What I’ve Been Up To

Ok, I realized I haven’t posted about what I’ve been doing in a while so here’s a short breakdown: -Went to Plymouth to my new favorite place “Cupcake Charlies” and got a delicious cupcake and milk, TWICE -Went shopping for dorm stuff with my roomie and then with my mom.

When Enough is Enough

Today I had to take a second to step back and say whoa, time to give this body a break.

(I’m not one for making excuses not to exercise either, so I’m very disappointed in myself for not being on top of that) But at...
