Foggy Brain Friday + Some Random Thoughts

March 31, 2017 in About Me / College

Hi guys and happy Friday! I hope you all have been having a lovely week so far. School has been super busy lately and I feel as if I’ve been inactive on this blog/Instagram. I’m trying to keep up with posting two times a week just because I LOVE to write and connect with all of you, and blogging is truly fun for me. I’ll be home for Easter in a little less than two weeks too which will be super nice.

I have a ton of assignments due Tuesday and a whole bunch of studying to do this weekend. As I sit here at 10:47 p.m. this fine Thursday night and am feeling pretty caffeinated (hello 8:30 p.m. iced coffee), I am doing my best to keep a peaceful state of mind and be here now. Mindfulness is tough for me, so I’m really trying to work on that.

I guess I titled this foggy brain Friday because I really don’t have it in me to throw a bunch of inspiration at you right now, so I thought I’d just give you an inside scoop of what’s going on in my head (oooo is it a fun place in there sometimes- lol).

  • Friday I plan on working out, doing some work at the library in the morning, going to a meeting, going to class, volunteering at Best Buddies, napping (?), and at night going to a concert at my school. DRAM and Charlie XCX are playing! Can’t wait to spend the night with my friends too.
  • Life’s been testing me lately with what I prioritize. Sometimes I’m just like, “Oh yeah, I can hang out with that person grab lunch with this person and study a 15 page study guide and then write 2 articles for this website and talk to all my friends from home!!” But then the rational side of me is like woah there tiger take a step back. You’re not superwoman your just a 20 year old college student. I always need to remember to keep my priorities in check.
  • My nana’s not doing too hot right now so if y’all could pray for her and send some good energy that would mean the world to me& my fam. <3
  • On a more happy note, I documented my favorite choker the other day and my new bralette made the pic. I felt super artsy taking this lol. vsco_033017
  • I applied to be a service trip leader for my college! Who knows if I get it, but thought I might as well take a chance and apply!
  • I squatted 125 lbs on Tuesday which is a new PR for me. 🙂
  • I didn’t really take a whole lot of pics of my food this week. But hmmm. Some yummy things I ate: a Lenny&Larry’s cookie, a carob chip + an almond butter Perfect Bar, Cinnamon Chex cereal with almond milk! Some yummy things I drank: iced coffee with caramel and soy milk, cold brew from Dunkin, iced passion tea mixed with green tea, hot chai tea latte with soy milk, and kombucha! Photo on 3-15-17 at 2.39 PM.jpg
  • I’ve been using PhotoBooth more often lately. Oops. And somehow these beauties always get sent to my mama. I know she loves them though.

That’s it for today friends. Thanks for reading all the fun thoughts in my head and always just being so dang awesome. I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and a lovely weekend!!

Now tell me: 

Are you fan of chokers? 

Favorite drink as of late? 

Any fun weekend plans? 

Have a good one loves!

    I LOVE Chex cereal; and I love Photo Booth; it’s so fun, and it makes me not care about my ‘body image’ at all.

    Also, I know what you mean about wanting to do it all; I loved what you said on the podcast interview about learning to prioritize. It really got me thinking.

    Whoops… I didn’t answer any of your questions.

    So I don’t really wear necklaces or chokers, because i usually find myself taking them off and on and then I lose them. O_O

    My favorite drink lately has been those Bai drinks or Vitamin Waters. I like sweet drinks. 😀

    You are the queen of caffeinated drinks! 😛 So much variety there! My plans for this weekend include nothing as of yet and I am totally okay with that… I am planning on trying a totally unplugged day on Sunday for the first day in a while so we’ll see how that goes haha. Praying for your grandma <3 and I hope you have a fabulous weekend! 🙂

    Only write when you want to! When you’re busy, it’s all about your mental health, and nothing more! I hope you had a productive Friday. Enjoy the concert tonight!

    Praying for your nana and your family, beautiful! It’s so hard when a family member is going through a rough time!

    I haven’t even tried the choker trend yet so I don’t know how I feel about them on me, haha!
