HI. Technically this is {two} days late, but better late than never, am I right? That’s what happens when you schedule a post to go live on February 14, 2019, instead of February 14, 2018. YIKES. Happy Late Valentine’s Day though! Every year Valentine’s Day is funny because it’s also my half birthday. 21.5, what’s up! Anyway, the weeks have gotten crazier and time has flown by, like how is it already halfway through February?? I have no clue.

Hey y’all! At the end of last year, I was faced with the daunting task of choosing a new planner for 2018. If y’all have been following the blog for a while, you know this is a HUGE deal because I am very particular about my planner. It has to have both weekly and monthly spreads, it must be really sturdy, and it must have lots of extra space to write notes to myself.

For the past two years, I’ve used a standard Erin Condren coil-bound planner (my review and how I organize it), which I’ve mostly loved. The only thing I don’t love is the price tag – $50 is a lot of money!! So when I saw that Erin Condren released a new, hardbound, less-expensive(!!) planner, I jumped right on it. I’m happy to report that this planner has everything I need in a planner, and looks great too!

So quick humblebrag: I’ve been traveling so much in the past few weeks, BUT it’s really taken a toll on my brain, body, and spirit. Now, don’t get me wrong: I love my weekends traveling for sure. It’s SO much fun to talk science with some of the most innovative experts in the field every. single. weekend. But, it’s also pretty exhausting, especially when I have 16 credit hours and assignments due on random dates. My life can seem like it’s go go go 24/7. I figured today I would talk about everyone’s biggest struggle: time management. I haven’t really mastered it yet, but I’ve managed to get a pretty good handle on how I spend my time. Let’s get into it!

Hey y’all! This week’s post is going to be a quick review of my Amazon Alexa and how I use it in my college dorm room. When I received the Amazon Tap last year for my birthday, I was super skeptical about how much I would use it or what I would even use it for. However, I’m happy to report that Alexa has become a daily part of my life and made my life just that much easier!

Hey y'all! This week's post is going to be a quick review of my Amazon Alexa and how I use it in my college dorm room, along with my two favorite Amazon Alexa hacks!
