On My Radar

Since starting school I have been super busy! Obviously I’m not surprised, but I’m still a little shocked at just how busy I’ve been. I feel like this semester is much different than last semester in that I’m spending more time on homework but getting less of an overall understanding of what’s going on. Go figure!

I haven’t done a “what’s on my radar” post in a little while, so here’s what’s been on my mind recently! From Instagram posts to weird Youtube rabbit holes, get ready for a wild ride.

I’ve been obsessed with guinea pigs recently. I actually adopted a little baby boy earlier this month! His name is Walt and I love him to death. In doing my research on how to care for him, I found the BEST guinea pig account on Instagram! @officialpigdad is hilarious. The pictures where the piggies are wearing sunglasses are my favorites.

I’m also starting to apply for summer internships. Many of my friends are applying to all the places they can, some are only applying to a few select places depending on the type of law they want to practice later on in life, and I’m somewhere in between. I’m applying to all the “cool” sounding jobs, the jobs that have something to do with family law or anything at all related to art, and all of the jobs open for Macon, GA and Asheville, NC. I am going to be so happy when the job search is over!

I set up my 2020 bullet journal using a Karst notebook and wow I am disappointed! I’ll try and make a whole post on this later, but sheesh the quality of the paper was not at all what I expected for the price of the notebook. Especially when the paper is made of stone!

My favorite weekly spread (so far) has been this one! So many sunshines! It all just makes me smile 🙂

I’ve also been so obsessed with my Relax – mint leaf and mandarin two wick jar candle. I got it for my birthday and wow! It smells amazing! Not only that, the scent truly is relaxing. Once lit, it’ll make your whole room smell like a spa.

On the Youtube side of things, my favorite Youtuber Amanda Rach Lee is taking a break. I totally get why she’s doing it. Her video explaining everything is a little long winded, but I empathize with every little bit of it. If you’re pushing yourself so hard that you start having extreme anxiety over every little thing, take a break. It’s not worth it.

On the happier (and guinea pig obsessed) side of things, I’ve found a channel devoted to learning all about guinea pigs, their keeping and care, and the LA Guinea Pig Rescue! Getting to see guinea pig babies, piggy adoptions, and sick guineas being nursed back to health just warms my heart.

The channel is called Saskia from Los Angeles Guinea Pig Rescue. Here’s the link to the Youtube channel and here’s a link to the LA rescue center’s website.

One last thing before I go: Silli Pint! My mom has been obsessed with this company for a few months now. They make silicone cups, which they’re unbreakable and eco-friendly! They mimic all the cup shapes you know and love (like your pint glass, wine glass, shot glass, you get the picture) so they’re easy to use. You use them exactly the same way you’d use a regular glass, only they won’t shatter if you drop them! Plus they come in some crazy fun colors. Mine is a glow in the dark 16 oz pint glass with a travel lid so I can take it on the go.

That’s all for now! See you next week!

Second Semester of Law School

Today is the first day of my second semester at Mercer Law! While I’m not necessarily looking forward to being back in the classroom after such a nice break, I am ready to take whatever challenges come my way.

Here’s to struggling my way through semester number two!

Hello 2020!

2019 was a wild year for me. I applied to law schools, accepted a full scholarship to Mercer, graduated from the University of Georgia, had an internship with the UGA Performing Arts Center, mentored a group of freshmen, gave tours of my favorite school, traveled out of the country, moved to Macon, and started my fall semester at law school.

I am so thankful for all the opportunities 2019 brought me. From new friends to new experiences, I’ve learned a lot about the world and about myself. Here I am, ready to do it all again.

I set some small goals for myself in 2019: go to law school, read 15 books, run a 10k, do yoga every week, learn to meditate, etc. I didn’t meet all of them. I still haven’t run in an official 10k race, and I haven’t done yoga since the summer. Life happens, ya know?

This year I’m setting some new goals, similar to the wishlist I wrote about in my 23rd birthday post. Here’s what I want to do in 2020:

  • Getting onto Law Review at Mercer
  • Get into the top 25% of my class
  • Trying out for mock trial
  • Finish the novel I started writing ages ago
  • Buy one piece of art from a local artist to hang in my house
  • Fill up three journals
  • Learn how to needlepoint (or some other artsy thing I haven’t done before!)
  • Take a pottery class
  • Run in a 10k race

What do you want to do in 2020?
