Post-Grad Update

hello lovelies and happy sunday!
I hope you have been healthy, high-spirited, and caring towards others. It has been a long while since I lasted posted (I believe it has been roughly four months).
Since my last update, many things have changed, and I am excited to share them with you! So, I hope you can take the time to go down memory lane with me! If not, I think I summarized everything in the vlog below, which was posted almost a month ago. If you would like to be up-to-date, please subscribe and follow my social media outlets!

5 Tips to Survive Spring in Texas

** As written on Her Campus UNT **

Unlike most parts of the country, spring is a very unpredictable time for us in the deep south. Siri and Alexa may tell you one thing, then you get to your destination and it’s either too hot, too cold, or too wet. For us university students, this inconsistency can set a negative, or uncomfortable, tone to our day.

Here are 5 tips for surviving spring in Texas.

Good afternoon loves~ How have you been? I hope everything is going well. Summer is right around the corner, and you will finally be able to catch your breathe.
I have been doing well, and as usual, school is overtaking my life. However, I have been more open to going out, and trying to be more social. As many of you know, I am trying to revamp my blog, and YouTube channel since I am graduating in May. It’s a very slow process because I’m not use to actively trying to be productive with my hobbies, but I’m getting there!

I am planning on purchasing my domain after I graduate, but before I can do that — I really need to get use to getting back into the flow of things. So far, I have a general idea of what I want to change, but I need to be more decisive before I can start playing around with it. I know I want to keep this space as more of a lifestyle blog because I don’t want to limit myself when I have many interests.
When I first started my blog, almost four years ago, it was meant to be an outlet for my creative side since I am always focusing on my logical and scientific side at school. Unfortunately, I was getting more and more overwhelmed with school, and started to cut back on my blog — which I regret. Now, I still want to maintain this space as a way for me to use my creative side, but more as a hobby and part-time job, than an outlet.

I will keep the schedule the way it is since it works really well with school and work:
** Wednesdays at 2:00 PM CST
** Saturdays at 2:00 PM CST

Overall, this note is to prove that I am alive, and proof that I am going to be more accountable on my blog and my YouTube channel. If you guys have any recommendations on what you would like to see, please let me know! For now, I gotta get ready for class — ‘Till next time~

With Love, Joslyn



5 Things to Think About to Help You Fulfill Your Healthy Resolutions

** As written on Her Campus UNT **

If you were to look up the top 10 most common resolutions, I can guarantee that losing weight and getting healthy are somewhere on that list, along with other lifestyle changes. While wanting to shed a few pounds and eating more salad is all good and dandy, it is not easy – but, you already knew that. What you might not realize is that being healthy is more of a mental challenge than a physical one.

Here are five things to think about while managing your healthy new year’s resolutions:

Greetings Loves!
It has been about a week and a half since I finished the semester, and I have recharged! I am ready to make a come back on my blog and youtube channel.

But first, while I’m waiting for my first video to render, should I solidify my schedule, or keep it on a “whenever I can” type schedule?

The options for a solid schedule include:

  • 1x a week: Friday; Saturday; or Sunday
  • 2x a week: Wednesday + Saturday
  • 2x a week: Friday + Sunday
  • 3x a week: Wednesday + Friday + Saturday

Realistically speaking, 1x or 2x a week is more my speed, but if you would like to see me try to push out 3x a week — I can make it work!

With that being said, I am graduating from my undergraduate journey in May 2019, so I would prefer my blog to be fully functional by that time.
This blog was originally suppose to be my creative outlet, and it still is; however, during the past 3.5 years, it was a struggle for me to adjust with school and trying to find time for everything.

During this winter break, I am really looking forward to getting everything in order, and returning back to good habits of being happy and productive!

Get ready, because I will be trying to push out more quality content!

With Love, Joslyn
