Recent Peaks

Long time, no post! Between my sorority, Labor Day weekend, and school, I have been so busy enjoying every minute life has thrown at me that I haven't had a second to sit down and really reflect on all the happiness that has come my way. But I do love blogging, and I do love documenting my life, so here I am with tons of good news!

Other than being on the go nonstop, I've also been a little MIA because I've been stumped on what to blog about. I've been wanting to do solid, weekly posts, but everything I've thought of hasn't quite cut the mustard. Until now that is... On another blog of mine I used to do "Daily Peaks" where I would mention all the good things that I had done or that had happened to me that day. I don't like focusing on the negative, so I took a twist on the more popular "Highs & Lows" idea to make for an all-around more positive daily reflection. And I want to bring that post idea to Girl Meets World! Ever so often (hopefully once a week, but I don't want to commit myself to it just yet) I'm going to do a recap of all the awesome things going on in my life. So here are my most recent peaks:

  • I'm a Gamma Phi Beta! I already posted about it, but I'm still so happy to be part of Greek Life and this particular sisterhood that I had to mention it again.
  • And with a sorority comes tons of new girls to hang out with! I've already gone out with a few girls, and I have even more plans this week. Put all those plans on top of our Sisterhood Retreat this weekend and our New Member Retreat next weekend, and I've got myself a pretty solid social life. It's definitely a welcomed change compared to the past couple years.
  • I went home this past weekend for Labor Day, and while I was home my mom and I went shopping for any and all things kitchen related. This means I can finally start cooking! 
  • I dropped my News Reporting & Writing class, and even though this may seem like a bad thing it has definitely been one of my better decisions. I can now focus on doing well in my other classes, and my stress has gone way down. And the best part is that I'm still on track to graduate in two years. 
  • And last but most certainly not least, I have a boyfriend! You guys know I went to Germany this summer, but unless you're friends with me on Facebook you probably don't know about Bryan. (That's me and him in the picture above by the way.) Long story short, we met on the trip and have basically been inseparable ever since. And it all became official over the weekend! I'm not the type to really flaunt my relationship, so I doubt I'll be gushing about him all the time, but he's so awesome that I had to tell y'all about him!

Also, I want you guys to know I'm not just doing this for myself. I really hope this post (and all those to come) will encourage y'all to do your own version of "Recent Peaks." Whether you post them on your blog or simply think about them from time to time, I hope y'all can take a second to reflect on all the good things going on in your life. It can really change your outlook and will potentially make you a happier person. So give it a shot!

What are some good things that have happened to you recently?!
Comment on this post, and let me know!


  1. I'm generally happy for the first time in over two years. I'm still single, but I'm ok with it now. Everything is starting to work out for me, and I'm finally not consumed with finding anyone at all to be with. That's what's going good in my life today! :)

  2. I got to know you better at sisterhood retreat. And we should TOTALLY hang out more. :-)
