PhD Fashionista’s Survival Guide to Grad School

Hey Loves!
Sorry it’s been some time since my last outfit post, I do have outfits I need to post about, but I’ve just been swamped lately with school work and not having enough time to do anything!
I have a bunch of projects I am working on – I am heading to a conference in San Diego that I am preparing some Conference Fashion posts, and I will hopefully be blogging fashion during the conference also. I am also working on some fitness posts, that will be up soon also!

BUT! I am finally proud to announce that I kicked my butt into gear and FINALLY got around to starting this youtube series I have wanted to start since Summer, a Survival Guide to Grad School. I will be talking about various issues graduate students encounter, and this is the first intro video in the series – but I will be posting a video a week! These aren’t issues just exclusive to grad students but also to life, so if you have anything you want me to talk about, do leave a comment!  Would love to hear some feedback also!

I would love it if you would SUBSCRIBE to my Channel!

Also, I am always active on Instagram right now, mainly because I am always on the go – so definitely check out my posts there if you want some more fashion inspiration (I have recently been posting my daily outfits that I don’t get a chance to photograph for the blog!

    Graduate School can be challenging! It's expensive. It's like school & having a full time job in one! LOL It can be physically & mentally challenging. The stress of finding a job afterwards. A phD is even more so. I had a great group of friends when I went in the same program. We balanced studying, going out and even took trips. If I had to suggest anything, it would be to stay on top of things. Study everyday, so you won't be overwhelmed. Take excellent notes! Read through them daily. Then it won't be as much in the end. I would be at school ALL DAY! From morning to evening. It was important to eat properly, get enough rest and study all the time. It sounds cliche, but it got me through it.
