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

    Tomorrow I think I will be filming/posting a College Freshman advice video!

    You guys seem to be the most interested in that so that’s what I’m going to do! 

    1. If you have any specific questions (ex. do you use a laptop in class?) OR if you would like me to spend more time talking about a specific topic (ex. college parties, the freshman 15, the unglamorous side of college, etc.) - msg me or reply to this and I will be happy to do so! :)

    2. I am going to get real and personal with you guys! There’s a few things I wish I knew when entering college that I think every freshman should know! 

    because I could talk all day about the pros and cons to bringing a car to campus, or what to pack, or even study tips, but who really wants to listen to all of that? (I mean if you do, I will certainly include it lol) 

    True Life: we’re going to college and it’s about to be real

    the awkward moment when a picture on your dash is of a girl you used to know in high school.

    and the moment afterwards, when you see over 1,000 notes of girls saying they wish they looked like her. They wish they had her body, her hair, her bikini, her tan, her life, only THEN would they be happy. When in reality she is not the nicest person and her life is actually pretty sad. 

    Please think before you let jealousy wash over you. Focus on yourself and become all of the things you would want to see in yourself, or that you would want to see in a friend, or a sister, or a mother. No one expects you to look perfect, it is only YOU that holds these crazy standards for yourself! 

    I know that the media plays a role in how we perceive beauty. However, with that said, are you seriously going to let the media have power over how you feel about yourself? Or how you see other women? I certainly don’t. Not once have I met someone and said “Eh she’s ok… but she is NO victoria’s secret model.” or “I would like this person so much more if they had perfect features and the ideal body but she has flaws.” We don’t think these things when we look at other people, so why would we think this when we look at ourselves?

    Guys do NOT expect you to look perfect either. Not once have I heard a guy say, “Well she doesn’t fit my standards. She doesn’t have the right body shape and her hips don’t curve out the way they should, she doesn’t have a thigh gap or butt lines and she has 1 zit on her face. So no she is not attractive.” 

    It is only you that needs to change this perception of beauty. Once you work on that, you are golden.

    To tell yourself, “I am good enough”

    The guy I’m talking to right now seems perfect.

    Like so perfect that I have yet to find a single flaw in the kid! Or something that makes him “average” or “normal” 

    I almost stopped talking to him because of that. I felt intimidated.

    The thought of “Why would he want to talk to me?” entered my mind.


    As soon as the thought entered - I realized how silly I was being!

    Why the hell would I not be good enough?

    I may not be malibu barbie, a brain surgeon, and Angelina Jolie combined into one… but that does NOT mean I am not deserving or not good enough!

    I am a really nice person. I have a good heart. I can be funny sometimes. I have cute little quirks that are unique to me! I have good morals. I have goals for myself. I can run a mile in 8 minutes, I can make the dean’s list, I can make some sick art! I am not the smartest but I AM hardworking, I am me, and I am awesome!  

    "I am enough" <- I need to believe this more!  

    We all need to start believing that more!

    I’ve seen other bloggers do this, so I’m going to follow their lead! 

    Tell me what you love about yourself! Either in a response or a message! I would love to hear!

    When we went out last night for girls night! I love these girls! 

    At this point of the night we were in the back of a 1971 military jeep! It sounds so cheesy but it was the sickest experience. I loved that ride and the entire time we felt like we were on a safari lmfao. 

    It was such a fun night and I have more pictures but they didn’t turn out so hot hahahah

    Conversations I can't stand:

    • Girl: You are tiny!!! Why do you eat so healthy? why do you run? why do you go to the gym so much? Omg I wish I looked like you. You are so lucky :'(
    • What I want to say: I'm tiny because I eat healthy, because I run, because I go to the gym. I look the way I do because I WORK for it. If I ate the way you do, drank the way you do, and laid around all day like you then I would look like you. It's not like I magically woke up one day and had abs and muscular legs and tiny thighs - I earned my body!
    • What I say: I just like to. Thanks.

    Something I will never understand is the hate women/girls have towards eachother!

    You wouldn’t call a girl “fat”? So why would you put down a girl because she’s “skinny”?

    Someone wrote on the bathroom stall: "Beware of skinny people! They suck!"




    Another thing, I constantly witness girls doing:

    "Omg who was that girl that was with ___ at the party last night!" "Let’s look her up on facebook!"

    Then, they stalk the complete shit out of this poor girl who did NOTHING wrong and go,

    "Oh. She’s not even that pretty. She’s kind of chubby. She has a big nose, ew why was he talking to HER…."

    Or if she’s drop dead gorgeous it’s always - “She looks like a total BITCH!” or “What a SLUT. Ew. She thinks she’s hot shit. She’s dressed like a skank!” 



    ^^^^ One of the exact reasons to why I got rid of my facebook last summer! 

    If you do this, just ask yourself, who are you to judge? 

    /Rant. Sorry but this disgusts me and I can’t let this one go.
