Staying Organized

I am an organizational freak. I swear, if I don’t have everything written down in my planner, iPhone calendar and iPad calendar, it will not get done. My friends always laugh at how picky I am with planners, I’ve been through four so far this semester!

People always comment on how organized I am and ask how I’m able to stay on top of all the things I have going on without it being a disaster. My answer is always a few liters of coffee a day (exaggerated I know, but not too far off!) and keeping track of everything I have to do in multiple ways!

Adopt, Don’t Shop

I absolutely adore dogs. I always have. They are the sweetest, most loving creatures on this planet. They give you unconditional love and they really are man, and woman’s, best friend.

Summer Reads

One of the best parts about summer is all of the extra time you seem to have. The days seem so much longer, giving you more time to get everything you need to get done accomplished and still give you extra “me” time. I always find that the best way to fill up that extra time is reading. Summer is the best time to get lost in great books because you have so many options! Not only are there tons of amazing new releases but the amazing weather lets you have the option of reading inside at home or enjoying the weather at a park or by the water or wherever!

I am am a huge reader. I love finding and exploring new books, meeting the new characters and falling in love with them. I love fiction and non fiction, novels and memoirs. I can re-read the same book a hundred different times and fall a little more in love with it every time I read those last words. This summer I’ve already gone through a large stack of books, these are the ones that I’ve loved the most, my top summer reads!
