Just a quick oufit post if reading about college decisions doesn't happen to be your cup of tea.
I actually almost spoke on choosing a college at a recent Amherst speech tournament, especially since the topic was completely open. I then realized how blatantly irrelevant and ironic it would be with an audience of college students and professors. Instead, I opted to do an extemporaneous (impromptu) speech, and while it wasn't great, I'm glad I took the plunge.
Earlier this week, I also voluntarily subjected myself to a 3-hour math prize exam. Like the speech competition, I thought that even though it was a little scary, it'd be fun. It wasn't fun, but it definitely made me think a lot harder.
I've been stretching myself a little thin with all these extra endeavors--while it's important to me to tackle intimidating tasks, it's also important to be realistic. School is intimidating enough sometimes. Luckily, the final stretch has begun--time to dig in and stride forward.
Also, you may have noticed some layout changes over the past week--I was so lucky to stumble upon Eve's shop, MangoBlogs, on Etsy. She sells some of the cleanest, most affordable designs I've seen--I picked up this design for only $9! While you can't customize the themes in the template editor, Eve was extremely willing to help me with coding changes. I highly recommend her if you're on the market for a new layout. Her sale ends tomorrow, so definitely take a gander soon!
As a liberal arts student/endurance athlete/violinist/fashion enthusiast, I find beauty in many spheres. Consequently, I have no idea where life will lead me. Here is where I document my journey to creating myself--soul-baring reflections, embarrassing photos, and all. Feel free to join me for the ride.
