taking honestly the ugliest classes that I’ve never in a million years fathomed I’d have to take. In order to me to move forward and get to the excited courses that pertain to my major, I have to go through hell and back to get to the fun classes. Trust me, there is no way of getting out of these hellish classes, I’ve tried. I just keep reminding myself that this is only temporary, I know when the end will be, just gotta keep trucking on, I can do it. On top of my heavy course load this semester I have a really major ~sEcRet pRoJecT~ in store that I obviously can’t wait to share with you all the details regarding it! Oh yeah, not to mention, in addition to these new eveners, I am still trying to land a summer internship, workout, have a great time with my friends, working, creating content for the blog and trying to balance being sane in between.

I think I mentioned it before, but as I’ve grown up, I have realized that their truly isn’t enough time in a day to get everything done. I always relate back to that photo of the triangle titled “choose one” and each side of it is either sleep, a social life, or good grades. Majorly corny, but I always think to myself, why can't I strive to balance it all? Who said I can only choose too?! I wanna challenge that motif for this semester. Sure, I might have to wake earlier but if that’s what it takes than so be it! My biggest inspiration & motivation when it comes to finding the balance between everything is vlogger Danielle Carolan. I legit have no reason to complain of having “too much to do” when this girl is almost in the same position and is such a go getter, her work ethic is seriously aspirational! A full time student, as well as being apart of Greek life and still managing  to do what she loves as well as other hobbies reassures me that as long as if I have a good mentality, I can get stuff done!! Another tidbit I always reflect on to keep myself motivated even when I seem extremely overwhelmed is oddly a quote from the office that I think about a lot. If any of you are office fanatics like I am, you might be able to pick up on the reference. To quote the most "Powerful Woman of Tallahassee" Jo Bennett, "If you had to sign your name on today, would you be proud of the work that you did." Let that sink in.

In other news, I’m really excited for this semester especially now that I’ve settled into my own for my sorority. No more new member obligations or being confused of what this ~whole process really is.~ there is so many exciting memories and things I have in store that I can’t wait to share with you all! OH HOW CAN I FORGET! My golden birthday is coming up this month, I turn 21 on the 21st of February! Obviously i'm beyond excited for this day and I can't wait to have my waltz as well as go on a little vacay for the occasion! Alright well, I promise I’ll chat soon, gotta run! (But for real I actually have to go workout lol.) xoxo.
