All opinions are mine alone. #SkinClearingMakeup #CollectiveBias Hey friends!  This semester, I’ve had a rude awakening – and I mean that in the most literal sense. The rude awakening I’m referring to is my alarm clock that wakes me up around 6am most mornings, due to my 8am classes. Of course now that it’s senior year, I thought I would finally have the schedule of my dreams. That proved not to be true since some of these classes are only offered at that beautiful time slot of 8am.…

Hey friends! Do you ever just feel like your life is a little too cluttered at any given moment? I don’t know about you, but I feel like even if everything is in order, I always find something to stress out about or worry about. Senior year is going to be the year that I work on reducing this.

I can remember waking up with the journal covering my face, as I accidentally fell asleep still writing. There are even occasions I remember of staining the pages of the journal with my tears as I would write…

Hey friends! After about a month and a half living on Lake Atitlán, it truly feels like home already. Even by the second week here, it already felt like home. One of the main reasons that I think I settled in so quickly is the fact that I work at my internship Monday – Friday, which gives me a routine that automatically gives my schedule some regularity and rhythm.  I’ve found all of my favorite spots, made incredible friends, and work at a company with an incredible vision. Before I moved here this summer, I thought that I would have…
