Amazon Favorites | Fashion, Lifestyle, & Organization

Happy Monday! I am so excited for this blog post and can't believe that I haven't done a post like this before. I asked on my Instagram stories the other day if you would like to see some of my favorite Amazon purchases and y'all said yes! You clearly love Amazon as much as I do.
A lot of the items I am going to share are Amazon Prime meaning (if you have a Prime membership) that they will ship free and quickly.

Spontaneous Miscellaneous + The Highs and Lows of Life

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you are all having a great week and are excited for the weekend. 
My week has been an emotional rollercoaster and frankly, I am glad it is over.
My contract with the company I work with was coming to an end this week and even though I know I am good at my job, I was nervous for my evaluation. It was stressing me out not knowing if I was going to be job hunting soon. Thankfully however, I passed my evaluation with flying colors and had my contract extended. I love teaching English to these students and am so happy I get to keep on doing something I look forward to every morning. 

The second half of my week however, wasn't quite as happy. For the last several weeks, including the week of my spring break, I have spent all my time studying for something called the General Knowledge Test. This is the first of three exams teachers are required to take in Florida in order to move forward with their college classes and become certified. This test, differently from the last two I will have to take, has absolutely nothing to do with teaching. Stupid right? I was so nervous I couldn't sleep and sadly, I didn't pass every section of the exam. I threw a pity party for myself yesterday and honestly, felt really defeated. It is hard when you are excited, passionate, and qualified to do something and a test of math is holding you back.

Spontaneous Miscellaneous

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have had a great week. This week has technically been my spring break even though I haven't done much other than studying for my first teacher certification exam. Needless to say this Spring Break has been rather stressful, but I have had a few enjoyable moments too. Let's get to talking about some of my recent favorite things, because that's what we do on Fridays!
