Christmas Wishlist 2018!

If you are new to my blog hello! My name is Karla and I am a sophomore at Central Michigan University! I post lifestyle and college-related posts and would love if you would subscribe to this blog to keep up with me and of course follow all my social media listed below! 

I can’t believe it is already almost December! I have 3 weeks left of this semester and then I am on Christmas break for 3 weeks! My family has been asking for my Christmas list for this year and I posted one on my blog last year so I figured I do it again this year! Here is my Christmas wishlist for 2018:

  • Black Rain Boots(Size 8.5)– It rains so much around the spring and fall time and my college campus is notorious for puddles and flooding. I am sick of going to class with wet feet and decided maybe it is time to invest in a pair of rain boots like everyone else!
  • Image result for north face jester black laptop 15North Face Jester Backpack in Black– I have been needing a new backpack for so long, the one I have now is from my sophomore year of high school so I have been using it for quite a long time!
  • Vera Bradley Iconic Zip ID Case (Indio)– Recently after 4 years of having it my Vera Bradley ID case finally broke, in the meantime, I ordered a cheap version off of Amazon but I would love to have another one of these, they are so useful and convenient to carry around!
  • Brita Water Pitcher(5 Cups)– I am a big water drinker and would love to have a pitcher to store in my fridge to keep it cold and filtered!
  • Anything Sorority related: A tote, Sweatshirts(Medium), Shirts(Medium), Ect. My sorority is Zeta Theta Pi!
  • Sports Bras(Small) and Black Sports Leggings(Small)- I have been in need of some new sports bras and leggings and I want to start working out again so these would be a perfect motivation!
  • Anything Harry Potter- Obviously being a potter head I would appreciate receiving anything Harry Potter related.
  • Anything CMU: Sweatshirts(Medium), Shirts(Medium), room decor, ect.
  • Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be– I have heard nothing but good reviews about this book and have been looking for a good self-help book to read and really get into!

    The Hate U Give– I have a thing about not watching a movie before I read the book and I have been wanting to see the new movie The Hate U Give. Then I found out that there was a book and I absolutely have to read it before I go and see the movie!

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them– Of course being a huge Harry Potter fan I need to read this book and can not believe I haven’t done so yet!
  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child– Again being
    a huge Harry Potter fan this is a book I have been wanting to read since it came out and am super excited to finally get my hands on it and read it!
  • Every Breath– This is a Nicholas Sparks book, whom of which I am a huge fan of, and I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on it!
  • Gift Cards: Target, Meijer, Walmart, Kohls, McDonald’s, Culvers, Subway, Panera, Taco Bell, TJ Maxx, Bath and Body Works, and Visa Gift Cards.
  • Fuzzy Socks

I just want to take a moment and acknowledge the holiday season is not about getting gifts, my favorite part of the holidays is, in fact, giving and spending time with my family and friends! Don’t take the holidays for granted and remember to be thankful!

What I Got For Christmas 2017

This Christmas was absolutely amazing, getting to see all of my family and hangout for a couple weeks before going back to college is such a good relaxing feeling. Even though Christmas is in no way just about what we get I thought I would show you guys some of my favorite gifts I received this Christmas! Although this isn’t everything I received for Christmas I am still more than thankful for everything I got!

JBL Flip 3 Speaker(Blue): I was super excited when I opened this, currently I am listening to music on it right now and the sound quality is amazing and it plays music very loud. This was the number one thing on my list and I am super happy I got it!

Rose Gold Sea Turtle NecklaceI have been wanting a simple necklace I can wear all the time and this was absolutely perfect, the design is super simple yet beautiful and not to mention I love rose gold so this was a great present to receive! If you are interested in purchasing this necklace or any other of their products you can use my coupon code to save 25% KarlaSm25

Newdora Hammock: I was so excited when I opened this because I have been wanting a hammock for so long. I can’t wait until the spring to use this around campus and in the summer time to relax or study!

Fuji Film Instax Mini 9 Polaroid Camera: This was of course also something I had wanted and I am super excited to be able to use it and hang up the pictures. I am really happy I also got the blue color and I can’t wait to see how the pictures turn out!

College Apparel: You can never go wrong with college apparel and it is something I can never have too much of. I got a sweatshirt and a matching pair of sweatpants which I can’t wait to wear around campus! They are perfect for the cold weather and are super comfy!

All Natural Bath Bombs: What girl doesn’t love bath bombs!? I can’t wait to use these, they smell absolutely amazing and are made of all natural ingredients. I love the different categories and will definitely have to try them all out! I was also excited to receive Panera and Starbucks gift cards because those are two of my favorite places to eat!

Ramen Noodles & A Cookbook: This was a really unique and creative gift that I can’t wait to use. Being in college Ramen Noodles are a go to when I’m too lazy to go to the dining hall and getting a cookbook full of different ways to make them and recipes definitely has changed the game. This will especially be useful next year in my apartment when I have to cook for myself all the time!

Again this is just a few things I received, I am so thankful for everything I got and am so thankful to have an amazing family who knows me so well. In addition to the presents, being with family and eating a home cooked meal is a huge part of why I love Christmas so much and now that I am in college I treasure those moments that much more.

1st Semester of College: Wrap-Up

I can officially say I am done with my first semester of college! It wasn’t as hard and I thought it was going to be but I definitely had a few bumps along the way.

As far as final grades go so far I have passed all my classes! However my math professor has not yet entered any of our grades so I do not know if I did good enough in the class to pass it, by far that was my most challenging class.

The best part about finals week was having the therapy dogs come to the library everyday, being away from my dog it was nice to have a furry friend to help take some of the stress off studying.

Ill do a brief summary of all my classes so you can get a better idea of what my semester was like!

COM 101 (Introduction to Communications): I easily passed this class with an A, giving 3 speeches and taking 2 exams it was pretty easy. Our final exam consisted of us going to class, watching sponge bob Christmas episodes and eating pizza at ten in the morning so I can definitely say I ended that class on a high note.

ECO 202 (Principles of Microeconomics): This was for sure one of my most challenging classes just because Economics does not tend to be the easiest subject in the world. However I passed the class with a solid B and I am very happy about that. He actually let us use our laptops to look up all the answers for our final so I got a 98% on that which was a definite grade booster!

SOC 100 (Introduction to Sociology): For being an intro class this was a pretty challenging course. My professor was very nice but did not teach the material in the best way making the exams a little on the challenging side as well as her weekly quizzes. I ended the course with a B which I was kind of disappointed about because I should have been easily able to get an A in.

MTH 107 (College Algebra): I absolutely dreaded going to this class and doing all the homework that went along with it. The majority of the math department at my college tend to be foreign which makes them very hard to understand and my professor was no exception to that. He was a very nice man but made the course very difficult mainly because he did not teach the material well. As I said before I do not know for sure what I got in this class and just am praying for a B.

PSY 100 (Introduction to Psychology): Being a Psychology minor this class was very interesting and easy to me. I had no worries about this class and my professor was amazing at teaching and was very fair in grading and making his exams exceptionally easy. I have him next semester for my Abnormal Psychology class and I am already so excited to take the course. I ended this course with a high A and am very happy with the information I retained from the course.

Overall finals week was hell, I stayed up late many nights but overall the finals wen good for the most part and I am happy to be home for the next couple weeks spending time with my family.
