10 Things to be Happy About

Hi, Hi, Hi!

Daises! I am so excited today! (Maybe I drank tooo much coffee but still!) SO I don’t know if you guys know but I am absolutely in love with thrifting and my best pieces to pick up at the thrift store are books! Guess what book I was able to pick up for just $1.99?! 14,000 things to be happy about! Did you know that it took Barbara (the author) 20 years to compile this list!

After picking up the book I figured what a great way to start 2017 and list 10 things from this book that have made me happy in the past and see how many of you have had these things happen to them! I think I will be posting 10 things from this book a few times throughout the month. I think it would be pretty cool to look back at the end of the year and see all the happy things that happened. I am so happy I was able to pick this book up because when things get tough or when I get sad I can peek into this book and see all the amazing things to be happy about!

Survived the First Day Back at School After Winter Break!

Survived the First Day Back at School After Winter Break!

Good Morning my beautiful Daisies!

I hope everyone had an amazing and unforgettable New Year! I still find it hard to believe it’s 2017 already and school started once again. Something I did in 2016 was procrastinate alot when it came to school. I was always stressed out and turning in homework last minute. I know that if I would have organized my week better I would have been less stressed out and enjoyed my school experience better. So this year I decided to finally organize and get stuff done on time. Being organized is even more motivating since this quarter is my last quarter in school! It’s kind of hard to believe that in 3 months I will have my business degree!

Today I wanted to share with you guys how I started my first day back to school and work after a 3 week winter break. Going to bed early is something new to me since I am used to going to bed close to 3am! I went to bed early on Monday knowing that I had to be up at 6am. Since I ended up going to bed super early I woke up yesterday pretty early around 4am! I felt nice and refreshed! I had time to make some coffee and eat breakfast and actually do my makeup, compared to last year, I would wake up 2 minutes before I had to be out the door and not eat till 4pm sometimes.

I left the house at 7am since I had to buy a parking pass and I knew that it being the first day back there would be a huuuuge line! I was right I ended up waiting in line for a good 20 minutes! It was 2 degrees outside at 7am and let me tell you I was glad I wore a thick turtleneck sweater underneath my coat! I bought a red bull drink the day before knowing that I would need the extra boost on my first day back!

I had to be at the college at 8am since I am a work study student and had work till 10:15 and then had a 2 hour class right after at 10:30 till 12:30pm. I have been working at the college library as a work study student for about a year and a half now and I LOVE IT! I love meeting new people at the college since I am mostly at the circulation desk checking books or laptops out and shelving once in a while. When I clocked into work at 8 am I spend the next 2 hours of my shift shelving books, since we were on break for the past 3 weeks, there were a lot of books that were returned on the last day of class. After shelving I had a little time before class started to water our plants at the library.

I am taking 3 classes this quarter. I am taking Fundamentals of Advertising, Social Media Marketing, and Micro Economics. For Fundamentals of Advertising our teacher said for our final project we are going to choose a small business and design a advertising campaign for their company. I am nervous but excited at the same time because I know this will come in handy when I will be working on opening my business in the next 6 months.

After the 2 hour class I meet up with my cousin at Panda Express for some lunch and then we headed to our favorite coffee shop, Vessel Coffee, I talked about it here if you are interested.

 

After enjoying our coffee’s we popped into an antique store next door and browsed around. We found some ooooooold books! They were sooo cool! I wish I owned ALL of them!

I ended the day by going to the gym and doing 30 minutes of cardio on the treadmill and did a few weight machines that focused on quads, hamstrings, and glutes. I woke up today really sore! Loving the feeling of finally being back at the gym.

I am sorry if this post was loong but I wanted to get in how I totally changed my routine from last year and feeling more confident in everything! With my schedule being more organized I am hoping to keep on blogging into this new year! 2017 is going to be spectacular I can feel it! Hope you lovelies will have an incredible Wednesday today and I am off to get ready for work! Love you guys sooo much! ❤
