An Artsy February Round-up

So February happened fast, amirite?

It was a small-but-mighty month for me. A lot of stuff happened in a quick amount of time. And not just because I was lucky, but also because I made stuff happen. In short, February was a month of being a #girlboss.


  • I wrote my first and second posts for The Lala (a blog for college age women that explores everything from fashion to studying tips to feminism).  
  • I girlbossed my way into a job as a writer for my university newspaper. And by that I mean I just asked. But hey, asking for stuff is hard, right? It requires a bit of believing in yourself. ;) 
  • I went to a photography meet up in Indianapolis that I heard about via Instagram. This felt pretty freaky and outside my comfort zone because a.) I only knew about it through the internet (the internet still only feels about 45% real to me sometimes) and b.) I thought it would be a bunch of scary professional photographers. There were some, but it was mostly just a bunch of guys with hipster beards who kept to themselves. I went with two of my friends and took photos of them as they danced around Laurel Hall. It was fun. 
  • I've also been being pretty politically active this month, which is always empowering. My friends and I went to another rally/ protest thing (pictured above), and I've also been putting more effort into calling my senators and representatives about the things that I think are important. More about that here.


Here are the things I've accomplished from my 'bucket list' this month:

Donated money to a cause that's important to me ✔️

This always feels good! I'm not a girl with a whole lotta extra cash, but I made an effort to donate ten dollars here and here.  

Tweeted. At least once.  ✔️

 Is this a weird thing to put on a bucket list? Yes. But you know what else is weird? My irrational fear of tweeting. I want to be more active on twitter so I can explore the world of blog twitter chats, because I've always been too anxious to venture over there. Btw if you want to follow me on twitter to watch me stumble around through the darkness of hashtags and retweets, here I am. I'll follow you back if you're a fellow blogger gal. 

Got a job.  ✔️

The newspaper reporter job I mentioned above is barely a job, but it's paid so I'm counting it. It's almost like I'm a real, paid writer now. *dramatic hair flip*

I like doing these round-up things because they remind me how much I actually accomplish in a month... on a day to day basis I always feel like an unproductive slob, but somehow I still manage to do cool and fun things. That's encouraging, right? 

Okay friends, that was my month. A month of leaping without looking and trying stuff that was a tad bit scary. Also a lot of donut eating and thrift store shopping and lack-of-sleeping. Just the way I like it. ;) 

Have a great (rest of) March!

  8. Congrats girl!! Anything is a great achievement if it's part of our bucket list, not matter what. Moving out of your comfort zone sounds amazing, we should do that more often!! Great things happen out of our comfort zone! February was full of changes for me, I moved to another city and came back to my blog as a full-time blogger for now. It's been pretty exciting. Just found your blog and I love it! I'm now following you via Bloglovin' and Twitter.
