End of the semester crunch.

This semester has flown by super fast, but it’s been one of my best semesters yet at UT. There is so much I’ve been able to learn in such a short period of time… it’s unreal. I think what I’m thankful for most is the fact my 461social class got me back into this whole blogging business.

This new 60-second ad promotes Apple Music as “Distractingly Good” in the commercial titled cleverly titled Taylor vs. Treadmill.

She brings in just the right amount of humor telling the girls on the crosswalk to give her their pants.. she is so serious about it because hey it’s not everyday you come across cute pants right?

Don’t just deal with stress, conquer it.


We all have those days.. I’m talking about the days you don’t know whether to cry about looking like this creepy version of Kermit due to being out of mascara (literally what I feel like) or to cry because of all the research you need to get done with little to no time to complete it. These days are the ones we dread the most (or at least I do).

Chin up, beautiful! You got this. Here are some de-stressing life hacks I use when life is overwhelming and I literally feel like pulling my hair out.  Continue reading
