Simply Saturday V.32

Good morning y'all! This morning I'm traveling to Phoenix and then to California as an early Thanksgiving trip. My flight was early this morning, so by the time your reading this, I'm probably already there!  Like I said before on Thursday's blog post, I'm traveling to Phoenix for my nephew's baptism. I am so incredibly excited to see my family and finally to have a little break from school. I definitely have been a bit burnt out since we didn't get a fall break from Hurricane Irma, so I'm excited to do some relaxing before we get into finals.

ONE // J.Crew Casting
    At work, we have been super busy with putting out all of the new arrivals (which I'm OBSESSED with). Along with the new items,  J.Crew announced the social media casting campaign! I think it's such a fun idea and it's one of the things I love working for the company. If you're interested, use the hashtag #CastMeJcrew and #contest.

TWO // Relentless by Forbes
    I came upon this video on Youtube and loved the concept. I am always super curious about what big entrepreneurs and business owners do on their schedule to help with productivity. I ended up binge-watching all of the videos and felt totally inspired. Click here to watch the playlist!

THREE // Happy Stripes 
    I have been on the hunt for more sweaters to get for the chillier days in Charleston. Gap's newest campaign features this colorful and cheerful happy stripe collection and I am obsessed! It definitely reminds me of my Emily Ley planner, but they offer it in scarves, sweaters, and so much more!

What I've Been Up To

Sophia here! I am so sad to have been away from blogging, and truthfully miss typing and talking to y'all! I have been so caught up with school, work, and extracurriculars that blogging has been something I wanted to jump back into. College life has been pretty good so far, but definitely something I have been having some trouble adjusting to, which is normal. 

Classes and my school life, in general, has been very different the high school but has been a learning experience. I'm currently taking 18 credit hours towards both my major and general education classes. I've been really pushing myself to do my best in my classes which causes me to spend a lot of time on my work and perfecting things. I'm a pretty slow learner and I'm the type of person who has to start early on anything from essays to tests. So I usually spend my time by starting early on assignments and organizing my time with what I can get ahead with.

As for personal life, it's definitely been a learning experience. I think college is definitely much harder to make friends and it's something that I'm quickly adapting to. I'm apart of a couple of groups on campus, and I'm honestly just joining a lot to find my group of people! I have found a group of friends that I enjoy and it's something that I'm feeling better about. I can think back to late September to early October when I honeslty didn't have many people to lean on and it was really starting to hit me. But I think as the time has gone on and I've definitely changed my opinion about things. I'm just taking life one day at a time!

As for right now, I'm really excited for this weekend! I am so lucky and blessed that I'm able to go home early for Thanksgiving and I can't be happier! I miss my family so much and cannot wait to see them. I'm heading home early for my nephew's baptism which is this weekend so it will be so much fun for the family to be together! After that, I will be going home to California and getting to spend some time to relax. We have some fun things planned for the two weeks I'm home, and I'm planning on getting back to my blogging groove!
