Guess Who’s Back?!

Hello, hello again! I’m back from New York. Well I’ll admit, I’ve been back since Sunday evening but I’ve been jetlagged. (They’re only an hour ahead but shhh.) Anyway Im back here in Minnesota and it is HOT HOT HOT!! I’ve been sweating bucket loads on my runs and just being outside in general, its madness! 

My trip was fun as well. My main reason was to see my sister graduate from RIT, which she did, and to help her move out, which I did. So that’s all really. I’ll let the pictures do the talking for me 😀

Got lei’d!! With a lei. My sisters friend is from Hawaii and had these made by a lei-maker-person-friend. Smelled so good and I loved the white 🙂

Minneapolis –> Rochester flight

Honestly the best dessert I’ve ever had. This was at Carrabbas, it was my first time there. Delicious!

The incredible sunset (taken with an iphone 5, yes really!) Coming back from a look around my sisters new apartment for the Fall

Got a little bored on the flight back home, so I did a little photo editing. I used this awesome app called PICLAB. Go check it out, guys!

Still bored.

Like I said. This was my favorite. We were descending, about 20 minutes away from Minneapolis-St. Paul International, and we were in between the clouds. Absolute money shot.

That’s all for now! Bye!

Summer Break

I’m still here! I was MIA yesterday because I’ve been actually enjoying my break. This time last year I would have already finished season 2 of Workaholics. Anyway, I’ve been in the sun almost all day, everyday, and it’s been soo nice! The weather is finally looking up here in Minnesota. We’ve been stuck in the 60s (which I consider hot, to be honest) but now we’re up in the 70s to low 80s! The sun was scorching my back earlier today. The reason I’ve been out so much is because my dad and I are building a pergola for my graduation party, which is a garden sun shade structure, and boy is it tough work! I’ll definitely post a picture when it’s all done 🙂 

Anyway, that’s all for now. My whole body has been aching from long days of working, but at least school is out! Oh! Also, I’m off to New York this time next week. Hopefully I’ll have some more exciting news to share with you all 🙂 

Until next time! Julie xx

I’m. Done. With. School.

No, not like URG IM SOOO DONE WITH SCHOOL! I actually am done. I finished high school! 😀 *celebratory dance*

If you read my previous post, you’ll have found that I was in the midst (now completed) (college) final exams. But I just said ^^high school^^ up there. Well, I feel like I’m leaving out a part of me if I don’t explain this whole thing. I am a senior in high school and a PSEO student in college. A PSEO student. I would say college student, but whenever I say that aloud someone always goes, “well you’re not technically in college nag nag nag, etc…” So now I just call (or called) myself a PSEO student. If you don’t know what that is it stands for Post Secondary Education Option. It’s for juniors and seniors in high school who are super smart. I’m kidding. Well.. No, no, I’m kidding. Anyway, I took college classes at my local community college for free! And I earned credit, too! Which I hope to put to use when I’m a “real” college student. Exciting! Well, now I feel like I shared a part of myself that needed sharing. 

What I was getting to was that I’m done with school and out for summer. Last summer I sat on my bum on the computer almost everyday. I cringe every time I think about that…. Ugh. So this summer I pledge to do something everyday! Like watch a different season of a TV show for each day of the week. No, I’m only joking again 😉 If you’re still reading this, thanks! It’s not everyday you want to be reminded of coursework I imagine. Looking forward to owing the government a lot of money! Jokes. 

What about you guys? Did college make you pull your hair out? How would you describe the overall experience in ONE WORD? I wanna know! 🙂

My First Post! HELLO! :)

Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Julianna, hence the URL, but I go by Julie. I am a 18 year old girl from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I am attending UMD (that’s University of Minnesota-Duluth) and plan to major in …. well I don’t know, but I figure I have time to sort that all out later, right?

Right…? 

I enjoy managing a blog and entertaining an audience, so click around and waste some time.

This blog will be a variation of all sorts of things, but mainly all things food and travel, woohoo! And stuff about me. It’s my blog after all! hahaImage
