Thursday’s Thoughts Volume 2: End of Semester Recap

Hey everyone! Long time, no see. I made the first Thursday’s Thoughts months ago… and then never did it again. Life be like that sometimes. But, I’m back, and looking forward to sharing more with everyone!

Life Updates

  1. I took the GRE at the end of July and honestly, it didn’t go as well as I had hoped. I plan on studying all of spring semester to retake again either at the end of spring semester or in September.
  2. In the past 6 months I’ve traveled to: LA, Palm Springs, San Diego, Laguna Beach, Tijuana, Nashville (twice), and now I’m home for winter break in Minnesota!
  3. I successfully defended my Psychology Honors Undergrad Thesis and my mentor and I are going to work on trying to get it published.
  4. My fitness journey went off the rails (womp womp) but since I’m going to Spain for spring break and graduating in May, I have some serious motivation to take better care of myself!
  5. I started a YouTube, my Instagram content has been getting better, and I’ve been being somewhat consistent with my blog
  6. My two events at my office (the Homecoming Concert and Winter Wonderland) both went great and I’m super excited to see what spring semester has in store!
  7. I will be graduating magna cum laude from USF in Spring with Honors in Psychology and also from the Honors College which I’m excited for!
  8. The job search will have to start soon… yikes
  9. I’m taking a gap year and going home to Minnesota for a little over a year! I’m sad to be leaving Tampa but it will be nice to come back to Minnesota for a while before I go to grad school somewhere else in Fall 2020.
  10. Lastly, I will be applying to grad schools this fall to pursue a PhD in I-O Psychology!

Currently Watching

  1. YouTube Vlogmas videos (and YouTube in general) – I’ve been so behind but I’m catching up right now from my favorite YouTubers: Gretchen Geraghty, Danielle Carolan, Brooke Miccio, Kristee Vetter, Kris Hui, Natalie Benson, Lost LeBlanc and Jade Darmawangsa. Pro Tip: start being subbed to Gabby Mckessey now because her vlogmas has been fire and we love a USF YouTuber.
  2. The Good Place Season 2 – I was trying to catch up so I could watch the new episodes of Season 3 on Hulu but I was too late so some have already expired!
  3. Fuller House Season 4 – I binged it all in one day. No shame.
  4. Riverdale Season 3
  5. Splitting Up Together Season 2
