freshman-thinkingThis year, I will be entering my 2nd year of college at a large school in New York State!

This is the place where I can let my creativity run wild and my thoughts roam free. This is my stress-free zone!

I am going to be blogging a lot about college life / dorm life / and my life in general. I also reblog photos that I find inspiring, funny, or that I just like. I think it's important to note, I am a runner. Living a healthy lifestyle is HUGE. I love posting all things positive, fitness and nutrition related!

If you have any questions for me - don't be shy! Just ask! Honestly, the best part of tumblr are the people! I love talking to each and every one of you!

So here it is everyone:
College - Year 1
College - Year 2

"What we all want in life, to travel, to fall in love, and be happy" - Unknown.

"Somedays you just have to create your own sunshine"

Happy scrolling :)



    “so how's NY treating ya? any interesting classes this year?”

    This was also probably sent ages ago, but I might as well answer now that I’ve seen it :) NY is treating me well, thank you for asking! I’ve been all over the state this year; visiting friends from my first college, moving to a new city for the summer, and this winter I began dating a guy from the Tri-state area which was super cool to visit! :) My classes this year were the best! I ended up taking a major leap and switched my major (as a junior)! I was originally minoring in communications and majoring in Graphic Design. I ended up falling in love with Comm as I took more classes & decided to major in it instead! My minor is now visual arts. I am going to be in college a year longer than expected but it won’t be too bad as my boyfriend is in a five year program & a few of my friends are a year younger :) It feels amazing to be satisfied with the degree I’ll be getting and finally feel like I am heading in the right direction (for me) career wise! I remember your tumblr & hope you are doing well!

    “How did you make it through the first semester of schooling? What was your motivation? I just really need some advice. I'm nearly failing my English Comp. for the fact that writing is just so difficult!”

    I have no idea when this was sent, so if it was sent a while ago I apologize :(. The first semester of college, or the first year in general really, is always the hardest one. Especially when it comes to academics. When you feel like giving up or you’re studying and crying at the same time (me) just be gentle & patient with yourself & remember it gets easier with time! I promise! What helped me a lot was connecting with people (other freshmen). My friend Lily, who lived in the dorm next to me, would often take study breaks with me to get smoothies or coffee. I would take this time to just vent about how stressed I was and what I was feeling. It helps so much just to get all of that frustration out of your system. It also made me realize, I’m not the only one having a hard time. You’re in the same boat as thousands or hundreds of students at your school. It is so much easier to get As and Bs in high school and you just have to remember, you’re new to this and your professors are grading a lot tougher than your teachers in high school did. If you are failing a course or just think you may be failing, definitely go to your professor’s office hours. If there’s a lot of students in your class, email your professor and see if you can schedule office hours with him/her so you won’t have to wait around. Not only will it help you get a better understanding of the material and what your professor is looking for, but professors love to see you take initiative. When they see that you care by coming in and getting help, it could be the deciding factor of a D to a C on your final grade. You should be super proud of yourself that you made it this far! I know you have it in you to get through this class and the year. I wish you the absolute best!!

    “I'm not sure if you remember me ( I've changed my url numerous times), but 3 years ago you sent me a really sweet message (I was in 8th grade at the time, and made a post about the dreaded middle school days, and how I was maintaining straight A's, despite it being a terrible experience) out of the blue, one day. I just came across your blog again,and I wanted to let you know, I'll never forget your kind words,thank you”

    This is the sweetest message. I may be sensitive but this made me a little teary eyed :’) It just goes to show, “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Thank you so much for sending this, you really made my day! Sending positive vibes your way ♡❁

    Hi everyone!

    It’s been a while!
    As I’m sure you all know, I no longer use this blog. I am not blogging right now or using tumblr.
    The reason you’re reading this is because I logged onto this account with the intent of deleting freshman-thinking…but it’s proven to be more difficult to go through with it than I thought.
    I’ve loved sharing my life with you guys and growing with you and having an outlet to express myself. I have so many beautiful memories of this website and the people I’ve connected with. I still go back now and read blogs that I followed five, six, seven years ago.
    Deleting freshman-thinking feels like I’d be erasing my freshmen year of college, as dramatic as it sounds. So I’m not going to delete.
    However, I am changing this blog so the more personal posts can only be viewed by me*** I cannot password protect as it is my primary blog :(
    The reason why is because I’m 21 years old now (it’s hard to believe I started this blog when I was 18 years old) and I do not want future employers to come across this blog.
    I know it’s a long shot, but just in case.
    This blog has made such an amazing impact in my life and each and every one of you has made an impact in my life. You’ve added purpose to my life and have given my actions meaning, you’ve inspired me, you’ve helped me stay positive, you’ve given me confidence, you’ve kept me sane hahahah. The tumblr community will always be the best one out there in my eyes.
    Thank you for being a part of my life.

    If you ever need anything or just want to say hi please free to send me a message on here or on YouTube.

    My Youtube:

    You guys are amazing! I love you all!
