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  ...

A Slice of Paris

Cue Paris by the Chainsmokers, this outfit makes me feel like I’m about to walk around the Louvre and use my four semesters of French to my advantage. While I was out playing tourist in my own hometown, we stopped by this museum for an hour break from taking pictures. It wasn’t the Louvre and I didn’t have to speak French, but it was just as exciting as I imagine Paris to be. I’ve been trying to find a way to style this top I bought last month. It didn’t go  ...

Pretty in Pinstripes

Story time about this top. I was walking through the mall one day and saw that J. Crew was having a sale. I went in and saw this blouse and I knew that I needed it immediately because I bought this skirt and had nothing to wear it with And then I’ve been dreaming of this combination ever since. So when it was a beautiful day to spend out and about, I knew this was the outfit I had to wear. I spent the day walking around the park, around the city, then to a dinner party that night.  ...

The Best Shorts Ever in Existance

This isn’t an exaggeration. These shorts are amazing. They’re the most comfortable shorts I’ve ever owned. Every time I go away, I take these shorts. When the weather gets warm, I put on these shorts. Seriously. They’re life changing. I bought mine at American Apparel but they’re available all over the internet. I’ve linked a couple places here, here, here, and here! Trust me, you won’t regret it!

New Adventure: National Cherry Blossom Festival

This past weekend, a group of friends and I drove up to Washington D.C. for the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival. The Cherry Blossom Festival has so many events that a weekend is hardly enough time to devote to every activity. There is an annual parade, fireworks, and celebrations of United State’s relationship with Japan. You can also walk around the National Mall and the rest of the monuments and look at all the beautiful blossoming trees. You can also rent boats and paddle  ...

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  ...

New Adventure: 100 Days Until Graduation

It’s hard to believe that I’m in the home stretch of my college experience. While I’m excited for this new post-grad part of my life, it’s hard to believe that I’ll be leaving this school in just a few short months. I’ve made some amazing friend and even more amazing memories. This night will definitely be one of those memories. This night was not about being upset because college is almost over. It wasn’t even about being excited it was almost  ...
