41 days to Christmas!

I’m feeling very festive lately, I’ve been loving going places and seeing Christmas decorations, and hearing Christmas music in all the stores. So I’ve started my Christmas countdown, there is exactly 41 days and if you count it from this exact moment (7:09pm) there is 2 hours and 51 minuets! I really want to decorate our dorm room for Christmas, so I thought I’d post up some inspirational pictures. :)



I love love love this cupcake Christmas ornament from


Our neighbors in our dorm a couple doors down have a pink Christmas tree up, I want this blue one.

Christmas cookies! I am really excited to make Christmas cookies! I think I am going to cheat here pretty soon and just go buy pre-made sugar cookie dough, so I can decorate cookies.

While making this blog I pauses to look for Christmas counters and I found the Mickey and Minnie Mouse one I put at the top of the page. I know it honestly doesn’t go with the page at all but, I do love Mickey and Minnie, it makes me want to watch all the Once Upon A Christmas Disney movies. :) I think when I go home for Thanksgiving I’m going to have to grab all of my Disney Christmas movies and bring them back to my dorm to watch.

Procrastination, no more.

No more right after this post :)

So, college is by far the hardest thing I have ever done, high school I would say doesn’t prepare you for it at all. Elementary school I think did a better job getting us ready for college by showing us how to read, write, and add together numbers. After that the rest of our K-12 years were just a waste of time it seems.

However, I must admit that I have only been doing a slight bit more studying in college than I did in high school and I feel like that is where I am going wrong. So For about the next 30 days or so I am going to try an experiment where I every morning (or the night before) I plan out my day by the hour so I can give myself the right amount of study time I need for each class, and I am going to do something really weird… I am going to give myself a bed time. Yes, a bed time. So I can actually wake up in the morning with energy and not with the burning desire to hit my snooze button again, and again and again.

I realize that I should’ve started this idea sooner but, I also realize that I am a freshman and its better that I start this now then never. So, I just thought I’d share this little bit of information since I haven’t blogged in literally a million years.

I am now going to end this procrastination and get back to studying for my midterm now. ;)
