Hi guys and happy Thursday!! How have your weeks been?? I’m thankful to have had Monday off of classes, and I don’t have class Friday’s so it’s not too bad of a week for me! Anyways, going to be linking up with Amanda to think out loud for you guys today and give you a little update in my world!
This semester I’m taking 5 classes. 3 of which are intertwined and are part of a learning community which is a requirement for my college. My learning community is making a magazine, and within that I am taking science and belief, big questions and the media, and then the final class-making the magazine! I am with my best friend in that which is so awesome. We meet Monday’s and Wednesdays from 1:00-5:15 which is long, but we have a 15 minute break between each class which is nice!
I am also taking sociology which I am excited for, as I am thinking about minoring in that. It is just an intro class so I can get a feel for it and the subject. Sociology is on Monday’s and Wednesday’s too from 6:00-7:15. (So my Monday’s and Wednesday’s are nonstop to say the least… lol)
I am taking a developmental psych class too which already seems super interesting. The professor seems awesome and the material itself is something that sparks my interest. This class is on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 10:00-11:15!
I’m on the board for two clubs this year. I’m the VP for Autism Speaks and the secretary for a club called Health at the Hill! I am also part of the Psych Society and a club called Food Truth which works to bring more local food and produce onto our campus. 🙂 I am excited to be on the board for two clubs this year and have those leadership positions and to be part of the other clubs as well!
I typically workout in the morning before my classes around 7. My neighbor Brody and I go together because she’s an early bird as well. I love the mornings and starting my day off with a workout. It’s like my little me time and I cherish it so much!
Another fitness update is that I am going to be part of the social squad for Go Fit U! I am so excited for this and to be part of this awesome group. Basically I’ll just be posting on Instagram about my workouts, why working out should be something that is FUN, and all that good stuff. 🙂
I’m on a meal plan at school, so I am part of that dining hall club. Mine isn’t awful. Obviously not gourmet, but it does the job! I like the salad bar, deli, sweet potatoes, grilled chicken, mashed cauliflower, tofu, pb&j’s, sushi, soup, and probably more stuff I’m forgetting. I usually eat breakfast in my room, so something like oatmeal with fruit + nut butter, peanut butter and banana on bread with fruit, cereal with banana and yogurt, Bobo’s oat bars with yogurt and fruit, etc. I also have soup, quinoa, couscous, sweet potatoes, and noodles for when I want to have lunch/dinner in my room too! And ingredients for smoothies because I brought my blender this year. 🙂
I have lots of snacks in my room too like fruit, nuts, bars (kind, no cow bars, cliff bars, square bars, vega, etc.), sweet potato chips, tortilla chips, snackimals, Lenny&Larry’s cookies…. and more!

I see my friends for breakfast/lunch/dinner dates throughout the week and I’m always with them during the weekend whether that may be working out together, doing homework, shopping, getting coffee, or going out! Finding a balance with my social life is important to me, and surrounding myself with others that lift me up and make me smile is really essential for my mental health.

I pray throughout the day, read my daily verse, and try and keep up with my She Reads Truth reading plans. I go to church once a week as well. 🙂
That’s it for this little update! I love reading these types of posts so I am going to try and do more little updates throughout the month. 🙂
Now tell me:
Are you a morning person?
What’s your favorite thing to do with your friends? (I loveee coffee dates!!)
Have a happy Thursday friends!! Sending alllll my love to you! <3
