Happy Thursday and Happy Halloween y'all! I am so excited to be sharing today's post as it's been on my radar to share for quite a while. I asked some of these questions literally last year (blogger of the year award goes to me...clearly) and never got around to answering them. I also asked some questions more recently over on my Instagram so follow along to catch the next one!

I love reading more personal posts on other blogs that allow readers to truly get to know the person behind the computer! Hopefully this helps y'all get to know me a little bit better as well!

Restaurants: Bakersfield East Blvd, Ruru's, Bad Daddy's

Coffee Shops: Not Just Coffee, Waterbean, Joe & Nosh

Sweets: Amelies (a Charlotte classic!), Jeni's, Suarez Bakery, Duck Donuts

Shopping: Southpark Mall, Swoozies, Birkdale Village

To Do: Freedom Park, Walk around NoDa, Go out on Lake Norman, Visit Davidson

Do you have any pets?

Yes! My family and I have a golden retriever named Kona. We recently had to put down our sweet girl Cassie but I know she's running around in heaven :)

Are you still keeping an education major or do you think you'll change it? I know this is a time when a lot of people change their majors so I'm just curious!

Yes, I am still an Elementary Education major! I absolutely adore it, the classes I've been able to take, and am so excited to be a teacher. I did declare a Psychology minor my freshman spring but did decide to drop that!

How did you transition into college?

Keep yourself busy!! I started the process of going through sorority recruitment literally the day after I moved in freshman year and I am so glad I did as it helped with my transition to college life so much as instead of being in my room alone, I was out and about meeting new people!

If I had too much alone time freshman year, it did make me feel less adapted into college life as I would miss my friends or home while doing things whether it's studying in the lib or watching a movie with the girls on my hall, helped so much!

Favorite healthy meals?
Now that I have a kitchen of my own, I definitely want to learn how to cook as honestly I ate dining hall food my first two years of college and I eat whatever my mom makes at home. As for healthy meals, I think a grilled chicken (with a lemon dressing from Whole Foods) with a salad is one of my favs!

What's one of your favorite books?
I recently read "American Royals" by Katharine McGee and loved it! It was such a fun read and I'm excited for the sequel!

Favorite part about college? About Clemson?

I definitely love the independence of college and how other than your scheduled classes, you can decide how to spend your time! I love having the time to do fun things with my friends everyday.

As for Clemson, I could seriously talk about this all day! I absolutely love our campus but you cannot beat the people. Clemson students are seriously the friendliest and I absolutely love the friends I've made. People are so passionate about Clemson, which you can see when alums are still so excited about the school even years after graduating!

Favorite place you've ever visited?

Ok so I am a bit biased from my trip to Italy in May (which you can read about here!) but I absolutely loved Cinque Terre as well as Florence! 

In the United States, I loved my trip to Hawaii in high school and love beach trips to Kiawah Island in South Carolina!

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?

Oooh good question! Right now I would probably say London, Paris, or Bora Bora!

What made you start blogging?

At the start of high school, I started following a few different bloggers and loved the idea of blogging. I didn't have a lot of free time in high school as I was pretty involved, had a lot of schoolwork to do, and played soccer freshman/sophomore year and then nannied junior and senior years after school so I wanted a creative outlet! And here we are!

What's your favorite Lilly print?

Southern Charm and Let's Cha Cha

How do you keep yourself from getting overwhelmed?

When I'm feeling overwhelmed, I always sit down with my agenda and a notebook and write out everything and anything I need to do. Doing that gives me a better grasp of what I need to do and makes me feel less stressed.

To manage overwhelm, I try to give myself plenty of time to get things done and to also balance school work with time spent with friends!

Thanks for reading!
