Winter term has been fueled by lots of coffee, and broken up by lots of weekend trips. It's always a treat to get away from campus. My PRSSA chapter visited Seattle earlier this month to tour three global PR agencies in the area. I'll never get bored of life in the big city. Or spending time with the student organization that's really defined my college education.
In other news, I'm quite sure there was snow on the ground the last time I wrote a "Life Lately" installment. Oregon dumped an extra nine inches of snow on us last week. Icy, snowy roads and a weekend without power definitely led to a campus of unhappy college students when Monday morning finally rolled around. Hopefully, this will be the last wintry blast that Oregon gets. How is the winter season wrapping up in your corner of the world?

Please don't let these bright and sunny photos fool you. Oregon has been neither of those things last past week. These outfit photos were taken before winter went and dumped nine inches of snow on us. Most of my recent outfits looked an awful lot like this. Luckily, things have (almost) cleared up since then, but my poor college town is just never prepared for winter snowstorms.
Also, a big thank you to the lovely Hannah from Creativity in Doses for snapping these photos! If you haven't visited her blog, I highly recommend that you click over right now. She is lovely!
