life as a college student

Today I had my first day of college! I was so excited about it, and the inspirational messages from my family members just really reiterated how lucky I am to have been given such a supportive loving family. I went for a more professional/ cutesy look- I wore a black dress with a pair of leggings under and TOMS (just because I knew it would be cold in the classrooms. I’m taking four classes- Intensive Spanish (lecture and discussion), Topics in Music, UROP (undergraduate research opportunity program), and a writing seminar about Riots, Police, and Justice in the 1960s. I’m really excited to start this new chapter in my life. I’ve went to three of the four classes today, which all seemed interesting. I’m excited to go to my writing seminar tomorrow (which is my only Wednesday class- bonus it doesn’t start until 4). I’ve already gotten homework in my other three classes (I even went to the library today). Though today was really tiring (I even took a thirty minute nap), I feel like it was the start of my new journey. And a part of that journey was to change my blog link! It’s officially my blog now (like I don’t have the anymore!). I did a couple changes to the theme to make it a little more me. I cannot wait to see what is in store for me and I’m so excited to be a freshman at THE University of Michigan! Go blue!



I’m really into plans. I always have things planned. So my plan was to go to Michigan State University, which has the number one College of Education in the country. But after considering all of my scholarship options, it would be a better choice for me financially to go to University of Michigan. It’s a great school, where I’ll be in a immersive intense Spanish program and get all the schooling I need for the real world. My goal is to still be a teacher, but I think I’ll major in Education and Business, with a minor in Spanish. My tentative major now is English, mostly because I want to focus on English to allow me to be a better teacher to younger children (who need good English skills). I just use this as my example that life happens. And that it is better to go to a school that you’re getting more scholarship funds. GO BLUE!


A popular nail style is a full set acrylic. Most of my friends have them or have had them so I decided to try it out. The first picture is of my nails right after I got them done. It was an interesting process with the fake nails and glue, but it was very short (it only took about an hour) and pretty inexpensive ($20 starting price). The color lasted for almost two weeks and that’s even with a lot of cleaning without gloves (which I will be investing in). The second picture is after a fill in. That’s just a basic process where they remove the nail polish and add more glue. That again was quick (half an hour) and inexpensive ($14). After this blue wears off (which I love and just got on Saturday), I will be soaking them off just to see how my nail health is. I’ll keep you posted!
