10 Tips to Save Time in the Morning

waking up, morning person, morning routine

Have you noticed a theme on the blog lately?? I’m very centered around putting in minimal effort in the mornings… (If you missed Monday’s post, it’s all about what to wear when you “just can’t”.) I guess it’s just the chill of winter, the lack of sleep, and the adjustment of going back to school that’s making me so lazy and lethargic, ya feel? Anyway, I thought it would be helpful to share my best tips for saving time in the morning, both to relay some wisdom to all of you as well as remind myself how to be more efficient during my morning routine (I want those extra five minutes of sleep just as badly as you do!). So without further ado, here are my tips and some corresponding photos taken properly in the dark, before the sun has risen. It always drives me nuts when TV shows portray kids getting ready for school with the sun shining brightly outside. That is just not realistic, unless they don’t start school until 9 am or it’s very close to summer! It’s almost always still dark (or mostly dark) when I wake up… Ok, rant done now, here are the tips for real.

Who’s with me this Monday? Who wants to be comfy as possible without looking like a slob? Don’t worry, I know you guys are silently nodding yes. Continue reading “What to Wear When You “Just Can’t””

College Haikus to Spice Up Your Monday

Hey y’all! Coming at ya’ today at 12:30 in the morning…nervous laughter. Let’s just say, the weekend was not as productive as I had hoped. Anyone else? Today’s blog post is a compilation of relatable Haiku poems summing up my college experience at the moment. Whenever I use Haikus for a blog post, it’s a desperate last-minute attempt to entertain you because currently I’m completely uninspired and out of ideas (maybe it’s just the fact that I have to pry my eyelids open again every five minutes). I’m really selling this blog post, I know. But to be fair, the last time I published a blog post about rainy day Haikus, it was very popular, so I’m hoping for the best…? That’s called operant conditioning, folks. Woohoo for my psych studying. And now, to put an end to these rambles, the poems: Continue reading “College Haikus to Spice Up Your Monday”
