I have always dreaded working out. I believe it started in 4th grade when I found out we would have to run the mile as part of our training for the presidential test, that requirement of how fast you needed to run/how many sit ups you needed to be able to do, and so on. I think part of why I had this strong dislike for it all was that I was never any good at it. Without getting too into it, growing up in a naturally competitive school environment was not the best for me, and so having to partake in an activity I did not feel confident in, in front of all my classmates, led me to feel like a failure at times and be really hard on myself.
Los Angeles is a city full of tourist attractions, most of which those who live in Los Angeles never bother with unless entertaining friends who are visiting. It’s similar to that of a New Yorker and their relationship with Times Square or if you asked someone who lives in San Francisco how often they find themselves walking across the Golden Gate Bridge. There are simply things in big cities that people from across the world fly out just to do, but someone who’s lived there for years has never even experienced.
Incase you didn’t know, because as if I don’t talk about it enough, this summer I moved to London for a month to take part in a Study Abroad program. It was easily one of the best decisions I’ve made. While there, I adopted some new habits that I’ve been able to keep with me since I came home that I thought I’d share with you.
I don't know about you, but for me when it comes to my music and organizing it into playlist I tend to do them by month or season based off of artists latest singles or just hearing songs for the first time and becoming obsessed. Being a visual person, I've recently started Bullet Journaling and have been trying to have it be a mix of both my planner as well as a visual diary of each month, things I tried, movies I enjoyed, food I became obsessed with, etc. So with that I decided to create a page dedicated to my summer playlist. Being a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my Bullet Journal, I wanted to make it look as visually pleasing as possible and I think it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. So because of that I thought it would be fun to share it with you all, as well as give you all a little insight to my music taste (It's generic Pop and Musicals, no surprises there). Anyways, below is the image as well as a link to the playlist on Youtube. Enjoy!
I think it's interesting how a person's lockscreen or wallpaper for their phone can say a lot about them. They're kind of like a modern locket. For me, my lockscreen for the past 3 years has been a screenshot of the comment Taylor Swift left on my instagram. My homescreen has had some changes. For a while it was a rotation of photos of myself and friends, then I got into the Pinterest craze of finding a cute backdrop to feel "inspired", and then before I left for London it was a rainy window looking at Big Ben as it was something to look forward to. While I was living in London I was constantly taking photos of the scenery around me. I ended up with a lot of photos and wanted to return the favor of sharing some ready to go Wallpapers for anyone who wants them.
Hello it's me. The designated single of every friend group. Is that a title I've given myself? Yes. Is it still true? Unfortunately Yes.
Typically being single around the Holidays, especially Valentine's Day is bummerville for those of us without a significant other, but it does not have to be. Here are some ideas to spend your day either by yourself or with some friends in the same boat as you.
My Roommate Amanda and I love Taylor Swift. It was a huge part of why we knew we would last as roommates. 1989 came out as we were apartment hunting and we got the keys to our place on Taylor's 25th Birthday. For my 22nd Birthday her and my friend Reza hosted a surprise Party for me and played "22" as I entered and bought a Swan Floatie so we could recreate some Taylor-esque pics. The first time I ever got to see Taylor perform live was when she closed down Hollywood Blvd to perform on Jimmy Kimmel, I won tickets and naturally took Amanda.
