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.

Hello Ramblers! Anne here to give you some birthday wisdom now that I’ve turned 22 haha. I don’t know what it is about turning 22, but it feels like I’m more of a real adult now and that I should have my life together. Well, I do feel like a real adult, but I definitely still don’t feel like I have my shit together most days. Through the ups and downs that these 22 years have brought me, though, I have learned a couple things that help me stay happy and thriving. So, today, I will be sharing 22 little mottos to live your life by and, hopefully, make it easier.

Happy Spring, and happy birthday season for Anne and me over here! Along with us, many of our friends have birthdays coming up within the next few weeks, so it’s often a time that the money is low but the celebrations are high. In terms of best gifts to get your girl friends, 20 something pals, or for those friends who are about to graduate, I got you! See below and let me know what you think in the comments.

Howdy Ramblers! I hope everyone’s week is going well! I turned in my biggest assignment of the semester so I feel a little bit less stressed. I still have a ton of assignments and a final exam I’m not ready for, but at least it’s one more thing to check off the to-do list. I only have three more weeks until I am completely done with school and I cannot wait! Even though I’ve been working out pretty much everyday, I haven’t had time to go for a run outside in so long! Now that the weather is warming up (hopefully) and that school is coming to an end, I’m ready to get back into running my 10k’s and maybe even sign up for some future races!
So how do you get ready for a race so that you can hit your goal? Well, I figured I’d share a few tips so we can get ready together y’all!

So, today’s blog was supposed to be on running my first 5k, but well...time got away from me and I haven’t had the chance to sign up for one yet. I know, I know, no excuses, but to be fair I wasn’t expecting life to get as busy as it has! With the demands of working, wisdom teeth surgery, and a trip down to Jamaica, it put my running goals on pause. But that’s alright, because we’re jumping back into it, and the important thing is progress!

Happy Spring, Ramblers! I know it’s officially been Spring since March 20th, but there’s something about April that just makes everything seem so much more like Spring. The end of the semester is coming up, the layers of jackets are slowly coming off, and my motivation to keep working on all those New Year’s resolutions is coming back stronger than ever. As exciting as April is, though, it is also very, very busy time with all the final exams, assignments, social events, birthdays (there are a lot of April babies, me included), and everything in between. One thing that keeps me calm during all this chaos is Sping cleaning, mentally and in the house!

Long time no see, Ramblers!
I took a much needed week off, sunning it up in Jamaica with the Gannett family. It was absolutely breathtaking and 100% needed to get me back in the right mindset to tackle Spring head on.
Springtime is one of my favorite times of the year. In the corporate world, we’re wrapping up Quarter One, and in the school world, the spring semester is coming to a finale. It’s time for that final push before summer, a rebirth so-to-speak of your best you. And “Spring Cleaning” can mean much more than revitalizing your closest! As you blossom alongside the flowers and embrace the warmer days to come, spring is the perfect time to declutter your life.

Hey, hey, hey Ramblers! Hope you are all doing well! I don’t know about you guys, but it is finally starting to warm up in Montréal. We are finally seeing some positive C temperatures and sun! I am so excited for Spring and Summer, but before I can go out and have fun, I, unfortunately, have A TON of papers, presentations, and one final exam! Besides a lot of coffee, one thing that I am going to utilize in order to get everything done is to effectively use my strengths and personality type.

Welcome Ramblers! I hope you guys enjoyed our Tarot and Horoscope Podcast last night because we had a lot of fun making it! Even though we don’t base our lives on neither Tarot nor horoscopes, we do think they are very fun to participate in! I also enjoy using Tarot as a way to meditate and I really appreciate how pretty Tarot card designs can be. Anyways, since Bailey talked about the history of horoscopes earlier this week, I figured I would research the history of Tarot and share it with you all!

Are you a Virgo? Pisces? Or maybe a stubborn Taurus like myself? No matter what you are, I think we can all agree that there is a bit of guilty pleasure in reading your horoscope to find out more about “you.” I think majority of people are somewhat narcissistic in the sense that we all love to hear about ourselves, talk about ourselves, and see ourselves. Hence, the Instagram culture, selfie obsession, and endless Buzzfeed quizzes telling you what type of cupcake you are.
Horoscopes fall into this category of self-interest, but I often feel they get a bad reputation that’s not deserved! Today we’re going to debunk whether horoscopes are real or fake, and the history behind them.
