Little Discoveries

If you've been following along on my SnapChat adventures recently (MikkSalamatin - go follow me!), then you know that this past week has quite literally been "Hell Week". Yesterday alone, I had three exams, three meetings, a career fair to attend, and an event to help run.

I have traversed the whole nine yards in terms of sleep deprivation, sessions of binge-eating (I finished my first whole pizza on Wednesday night!), and lack of mental presence. To say that I am beyond excited for sleep and Netflix this weekend would be a severe understatement.

For the record, the picture above is not the pizza I binge-ate Wednesday night in between meetings. This is a bacon and clam pizza from a health restaurant on campus that is wow-that-was-surprisingly-tasty-and-satisfying kind of way.

Ariana Grande's Impressions On Point Once Again | Pretty much everyone and their mother now knows that Ariana Grande's impressions of various celebrities are absolutely amazing, but every single time, no matter what, her Celine Dion impression gets me every time! Also, side note: another Fallon must-watch.

The New Girl on New Girl | Zooey Deschanel is still on maternity leave (wah, brb slight crying), but that also means there's a new roommate showing up for a little while and the network just released who: Megan Fox! So excited to see how this goes!

A Timelapse of the Universe: To Scale | You're in the middle of the desert with a bunch of friends, what do you do? If you're one of these scientists, you make the world's first timelapse of the universe that is actually to scale. Crazy nerdy cool.

Naming Your Autobiography | I absolutely LOVE Katie's blog and this is one of my favorite posts from her, ever. I'm not too sure what mine would be - maybe something like So Busy That Sleep is a Dream or Sneaky SnapChats Are My Thing.

A Little Something to Warm Your Heart | This dad "built" Lightning McQueen for his son - he turned his cherry-red mustang into the beloved Disney race car. This is seriously one of the cutest things I have ever heard of!

Exam Study Tips | Have a few exams coming up? I recently wrote a Freshman Five on some of the study tips and strategies that I have personally found to be helpful and effective. I haven't read some of these anywhere else yet so I thought I'd share them here!

Hope y'all have an amazing weekend! What will you be up to?

Catch you next time.
