Treat Yo Self: 5 Ways to Relax and Unwind

Sometimes we all need to take some time for ourselves to relax and unwind. Whether it's the stress of school/work, a busy week, or feeling completely exhausted, time for ourselves is necessary every now and then. Here are 5 suggestions for the next time you need to treat yourself to some "me" time.

1. Clean: I know what you're thinking. Why on earth would I want to clean when all I want to do is relax?! But I'm telling you, if you do it right, cleaning can be really relaxing! Turn on your favorite music, sing at the top of your lungs (best part of the process really), and clean up your space. You'll feel so much better and more relaxed when your room is neat, organized, and inviting.

How I Got There: Transferring and Joining a Sorority

So for today's post I'm sharing some big aspects of my college career with you: transferring and joining a sorority!

My freshman year, I was at a smaller private university in North Carolina. I always pictured myself going to a big school but after applying to this smaller college, I started to like the idea. I went to a small private high school and thought that maybe it would be a better fit for me. As it turns out, it wasn't. A lot of people love being at a smaller university and I definitely had plenty of friends and classmates at this college that were head over heels for the school. It just wasn't for me. I quickly realized (within the first semester) that I wanted to be at a big school. I wanted to be at a huge SEC school where football games were top tier and where I could join a sorority. The small university that I started at didn't have Greek life and while football was still huge, it wasn't SEC style.

10 Things You Experience When You Move To Vegas

As I've mentioned on my blog before, I've lived in a LOT of different places. I spent high school in Las Vegas. Moving there, after living in mainly the south east, was a definite change. But I truly loved my time there. Although I am "from" a lot of places, I feel like Las Vegas is more so my home than a lot of the other places that I lived. I did a lot of growing up there and made life long friends in that desert city.

I've been missing Las Vegas a lot lately, so I thought this would be a fun, reflective post. There's a lot more where these came from, but here are 10 things that I discovered after moving to Vegas.

1. Slot Machines: They're not just for casinos. 
You can spot the gambling man at your local grocery store when you live in Vegas. The entrance of most grocery stores is home to slot or video poker machines. Such a strange discovery when you hit up Albertson's for the first time.

2. Clouds: A rare occasion for the Vegas dweller. 
In Vegas, there's not much need for checking the weather. You can bet on it being sunny 99% of the time. I love it. (Bonus: it's super hot but never humid) But if you ask the locals, most will tell you that a cloudy or rainy day is their favorite because it's such a rare occasion.
