Review Extravaganza Part 3 & 4

Linking up with the wonderful woman over at the Johanson Journey for the Review Extravangaza! If you missed it, check out Part One and Part Two. This link up has been an amazing reminder to celebrate my small achievements in life. This year has been rocky, to say the least, and while I for one cannot wait to send it on it’s way…this little project has been a good time to remind myself that there’s still beauty in the darkness, if you just look for it. 

 

july

spent lots more time in the sunshine, reading, playing with my nieces and just generally trying to be tan. started this blog with my first ever post: The 5 Assholes You’ll Date in College (still my favorite to this day). spent more time being frustrated than i should’ve.

 

august

In the span of 48 hours I: interviewed, flew out for a second interview, accepted my first “big-girl” job offer and found a roommate. Whirlwind? Absolutely.

september

I moved to Saint Louis, which as I sit on my family’s couch back in Michigan…I have to admit is growing on me. I started my first big girl job. Struggled to assemble shelves and other SWF problems.

Though I hate to admit it…I live in a beautiful place.

 

october

started really getting to know my coworkers and having fun at work. started attending a book club. celebrated halloween– tacky Pi Phi prom style. went to homecoming with my best friend–completing 18/20 of the “Top 20 things to do on your first trip back to homecoming as an alumnae” list that we composed.

Missourah wineries with the Pi Phi alum club definitely helped me like MO more 😉

home is wherever i’m with you…and all that cheesy shit.

november

thanksgiving? kept enjoying the beautiful things STL has to offer–there are a surprising lot. my favorite of the month was probably this dive bar I found on Broadway. It looked like the sketchiest shit possible and I was scared for my life (legit) as I crossed the parking lot. But once inside–ADORABLE. It was decorated in true STL/NOLA style with fleur de lis, alligators, mardi gras and creole decorations everywhere. a jazz band plaid out back. christmas light were hanging everywhere and the food was the most amazing creole delights to hit my lips. YUMM!

  1. You live in a beautiful spot. And that college looks so pretty. I never went to a school with the traditional greek houses. Even though I’d never join a sorority, it’d still be cool to party at one of those frat or sorority houses! We went once to Berkeley and Greek row and it was pretty intense!

  2. Yey, MO is growing on you!! lol. I was born and raised in MO so ya know… lol. The guys you’ll date in college was a fun read. And um… I think I want your job 🙂

  3. Read the 5 guys you will date post just now too funny! And what a busy half of the year with so many big transitions. Glad you are making friends and finding things to do sounds like things are going to keep being great for you. Thanks so much for recapping.
