Movie Night Anyone?

Hello Lovlies!

Winter is Upon Us

20170123_164447Hello all!

I’ve just gotten back to dark and gloomy Pittsburgh from my glorious and sunny Florida and am attempting to slowly readjust to a cave like environment. I will say that the first few days back were quite a hassle with moving back into my dorm and scrambling to get my life together as classes began. For some freshman here this is their first Pittsburgh winter and as such  I feel that it’s my duty to divulge some of my tips and tricks on how to stay happy, healthy, and positive as it gets darker outside.

  1. Invest in a therapy light!-These lights are a life saver especially for those from a brighter climate such as Florida. The lights range in price from around 30-50 dollars and can work wonders. Sit in front of it for 30 minutes and let the light work it’s magic. Just be careful if it’s on your desk; I suggest wearing sunnies to avoid blinding yourself.
  2. If you are from a humid climate such as myself, I would also invest in a humidifier. Preferably a cool one that changes colors (It’s the little things). It gets rid of static in the room and keeps your skin from reaching alligator status. The humidity also helps loosen all that gunk in your nose when you have a cold.
  3. If you are feeling down in the dumps try to hang out with a friend/friends. The social interaction alone will significantly increase your mood. If none of said friends are available find a crowded area such as a cafe or a park and the human interaction should help alleviate some of the cold weather blues.
  4.  See if your school has some sort of care center that has therapists and people you can talk to. Sometimes the best medicine is to talk it out and let others know how you are feeling.
  5. Create a playlist with some songs that make you feel happy it doesn’t matter what they are and play them in the background if you are just hanging around or doing some work. The music will remind you of the kind of happiness you can feel when not down in the dumps and likely lift your spirits.
  6.  Get rid of toxic people in your life. Granted, I know this is easier said than done but often times when all else fails it may be time to evaluate your choice in friendships. Stick by the ones who have your back even in your darkest moments.

 

Yours truly,

Aphrodite

Florida to Pittsburgh: The birth of a blogger.

Now, according to the many people I talk to, I am insane for traveling away from my sandy beaches and warm weather into the frigid north for school. Frankly I don’t understand why more people don’t venture out of their comfort zones.Speaking as someone with a year under her belt it has been a wonderful experience for me to move away from home and start anew. It was a difficult process regardless flying the coop…but there will be more on that later.I started this blog as a bit of an outlet to be creative and to rant on the trials and tribulations of being a college student. I have always been the one people come to for advice on their love lives, music choices, college tips, and just on life in general. In my many internet travels I have never been able to find a blog that answers the hard hitting questions on anything and everything so I hope to provide more of an insight into the world of the modern college girl. So please, let me know if you have any questions and stay tuned!

 

Yours truly,

Aphrodite
