Feeling Sporty

First: updates. Not only did I find out that I got an A on my first college paper, but my teacher also wants to nominate it for a monthly freshman writing award. I have been told many a time that this teacher does not give out A's often, but I didn't know that she used to teach at Harvard. This woman has high standards, and I met them. And that to me, as a freshman, makes me not want to stop smiling.
Tomorrow I will be working on costumes for the first show at my school this season. I will be making a real costume that will be in a real production and OMIGOSH I'M SO EXCITED! I'm so glad I ended up at LaGrange. I really am. This theatre department is amazing, and everyone feels like family even though I've only been in school about a month. It's so crazy how everything is going. As much as I was scared to leave, I'm so beyond happy to be where I am.

 I decided to really mess with these first two pictures, especially since the lighting in this stairwell made the pictures extremely yellow at first.

 A fire hydrant that isn't red! What?!
 There was this giant patch of ivy next to the chapel where we took pictures. It was so pretty that I just had to get some photos here.

I have now promised myself I will include one non-stereotypical blogger picture in every post. One of just me being me. Oh my goodness, I just noticed I didn't take off the hair tie I usually do before taking pictures. Aaaaaaaaaand I'm dumb.

Chambray shirt: JCPenny
T-Shirt: Ann Arbor T-shirt Company
Skirt: JCPenny
Shoes: Payless
All Jewelry: Same as previous post

A note about the pictures. I don't have the Photoshop program that was on the computer at my house. It's something called PhotoDirector that came with Windows 8 and I like it so much better! You may not be able to use certain elements as precisely, but it's MUCH more user friendly. I have yet to Google "how to use PhotoDirector" like I had to do with photo shop. I personally think these pictures turned out better than anything I did with Photoshop now that I've had a chance to mess around with this.

If you understand my t-shirt, you are officially totally awesome and supermegafoxyawesomehott!


  1. nice post ! i love your jacket and skirt


  2. I used to think that Photoshop is extremely user-non-friendly, but I got used to it and now I can't imagine my life without it.:) But on to more important things... You got an A??? Congratulations and I think it's really cool that you're nominated for the award, that's a huge honor, babe! Bask in the glory but let that be a motivation for further work too.;)

  3. Great pictures, absolutely stunning!
