I am a sucker for decorating based on the season and it doesn’t just stop at apartment decor. I love changing my desktop wallpaper from time to time and changing seasons give me inspiration and make me excited for what’s to come! Click on any of the pictures below, and it will take you to a new webpage for download! Enjoy everyone xoxo, Alina Breathe. Everything is Working Out I loved having this as my wallpaper for my last semester of college because it always reminded me how close I was to graduating and that I would get through all…

These past 5 years in college, I have had a major faith transition and it’s been pretty heavy on my heart. As I entered college, I began to discover my own perception of God- separate from what my mom taught me growing up and separate from what I had always thought as a kid. I’ve had a strong religious background my whole entire life, with my strongest relationship with God being in high school. Being a believer was all I knew.

When I moved out of my parent’s house, I lost a huge piece of my heart- our family dog. I had a big puppy-shaped hole in my heart that I couldn’t quite fill with anything else.

I graduate in less than 8 months and I still have no clue where my life is headed. What in the world am I supposed to do with my life after college? There are many things that should (or could) keep me terrified but right now, I’m very much most afraid for my future. Not going to lie, I don’t want to go straight into a job after graduating, but honestly, I can’t afford to do anything but that. So for now, I’m stressing out from my job search. I am open to anything- any kind of job (in the IT…

  I’ve learned a LOT in college but 2 of the biggest things I’ve learned are organizational skills & time-management skills. I’m gonna share a few ways that I use my planner to stay organized, prioritized, and stress-reduced in college. I’ve used a planner for as long as I can remember so there has been a lot of trial & error. After being in college for 4 years (going on my last, 5th year), I’d say I have really perfected my organization style. This is what has worked best for me in the past year. (I don’t put a lot…
