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 šŸ™‚

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!

Fun Spring Coffee Cups

Way back in the day (okay so it was only 2016, but it feels like a decade ago) I wrote this post on my favorite sassy sayings coffee cups. While my style has changed a bit since then, my dependence upon my morning cup of joe has not.

With spring right around the corner, I’m sure we’re going to wake up to more drizzle mornings and hopefully a few more flowers. These super cute mugs and cups would make great Easter presents (or a fun gift to put a smile on a friend’s face).

Sassy Coffee Cups – Because It’s Still Too Early For Talking

I don’t know about you but my mornings just aren’t the same without a cup of coffee. A word of caution though, don’t try to talk to me before I’ve finished at least half a cup; you might end up seeing a side of me that’s not to your liking!

Because I know I’m not the only one who doesn’t do much conversing in the mornings, here are some coffee cups that will do all your talking for you.

Coffee, BecauseĀ Adulting is Hard

I’m Introverting, Please Go Away

il_570xn-911277606_g55gHello, yes, I’m calling in sick today. No it’s not a cold. It’s something called “introverting.” It’s like hibernating but for people who don’t like other people. Especially the loud ones. I’ll be back next week.

And hey, at least it says please on it!
