Soooo college!

Hi y'all!
I am sitting here in my EMPTY room waiting for my parents to get here. I cannot believe that my freshman year of college is over! It is sooo crazy! It has been such a great year and I have met so many great friends and had many many many funny and good memories. I will definitely miss all of my Dayton besties and seeing them 95037 times a day. But on that sad note, it is officially SUMMER!!!! No more loads of homework, tests, finals, papers or projects! Yayayaa!

What I learned from my freshman year (in a very brief nutshell)..
1) Jungle juice is lethal! Chugging it at a frat party is the farthest thing from a good idea, I learned that the bad way!
2) Keeping up with all of the homework definitely pays off in the end. It also is VERY beneficial to go talk to your professors, as scary as they may be, they do care and will remember you came to talk to them.
3) St.Patrick's Day is the best day of year.
4) Make an effort to get to know all of the people in your classes so you have a study buddy!
5) Enjoy your weekends and have fun! We deserve it!
6) Joining a sorority really does make your college experience even better. I am so glad that I rushed and love being part of ZTA and having a whole new family of sisters!
7) Most important thing - Realize that you will change. It is inevitable and part of being in college. I feel like I grew up soo much this year and although I changed/matured, I am definitely still my Lilly loving,girly self and am so glad I have learned everything I did this year.

Can't wait to get home! More later, wishing y'all good luck on your finals and end of the year festivities!
xx, M

Happy Thursday!!!

I was awarded the Happy 101 award by Preppy Perfection!! Thank you so much, it made my day! I absolutely love her blog and love sharing all of my boy sagas with her. Y'all should definitely check her blog out!

2 List who gave the award to you and use a link to her blog (or hyperlink).
3 List 10 things that make you happy.
4 Pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know about the award.

10 Things that make me happy!
1. My family
2. Zeta - I loveee everything about being in a sorority and love the close bond I have with all of my sisters.
3. University of Dayton - Yes, I said school makes me happy! Not the immense amounts of schoolwork but being at UD. I can truly not imagine myself anywhere else and cannot believe I will be leaving in just 8 days :(
4. Lilly - No matter what I have going on that day, I can count that wearing one of my Lilly's will make me smile, brighten my day, and give me luck!
5. Diet Coke - I have become a MAJOR addict. I have at least 4 a day, it keeps me going!
6. Weekends at school - Oh how I love my UD weekends. They are so fun and such a great way to meet more people.
7. Monograms - I am majorly obsessed with monograms. Especially my monogrammed koozie, I even bring it out to the ghetto ( where all the parties are at Dayton ) with me!
8. My mom - We are absolute best friends and I talk to her about anything and everything. She's the best.
9. Completing my homework early and getting a chance to relax- I always aim to finish my homework so I have at least a half hour a day to just have "me" time.
10. Shopping and mani\pedis - Two guilty pleasures that I will never give up. I love hunting for a bargain and finding to die for items as well as getting my monthly manicures and pedicures, so fun and relaxing!

Those are my special 10 things! I am going to pass this onto...

College Belle update!!

Hey y'all!
So sorry I have once again been a bad blogger, I have been SO terribly busy with school work, sorority activities, and school in general! Things have slowed down a bit so I can finally do a well needed recap!

I have so enjoyed reading your all's blogs everyday. The minute I get back from my first class I catch up on all of my blogs and cherish that part of my day.
I have LOTS of updates for y'all!

First off, I am officially a Zeta Tau Alpha! I was initiated and cannot imagine my life without Zeta, I truly feel like it has been a true blessing. Not only do I have 40 new sisters and the BEST big ever, but feel like I can truly be myself something I never really felt in high school.

Second, I got hired to be a tour guide at my school! Very exciting! I cannot wait to start giving tours and share my enthusiasm about Dayton.

I have successfully made it through my freshman year of college! We only have 3 more weeks of school! Cannot believe it went by so fast!

Those are my big updates! This year has definitely proved to me that there is so much more to life than silly high school.College really is SO different from high school. I myself was not a big fan of high school and never felt like I could be myself. But college really is soo different and so much better. Not only are the classes entirely different, with a lot more independence and individual work but you really are given a chance to grow up and change. It really has been a great year!

Here are a few pictures from recently!!

Have a fantastic weekend!!
