Cheap, Lazy Vegan Cooking Tips

I love being vegan! Veganism is a lifestyle where you believe animals have rights, and therefore do not use or exploit animals for anything–food, clothing, makeup, etc. In a diet, that means I don’t consume meat, eggs, dairy, honey, or anything else derived from animals. However, I don’t feel restricted–I consume a large variety of other foods that leave me more than happy and satisfied. I love finding creative new ways to make meals or save money on groceries, so I thought I should share some of those tips with you!

Everything I Did to Get Into Nursing School

I got into nursing school!!! I’m going to nursing school in the fall to get my BSN, and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s been a long process to get here, and I have worked really hard to make sure that I would get into my dream nursing school.

Most of these things come with me in my backpack, so make sure to check out my what’s in my backpack post, too!  Continue reading “5 Technology Must-Haves for College Students”

A Love Letter to Bananas

Dear Bananas,

There’s no denying it—I love you. Always have, always will. You’re the perfect amount of sweetness with a light taste that goes well with anything! You’re just filling enough to be the perfect snack. You’re versatile and a fairly long-lasting fruit. And only $0.44 per pound! No one could replace you, bananas. I’m upset that horrible Americans devastated Central America to get you, but I know that’s not your fault.  Continue reading “A Love Letter to Bananas”

Things That Make Me Happy


We are barely 4 months into 2018, and it has already been the best year of my life! So many amazing things have happened, and I am just oozing joy today. I want to share with you all the amazing, wonderful, happy things that have happened so far this year.

First of all, I started the year off on a cruise in the Bahamas with my best friend and his family. It was such a fun experience. I drank lots of orange juice and ate lots of bagels. We ditched our phones and documented the experience on a disposable camera.
