"Only got $20 in my pocket"

'I'm Gonna Pop Some Tags'

Instead of taking a trip over spring break, I decided to go home and spend some much needed time with my family & friends and it was honestly so enjoyable. School has been chaotic and hectic and a break with nothing to do was perfect.

One day over the break I went and visited a friend who goes to college in Tifton, Georgia. This sweet pal of mine is loves thrifting as much as I do so we always venture out unique little stores all over the place. That's how we decided to spend our day together. I am unashamedly obsessed with thrift shopping. You can honestly find some real gems for so super cheap.

Before our epic day of thrifting began, we first stopped by this great coffee shop because coffee = happiness. Side note, if you're ever in Tifton, stop by Espresso 41. It's an old gas station that was renovated into the cutest little shop and they have the friendliest people with the best atmosphere.

Anyway, after out coffee stop, we went to four different thrift stores. The first one has daily "color sales". Whatever the color for the day is, any item of that color is $1. When we went, the colors were blue & black so all the clothes we got that were blue and black were only a dollar. *cue the happy dance*

2 out of the 4 had brand new clothes from big stores like Target. They buy big cardboard boxes of clothes that either go unsold or get returned then they turn around and sell the items for $2 or $3. One of the stores had around 15 brand new expresso machines for like $50.

The other one we went to had 4 racks of $1 sale items. Like, who could pass up anything for a dollar.

By the end, the most expensive thing I bought was $5 and it was a brand new pair of shoes. Total, I spent $37.85 and got:

2 pair of shoes, 2 sweaters, a cardigan, 3 dresses, 2 skirts, 8 shirts, and 2 pair of shoes.

So big shoutout to Tifton for the best thrift stores and the cutest coffee shops.

If you're ever looking for an adventure, or want to find cool clothes, or just have time to kill, go thrift shopping. It's honestly so fun and you can find some super great suff. And if you ever need someone to tag along, I'm always down.

Happy week after spring break and happy thrifting!!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
