New Year Resolutions.

 Every year I make a long list of things I want to get accomplished. Usually I achieve one or two of those things and the rest are forgotten until the next year. This year however, I have a plan that won't let me forget my resolutions for the year. I made a checklist poster that will hang next to my bed as well as setting daily reminders on my phone. Hopefully these methods will help me complete more of my resolutions. 

My New Year's Resolutions 
 Be Healthier 
 Do better in school 
 Save 50 dollars from each paycheck
 Improve wardrobe 
 Be a better person 
 Read 50 books 
 Take voice lessons
 Learn to play an instrument 
 Start serious LSAT Prep
Blog twice a week
 
What are your resolutions?

Reflections

It's almost the new year!!! Now that he semester from hell is over and I came out of it with mostly decent grades, (Math killed me for a 2nd time), I've had a lot of time to think about 2013.
2013 was a lot of fun, but it had it's share of bad days too. 
But I am extremely excited for the new year. I'm starting my first real job this year as well as taking a very well deserved break from theatre. I am also excited for a new list of resolutions to (hopefully) complete this year. 

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the past year

What are your favorite memories from 2013?

Being Thankful

Happy belated Thanksgiving lovelies!  
Being a history major I'm not a huge fan of the holiday but it is a time to be with family and be grateful for all of the blessings in your life. When my granny was alive she and I would start preparing food on Tuesday to feed the whole family but since she died we've all split up into our own little nuclear family groups. It's auch smaller affair but it's just as significant. I'm just grateful that everyone is in good enough help to celebrate. 
How does your family celebrate Thanksgiving? What are you thankful for this year?

Time Management

" Without Time Management juggling so many hats would be just as chaotic as it sounds." 
- Aleshia Silva
Hey Y'all!
I haven't posted a blog in a log time and I'm sorry but I have been beyond busy!
I'm currently in rehearsals for three of the four shows I auditioned for at the beginning of the semester, working on  my senior seminar paper (even though I'm only a junior!) and participating in multiple extracurricular activities, all while trying to maintain a decent GPA and a social life!
With all of this on my plate, time management is my best friend. I have to make time for all of my rehearsals and club meetings. Here are some of my favorite tips for time management:

1. I keep a copy of my schedule with me at all times whether it's in my phone or in my binder for school.This helps me not double book myself and cuts down on the amount of rehearsals I miss. Google Calender is also a really good tool for keeping your schedule organized. 

2. Don't procrastinate. I know it's so tempting, I'm a chronic procrastinator myself, but when you know that you are going to be super busy you need to get stuff done when you can.


3. Keep snacks/ water with you. This will help if you have to miss a meal because of an event, so you won't starve while you wait for the next meal time. Having a reusable water bottle like a bobble is great because you'll be able to drink great tasting water wherever!

4. Plan your day out when you wake up, go through your schedules in the morning and compare and see what you have to do. This cuts down on the surprise events and you will know exactly how much free time you have. 

5. Be Flexible, things happen and plans change. Don't freak out about it. This will only stress you out 


Those are a few of my top time management tips.What are some of yours?

Bobble #waterrevolution

Hey y'all! I recently got a position as a Bobble Campus Ambassador! If you don't know, Bobble is a brand of bpa free reusable water bottles that filter the water so you get clean, fresh water without having to buy disposable bottles all the time. Bobble's mission is to defeat the enemy that is plastic waste.  It saves you a ton of money because the bottle only costs 10 dollars and 1 filter equals 300 bottles of water as well as helping the environment. Plus, they're super cute! I had one and it's  absolutely amazing. It's definitely a must have for the girl(or guy) on the go. 

Do you have a reusable water bottle?
