Sophomore Year Recap

While it doesn’t quite feel like it yet, it’s officially my summer vacation! Several of my professors decided to make our finals optional at the last minute, so the school year ended on an anticlimactic note (otherwise I would have been working on final projects until 11:59 tonight!). It’s been a long and crazy year, so I’m extremely excited to finally be able to relax and focus more time on the blog and my research job. Yes, it wasn’t quite the school year I imagined, but there were still so many great memories that I wanted to reflect on today, as well as talk about my classes. I don’t usually do college-related posts, so I hope you enjoy! Continue reading “Sophomore Year Recap”

So much so, in fact, that I keep meticulous records of all my clothing items and constantly evaluate a cost per wear analysis for each piece, saving it in a massive Excel spreadsheet. For me, I think of it as “My Clothing Log”, but my close friends refer to it as simply “The Spreadsheet” (and yes, you have to say it in a dramatic voice). I’ve been maintaining my Excel spreadsheet for close to four years now, and in that time I have logged every piece of clothing or accessory I’ve bought/received, how much the item cost, where it was from, and at least three ways to style it in an outfit. Yes, I admit I have a bit of an addiction… Continue reading “My Obsession with Cost Per Wear and Excel Spreadsheets”
