I’m going to make this a quick post, since I’m at work and writing this in an email to conceal that I’m doing PXC stuff! HA!
I just finished reading Scrappy Little Nobody by the being that is Anna Kendrick. I freaking love her. Throughout this book I was comforted by her honesty and soul-sister connection that I felt towards her. I’m pining for her friendship, so I will cut out her face from a magazine and glue it to my vision board.
Let's start a book club! This month I'm reading Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick. Next month (April) we'll officially kick things off with Unfiltered by Lily Collins.
Join in the fun!

Hey Pixie Chick!
It’s Monday, and you know what that means! No, not the dragging start of your week: Motivational Music Monday!
I’m so psyched to share this with you. For the past few months I kept track of my Go-To-Songs that gets me pumped and motivated. Sometimes I’m in that high energy mood and surf those good vibes and other times I know I’m in a funk and tuning in lifts me up. Music is an awesome cure-all!
There are some oldies but all are goodies! The vibe for this playlist is to get S*** done! So put on some headphone and Get Your Dream On!
The college years can be some of the best of your life. They’re filled with learning, friends, travel- what more could a girl want? College can be tricky, though, because while you’re an “adult,” you’re not yet living with the responsibilities that are bound to come later in life.
Take your “job,” for example. Your main job is going to class. We all know that college classes are generally challenging, but the schedule is certainly not bad! A couple of hours of classes per day and the rest of the day to study and have fun? It’s a schedule that feels like a vacation to a 40+ hour/week employee! Let’s now look at housing. You’re likely living in a dorm or a house off campus, filled with excitement at every turn (if you’re the type to look for it). If you’re lucky, your parents may be footing with the bill, but even if they’re not, you’re not likely to see a monthly bill or get any surprise bills for maintenance while you’re in school. And there’s the food. What pleasure it is to go to the dining hall or order in using your student card whenever you want to. No trips to the grocery store are required in college, unless you like to go (you know, like for the supplies for your next party).
And this is not to say that college kids have it too good. The college years are the last years before what I consider to be true adulthood. You should be using the time to explore, grow, and figure out who you want to be (although, if you’re like me, this process will continue far beyond the early 20’s!). That being said, I believe it IS fair to say that most college kids (not all) often leave college not knowing a whole lot about financial responsibilities and budgeting.
