Smile Post #3

It's a beautiful 66 degrees outside and the sun in shining bright! For the past two weeks, I have been a slave to my email and the stress that comes with it. I am currently applying for a lot of internships and conferences, so with the anxiety of waiting to hear back I have been going CRAZY.

But, I have a great group of friends who have been super supportive throughout this waiting-time. So, this is me... letting go of the unnecessary stress and going with the flow. What's meant to be, is meant to be. So whatever news I get, good or bad, I will take in stride!

Is there anything stressing you out? If, you're having a bad day... just click on this link

Trust me, if this doesn't cheer you up, I don't know what will!! :) 

Remember, you're never fully dressed without a smile.

Smile Post #2

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy, when skies are grey.

Lately, I have been so stressed with internships and family illnesses that I haven't been taking the time to just be so thankful for the blessings that I already have.

So for the rest of the week I'm going to do my best to look at everything in my life, with the glass half full approach. Hope you do the same!

January's Bulletins

Sorry, this post is coming so late! I just wasn't in love with these boards, but they still turned out nice!  
First, in the MAC stairwell is The Year 2012 board with random facts about 2012. No one really sees this board so I decided to go with something I wouldn't have to maintain that much. 

The second board is Time for Organizing. For those of you, who have seen my pinterest, you will know I have a board dedicated to organizing ideas! So I decided that if my residents were making new years resolutions to stay organized I would give them so key starting points. I also included a slide about some of my favorite organizing blogs, such as I heart organizing

 I put the boards up before Winter Break and Chad came up for the RA formal and helped me out! He got so frustrated trying to put up the paper that I think its safe to say he won't be an RA anytime soon.

He did do fairly well though, so I can't complain because I definitely found lots of entertainment watching him *attempt* to put them up!

To the right, is my door decorations for January. They are simple and sweet! -- Hopefully, they will bring some snow to the Mount!

And to the left, is the newest schedule! On my door, I find it is helpful for me to put up a schedule so if my residents need to reach me they can see when I will most likely be back in my room!

So those are the two boards I updated for January. I'm super excited for next months board so look out!

Goals for 2013

I love cute posters like these, check this one out here.

This year, I want to strive to be optimistic! With a new semester of classes and memories coming my way, I am going to do my best to be as optimistic and positive as possible! I also want to continue trusting in God. He has given me so much and I truly am so thankful to have him play a major role in my life!

Also, new coming on the blog will be Smile Posts... what is a Smile Post? -- Well, every Tuesday (hopefully)... I will post some inspiration, sunshine, or happy thoughts that hopefully will make you smile and get through your Tuesday :) 

What are your goals for 2013?
