Well thank you senior survival, i see what ya did there

Throwback to when this was an advisable option for footwear ☀️

Sorry for the total takeover of my Instagram pictures! They are definitely a nice addition, adding to the collections of adventures, but there is very little else, so my apologies. :) School has started up and thus…life has gotten busier. But so far it’s been amazing, senior year is looking to be a great year. I’m surrounded by the best people I could hope to have in my life, and so many adventures have happened already. Soccer has been great, I’m wearing my bruises with pride! I just got back from our weeklong Senior Survival trip, which was amazing. My class finally bonded, and it was so great to get outside and be active, and get to know everyone outside of the school environment, in a relaxed way. So that was great. More things besides Instagram pictures are on the way, there’s plenty saved in drafts. Have a lovely afternoon, and rest of the weekend!


The daily grub for my week in the wild, thank you Quakers

If only I could’ve captured all the gorgeous views there were this week…but the time I got to spend with my awesome class outdoors was definitely worth the lack of electronics. You guys are my family and best friends, I had so much fun! These seniors survived…now let’s survive the rest of high school 😄

Made up some granola bars…now Im completely prepared for Senior Survival!! Is the Class of 2015 going to survive…or thrive? Only time will tell…🚣🚣🚣

Yoga for the splits !

The Science of Happiness: What data & biology reveal about our mood

While true happiness may have a different definition to each of us, science can give us a glimpse at the underlying biological factors behind happiness. From the food we eat to room temperature, there are thousands of factors that play a role in how our brains work and the moods that we are in. Understanding these factors can be helpful in achieving lasting happiness.

"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music." - Albert Einstein

Shake it off, shake it off!

"Maybe the only thing each of us can see is our own shadow. Carl Jung called this his shadow work. He said we never see others. Instead we see only aspects of ourselves that fall over them. Shadows. Projections. Our associations. The same way old painters would sit in a tiny dark room and trace the image of what stood outside a tiny window, in the bright sunlight. The camera obscura. Not the exact image, but everything reversed or upside down." -chuck palahniuk
