slack. but not for long.

First of all, please excuse me for being so slack lately with my blog updates, I know, I know. As I write this I am sitting in the "cube" of my dorm room, which I actually love. It's literally a 7x7 room that has only enough room for my bed, desk, and walking room, but it is just so cozy and I have slept so well these past few nights.

My common room area is pretty empty except for the rug, TV and TV stand I brought, since my roomie Sallie (who is coming on Saturday) is bringing most of the stuff. I'm pretty excited to piece the room together and I think it will turn out really great.

That being said, I am now sitting in my cube trying to occupy my time. I came early because I'm on Orientation Staff at Wofford, which I like so far, but the freshmen don't come until tomorrow so these past few days have been just a lot of meetings and downtime (which I should value since that won't happen again for a looooong time). And despite this fact, I really do hate sitting here and being bored. I almost wish I had schoolwork or reading that I could get ahead on so I can at least make myself useful... maybe.

It's kind of odd being back at Wofford for a few reasons.
1. My room is pretty bare/lonely... not what I'm used to.
2. I don't get to see my best friends and boyfriend every other day like usual over the summer.
3. My best friends don't come until Saturday
4. I was home all this summer so I feel like I'm a freshman all over again, except I would NEVER want to do the whole "new to college" thing again
5. I'm at Wofford, but not going to classes
6. I'm not the youngest here anymore. That part I can't believe. It's crazy to think that there's a class at my high school that has graduated after I have.

I'm going to wait and add pictures later. My cube is basically decorated and organized, but I'd rather do all the pics at the same time. So, until I meet some girls for lunch at Panera in 30 minutes, I'm going through random CDs I found and Googling lyrics that I don't know to figure out what they are and expanding my iTunes collection.

PS- IT IS FREEZING.

re-create.

If you've been following my blog, (1. I love you, and 2. thank you!) then you have noticed I did a little re-vamping and re-decorating. I wanted it to be a little more real and an insight into my life. That's why I renamed it and have decided to define my blog a little more. I hope to include more of my photography (my new passion!) for people to enjoy, and give a peek into what's going on in this head of mine and my day-to-day life.

On the subject of re-creation, (and I don't mean fun and games...) with the approach of a new school year comes a new beginning. It's not like I'm going to a new school, having to make new friends, and getting used to a new way of life, but every beginning gets me a little giddy. As I peruse websites of my favorite stores with new fall fashions, revisit pictures from my freshman year, and order my textbooks, I can't help but get excited about a new school year. Who wouldn't?

I was talking with a close friend about college and the personal growth that one experiences over its expanse. This particular friend had a rough freshman year and basically re-invented herself (in a good sense) as she approached her sophomore year over the summer. Now, I'm not looking for a extreme makeover or a new group of friends, but a little change and growth would do me good. I am looking forward this year to finding my niche in my studies, and putting myself out there to meet people I wouldn't have otherwise.

This is the year that I really need to decide what I want to do with my life. Okay, that's a little extreme, but this is the year I need to evaluate my strengths and weakness and sit down with someone who knows what they're talking about and just talk about how to move in the right direction. Do I want to travel junior year? Get an internship this summer?

Lots of questions that can't be answered at the moment.

TO DO.

So a few days ago I came back from a lovely vacation in Maui, Hawaii (GO if you can!) and despite being jam-packed with activities, it was relaxing. But now that I'm home, with just over 2 weeks before move in, I am stressed. Here is my to-do list that I swear is growing and not shrinking...
(In no particular order)

-Get my car detailed
-Fill out the warranty form for my camera
-Buy shower curtain
-Make some crafty decorations for my ZTA little
-Buy "apartment warming" gifts for my boyfriend and friends moving in this week
-Choose, print, and arrange photos for the dorm
-Drop off portrait photoshoot pictures to the girl I made them for
-Babysit
-Pick out fabric for our curtains
-buy pillows for the futon
-organize clothes

Most of this can be accomplished in a few trips to Target, but still this list is legit overwhelming. I can't be alone though, so far I've had quite a few "likes" on my status expressing my frustration, haha.
