Thinking out Loud 1/28/16: Laugh at Yourself

January 28, 2016 in College

Hi guys and happy Thursday! One more day till Friday, YAYYYY <3

Anyways, going to be doing a lighter thinking out loud post today on just learning to laugh at yourself and some randomness from this past week. Be prepared for some great pics friends. Also, thanks Amanda for letting me share my thoughts this Thursday. 🙂


As I’m almost done with my second week of my second semester of college, I just learned to laugh at myself to get through. Because if you take life too seriously, at least for me; it just isn’t going to be that fun. This past week has consisted of schoolwork, a new babysitting job I got every Fridays, a party, a snowstorm, working out, spending time with friends, eating, drinking coffee, showering; ya know, the whole shebang. So I thought I’d share some funny moments/pictures/randomness with you all and maybe give you a good laugh along the way. Because I am a firm believer in laughing through the stressful times.


Shannon wanted a hug… but clearly I wasn’t havin it. Gotta check the Insta first I guess?!?


But then we DID get a cute pic, and of course I hugged her since I love her tons and tons.


My friend Gab took this picture… hey guys, it’s me!! (Just like that Adele song) :]

Took some polaroids with Gab and my friend Tanner, and they came out SUPER cute 🙂


It snowed quite a bit, but least it was really pretty 🙂


Clearly me and my friends were being pretty loud in the dining hall. Got the Snapchat shoutout to calm down… lol.

This pic of me tho… add me on Snapchat @alyyssa1129 for more of these gems.

Another gem while walking home from class.


And part 3 of my beautiful Snapchat gems. Double chin game STRONG.


And just a random picture of coffee, because coffee has been saving my life. Coffee will always save my life. Period. And peanut butter-that too.

I hope you all learn to laugh at yourself. Don’t be so hard on yourself. If you run into a wall, you run into a wall. Laugh, shake it off. Smile at the funny selfies you take. Life’s too short to not get in a good chuckle every day. 

Now tell me: 

Do you like/use Snapchat?! 

What’s something that’s making you laugh this week? 

Hope you all have a great Thursday. Thank you for reading! 🙂

      I always laugh at my dog too, dogs do the funniest things haha. And snapchat is the best, definitely a good way to communicate and send funny pics at the same time 🙂

    You are such a cutie!! And I love the belly button ring. Looks great on you! I actually don’t have Snapchat. I had it briefly and it stressed me out just constantly getting pictures and taking them all day! Instagram is more than enough for me haha maybe that makes me an old lady 😉

    This is so great. I love snapchat! Those double chin shots were amazing. I laughed at myself this week when I tried to unlock someone else’s car that I thought was mine. I couldn’t undertstand why the key wouldn’t work. 😛

    I love snapchat, I use way too often! Great post, it’s short but it definitely has a good message! Laughing at ourselves is so important, it allows us to take life less seriously :).

    I just can’t deal with one more social media, so no snapchat for me. It seems fun, though!
    I am definitely a fan of laughing at myself, though. You can’t take yourself too seriously.

    • Reply Alyssa January 29, 2016 at 4:15 am

      Haha I feel you with the social media thing! And so true-you can’t take yourself too seriously!
