spring has sprung!

  

Hey guys! 

 The weather’s getting warmer, the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping (even at 11 p.m. when you’re trying to sleep, apparently…) — all of these are signs that yes, spring is here!

Spring is probably my favorite season. Here in Texas, the weather around March and April is gorgeous — not too cold, not too hot. I don’t spend a lot of time outdoors (there are BUGS out there, gross), but when it’s this nice out, I actually want to go take a hike or stroll around campus. 

 But although it feels great outside, things don’t feel so great inside the classroom. With spring comes the arrival of midterms and quizzes and projects — we’re halfway through the semester and things are starting to ramp up.

I’m no studying expert — I have problems with procrastination that I’m still trying to work on. But here are some tips that have helped me stay more organized, and they might help you, too:

I felt obligated to take a Snapchat selfie to commemorate this occasion.

 

As of today, Friday, February 6, 2015, I am 20 years old. It’s not like I feel any different, and it’s not like 20 is a milestone age. As far as I know, the law doesn’t confer any new privileges to twenty-year-olds. (Now, 21 is a different story… 😉 ) But I guess 20 is significant in that it represents a new decade of life. Thinking about the fact that I’ve been alive for two whole decades is a little strange. Things were a lot different 20 years ago. Continue reading

allow me to introduce myself…

Hey guys!

My name is Alexa, and I’m currently a sophomore in college studying public relations. I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a personal blog for quite some time, and now I’ve finally decided to do it! Although I’ve had a Tumblr account for almost 5 years, most of my personal posts are buried under numerous TV show gifs and random pictures. I wanted to start a blog on a platform where I could gather my thoughts in a more organized way and perhaps sharpen my writing skills in the process.

Additionally, this year marks a bit of a milestone for me — I’ll be turning 20 years old in February! (Two decades old. What a weird feeling. And yes, I know the feeling only gets worse from here.) So I guess I also want this blog to serve as a sort of time capsule for me to look back on when I’m older. I get that I’m approaching what’s sure to be a transitional period in my life, and I want to use this blog to chronicle it.

Although I don’t really have a set format for what I’ll post or how often I’ll post, I figure I’ll just write about what interests me – anything from entertainment to sports to pop culture to fashion to current events. For now, I’ll just sit back, relax, and see where this takes me.

Here we go!
