June Reflections + Favorites

June was a long month for me. Compared to May and July, I didn't have a ton planned for June, so it definitely crept by in my opinion. In May, I was finishing up school and moving out and going to Boston and Nashville for various reasons, and then in July, I am going back to Tuscaloosa for a week to work our communications camp and then moving into the Theta house/getting ready for recruitment, whereas; for June, I had exactly one (1) thing planned: going to see Kacey Musgraves Harry Styles in Nashville, which I mean, no other plans can really compare to that.

Rediscovering Personal Style

In high school, I dressed up most of the time, and I think I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted to dress like and what I liked. I wore a lot of chino shorts and dresses and button downs and a whole lot of stripes. I posted my outfits all the time on Tumblr (#ootd), so I know for a fact that I used to put effort into what I wore. But once senior year and senioritis hit, I definitely didn't dress up anymore. Norts and oversized t-shirts became my thing as I perfected my role as a future sorority girl, which obviously followed me into college where I am an actual sorority girl.

2018-2019 Agendas

Honestly, nothing relaxes me more than opening up a new agenda and envisioning all the things written down in it. Something about it just instantly calms me down, and I love looking at my new agenda even though I don't have a ton of use for it in the summer. 

This year I switched things up again, and I got a...Day Designer for Blue Sky! I got mine from Staples, and while it says it is not available in-store, it definitely is, and I am pretty sure it's cheaper in-store. I feel like it was around $30. I knew I wanted a Day Designer this year, but since I had never had one, dropping $60 on a planner seemed like a lot for me, so the Blue Sky one was a perfect compromise. 

I actually like the format of the Blue Sky one a little better because the hours of the day are broken down by 30 minutes rather than just hours, which is super helpful for my classes that start at 3:30 or 6:30. It also doesn't have some of the sections that I knew I wouldn't use like Bills or Dinner, but it does still have the Top 3 and Gratitude sections. I'm actually super excited to go back to school and start writing in my agenda and be able to show y'all how I organize it. 

Today I also wanted to share with y'all some other agenda options that I love!

Growing Up + Swedish Death Cleaning

I want to start this off by saying I am a ridiculous person, and I came home the weekend before exams started and then went back to Tuscaloosa for two and a half days before officially coming home for summer. I know this, but I don't regret my decision one bit because I think one of the first things I told my mom was, "I want to get rid of everything." I felt overwhelmed by the amount of stuff in my childhood bedroom after basically living in my own ~400 square feet for the last eight months. (I lived in a three-person apartment but spent most of my time in my own room.)

This was my closet from my freshman year dorm

Sophomore Year Reflections

I've been back at home for almost a week now, and I am definitely still in denial that my sophomore year of college is over. It is really freaky to me that I am going to be a junior in three months because it honestly feels like just yesterday I was moving into my freshman dorm. Sometimes I think about turning 21, taking my upper division classes, and applying to graduate programs/jobs/internships, and I panic just a little.
