Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated to study anything. So I made this playlist that helps me to get focused on my work and why I have to do my work. Feel free to check it out!


Let me know what songs you enjoy or any recommendations!




I was wondering if anyone else has had to manage school and work; as in 18 credits a semester and actual adult bills, such as car insurance and phone bills, as well as a healthy social life with friends and dating. Cause it is definitely a struggle.

It really sucks that not everyone can qualify for scholarships. Some people don’t have the grades because they’re stuck trying to work instead of homework. Or they’re from a family that falls in a tax bracket that the government classifies as “able to contribute”, so the student can’t get any grants.

I just hope that all the students out there can get the grants, scholarship, and the dreaded loans they need to make their future better.

Does anybody have any stories or advice for trying to make it through college while making enough to pay the bills and save enough to continue their education? Cause any advice for me, and my fellow struggling college students, would be greatly appreciated.

Rainy day…

It’s a lovely gloomy rainy day out here in Denver, that means it’s a perfect day for fall aesthetics such as…

  • Lots of blankets
  • Scary movies
  • Snuggling with pets
  • Snuggling with loved ones
  • Crafts such as knitting, crochet, and quilting 
  • Christmas tree lights hung on walls and things that are not Christmas trees 
  • Leaves
  • Crunchy leaves
  • Hot drinks

Sonnet from Class…

So my Lit professor made us write sonnets today (or try). So I want honest advice on it!

Wild things Tamed

Two wild things drawn together

One seeking freedom

One looking for adventure

Together they build a kingdom

Love grows wild in their hearts

Taming two wild minds

They knew they could never part

They were two of a kind

They live freely with each other;

Overflowing with happiness, passion

In love, they smother,

With no need to ration

He says I am perfect

And he sprung from my dreams

He’s there at the worst of times

His love is earnest

And we make the best team

Because, of course, we have the same mind


It’s supposed to be a Petrarchan Sonnet, not a Shakespearean, so please don’t look for iambic pentameter.

This is my life…

My name is Lana and my life is a zoo…  I wish I lived in a zoo, but not yet.

To start with the basics, I am currently a student trying to make ends meet so I can get my Bachelors’s degree in Zoology. I have 1 dog, a dachshund, and when I eventually move in with my boyfriend, I will end up adopting his two dogs, his cat, our kitten, and his two bearded dragons.

This is just a freeform blog where I am going to post anything and everything, from updates about my life to recipes to knitting patterns (yes, I know, I’m old) to pet tips to life tips.

So welcome to my life!
