    SororityTok & Recruitment

    SororityTok, #bamarush, whatever you want to call it has been taking over TikTok. As a sorority alumna, I’m so glad it is. Tiktok is one of the more favorable forms of social media at the moment, and college students are using it to share their lives, dances, and so much more. However, we’ve all noticed how quickly #bamarush took over. We fell in love and those who are sisters in a sorority (even alumnae!) began rooting for their favorites to find their home. I did not go to an SEC school, in fact, I went to one of the smaller schools in Virginia. My chapter was the 6th chapter on…

    Life Update: October 2020

    Hi y’all, I’ve been sitting down yesterday and today making plans for content, but I also wanted to share what’s been going on in my life and why I haven’t been posting as much as I normally want to. I actually ended up filming a Youtube Video and wanted to let ya’ll know to subscribe so that you could be the first to know when I post a new video! I’ll be posting a few school videos this weekend (specifically math related) so be on the lookout for those!). xx, Lindsey Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Youtube | Bloglovin’

    My Brand + Announcement

    Hi y’all, We are seeing an uptick in people having a personal brand because of social media. Myself included. I recently attended a webinar from my sorority about branding and PR for chapters and alumnae associations. However, everything I learned was very applicable to my blog. I did not take marketing classes in college because you had to be in the business school, which I definitely was not. My Communication classes often gave great inside into marketing and I learned so much about social media. They key to social media is that it is always changing. We see the algorithm continuously change on social media (think Instagram). While I am…

    Tips to Finding Happiness

    Hi y’all, If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know I constantly have an ARF (Angry Resting Face). It’s also no secret that upper elementary, middle, and high school were not great times for me. I went to college where hardly anyone from my hometown went to school (and like 5 people including myself from my own high school). I did this on purpose. I know that I’m very fortunate to have two loving and supportive parents, a pretty good family, a great job, and so much more. All of that doesn’t guarantee a person happiness, though. Something I’ve noticed about myself in quarantine is that I…

    Weekly Catch Up 5.16

    Hi y’all, I was thinking of ways that I could create a series and make sure y’all got to see some everyday life. This led me to the Weekly Catch Up. It’s essentially a coffee date, but I don’t drink coffee so I wanted it to be a little more realistic to my authentic life. This week I created my last assignments of the 2019-2020 school year! Wooo. I’m definitely going to miss this group of kids, but I still have them next week for two more read alouds and their virtual promotion ceremony. I’ll also get to see some when do belonging pick up (hopefully in June but could…

    101 in 1001

    Hi y’all, I’ve done a few 101 in 1001 posts, and while I’ve accomplished a lot of things on them, I’ve never finished one. My goal for this one is to finish one, or at least be 90% done. This would mean accomplishing at least 91 items. I’m starting this list on May 15, 2020 and 1001 days is February 10, 2023. If you haven’t heard of one of these lists before, McKenzie Horan from design darling created this a while back. Here’s her latest list. I like to break mine up into different categories just to keep it a little more organized. Career/Grad School Graduate with my M. Ed…

    A Day in the Life: Teacher Edition

    Hi y’all, Today I’m going to share all about a normal day in my life. Today’s post is going up a little bit later than normal. My first day back teaching was today, and the prep for it was basically nonexistent, so I’m a little behind. Anyway my normal teaching day looks like this: 5:30 A.M. Alarm goes off. 5:45 A.M. Alexa goes off. This is when I actually get up. 5:45-6 A.M. I wash my face and eat breakfast. 6-6:20 A.M. Get dressed, do my minimal makeup (literally foundation and mascara), make sure my bag is ready, start my car. 6:20-6:40 A.M. Drive to my friend’s house to meet…

    Top 5 Tips for Balancing Priorities

    Hi y’all, I’ve been a little overwhelmed lately, hence the lack of posts. However, I’m on day 2 of snow days, and feel like I’m in a good spot right now. Even though I’m recovering from some sort of virus/cold thing, I still feel like I’m on top of things. I think one thing I’ve been having trouble with lately is balance. Which is odd because I’m normally so good at this one thing. Here are my top 5 tips for balancing priorities: 1. Write down everything you have to get done. After you’ve written everything down, re-write it in order that it is due/must be done. For instance, my…

    Winter Fun!

    Hi y’all, January is always one of the months that I do not really look forward to. In college, I always wanted to since it meant recruitment for my sorority. However, in the real world; I do not look as forward to it. It’s cold, grey, and non-motivating. In Virginia, the real winter hits in January and February and is typically moving out by March. This means, it’s time to buckle down the hatches for snow, ice, and other gross weather. However, there are still fun things to do in the winter. Here’s a few things for winter fun: 1. Go to the library and grab some books! Especially when…
