Coming Attractions: September

{A super-styling desktop background perfect for transitioning to fall, from Evelyn Hanson!}

I want to say that August was a doozie, because that's how it honestly felt, because we were running around all of the time... but honestly, August was spent almost entirely on vacation. Between spending a week in Sunriver, Oregon, with my family, to returning once again to the Happiest Place on Earth, for a week, as well, the majority of my time during this past month have been taking it easy with some of the people I love most.

Which means what's coming up next makes me the most spoiled lady in the world, because I love September! 

I'm already in the thick of preparations for Sorority Recruitment up here at the University of Washington, so expect lots of updates from me in the field, and same goes for when school actually starts up again on the 24th, with back-to-school study tips and notebook DIYs. I'm very excited about what this month is going to bring... and I hope you are, too!

these are a few of my favorite links

1. New school year, new school year resolutions (don't worry, a post will be coming up soon on that same topic)! While I'm still drafting out some of mine, I can certainly take inspiration from A Glitter Affair's "New Semester Resolutions." 

2. And speaking of those resolutions, I've got a pretty big one I'm planning for this year... and I'm feeling pretty inspired by College Prep's "Why You Should Write Your First Book Now"

3. A little bit out of the normal course of topic for the blog, I know, but this piece of slam poetry from Portland-based Brenna Twohy, called "Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them," takes an interesting stance on the porn industry by comparing it to her favorite fan fiction. 

4. I'm still recovering from our recent Disneyland trip - really, really recent... as in, a week ago! - and I think I'm finally starting to acclimate to Washington weather once again. Of course, it's videos like this spectacular '80s rendition of Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah helps. 

5. And yet, I'm still hungering for some of my favorite in-Park snacks. Thankfully, Buzzfeed compiled this list of 21 Disney Parks Recipes You Can Make at Home
