Talk About It Tuesdays 5: Month Long Blogging

Everyday Enthusiasm Day 30: Talk About It Tuesday

Talk About It Tuesdays

Well guys, today is the last day of Everyday Enthusiasm. This means that I successfully blogged every single day of September. Despite the concerts, the moving, the complete laziness that is me on summer vacation, I managed to create new content every day. And that’s amazing.

It’s TAIT Tuesday and I really just want to talk about the process of blogging for a whole month. Because a lot of you have never blogged and probably don’t know the whole deal behind creating new content every day. It’s not some willy nilly process that it looks like (because I’m aware that my style is nonexistent, but there is effort that goes in.)Read More

Talk About It Tuesdays 4: The Latest Thing

Everyday Enthusiasm Day 23: Talk About It Tuesday

Talk About It Tuesdays

G’day Enthusiasts! It’s Tuesday, which means it’s the day I move into my new apartment! But before I go into all of that, it’s time to talk about stuff on Talk About It Tuesday!

This week I want to talk about something that’s been the talk around the world: the iPhone 6.

Everyone is focused on Apple’s latest creation. Phone stores are overcrowded as everyone tries to purchase the next big thing. Our culture is focused on getting the newest, coolest thing and we must have it right when it is released. And that’s insane.

Talk About It Tuesdays 3: Packing

Everyday Enthusiasm Day 16: Talk About It Tuesday

Talk About It Tuesdays

G’day Enthusiasts! How are we feeling today? Are we feeling as lazy as I am? I swear that all of my motivation has drained out of me as I realize how much has to be done to move into my apartment next week. It’s insane to think that I’ll be back in Eugene next week, and starting school the next. Where did the summer go?!

And since we’re on the topic of moving, I guess this is as good a segue as I am going to get towards discussing packing. Whether it be packing my suitcase for a weekend trip or packing up boxes and boxes to move to another place, packing is something we’ve all had to do multiple times. And despite the fact that I’ve made tens – if not hundreds – of packing lists for various reasons, I still don’t enjoy packing.Read More

Talk About It Tuesdays 2: Donations, Awareness & Action

Everyday Enthusiasm Day 9: Talk About It Tuesdays

Talk About It Tuesdays

As you know, the AlS Ice Bucket Challenge is a huge deal right now, even as we get to the tail end of it. The point of the challenge was to dump ice water on your head and donate to the charity, nominating several other friends to do the same in 24 hours. The point of these challenges is to raise awareness for the charity so that they can receive donations. It is not about looking fearless covered in ice water.

You can watch my ice bucket challenge here (I ended up doing it twice). Yes, I do talk with my hands a lot.Read More

Talk About It Tuesdays 1: Veggies & Low Carb

Everyday Enthusiasm Day 2: Talk About It Tuesdays

Talk About It Tuesdays

On Talk About It Tuesdays, I like to discuss topics that we’re all going to have different feelings on. This week we’re going to discuss going vegetarian and low carb.

Last week I decided to see if I could go without meat and with little carbs in my diet. And I did it. And I loved it.

Growing up in SoCal, the usual meal of my childhood was tritip steak, bread, and salad. Every time we have guests for dinner this is what we have. Which means that meat and bread are kind of my staple foods. And eliminating them from my diet always seemed impossible because what else was I supposed to eat?
