So I started blogging again in May this year, and I have been looking for the perfect way to schedule blog posts, tweets, Facebook posts, etc. all from one platform, and I just couldn’t find it.
But then, when I saw that Madison Wetherill pinned one of her old posts on why CoSchedule is her favourite, I knew I had to check it out! I downloaded the plugin, created an account, and I was instantly hooked.
As I’m sure all of you know, on July 18th I went from being Rebecca Gregoire to Rebecca Lindenbach. It was the most amazing day of my life, even though wedding planning was less than fun for me. I am so in love with my husband, and the day was everything I could have possibly dreamed of.
There were so many things that went perfectly at my wedding. I made the jewelry and they all looked amazing on the girls, I got to get so much precious time with Connor’s family, who all live in BC, which is a plane ride away for us, and my bridesmaids and I got to spend so much time just goofing off together.
However, the stuff that went well really isn’t all that interesting to hear about, and being a bride I was so worried that things would go wrong.
My baby sister just turned 18! It’s insane thinking that she’s an adult now, considering 18 means she’s an adult now, and I don’t really like that she’s going to be able to do adult things now. It’s just strange.
It got me thinking back to when I first turned 18. Eighteen was a big year for me–it was the year that I moved out for school, got my first full-time job, figured out what I want to do with the rest of my life, and met my now-husband, Connor. But 18 wasn’t all good for me–some parts were really hard, actually. I had my heart broken. I started struggling with anxiety. I was extremely lonely when I first moved out.
I did pretty well that year but there are definitely some things that I wish I had known ahead of time. So, Katie, this one’s for you: here are 18 things I wish I knew when I was your age–moving out, just turned an adult, and kind of scared with all the change.
Welcome to the second instalment of my monthly insta-updates! In case you missed last month’s, this is a time where I update what I’ve been up to by sharing what I’ve been doing on instagram! I find it fun, so I decided to do it again!
School is starting up again soon, and I’m already excited for it! I know it’s strange, but I absolutely love school. I love going to class, writing exams, researching, everything. A lot of that, though, is because I’ve found ways to make studying and student life easier and less stressful than they normally are.
A bit part of making life go smoothly is utilizing the tools available. I personally don’t like bringing my laptop to school unless it’s exam season, and I was lucky enough to get an iPad for Christmas my first year. Since then, I’ve completely customized it to be my own super-school-tablet filled with amazing college apps, and I use it every day to take notes, write assignments, and make sure that I’m staying healthy! All things that are important in student life!
So here are the college apps that I personally love, and what have worked to keep me organized and good to go!
