ramble on, maestro

Leaving to go get all of my hair chopped off and donated to Locks of Love! I’m so nervous and excited at the same time. My hair hasn’t been this short since I was 7 and my hair doesn’t always cooperate. But I’ve been wanting to do this for such a long time. It makes me feel really good to know that I am going to make a little girl smile.

I haven’t felt this naturally beautiful in my entire life. It’s a really good feeling.

I’m feeling really good today, so I thought I’d make a video. It’s just one of those days. :)

Good day today! Got up and went to breakfast (I usually sleep in) with my roommate, Elizabeth. We had some good ol’ fashioned bonding. Then I went to my statistics and political science classes. After that, I was on my way to the dining hall when I ran into Wes and Raquel who I went to high school with! We ate lunch together and it was splendid.
Then I came home and had a three hour break until my next class (aka right now). I checked my email and the guy who I emailed about a social media position for his company emailed me back and I have an interview-ish thing in about an hour! I’m excited…and nervous. The company is called GoRankEm. It’s kind of like tumblarity for music. It’s where users are able to rank all types of music from Fleet Foxes to Dolly Parton. I’d be helping out with the social media (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook - basically my life already).
Tonight my sorority is having a social with the guys from AEPi and TEP. It’s called Showcase where the girls in my pledge class from my sorority pair us up with a guy from the pledge class from one of the fraternities. Should be…interesting.

2 years ago / 5 notes / sdt, uga, college, happy, yay, gpoy, gpoyw, :),
I was unsure too. My sister goes to Georgia Tech so for the longest  time I didn’t like UGA just for that reason. I didn’t necessarily hate  the South but I sure as hell didn’t love it either. I saw college as my  opportunity to broaden my horizons and get out of there. UGA was the  only place I applied to in Georgia and it was only to appease my  parents. I applied to universities all over the country - Syracuse, NYU,  Emerson, FSU, USC, Texas, Pepperdine, Indiana, BU and Elon. I got in  everywhere but USC.
I was really interested in studying  journalism in college - broadcasting to be specific - and everyone I  knew kept telling me about how awesome UGA’s program was. I always  rolled my eyes because I thought they were only saying that because my  mom told them too. I visited some of those universities and loved some  (Elon has a gorgeous campus, Emerson and NYU are fantastic schools but  don’t have a very strong communications program) and hated some  (Syracuse is so cold and gray - it’s just depressing).
And I got  into UGA and decided I should probably visit there just to appease my  parents so they don’t think I wasn’t just throwing that option out of  the window because it was their choice for me (I kind of was) and so I  went to this session for “undecided Dawgs” where we had a tour led by  students, informational session with the school of our choice (Grady)  and were able to talk to some students from the school. And as much as I  hated to admit it, I kind of loved it. The campus is gorgeous. There is  so much green and the buildings look so nice, clean and elegant. It’s  not mismatched like Syracuse. There are so many different types of  people here I had no worries about fitting in.
Athens is such a great college town too - although you probably  already know that. And then I found out that UGA had one of the best  journalism schools in the country - only behind Northwestern and  Columbia. That is what really sold me.
My biggest concern was  that I would be with the same people I was with in high school and I  really didn’t want that. I didn’t have good experiences with some of  them so I was afraid that college would just be another version of high  school but then everyone assured me that after first semester, I  wouldn’t see them unless I went out of my way too. And it’s true. I  really haven’t seen many of them. I have a few in my sorority and a  class with maybe two of them but besides that, nothing.
UGA is  such a great school and I am so glad I went there. I have no idea if  this was what you were expecting in a response, I really doubt it - I  wasn’t even expecting to write such a long response, but once I started  writing, I just couldn’t stop. I really love UGA and wanted to share my  story with you.
In the end, choosing where you go to college should be your decision.  Talk to people and ask them questions about the school but don’t let  their stories and opinions make or break the school. At the end of the  day, it should be your heart that you listen to (sounds so cheesy but  it’s true).  This where you are going to be for at least the next four  years - it is your experience, not anyone else’s. So make it count. As long as you do that, it should be the best four years of your life.

I had a fantastic day today. Only two classes - Astronomy and History/Analysis of Rock and Roll. History of Rock and Roll is my favorite class by far. Then I had lunch with my guy who I met in Astronomy and met all of his fraternity brothers. It was a pretty productive day too. I did my laundry and went grocery shopping as well. Now I’m chilling in the apartment with my roommates. I’m going out later tonight with some of my sorority sisters  and we’re going to chill with some of the guys from a fraternity.  I’m excited and so happy. I love UGA. College is better than I could have ever believed.
