Don’t hate me for breaking this to you but: Finals are coming up and there is nowhere to hide. They are approaching swiftly, ready or not.

I’ve gotten to the point in blogging where I’m getting a lot of emails from other bloggers asking for advice (which I absolutely love, keep ’em coming!)

My roommate and I have finally gotten an ideal setup for the furniture in our room, but during the rearranging, all of the wall decor got torn down, so we were able to start fresh.

Making this blog has been one of the most rewarding decisions of my life and among one of the things that I am most proud of. Watching it grow and joining the amazing community of bloggers I have found has changed my perspective on everything. I can’t describe the feeling of setting goals and blowing them out of the water. If you haven’t thought about it already, I highly recommend starting a blog, whether it be a free blogspot, or a very official self-hosted wordpress. The Indie Chicks (a super cool site that you should totally check out!) is challenging bloggers to… View Post
