I Wanna Quit Blogging, Like, Every Day

At least, for a couple minutes a day, I do. I love blogging but, oh, is it frustrating. What do I love? Creating content, putting together looks I might never have thought of. Fostering a community within my blog and Instagram, people commenting and telling me I'm their go-to skirt and dress blogger really makes me happy that others enjoy what I post. Meeting people within the blogging community, I've connected with so many other bloggers who have become great friends through our mutual  ...

Why You Should Run Straight Into Fear

    I have been afraid a lot lately. I was afraid to board a plane (I love flying, but the thought equally amazes and scares me). I was afraid to go to the conference. I was afraid of making real moves to realizing my dream. Why? It is what I want; it is what I wanted since I was, I don’t know, fourteen or fifteen years old. I have also been very comfortable. I moved home to be with my family; my old bedroom is how I like it, I’m spending time with my dog (she’s  ...

Chapter Fifteen’s Favorite Moments of 2017

On New Years Day, I will have been blogging for exactly a year! And how fast this year has gone by. 2017 has been full of incredible memories for me full of friends, traveling, and accomplishments. Chapter Fifteen originally started out as a blog for me to document my post-grad life with a focus on my writing. It slowly started to morph into more of a life and style blog as the months progressed. (But I’ve got a second blog focused on writing and books coming soon!) I’ve had an  ...

Happy Fifth Birthday, Theta O!

Yesterday, my sorority chapter turned five years old! I drove down to the brunch for the first time since graduating to celebrate with sisters and friends. Five years might not seem like long, but this chapter has grown so much in such a short time and I’m proud to have been around since (almost) the beginning. These girls have meant so much to me throughout my time in college and after graduating, they mean even more.

Being Young and a Dreamer

When I daydream about where I want to go in life, it starts with my writing. My first dream is that I want to publish a book. I want to publish a book and see my name in print and walk into Barnes and Nobel and see my book on the shelf. I want to feel pride and relief that I actually did it. I want my book to make it to the New York Times best-selling list and I want to save the little blurb about it. I want to go on Ellen or maybe The Talk and I want the studio audience to go home with a  ...

Pomp and Circumstance and Stuff Like That

I’m still kind of in shock that graduation is at the end of this week. I’m kind of surprised to what with all the times I said I was going to drop out the last four years. But it’s actually happening in just a couple of days. The last four years have been filled with equal amounts of manic laughter and stress-induced tears. I’ve both called this place home and wished I was back home. Despite my complex relationship with college, I hold all the memories I made and all  ...

Post-Graduation Plans

So I’m a just about a month away from graduation. If we’re being specific (and I have been) it’s 37 days away.  That’s five weeks away. That’s thirteen days of classes away. I won’t lie, as excited as I’ve been for graduation this entire year, I’m a little nervous. School is all I’ve known my entire life. And I know there’s so much more life to live outside of school but there’s something about the routine of it that’s  ...

The Last Sorority Formal

Last night, I experienced one of my “last” memories of college: spring formal. My sorority calls it Black Diamond Ball and it was in a renovated barn with a Great Gatsby theme. Formal has always been one of my favorite events and has given me of my best memories of college. And this year was no different. For this formal, my roommates and I decided to have people over to hang out before formal. Our friends came to our apartment, we laughed, had some drinks, took pictures and  ...
