From Seeing Stars to Hospital Visits

I”M HOME! And while I may not see this as a good thing, you all should. Why? Because that means you’re finally going to get a blog post out of me. I’ve been getting messages about this one for over a week now… you guys are impatient! (I say this with love.) 

Most of you already know that I was in Los Angeles last week. If you know that, you also probably know at least a little bit about what I was up to. And if you don’t, no worries, you’re about to know! Continue reading “From Seeing Stars to Hospital Visits”


Beach trips on a college budget

Today is all about planning the perfect beach trip when you’re on a tight budget, especially my fellow college students who can sometimes barely afford dinner. I’ve been there. I feel you. I posted about this yesterday on my Instagram story and some of you sent in some questions and I will answer anything that the post doesn’t cover at the end!

Carrie Tells All

Have you ever wanted to interview your best friend? Well, I wanted to, so I did! 

Ok, this was fun. Carrie and I have known each other for over a year now and I knew she was the one I wanted to interview for this post. We met on Twitter in April of 2016, and met in person for the first time that October in Los Angeles. Carrie’s one of those people who will talk your ear off about nothing for hours on end, but you love her anyways. At least, that’s how it is with me. (She knows this.)

And that’s enough of me rambling… let’s just get to it.   Continue reading “Carrie Tells All”


It’s Berlin, Baby

Since I’ve been home for over a week now, I figured I should probably get this post up. Whoops. My bad. Although, seeing as I’m still waking up before the sun decides to shine, I think I’m entitled to be a little sluggish on the whole blogging about Berlin situation.

I’m not going to take you through a day-by-day recount of the entire trip because it was for school. This was not vacation. This was Jordyn trying to remain sane while 100 years of German history is being shoved into her brain in 18 days. What I’m going to share with you all is the stuff I did alone! The things I did that had nothing to do with the whole schooling situation, because let’s be honest… I already forgot most of that anyways.  Continue reading “It’s Berlin, Baby”


So you want to be happy?

Ok so I’m going to try something new and give you guys advice. I feel wildly unqualified to do so, but I’m doing it anyway.

If you know me personally, and have known me for a while now, you probably have noticed a significant change in my personality lately. It’s like I graduated high school and BOOM! The Jordyn I had spent the past 17 years being got a glow up. I didn’t realize the root of the change until recently, and since I now know, for the most part, why my life took this AMAZING 180, I figured I should share it with all of you.  Continue reading “So you want to be happy?”


Book Review: Lunch in Paris

I bought this book yesterday thinking it would be a good one to take with me on the six hour plane ride I have coming up in three weeks. Well, seeing as I’m writing a review for it less than 24 hours after its purchase, that didn’t happen. You would think that, by now, I would know not to buy the “plane book” until 20 minutes before the flight, but here we are again. (Also, airports charge approximately $468 for a book and a bottle of water so there’s that.)

I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover or whatever, but that’s what I did. The sketch design caught my eye as soon as I walked in the store. Also, I’m a sucker for anything about travel in memoir form. If you haven’t read We’ll Always Have Paris, you need to do that. But this review isn’t about that book, so here we go.
