Everything's Changing

Things have been a little hectic around here.

*My brand new Macbook Pro broke over the weekend, so a new one is on it's way to me.
I'm currently using my mom's laptop, but I can't post any vacation photos until my new one gets here next week.

*New Jersey had an earthquake today.  I was in Staples buying supplies when everything started swaying. I thought I was just dizzy, and didn't want to say "Was that an earthquake?" because I was so sure people would think I was crazy.  

 But in the biggest news....
I'm moving to college in a day.  Thursday morning at 6 AM I'll head to a completely new state, where I'll move into a tiny dorm room and prepare to share a room with a fellow swimmer for the next year.  I'm so excited about this new part of my life.  I feel like, more now then ever, I really need to just get away and start over fresh.  I'm also really nervous.  I've never lived away from home before (minus the two weeks I spent in France without my family last year).  I'm a total homebody, so that is very nerve-wracking to me.
Tomorrow I have to finish saying my goodbyes and finish packing up my car, and the next few days will be filled with making new friends and learning how to live on my own.  

This blogs going to be pretty quiet of new posts most likely up until Monday, when classes start and I get on a schedule.  Instead, I'm going to take a cue from a blogger I heard about, and instead post some of my favorite posts that I've done over the past two years.  I'm really excited to share posts that mean a lot to me, but that might not have been seen by some of my newer readers.

Have a great week/weekend everyone!  And PLEASE with me luck if you could :) 

P.S The August playlist on the right is really the July playlist.  I'll get back on track with the monthly playlist, style story sundays, little things, and such starting in September :) 


  1. I distinctly remember 8 years ago, laying on my bed right after moving into my dorm, looking out the window, thinking that life would never be the same and wondering what my first year of college would hold. I was right, life has never been the same, it all changed for the better. I wish you the very best as you move and make this new transition in your life. I'm sure it will be quite the adventure for you! Blessings!

  2. my first year of college i stayed home and went locally, then one day i picked a state, picked a school,went to the walk in admissions day and was accepted, and found myself moving to the unknown when the summer ended. I shocked myself by walking away from the life i have always known, to a completely fresh start, and let me tell you, looking back at it 7 years later,it was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. Wishing you so much luck, along with joy and happines. enjoy every moment of your new adventure and don't be afraid! :)
