Friday Thoughts 3/17/17

March 17, 2017 in About Me / College

Happy Friday friends!! I hope you have all been having a good week so far. Going to be sharing some thoughts and randomness from this week so let’s get started. 🙂

-> I’ve been loving writing over at!! If you know me, you know how much I love writing. So when I saw this opportunity I snatched it asap. Check out my recent post here 🙂

-> I’m so tired of cold weather. And snow. This is really making me think of where the heck I want to live when I’m older, because cold and me just don’t get along like we used to.

-> But with the snow, I did have a snow day Tuesday which was nice. I needed some time to decompress which I took full advantage of.

-> I bought this poster for my room and I’m super pumped about it.

Be Here Now, mindfulness meditation poster print

-> I also bought a little Buddha for my room because I really love him and the whole message behind it.

Sakyamuni Buddha Earth Touching Mudra Statue Marble Style .. Rare to Find

-> I wore jeans for the first time in like forever Wednesday. Plot twist: made it through the day alive without leggings or yoga pants.

->I have a yogurt everyday I feel like. I love my yogurts. I think after not having any last week I realized  how much of a staple they are in my diet. Also #teamsiggis. Anyone else??

->I’m hosting a giveaway over on Instagram. So if you want to win 4 jars of peanut butter go over and enter before Monday!!


-> I bought a pair of black converse from TJ Maxx yesterday and I’m super stoked about it because they were wayyyy cheaper than normal. And I love converse. My white high tops are my babies.

->I spent time to actually paint my nails, but they chipped within two days. #gome

->Thursday was a pretty stressful day with normal college/life things but I got through it. Always a reminder to me of those amazing people in my life who are there for me when things aren’t perfect. So dang grateful for them.

->My two bff’s from home are visiting me tonight. I am so excited. Perfect timing to see them, and it’s St Patty’s day. 🙂

->I sprained my toe last week on my service trip and it still feels pretty freakin’ weird so my two toes are currently taped together.

->I’ve been listening to so much music lately. Nahko and Medicine for the People has my heart. So does Trevor Hall. Such baes.

->I’ve been so bad at replying to blog comments. (Sorry friends!!) Definitely something I want to work on.

I think that’s it for all the thoughts on my brain this Friday morning.

Now tell me: 

Warm or cold weather? Or do you like a mix of both? 

Converse fan??

Any St. Patty’s day plans? 

Have a lovely weekend friends!! Sending all the love. <3

    Lyss that’s so awesome you are writing for that website!! The world needs more of your talent with writing as well as your words on mental health and self love. Now I’m checking out more of that website… looks like a wonderful resource.
    Quick thoughts: Love the poster. HATE the weather. I haven’t survived a day without sweat pants in literally years. I love Nahko and Medicine for the People. Finally… hope you are having fun with your friends!

    I’m kinda looking forward to the cooler weather coming our way. I HATE humidity and we have had a lot of that recently.
    Story of my life with the nail polish! It’s always chipping.

      It is always chipping. That’s why I hardly paint my nails lol

    I always go back and forth on what type of climate I want to live in. I love warm weather and not having to deal with snow but I also can’t stand when it gets too hot. I wish I could live in Michigan during the summer and the south in the winter. 😉 also I feel you on the jeans. I can’t remember the last time I wore jeans to class lol. Yoga pants/sweats all the way.

    p.s. love your article on gofitu!

    • Reply Alyssa March 27, 2017 at 2:58 am

      Yoga pants and sweats all the way for sure hehe. Thank you for reading the article too!

    I avoid wearing jeans so hard! I prefer basically anything else.
    I too have been bad with replying to comments. I’ve just been so scattered brained!
    Also, I used to have a pair of green converses that I loved!! I would like to find a pair to wear again.

    Ouch! A sprained toe sounds really painful!

    I am DEFINITELY a warm weather girl. I hate winter and gloomy days so much and I swear I have S.A.D because I turn into a hibernating grumpy bear in the winter months 😛
