Hello Ramblers! You guys have probably noticed that this week has revolved a lot around the environment and taking care of it. Y’all have probably also noticed that both Bailey and I are big fans of nature and very passionate about taking care of our planet. So, to continue talking about this very important topic, I’m going to talk about one of the biggest ways to save the Earth: the zero waste lifestyle.

So today I’m going to go on a bit of a tangent—so this is the warning if you’re not into protecting the environment, impacting climate change, or general tree hugging to back out now. In fact, if you don’t believe that we need to take a serious look in the mirror as a society and fix the mess we made; please do me a favor and pick up a real book.
You may be asking why is this important? It’s just a little weather isn’t it? So, what if our summers are warmer, there’s a few more hurricanes, maybe a couple less cuddly animals are roaming around…WRONG. Let me paint a picture for you.

Hey, hey Ramblers! Happy Sunday! I hope you guys are having an amazing weekend! I am currently chilling in my apartment and anxiously waiting for the Game of Thrones series finale with Chester curled up next to me. Speaking of Chester, my cat, let’s talk a little bit about how living with a pet in an apartment has been going!

Happy Friday, sorry I’m so behind, this week has been crazy. With friends graduating, my boyfriend moving back in, and about a hundred other things needing attention; I hope you understand! I am so excited for things to slow down when summer rolls around. As most of you know, I recently just turned 22 and just surpassed a year-to-date of being graduated from college. It’s kind of weird seeing how quickly a year goes by once you’re out of school, and to have so much changed and yet nothing at all has. I thought I would share a few pieces of advice, for any other young adults out there navigating this crazy world!
Enjoy 20 tips from a 20-something! Let me know what you think in the comments below.

What time is it?? Summertime! It’s our vacationnn… ok not really cause I’m still working, but at least I’m out of class! I hope you all are too! I am sipping a Bella Amari (aperol spritz in a can) from a wine glass and catching up on YouTube videos (I’m subscribed to a lot of vloggers, k? K). Luckily for me, almost all of the videos I’m catching up on our about decluttering, organizing, and getting your life together for a good summer. These videos are exactly what I needed to get my motivation back up for all the side projects I’ve been pushing aside because of school (photography, fitness, getting that side moolah). But before I go off on a tangent, let’s take a moment to look back at this first semester of graduate school and reflect on it.

Gosh it’s a busy time of year! With graduations, summer plans, and just about a thousand other things going on...it can be difficult to wrap your head around the concrete things still left to do! One of those major things that I’m sure is on a lot of your minds is scoring that summer internship or entry level job if you’re about to graduate college. Hopefully, you’ll find these tips helpful, and no fear, everyone finds a job eventually!

Happy Friday Jr. Ramblers! I am currently writing this blog post while sitting in a coffee shop in New York City! Can you believe it?? I definitely can’t! The fact that I am in New York City with Bailey and that while Bailey is at her conference, I am strolling around alone in the city and working (because yes, I still have to work on my research stuff) in various coffee shops is mind-blowing for my small-town brain. Even though Montréal is a big city and I do that kind of stuff all the time there, Montréal is still a very small city compared to the Big Apple. Whether I’m in a small town or a big city, though, dating still seems to be a struggle. But, looking back at everything that’s happened this year, I have definitely come a long way compared to one year ago. So, without further ado, let’s talk about what my dating life has been like since January.

I know we’re a bit behind schedule, things have been a bit crazy since both Ann and I are in New York this week! Usually this would be a Monday blog, but we Tuesday work too. I’m super excited for my New York trip, which I’ll blog about later on next week. In the meantime, though, this week is about living with your significant other.
My boyfriend, Tomas, is on a flight back from Italy as we speak, making a quick stop in Montana before coming down here next week. Now, this will be our third summer in a row living together, and we hope to permanently live together as soon as he graduates from MSU. Living with your SO can be hard, but in my opinion, it is the best thing ever. I love the summer time specifically for that reason, because living with Tomas is a true joy. Hopefully these helpful tips below will help you also find joy in living with your SO!

Salutations Ramblers! Anyone remember what book/ movie that’s from? That’s definitely a blast from the past, am I right? Before we begin, I want to apologize for posting this blog post behind schedule! I know this was supposed to be up yesterday, but you know, life happens. Anyhoo, today I’m going to list some very aesthetic places that are a blast from the past! Since I have spent a lot of time in Colorado and am continuing to explore Montréal, I will be including some places from both areas!

Happy Earth Day, Ramblers!
Please remember to do your part to take care of our planet. Even the smallest of things can make a large impact. I’m talking one meat-less meal a week, recycling, carpooling a few times to work, and planting more flowers. That seems pretty easy, right? You could also donate to an environmental cause! I donated to the Nature Conversancy today, since they’re matching all donations in support of Earth Day.
Sorry to get all tree-hugger preacher on you, but the environment is super important to me. And honestly, it should be super important to YOU too because we literally only have one home, and once that’s gone, it’s gone forever. Anyways, today’s blog is about something near and dear to my heart that is indeed related to our beautiful planet…and that is top National Parks to visit for your summer bucket list.
