Friday Five - Music Edition

This week I'm going to give you my 5 current favorite songs I've been listening to...

1. Can't stop, won't stop grooving

 Shake It Off by Taylor Swift

Oh Taylor, she knows how to put out a song and kill it. I cannot wait for the album, it's going to be so different from her old stuff but different can be good.

2. Jammin' to some old Alabama with you, baby

Laying right here naked in my bed
I'm just doing my thing
You love it when I sing
Burnin' It Down by Jason Aldean

Okay, I love this song. There is something about this song, I think it's super sexy. I don't know. I highly suggest a listen!!!

3. Aww no, Conway and George Strait 
Never did it this way
Back in the old days
Aww y'all, we ain't a cliché 
That ain't no way 
To treat a lady 

Girl In A Country Song by Maddie & Tae

Okay this song is hilarious and such a funny take on brocountry... These girls are going places.

4. She might've let you hold her hand in school, but I'mma show you how to graduate

Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj


If you want to really jam out and look like a fool this is the song you are looking for. I love it! 

5. We could straight up blame it on the whiskey, 
you ain't gotta wake up and miss me, no, 
I hope you get lonely tonight

Hope You Get Lonely by Cole Swindell

Gah this song is perfect in so many ways. I just love driving around and singing this at the top of my lungs.

If you can't tell I'm really into country lately. I love me some country, but I love everything so you could very well see something completely opposite in a week or two!

Organized? Hilarious

I appear to be organized at the beginning of the semester, but it takes A LOT of effort for me to continue to be. I struggled the first couple of semesters back in school because I had never worked full time and go to school full time. Then to make matters worse, I hadn't been in school for like 3 years. So, there was a lot of trial and error with finding a strategy that works best for me and that really hurt me in the long run. So I spent the last year searching Pinterest and finding different ways to stay organized. All of these ideas are not mine, I'll link all the original posts for you to see their way of doing things because some I have changed to fit me and my schedule.

The first is my planner. I have a gorgeous Lilly planner, however when I first got it I wasn't sure exactly how to use it. I was constantly forgetting to put things in it or just not using it at all. Last spring I really committed myself to using it the best way possible for me. I did a lot of research on how people use theirs and I found a system for me. COLOR CODE EVERYTHING! If everything has a certain color then you should be able to see the color and know what you have to do. I use flair pens for this. I like that they are bright and bold and they write amazingly. I use these a lot when studying as well. At the beginning of each I go through and put anything that's due that month in the monthly view with their designated pen color. I also go through and I go through the daily views and write in each class. That way when the teacher is spouting out random things at the end of class I don't have to worry about finding the certain color it's already done.

This is my weekly view with my flair pens.

This is my monthly view with my color coded assignments.

The other thing that I do at the beginning of the semester is go through the syllabus from each class. This takes some time but in the long run it helps to see what's going on through out the semester. I make two spreadsheets: 1. Readings 2. Assignments.
1. Readings: I have a hard time knowing when to read things and by when. I go through each class and figure out what chapters we are on and when. I also color code these with their special color so I can pin point what's going on.
2. Assignments: if you have ever looked at your syllabus then you can see in that jumble you can hardly pin point a test or paper and when they are due. This helps with that scenario a lot!


This my spreadsheet, it is far too long to show the whole thing. This kind of gives a general idea. 

Binders and notebooks. Why do you need both? Some don't, me I do. I keep hard copies of my syllabus that way if something is changed I can mark it ASAP and make my changes on my spreadsheet at home to reprint. I also keep all copies of my power points in my binders and any notes I type up. I also color code these. If you can tell, I love color coding things.

We will see how long it takes me to fall off the bandwagon of organization, but I hope it sticks around!

First Week Recap

Okay, someone explain to me how it was Labor Day and it was hotter than the whole month of August? Dear Mother Nature, are you confused??

Anywho, I cannot believe I have already been in school a whole week. I also cannot believe it is my last fall semester. I think this semester is going to be interesting. Of my five classes, three of them involve group projects! I hate group projects, but I am incredibly lucky to work with Hayley (she is amazing, check her out) in two of those groups! My school schedule and work schedule is looking quite promising.


9 a.m. - Managerial Skills Development

This is a class with Miss Hayley! We were thrown into a group with others, it shall be interesting.

10-11 Break time!

This is an hour break that me and Hayley usually use to talk blogs and youtube videos. You know a social media recap.

11 a.m. - Business Stats 2

This class is pretty much self explanatory.

Then I head to work from 1-9 pm.


I try to be at school by 9 a.m. to have some time to do some reading, blogging or to watch some shows (lately it's been Nashville since this show is AMAZING!). I like having some extra time to do some things I wasn't able to get to do the night before.

11 a.m. - Financial Management

Another group project class, in which we have to pick a company and decide to purchase stock from the company. Joy! I am the only Admin/Management major amongst 5 Accounting people. It'll be interesting. So far we've only learned the time value of money, which I learned in Real Estate last semester so I'm doing okay in the class thus far.

12:30 p.m. - Social Entrepreneurship

Before taking this class I am pretty sure I have never spelt the word entrepreneurship. It is also the hardest word for me to spell! Between that and convenience, it would look like I couldn't spell! I wasn't sure exactly what this class was before, okay I lie, I apparently had an extremely different idea of what this class was. However, I have it with Hayley and we are in a group together. Our group is working to help find a solution for a homeless need. We are going out to interview some different homeless people around campus. It's going to be very interesting.

3:30 p.m. - Managing People In Organizations

This class has been rather boring. I can't pay attention long enough, if my life depended on it. Not to mention I don't have any friends in the class. However, there is one of those people in class, you know the people who have something to say about EVERYTHING! It drives me crazy.

I pull the rest of my hours on Saturday and Sunday. My main goal of the semester is to be in bed by 10:30 and asleep before midnight. I've done pretty well so far and I hope to continue it, which is why I am rapping this up now.

Goodnight and I hope everyone has a good week at school!
