Advice for Grads...

It's that time of year again for graduates, which got to me thinking about advice I would give to those that have recently been spit out into this place we call the real world.

Some things you should probably know about post grad life before reality slaps you hard in the face...

First and foremost the fun is over.  (jk post grad can be fun I guess)

The career gods are not going to show up at your door begging you to take your dream job off their hands, unfortunately this is not a thing.  Trust me I know I am still anxious at the sound of a knock at the door.

No matter how often you visit or don't visit your college town things will never be the same again. Everyone will always from here on out be younger, skinnier and make you wish for your youth to return.

Everyone and their dog will get engaged, just hopefully not to their dog thats just really weird. Every. Single. Day.  and you may be single and no where near this stage in your life and thats okay.

There will be plenty of people who appear to have the perfect job, life ect. according to facebook and instagram anyway.  Just keep scrolling life is hard.

You may have imagined your life one perfectly planned way, but you could be wrong.

You are probably going to get a job or two that you hate.

You might move back in with mom and dad.

There will be people who land their dream job right away.  Those people are rare and no one liked them anyway.  Kidding. Kinda.

And most importantly you are probably not alone in any of this.

In the meantime  for those who are still taking classes and getting ready for a new semester go check out  start saving that money now while it is still acceptable to be a broke college student and rent your books.

Some perks of is 40-90% off bookstore prices and free shipping both ways. (I'm a sucker for free shipping) And they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented, so go try out

Count me out.

Some days you just don't feel like participating in life.
Those days for me are usually called Mondays.
Some valid reasons I feel are acceptable for taking the day off from Life...
It's a Monday.
You have nothing to wear.
The sun is too bright.
The wind is blowing.
Someone else just got engaged along with the 52 other people on your newsfeed.
You just love your job so much.
You didn't get a full 10 hours of sleep the night before.
You would have to shower and make yourself presentable for the day ahead of you.
You might have to talk to people.
You might have to be nice to said people.

Yeah sometimes it would just be better to not participate.

What's on your playlist?

I listen to a lot of music.  
I have to play music while I get ready in the morning, driving, working, I am even about to purchase a speaker for my shower.

I have spent probably thousands in iTunes but lately my main go to for music is Spotify.

I prefer to listen to a new album before I buy it so I'm not stuck just liking one song from the whole album and the best part is Spotify is fo FREE. 
(No this wasn't sponsored by Spotify I just really love it.)

I listen to a little bit of everything but my go to is always country and red dirt of course.

Some of my favorites this week/always... 
 George Strait (duh)
Garth Brooks
 Dean Brody 
Turnpike Troubadours
 Hunter Hayes new album
Josh Abbott
 Kristen Kelly
Casey Donahew
Wade Bowen
Kyle Park
Jana Kramer
Mac Miller

Who are some of your favorites?

That blogging rut.

The blogging rut, yeah you know the one.
I feel like mine has been going on for quite some time now.  
I really enjoy blogging but let's be honest  it doesn't always come easy.
I can't tell you how many times I have went to write a post and nothing.
I will think of an idea and half way through the post it gets deleted and nothing gets posted.
Well I am trying to get off the struggle bus and get back to posting more than once every few weeks.

I thought I would share some blog posts ideas to use when nothing is coming.

Show us your space.  I don't know about you but I'm kinda nosey I enjoy seeing where people blog, sleep, live. ect.

Organization tips.  Whether it be organizing your cabinets, closet, life share it.

Cars.  I just really like cars, this could get interesting. Post a pic, some people look like they live in their car (sometimes me), some won't even eat in their car?

Your OOTD.  So this one I kinda have a love hate relationship with sometimes I love seeing OOTD and sometimes I really get annoyed with them. I have never done one but who knows maybe I will give it a go.

Something that makes you happy.  A kid, a puppy, food, whatever floats your boat.

Favorite Apps.  I love apps and love finding new favorite apps, like today I learned about the app Glide.

Your favorite people.  Sometimes you just want to share your favorite people in life.  It's okay.

Letter to your younger self.  I have never done one of these but always meant to.

Your morning routine.  What do you do to prepare for the day?

What are some blog post ideas you have?

I have really abandoned my blog lately, I think about posting I really do and then it doesn't happen.

It could be my quarter life crisis but I just don't know what I want to do with my life anymore.

Being a big kid and deciding what to do with your life is hard.

If only the real world were more like the game LIFE.

Everyone gets married around the same time in the game.

You get to pick your career and salary by drawing a card and if it isn't that great you just steal someone elses or draw a new one at some point.

You don't have bills every month, just if you happen to land on that space every once in a while but if you got the good salary card then it doesn't really matter.

I mean yeah you have to drive a van/station wagon but everyone has the same car just in different colors so no one really judges you on the bad taste in car choice.

But real life is not like the game so if anyone wants to pay me to stay home and craft and blog all day, I'm available.
