SPRING TIME, FLING TIME


Whew! These past couple of weeks have been a true whirlwind. I've been stressed to lightly put it and in serious need for some good music. Good thing I have found my love for Spotify again. I personally think it's better than iTunes Radio because I can play through full albums. It's great and I've made a pretty long playlist, some new music that I'm into currently and some music that I added when I loved Spotify long ago. *Right now, all of my playlists will be on Spotify! I highly recommend downloading it.*

Sidenote: I'm looking to incorporate more music onto this blog. I'm pretty music illiterate, so I know I personally wouldn't be able to keep this up for long, unless you like getting the same songs over and over. I'm not into new stuff right when it comes out. It takes me a while to like a song and actually know the lyrics (#grandmastatus). SO, saying all of this - I would love contributors! All you would have to do is create a Spotify playlist so that I can share it on the blog. Your picture would be included in the like the one above and all of your social media contact information, if you want. It's pretty chill and I would love to allow my readers to get to know you through your musical taste. And, selfishly, it's a great way for me to get to know more music. Sound good?

COLLEGE IS...

Oh, college. I've been meaning to incorporate more "college-related" posts on the blog. I've decided to start the series "College is..." where I touch on different college related things, with the help of some of my college friends! This week, Jessica, one of my closest friends at school said that "college is the finding of oneself through others" a quote that I think accurately describes the entire college experience. I'll be honest, I have no idea who exactly I am. I know what qualities I possess, what I like and dislike, my flaws and all, but I still don't know what I'm doing with my life, what my future holds and who I'll be (and be with) in 5 years. I think it's OK to be where I am right now. We're still young (I'm 20) and we have all of our lives to figure out who we are. It doesn't hurt to start in college, but I don't think we have to force finding ourselves. It's a process and it starts with others.

In college, everyone is not raised the same (I mean that in the best way as possible, ha). Because everyone comes from different backgrounds, you're constantly learning new things from people, whether it be good or bad. For instance, each one of my friends brings something different to the table. I can learn something from each of them and each lesson I learn from them is helping me become the woman I am today. Here's something about me that you probably didn't know: I am not perfect nor do I try to be (and it really upsets me when people think that I think that I am). I believe that I have the ability to learn something from each person that I come in contact with. I'm open to learning new things too, and college is the perfect place for that. In college, you're always meeting new people who are going to hurt you, love you, cuss you out, hate you, befriend you, talk about you, lie to you, kiss you, hug you, betray you and stab you in the back. It's important to take a little something from each experience and mold it into being a better you.

What is college to you? I'd love to know!
