    Amazon for Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s Day is coming up! While I typically don’t do much for the holiday (I blame this on being single), I do like looking around and browsing for fun decorations and ways to celebrate! I will say I am usually quite the grinch about Valentine’s Day. Plus, I do love any excuse to shop! One of the usual perks of being a teacher is decorating for holidays. However, this year, I’m not planning on doing anything for Valentine’s. It’s hard to decorate with COVID, since soft surfaces can capture the germs. I’ve really tried to minimize the soft surfaces in my room this year. Likewise, I made this keeping in…

    Why I Could Never go on The Bachelor

    Hi y’all, Okay, it happened. I got dragged into the drama of this season of the Bachelorette. Honestly, Clare, I don’t know what you’re thinking. Obviously, she knows her own feelings; however, I really do not think you could have such strong feelings after two weeks. Especially if you hadn’t talked to them before as they’re claiming. I am very excited for Tayshia though. I truly liked her on Bachelor in Paradise. I definitely thought JPJ could be too immature for her, so I wasn’t too shocked when that relationship ended. I will say JPJ seemed to step up though. Anyway, I digress on my thoughts about the current season…

    What I Want in a Future Home

    Hi y’all, Happy August! I’ve been super busy finishing up my summer term classes and then cleaning up my brother’s old room to make it into my office. My school district announced in mid-July that we would have in person classes 5 days a week for elementary school. Both my parents are high risk and we thought the best option at the time was for me to start looking at buying a house. While this was a great opportunity for me to see what I liked and didn’t like in a future home, it ended up not being the best option for me at this moment in time (but I…

    The Fashion Industry & Bankruptcy

    Hi y’all, We are continuously seeing companies, especially in the fashion industry, declare some form of bankruptcy. However, what no one seems to be considering is that these companies were already struggling prior to the recession caused by COVID-19. J.Crew was definitely already struggling, mostly due to a buyout. However, from a shoppers perspective, clothes there are expensive, that you can buy at J. Crew Factory or J. Crew Mercantile for a fraction of the price. Plus, there is always a sale, so why buy anything full price? J.C. Penny was also already struggling, along with Neiman Marcus. Pier 1 has actually been in the process for a while of…

    30 Days of Blogging

    Hi y’all, Well, it’s officially day 30 of blogging every day for a month. Y’all, I’m so glad that I challenged myself to put out 30 posts. It was definitely helpful in learning more about myself and more about some of the parts of blogging that I often forget are just as important as the actual post. I started this challenge with My 5 Year Plan, wrote multiple book posts, gave a fitness update, and shared a 101 in 1001 update. First, I definitely learned that it gets tough to put out posts every day for 30 days. I know that I used some of these days to post more…

    Would You Rather?

    Hey y’all, I wanted to do a fun post for y’all today, so I decided to do some would you rather questions. I simply googled some to find different ones. Would you rather be gossiped about or never talked about? Easy. Never talked about. Would you rather be hairy all over or bald? Hairy all over. You can fix that easily. Would you rather be happy for 8 hours a day or poor, sad, and rich for 8 hours a day? I’d rather be happy. Would you rather be invisible or able to read minds? Oh this is a tough one! I think I would prefer to be able to…

    A Local’s Guide to Charlottesville

    Hi y’all, I’m so excited to be sharing this with y’all today! As you may know, I was born and raised in Charlottesville and I’m lucky enough to still call it home today. I also realize that people can have a negative opinion or think they know Charlottesville from what they’ve seen on the news. Charlottesville is definitely not what is being constantly portrayed in the media, and I want y’all to see the Charlottesville I know and love. There are several different “neighborhoods” so to speak that make up Charlottesville and the surrounding county, Albemarle. I broke it up a little bit to share with you my favorite places…

    My Relationship with God & Religion

    Hi y’all, As I mentioned yesterday, since I’m blogging every day this month, I want to share some more personal posts. This post is very personal and definitely goes into more about me as a person. Today’s post is about my relationship with God. This is not something that I normally talk about with other people, I hold this relationship very close to the heart. I am not here to tell you what you should believe in or not believe in. I’m here to share my experiences and story with you. Yes, I grew up in a Christian household. I celebrate Easter, Christmas, and all the other traditional Christian holidays.…
