Success is Always an Option

Warning: The following pictures are all instagrams from my finals week! They contain copious amounts of sugar and sleep depravation! 

I to get my eyes checked out for FOUR hours...I'm not even kidding. Then I had to go to the bank. 

This past semester I worked two jobs (totaling at 30-35 hours a week), took 19 hours (six classes, one being a language class), actively participated in my sorority (I was on two committees) and still managed to spend time with friends. 

I decided to paint my toe nails as I was writing my study guide out...only to spill nailpolish remover all over my study guide
People told me I wasn't going to do well. They told me I was going to stress myself out and stretch myself thin. They told me that I needed to take a break. 

So much time was spent at my desk, studying Italian, revising English Essays and reading about 19th/20th century history.

I would like to point out that none of these people were in my family. My mom, dad, brother, sister and boyfriend were the most supportive people in the world. 

A dinner one night consisted of pizza, and dips. Only to watch Ariel, read ethnographies and consume large amounts of coke and coffee.

These people prided me in my accomplishments and loved me when I was so stressed I was going to cry. They have always told me that I can do whatever I want and as long as I was sure I could handle any situation I put myself into than they would support me on that. 

I would like to point out to everyone who didn't believe in me, that I did it. I made the Dean's List.

Now, I'm not saying that it was an easy task. I worked by butt off and you know what, I could have had a 4.0 but I didn't work as hard as I should have in the beginning of the semester. 

A few of the moveis I watched (Road to El Dorado and Beauty and the Beast) while studying Chemistry & History.

This brings me to my point: you can do anything you set your mind to. Do not let anyone tell you that you cannot do something. If someone does tell you that you cannot do something than try even harder to prove (if you know you can do it) that you can. 

Friends napping during study sessions, proof before I destroyed my study guide, a cup from a friend (because that day was really awful) and so many snacks!


  1. That is absolutely incredible! Congrats!!!!!!!! I would do the same… I stretched myself SO thin, but wouldn't have it any other way. I took a full semester of classes online while I was living and working in Italy too! You are awesome. And so is that cup.

  2. ohhh girl i want those glasses!!!!


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
