Long overdue.

Ok.

So basically, I suck.

Not only did I say I was going to post updates while I was on my trip, but I also said I would start posting about my trip in detail when I returned.

Well, I did neither. But I can justify it!

During my trip I didn’t bring my computer. Now while I know I can still blog from my phone, I was honestly just having such an amazing time that that was the last thing on my mind. Not only that, but I got so little sleep every night because we had such busy day (and nights) that when I finally did have some down time on a train, plane, or bus, I was either looking at the gorgeous scenery outside OR was passed out.

As of my excuse to my lack of blogging since I’ve been back (its been a little over a month) well….I’ve moved cities, moved into a new apartment, started my first big-girl job, partied in New Oreleans, and have been working on updating my portfolio site, which can be found here (shameless plug, I know).

So basically, I went from a fairytale vacation to being thrown head first into the “real world”…all the while with that Paramore song playing on repeat in my head.

But now I’ve settled into a routine (which is only semi-hectic) and can’t wait to start sharing stories about my adventures (especially my trip to Europe) with you guys!

Stayed tuned! I promise I’ll try to work on being less sucky and post a lot more often!

At it again!

I leave for another Europe trip tomorrow! I cannot even explain how excited I am for another adventure!

This time around, I’ll be traveling in a group of 7 girls. We start in Ireland and make our way through the UK then on to Germany, Austria, Italy, then back over to Portugal.

I’m not bringing my computer this go-roung though, because its just too heavy and I’m trying to only bring necessities this time! But I’ll be sure to blog about EVERYTHING when I return.

I think I’m most excited for Edinburgh, Scotland and Lisbon, Portugal. But definitely Lisbon in particular, because I’ve heard its so underrated and absolutely amazing. I can’t wait to get lost in its winding, hilly streets.

I’m also SUPPPERRR pumped to be going to TWO international music festivals! I will be attending the Isle of Wight Festival at the Isle of Wight (an island off the coast of England, NBD) for a day and Optimus Alive Festival in Lisbon for a day to end the trip!

I hope I’ll be able to update a little (even though I’m not bringing my computer). If not, I’m definitely going to be blogged extensively when I return!

So last night I attended the Local Natives concert at the Varsity Theatre in Baton Rouge, LA. I have heard sooo many great things about this band since a few of my friends saw them at Bonnaroo in 2011. So, I wanted to check out their live performance for myself. I had heard a little bit of their new album “Hummingbird,” but was more familiar with their older one, “Gorilla Manor.”

Hello, world!

So, I decided to start a blog. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a lot to say about a lot of different things, and by “a lot” I mean more than is socially acceptable to have in a Facebook status update. Not only that, but I’m always looking for new and creative ways to procrastinate from schoolwork. (one of my greatest talents). So, when I’m bored or something particularly interesting has happened in my life, or I don’t feel like focusing on academia, I’ll be sure to post it here! And even if no one reads it, well, like I said, it beats homework.
