4 Easy Tasks To Start Your Day Off Great

4 Easy Tasks To Start Your Day Off Great

Don't we all love good days?


Some days I feel on top of the world and some I feel like I am carrying it on my shoulders. These are some things tasks that I do each day to start it off on the right foot :)

1. Wake up early

I know how much of a struggle this can be, especially on those 8 AM mornings. But trust me, this is so beneficial. When you wake up early, concentration and productivity increase. This means that snoozing to get some extra Z's might not help you in the long run.

With extra time in the morning, you can make a cup of coffee or workout without feeling rushed. When I wake up early, I feel better about the approaching day and it helps me get prepared for my day full of classes.

2. Wash your face

This is the best thing to do in the morning. Your pillowcase holds a lot of germs and dead skin, so this helps wash it away. For those with oily skin, it helps prevent excess oil production. Plus, it wakes you up even more!

3. Plan out your day/week

In the mornings, I write down all the tasks that need to be completed within the day or even the whole week. When I am really feeling overwhelmed, I like to write a detailed plan of my day, including blocks of time when I am doing something. This helps me digest the incoming day and helps me schedule blocks so that I am not so swamped.

4. Wear a cute outfit

A girl with a bomb outfit can seize the day. When I really want to feel my best, I make sure I look my best. This includes a super cute outfit and *slight* makeup for me. When I take time and don't rush to get ready in the morning, it really makes my self confidence rise.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
