February Things + The Perfect Days

Hello, blog. Do you remember me? I know. I know. I promised that 2019 would be different. I said that I would be more present — and I kind of kept that promise. I have been being more present in my daily life. Doing what I want on my own terms. Making decisions that make […]

2018 Things

Happy New Year, I guess. We are two weeks into 2019, and I am just now writing about 2018. This post has taken a while to write, but I have been living my life to the fullest; exploring my neighborhood, visiting old friends, creating colorful memories, and indulging in too much chocolate. The biggest lesson […]

Summer Adventures

Summer has continued to fly by — as usual. My summer life has been different than all the summers I have ever experienced. In the past, summer was a time for me to sleep in, watch movies all day, and dawdle around my home. This summer, however, has me waking up early every morning, dressing […]

Summer Things {Part 1}

Summertime. A fun time. A great time. A time that somehow continues to slip by. I am currently sitting outside of the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, Texas (my favorite study spot). A year ago, you could find me sitting on my couch in the DFW area. Oh, how things have changed. This summer […]

First-Year of College In Review

It’s over. What? I just finished my first-year of college. What an experience; there have been ups and downs, happiness and sadness, and laughter and silence.

January Things

I cannot believe that we are already in the month of February. Times flies when you’re having fun spending every waking minute reading your textbook, right? 😉 This month has been exciting and kind of blue. I love college, but coming back to Austin after winter break was so incredibly hard. I was so used […]

2017 Things

2017 is over. Wow. What a year. This year has been marked by assault, natural disasters, volatile political spheres, immense change — in my life and in the world. For me, this year, has been the most significant yet. Not only did I graduate high school, begin college, turn 18 — but I was aware. […]

First Semester in Review {Fall 2017}

I just finished my first semester of college! What? I could swear I just graduated from kindergarten. But, no. I just finished my very first semester of college in a new city, around new people, with new classes. All of the “newness” required an adjustment. I survived; I am alive. I wanted to write about […]

Thanksgiving 2017

Hi friends! Do you notice anything different? Nothing. Wow. I changed the whole design of the blog! I have had the same pink/purple theme since 2014, and so I decided it was time to clean stuff up and make SOS more “me.” It’s still a work in progress, but I love this clean look. This […]
