Bye Bye Sophomore year👋🏻

So it’s my last day of my sophomore year of college and I’m currently waiting for my RA to check me out of my room. I never thought it would be this sad to walk into an empty apartment…I live pretty close to campus, so I’ve been moving my stuff out all week but decided it would be best to go back one last time and double-check everything before I checked out…man was this a mistake.

I walked in and was immediately overtaken by how sad it was to see everything bare and empty. It feels like just yesterday Marley and I were hauling our stuff in, a week before everyone else to start Dance Camp Preseason…and now the year is over… So much has changed this year, and its crazy to think that we won’t be moving in early ever again…that we’ll never have a dance preseason again…

As I sit here, I reflect on this year. It has definitely, by far been the craziest year of college yet…So many things have changed for both the worst and the better, but that’s life. I’ve learned a lot this year, and I’ve accomplished even more. I’m realizing that it’s true what they say; the college years are really some of the best times of your life.

This year I’ve gained 2 of my best friends, who in these past few weeks, I have done EVERYTHING with, and I know I can always count on them for anything. I met the love of my life, & we’ve traveled to places I would have never imagined. I’ve made it half way to my bachelor’s degree, and although it hasn’t always been easy, I’ve learned to take the good with the bad. After working 2 jobs and about 50+ hours a week first semester I have become a Sales Lead at Pier 1 and have had some pretty great experiences with my team.

My life is crazy, I’ll admit, but its mine. From the late nights staying up to finish homework after work, and the early mornings at the gym, there’s nothing I would change. Some argue that I’m missing out on the real college experience; late nights with friends and partying into the early mornings…But that has never been me… maybe when I’m closer to the end :p

As for Summer? Maybe it’ll be different, maybe some nights will be “crazy” with less responsibilities, but my goal is just to be happy. Workout, have fun and spend time with family and friends 🙂

Next up, JUNIOR YEAR!

Rainy mornings & cute cafes!☕️

We are officially at the last week of sophomore year, and I couldn’t be more happy that summer is just around the corner. I’ve had a great year and have learned and accomplished so so much, but it’s nice to know that I have a four month break to look forward to. Since the next few days will be spent studying for finals, Marley and I decided to take this morning to relax a bit before it gets hectic again.

Snapchat-7989486581616245531After going for a walk in the cold morning drizzle (as per BBG), we visited my absolute favorite café here, called The Bean Counter. We came across thisSnapchat-2341650271436841236 cute little coffee shop last year during a dance event, when we snuck out in search of some place warm. One of the girls suggested that we go there and I have been in love with it ever since. Not to mention they have the yummiest breakfast sandwiches everrrr😍

*It’s crazy to think that in less than a week the apartment will be packed up and we will be home for the summer. For now, I’m enjoying the last of the little things of my sophomore year of college.

Live a little

These are the nights I love. These are the kinds of nights that make the headaches and the the stress of college worth it. These are the times that we will remember of our time in college; the nights we spend with our friends, bonding and acting like anything but adults..

It’s often that Marley and I are dancing around and acting like we’re five, all the while taking snapchat videos and embarrassing the hell out of each other, and last night was no different. These are my favorite nights, the ones when homework can be put aside for a few minutes and we can just be silly together.

Tonight is spring ball, so last night was filled with all things girly preparation; doing our nails, prepping our hair, and trying out makeup combinations. I’m super excited for the boys to meet and for the four of us to have a great night. Lots of pictures will be taken, so be prepared 🙂
