theta sophomores 
i'm running a little behind this weeks on posts but i'll be taking the next couple of days to get back on track and hopefully a little ahead. i've just been very busy with my sorority, which is Kappa Alpha Theta. we've been getting ready for recruitment for two weeks and tuesday night we were lucky to welcome 29 new members into theta. 
my little speil on my sorority:
i am very fortunate to have found this wonderful, intelligent, & beautiful  group of women with whom i can share various highs & lows. i have been shaped by all of them & i appreciate them more & more everyday.

bid night!
preference night!

SH*T OSCARPRGIRL SAYS from Oscar de la Renta on Vimeo.

this made me laugh

saw this the other day & couldn't help but feel inspired to do more everyday, even if it's just a small something. we could all use a little pep talk on monday's to get the week started right. Kid President knows just what to say to get me laughing and dancing.

&this video here made me cry (twice) it's awesome

Happy Monday!

happy friday! my first week of school is done and i have a super busy weekend, but i'll make sure to take some time just to breathe. hope your weekend is spectacular. 


i  started my second semester of my sophomore year on a tuesday so my mind is all confused so i seriously thought today was tuesday and came up with a super clever name for this post. i won't spoil it so i can save it for when it actually is tuesday. but at the start of the school year i set a number of goals for myself, while i can't say that i reached any of them last semester, but i can continue to try. i however, want to set new goals for myself. perhaps these will be more manageable but as i continue my college career i realize that no matter how much you plan there's always a wrench in the mix. 
1) nourish my existing relationships.
2) workout everyday (even if it is just a little bit). 
3) focus more on school- stay in and do some work instead of going out. 
4) enjoy 

but for the mean time while i'm trying to accomplish my goals take a listen to hero by family of the year. it's soothing me to sleep and keeping me company on my bike rides.

inauguration day & mlk

regardless of political party i think we can all agree how amazing beyonce's rendition of the National Anthem at yesterdays inauguration. it is a wonderful time when all American's can come together and remember that we are one nation. i get chills listening to her sing she has such a beautiful voice. i am very proud to be an American.

i hope you had a nice MLK day, i did! i spent it volunteering for metroparks in tacoma pulling ivy & blackberry bushes with my sorority sisters.

stylin' bicyclists

 Free People's January catalogue is out and it is beyond cool. It makes me want to put some flowers in my hair, hop on my bike, and buy a baguette ASAP. It also makes me wish for spring and summer so i can bare my colorless legs.  I love the idea of wearing dresses while bike riding instead of the usual workout gear. What do you wear when biking? Here are some of the stunning photographs with equally stunning outfits.
