Student Loans…Ugh.

*Feel free to laugh in my face if I ever tell you I’m going to blog consistently.* Can we talk about student loans? Most people I know have them, and whether they owe $5,000 or $50,000 or $150,000, they all feel this burden in their daily lives. Most of the time I joke with people […]

2016: A Year in Review

Like most people, I can agree  with the sentiment that 2016 was a bit of a dumpster fire. I’m not really sad to see it go, but there were also a lot of highlights and memories made that I will cherish forever. Here is my 2016 year in review: -I took trips to Chicago, San […]

52 Books in 52 Weeks

I’ve had a Goodreads account for several years now, but I used to forget about it for months or years at a time. When I’d remember, I’d log on and update my “Books I’ve Read” list with as much as I could remember (and synced it to my Kindle account!), scroll through the newsfeed to […]

Clean out my boxes in the basement – DONE! We moved in August (which contributed to the low mileage displayed above), but since then I’ve taken several very full carloads of stuff to Goodwill! 

Clean out the desk in my room that I never use – DONE! In fact, that desk is in the garage ready to be donated/sold. 

Read 52 books: I’ve read 36 so far this year! 

Use more vacation days: I’m going to Mexico in less than a month, so I’ll be using at least a week then! 

Blog more: HAHA oops.

Actually sort through my pictures from Alaska so I can

As I also mentioned above, I’m going to Mexico next month! My college roommate Elyssa is getting married at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya. I’ve never been to Mexico so I’m looking forward to some pool time, margaritas, and as much chips and guac as I want!

Training Update, and a Belt Review!

Training for my second marathon has been even more all over the place than training for my first. Between a busy summer and some nagging achilles tendinitis, there hasn’t been as much running lately as I’d like.  But, some of the running has been fun and productive!  My first race after running the Pittsburgh Marathon […]
