It’s been a long time

So I’m already over half way through with the first semester of my sophomore year of college. School started the first week in September and I have yet to go home. I stayed at school over our first break, but I’ll be going home for Thanksgiving!! YAYY!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Parade

If you didn’t notice I’m super excited for Thanksgiving. Also I recently downloaded a keyboard on my phone that lets me send GIFs, so I’ve been playing with it a lot recently.

What am I up to this semester, you ask? I’ve actually been doing a lot this semester. The fall play at my college was Pocatello, and I worked backstage as properties crew during the production. You’ve probably never heard of it, but you should look it up. It’s a really good play. So, when I say I worked as properties crew for the production, I mean that I worked with the props. During the shows I had to make sure all the actors had what they needed and everything was in the right place. There was also a lot of real food that the actors had to eat during the show, so I had to make all the food that they would eat. One of the dishes that was eaten was a cheese wiz casserole, but the actor who had to eat it is a vegan, so we had to come up with a vegan version that looked like the real thing. I had a great time working with everyone. In the end I was given the nickname of “Iron Chef” and I really did earn the title.


I also rushed Alpha Phi Omega (AΦΩ) this semester. APO is a coed service fraternity. I’ve been having so much fun with it this semester and I’ve made a lot of new friends because of it.

 
School as been good this semester. Challenging, but good. For one of my classes I ended up going to NYC and with another I went to DC. I also declared my major this semester. I’m officially a chemistry major with a health studies certificate. Organic chemistry has been kicking my butt, but I’m actually enjoying the class. This year is going to be a great one. I can just feel it.

 

Funny thing is when I went to right the first sentence at first I wrote down freshman instead of sophomore. How time flies.

…Your Brand New Car

  

Surprise! I’m now the proud owner of an ’89 Volkswagen Jetta. So it might not exactly be new, but it’s new to me. And it’s surprisingly in good shape. There’s only a few repairs that need to be made. Most importantly the muffler. I’ve named her Harletta, Harley for short. As in Harley Davidson, because while I was driving down the highway my muffler blew and I sounded like a loud motorcycle. Luckily I can get it fixed before I leave for school. 

My Impressions of A New Bath Salt


So I have to admit, growing up I put off moving from baths to showers as long as possible. I LOVE taking baths. I mean I love love love them. In high school marching band was the last period of the day, so after school I’d always go straight into the bath. So when I was offered to try out the Adovia Dead Sea Salt for free I jumped at the opportunity. I was not paid for this review, but I did receive the product for free.

The company claims that the salt “provides relief from Psoriasis, Eczema, and Arthritis symptoms” and also “rejuvenates, exfoliates, and softens while it soothes.”  While I don’t have psoriasis, eczema or arthritis I did really notice a difference after using the bath salt. Right after putting the salt in the bath water I noticed how silky my water felt. I really enjoyed using the salt in my bath and I stayed in as long as I could. I noticed after getting out how smooth my skin felt. I told my mom about it afterwords and she tried it too, and loved it as much as I did.


I received the smallest size which is 1.75 pounds, which I found was actually a lot. Though I didn’t pay for this package, when I run out I fully plan on purchasing another one. I expect that I won’t run out any time soon, so it’s definitely worth it’s price. Also if you have Amazon Prime, there is free shipping, which is great.

If you want to try it out, you can get it here from Amazon.

I Can’t Believe It’s Been A Year

The incoming freshman just found out their dorm placements for the upcoming school year. It’s hard to believe that a year ago I was in their exact same place. I like to think I’ve learned a lot and changed a lot since starting my freshman year.

Most freshman come to school and they’re like:

By the time the end of the year they’re like:

I can’t wait to get back to school.
