This post almost didn't happen. I moved into my new place (gooood bye west campus) and I don't have access to wifi yet. But no worries because I could use my phone for wifi, right? Right! Unless my laptop breaks - which it did. But now my laptop and I are reunited and I have access to wifi once more (thank you coffee shops).


+ Like previously mentioned, I moved! I'm in a cute condo that is a 15 minute bus ride from campus. 

+ Vacation in Galveston was such a blessing. My last visit was during a 5th grade leadership camp (once a geek, always a geek) so it was nice to replace those awkward memories with VSCO filtered memories with my family. 

+ I've been chipping away at my Austin bucket list. Visited Juan in a Million, Holy Cacao and ate at Whole Foods!


+  If are looking for the definition of hustle, just look at Dara from Love, Darbie. She is a recent graduate from the University of Texas at Austin and has a successful blog and photography business. She's written the guide on turning your passion into profit!

+ It is no secret that I'm a fan of Laura. She's featured on my must read blogs for premeds and I follow her on every social media account. I really appreciated the quick peak behind the curtain and looking at how she maintains a successful blog!

+ I'm not sure if Laura and Fran both planned to have blog posts about the blogging game published around the same time, but if you enjoyed Laura's post you'll enjoy Fran's "How much do you make from blogging" and other questions!


+ Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.” — Ernest Hemingway 

+ “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” — Eckhart Tolle

+ “Why should I feel lonely? Is not our planet in the Milky Way?”— Henry David Thoreau
