I Can’t Be Stressed Anymore

Hey lovelies,

This week I wanted to be more real and personal about my life and all the things happening. I have told y’all so many times that I’ve been really stressed out with college, senior year and family things. Today I specifically wanted to talk about college.

I applied to 6 colleges last semester: SMU , UT Austin, Texas State, A&M University, TCU, and Trinity University. Since the beginning of this semester I’ve been hearing back from colleges and it has been stressing me out beyond belief. Texas State was the first school I got accepted to and it was my safety school, fortunately I got automatic admission. I got rejected from Trinity, capped from UT Austin (shoutout to UTcapped19) and Gatewayed from A&M. Recently I found out that I got waitlisted from my dream school which is SMU.

I’ve been very stressed about what to do for colleges and what I plan on doing with my future past schooling. If y’all don’t know I’m planning on studying marketing and pre-law in college.

That’s about all the information I have to share with y’all today. I’m really hoping that I’ll be doing another one of these close and personal talks again. I want to start sharing more about my life with y’all because I promised that I’d tell y’all all about my senior year. Let me know if there’s any post I should do!

Love Y’all,

How to Stay Motivated on Bad Days

Hey lovelies,

Welcome back to my blog y’all! These past couple weeks I have been crazy busy and stressed out with school and just thinking about my future. Therefore, I’ve been having some really rough days and needed to learn how to continue being motivated. Here I have some tips on how to stay motivated when you’re having a bad day.

1. Don’t Pressure Yourself

If you’re having a bad day just accept that your day isn’t going your way and continue on. You goal shouldn’t be to force yourself to be happy but rather to just simply continue through the day one step at a time.

2. Relax

If you’re having a bad day don’t stress yourself out more than needed by doing stressful activities. Instead, go to a place that will let you just escape from everything and sit relax. Go on a walk through the park, have a spa day, and have a movie night.

3. Take Control

When I have a bad day it’s usually over things I can’t control like traffic that leads you to being late to a meeting or the weather not being so nice. Take control of you life with little things and it always helps me feel better.

4. Reward Yourself

At the end of a bad day I always reward myself with a spa day or some extra YouTube time. It’s important to reward yourself for going through a whole day and staying positive and pushing though.

5. Keep Laughing

Don’t ever stop laughing. Laughing just makes you happier (facts).

I hope you found these tips useful and that y’all enjoyed reading about these ways to better a bad day. I hope y’all are all having an amazing day and I’m so excited to continue posting weekly and keeping you updated with my senior year.

Love Y’all,

Vivian

Senior Pictures

Hey lovelies,

Welcome back to day 10 of blogmas! As I was thinking about what to post today I wanted to do something a little more personal. I told you guys that I would take you through my senior year of high school with me and so I wanted to show you some of my senior pictures. I do still have more pictures coming up but as of right now I thought this would be cute.

I hope you enjoyed this post, I love posting more personal things like this cause in blogging you don’t really get to see me or anything so this is kinda my way of doing that. Also I wanted to give you a heads up that over the next week my blog post will be more simple and shorter because I have finals week coming up.

Love Y’all,

Vivian

Letter to Santa

Hey lovelies,

Today I thought I’d give a little flashback to last year. This is the exact same post from last year but I think it’s extremely important for everyone to hear this.

So this year I thought a good thing to address during the holidays is Santa. I’m pretty sure most of y’all have heard of this man who wears a red suit, has a white beard and rides his magical sleigh pulled by magical reindeer around the world in one night to give gifts to children for Christmas. Many of y’all who are reading this will have heard things like “Santa isn’t real” and “It’s just your parents”, you know that I say to that? I say that you need to not, people have the ability to believe whatever they would like to believe in.

I know what most of you are saying, “You are too old to be believing in this”.

I’m 18 years old, I’m a senior in high school and I believe in Santa, I believe that Santa isn’t just one person, Santa is many people coming together to keep the spirit of Christmas alive. Santa is your parents every time they put gifts under the tree. Santa is your parent’s parents and their parents, and maybe one day you. Santa consist of people who try and bring joy to children around the world for the holidays. Santa isn’t one person, he’s an idea, the idea that Christmas is about sacrifice and love.

So with this here’s my letter to Santa,

Thank you, thank you so much mom and dad, thank you moms and dads, for showing me and all the other children out there that there’s so much more to this holiday than getting gifts, Christmas is shown by the process that it took for that gift to get under the tree in the morning. So thank you, thank you so much.

Love Y’all,

Vivian

Holidate Ideas

Hey lovelies,

First I want to apologize for not posting anything yesterday. I got sick, fell asleep and didn’t remember to post anything. I’ll make up for that by posting 2 blog posts on one of the days next week. Second, we almost completed a full week of blogmas! Even though I didn’t completely succeed with that I thought it wouldn’t hurt to congratulate myself for a bit and plan for a date with bae— a HOLIDATE! Therefore here we had an idea for blogmas day 7. Today I’m gonna share with you 7 holidate ideas in honor of the 7 days of blogmas we’ve completed.

1. Build a Gingerbread House

This one has been on my bucket list for forever and for some reason I’ve just never gotten to doing it. Building a gingerbread house together would be so cute and something straight out of Pinterest thought. Definitely tell me if I should vlog it with Jorge.

2. Go watch the Nutcracker

This is just a classic Christmas thing to do and how adorable would it be to go with a bae. This would be perfect to take your families before a group dinner to meet each other’s families.

3. Have a Photoshoot

I’m imagining snow and cute matching outfits with little beanies and snow boots and mistletoe and some cute couple Instagram pics.

4. Dress Up

By this I really meant dress up all cute and then go out to get some fast food somewhere. I mean I’m in high school so we don’t exactly have the budget to eat like we dress.

5. Decorate a Tree

In Austin I know we have 360 which is a road filled with evergreen trees. Every single year around this time people from all around Austin come to decorate a bunch of the trees.

6. Look at Christmas Lights

I just want to drive around and look at Christmas lights together in a neighborhood. I love Christmas lights and decorations and so I feel like just driving around and seeing them together will be the perfect way to relax and talk with each other.

7. Cook Together

If one thing describes me and my boyfriend’s relationship is food. As I also mentioned earlier we’re also some broke high schoolers so therefore the best option— cook food together.

I hope y’all liked some date ideas for the holiday season. I’m hoping to be able to do all of these this year with my boyfriend. If y’all liked these ideas as much as I do then comment down below which ones you like and be sure to continue adding to my list. I will be back tomorrow with another blogmas post!

Love Y’all,

Vivian
