Friyay // September 2

I haven't done a weekly update post in a couple weeks, so here I am, writing a weekly update post! I can't believe I've been in class for two weeks now and that it's September. I'll be spending the long weekend writing/scheduling blog posts and failing miserably at working on working on my first Adobe Illustrator composition for my mandatory design class. I'm struggling with this class, so if you know of any good Adobe tutorials, please let me know!

+ I'm really hoping that I'm able to be a college ambassador for a local venue down here (in addition to my six classes + part-time job + blogging... what am I doing to myself? Haha). More details to come if I get the gig!

+ Shoutout to Michelle for informing me on Twitter that students with ID get a free milkshake with the purchase of a meal at Chick-Fil-A. The last two years of college have been wasted because CFA is love and CFA is life.

+ Courtenay's tips for those pre-grad jitters are spot-on!

+ I met a fellow blogger for coffee last week, and it was pretty cool talking in person with someone whom I met online. If you're connected on social media with a blogger who lives in your area or goes to the same school, you should definitely reach out to see if she'd want to meet up!

+ Not to get ahead of myself, but I'm already imagining all the baking possibilities for fall via Pinterest. How about these muffins, these bars, these blondies and this bread?! And I'm a black coffee-lover at heart, but this pumpkin iced coffee just looks insanely delicious.

And on the blog this week, if you missed it: my August playlist, a recipe for healthy banana muffins, my tips for new bloggers, and how you can read more.

How are classes going, if you've started? Any plans for the long weekend? 


  1. Alexa, sending so many good vibes your way for the college ambassador position! You'd be great!
    I also did not know about Chick-Fil-A's discount for students...what have I been doing with my life?!

    1. Aw thanks, Caitlin! And right?! So many free milkshake opportunities missed haha :)
