3 Secrets To The Best School Year Ever™ (How I’m Owning College AND High School)

It’s almost Fall!

We’re so close, I’m already beginning to imagine it… raking leaves in the chilly autumn air. Salted Caramel flavored everything. S’mores and campfires and fuzzy jackets. And that means it’s time for…. a new school year!!!

*distant sobbing*

Yeah, I’m not even going to pretend I like school. I count it as something to be grateful for, sure, but it’s like the United States school system is trying to make us go insane.

I’ve been through this rodeo plenty of years now (tenth grade & dual enrolling in college, wohoo), and I can safely say that I’ve learned a thing or two about how to deal with the pressure without falling prey to a total identity crisis.*


*ok so maybe i have a mini identity crisis every now and again??? just a little one!!

#OrganizeYourWorld – Tech Organization

It’s post number two of #OrganizeYourWorld!!

So it appears the first post was a success, no matter how incredibly scatterbrained and rant-y it was! I was really happy to see your reactions; yay for organizing friends 😀

Unfortunately, some of you don’t use desks. And that made me upset, because I want everybody who reads to at least have the opportunity to organize through #OYW. It’s fun! It’s a group activity! (in a way…)

But this week is about something EVERYBODY uses. It’s what you’re using right now to read this. It’s…. technology!!

If you’re a writer, blogger, student, or human being living in 21st century America, it’s safe to say that you’re pretty familiar with technology. But it’s also safe to say that your documents, pictures, and apps are at least a little bit cluttered with everything going on in busy busy LIFE.

Because Life™ is just so considerate.

THANKFULLY you’ve got a girl on your team who’s so crazy about organizing, she made a mini guide for you! Soo… let’s get to it! *jazz hands*

#OrganizeYourWorld – DIY Desk Makeover (+ Desk Hacks!)

Welcome to the first post of my #OrganizeYourWorld series!

IM SO HOOPED YALL. SO. HOOPED.

I got lots of support from last post’s comments about this series so that made me extra extra excited to get going on this organizing stuff! To be perfectly honest, I’m also a little nervous – it’s my first series and it’s on a very wide topic aaahhhhh! – but your support is super encouraging so thank you so much ❤

To kick off the 4-part series, we’re going to be addressing what I feel is a pretty big topic when it comes to organizing – workspaces. AKA your desk, AKA the thing you probably use 20+ hours a week. And, at least at first sight, this is a pretty overwhelming project.

BUT WHY ELSE DO YOU THINK I HAVE THIS SERIES?? Let’s get started!!

6 Annoying Questions Every Homeschooler Is Asked

Hello, everybody, how are you doing? How’s your day been? How’s the weather?

Just kidding, yall can’t talk until the end of the post. 😦

So, Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the time when all those public schoolers get a day off of school. They run outside in the cold and play for hours, totally ignoring the poor, imprisoned homeschoolers who are watching from their desks. Lucky ducks.

Thinking about it was enlightening. No, they’re not very lucky. They’re not homeschooled. Just to explain what ‘homeschooling’ is takes soooo much energy. If you’re homeschooled, you probably know what I mean; sometimes, they ask the weirdest questions, and then you have to repeat your answer five times because homeschool lingo is too complicated somehow.

Therefore, here are six annoying questions you’re asked as a homeschooler by those ‘lucky’ public schoolers. I feel like I have a large homeschool and Co-Op audience, so here’s to you. *bows*
