How to Survive A College Football Game

Growing up no where near a college, I never went to a college football game so when it came to my first home game, I was nervous. And since my football team is part of the SEC, the most watched conference throughout football (Alabama is apart of the SEC), it was quite an affair.

There is a huge different between regular football teams and SEC teams, since the Gamecocks played against East Carolina it wasn’t considered an SEC game. SEC games involve tailgating with LOTS of Southern Food, fancy dresses and team spirit of course!

To go to an SEC, the outfits are both sophisticated and casual. Girls wear pearls, cowboy boots and rompers while the boys wore tennis shoes, button ups and bow ties. The rules I heard were if it was SEC official game, I was suppose to wear a dress but since it wasn’t I wore a jersey matching with my very cute boyfriend. The way I see it and many others that it shouldn’t matter what type of game it is, just wear what is considered comfortable.img_2891

The next thing is to hang out with friends. Since my boyfriend had his family tailgating, we did’t need to worry about that. We brought a few of our friends over to have some food and meet his family. Since I am considered a ‘Yankee’, a family member of his suggested I try a piece of a Southern brand bread, it was literally the same thing as regular bread. And I had a bunch of hot dogs because I am such a picky eater.

Friends make everything more fun!

The game is always fun, USC is known for their chant during the song Odyssey: 2001 and their sand storming with towels. Being very high up was scary but it didn’t bother me too much once that game started. Seeing everyone from the school showing pride made me so excited for my next few years!

Although we are not the best team in the SEC, we do show a lot of spirit! Remember to stay safe before, during and after the game. It is always fun when you get into the school spirit and being goofy with your friends!

London Day 3 & 4

On the 3rd day, we decided to check out the Changing of the Guards because we were not going to be able to see it on our tour. Although it was not the most exciting thing ever, I kind of got a upfront view of the inside gate. Waiting for that day that I marry royalty.

My tour officially started that day and we took a bus around the city especially the main tourist landmarks. I swear I love this city and hope one day (when this whole Brexit fixes itself) that I might live there.

The next day we went to the Tower of London, I realized that the history that occurred in the city was far cruel than I knew. After exploring the Crown Jewels and hearing the stories of the two princes, we took a speed boat down the Thames which was absolute best thing ever! And seeing my favorite blogger, Eleanor Calder, on the same boat a few weeks later made me excited.

We went on the London Eye and I do not think I will ever go on it again. Being in a small pod, high in the air, there is not much of an escape route and feeling it abruptly start again and nearing knocking me over ended with me sitting on the bench and gripping the side.

Afterwards we walked towards the Covent Gardens but first finding a Carousel and a hidden skate park, like this city has hidden beauty. We had gone to the Charles Dicken’s Cafe for some food and went down towards the market. I swear every time I start to head back where he had came from, I find a cute street that I have to go down to visit!

I love London.

Prom 2016

High school has finally ended for me, so despite my busy schedule I had one last hurrah with my friends at prom. I knew there was a lot of hype around prom but I went in with an open mind and I had one of the best nights.

I had gone with a date, who I had asked, but it is perfectly fine going with just friends and not with a date. The whole date concept is something that is implanted in our heads so I thought it would be better to go with a good friend of mine to have fun one night before I leave for school.

My track teammate mentioned I looked like Angelina Jolie in my dress and I literally died! After a fun night at prom we ended up at a burger joint by my school known as Steak and Shake where we pretended to be rich people who wear such clothing as an everyday thing. Although my feet did hurt, I could not have asked for anything else. I am going to miss everyone next year.

Lovely Day to Watch a Croquet Game

Today is the annual Naval Academy vs St. John’s College croquet game. My friend Kelly and I had gone to see what the situation was all about. After getting a little anxious over the alcohol people were drinking, all the smokers and seeing kids from school that I cannot deal with because their those type of people, I felt better. We hung out with the band and I even was pulled in to dance with a guy who I believed to be drunk. Afterwards, we had gotten ice cream after the very hot day.

My Week on Fashion Avenue

Hey everyone! I recently traveled to the great city of New York to take a fashion class at Fashion Institute of Technology. I learned how to put pictures that I love (people, places, objects, etc.) into a journal based on similarity and by that I can create pieces of clothing, so actually I can just grab some fabric and create these pieces of clothing which maybe I should try! SO if you subscribe here to my YouTube, wait for my vlog for the week soon and you can see my drawings! I was extremely nervous on the first day, including a small panic attack but it was awesome and I don’t know why I was so nervous! So here are the few pictures that I got while I was there, both on my phone and camera because my camera card was being a meanie and filling up on me without my knowing before we left and I didn’t have time to change it. I know these photos are random, I’m sorry.IMG_2981 IMG_2982
Our hotel was in the floral district and I thought I could try to be artsy by doing this.

We later gone to the “Largest Department Store in the World” known as Macys in Herald Square and I felt a bit anxious in it because I did not know where I was and it was a big maze.

We than went to H&M, which I bought a $15 dress and literally loved these lights .

My mom showed the Fashion Walk of Fame she found while I was at school one day and we decided to walk along it and saw one of my favorite designers!

This is literally my new favorite dress from H&M and hopefully will buy it one day.

Outside the H&M in Times Square, there was a filming crew and I so badly wanted to know what was being filmed but they quickly moved on because of the crowd during rush hour.

We had took a very scary pedicab ride to Tiffany’s. Lets just say I almost cried because I was walking right by the place my favorite actress was so many years ago.

Taking over the fashion world, one selfie at a time!

As soon as class ended, I headed back to hotel so my mom and I can quickly get to Penn Station to take the train home. I felt a bit anxious and pretty much as soon as our train was announced, I literally was almost trampled by the mass of people going to our train. The originally 3 hour train into 6 after we had gone to Philly because of the storm and lets just say no one was happy and it would have been better to drive 2 hours from Philly to home.

I would say that taking a fashion class may seem nervous, but if it is something that you like to do it shouldn’t feel like hardwork. Learning how I can create something just by flipping through a magazine was so much fun.

Check out my vlogs on my YouTube channel! Sorry if my voice is annoying.

Dares

If you do not know, Summer is coming soon to the States and those in the Northern Hemisphere. School is ending soon and I am pretty sure most of you are hoping to be able to make the most of it before the last day. I decided to put together a few dares that I hope you guys get the most of these last few days. I came up with this concept as we all know how to play Truth or Dare, being safe I always choose Truth. But having realized exactly how short life is, why not do something that I have never done before.

  1. If you see someone being bullied, stand up for that person. Do not think that someone else is going to stop it, you will feel better about yourself if you helped someone else.
  2. I know senioritis hurts everyone even those who are not in high school, but at least try to study and do your best within the next couple of days/weeks. Remember, your teen years define your future.
  3. Rekindle some friendships, no matter who it is. Just a simple hey to someone at school or long distant that you once talked to can go far.
  4. Go to school without makeup. I know you girls love to paint on your face like I do, but take a few extra minutes to sleep and go to school with your head held high proud of how you look.
  5. Talk to that guy in your English class(or wherever) that you have been slightly admiring from a far, but being friends is at least a good start.
  6. Get that one person’s number that you have been pining over to get, maybe its that cutie that you talk in your History class or just a new friend that you want to hang out with this summer.
  7. Eat healthy, I have been trying to do this a lot within the past year. Stop eating Cheeze-its, start working out, drink lots of water and do not starve yourself and your body will thank you.
  8. And love yourself. Society is a cruel thing that has hurt so many people, including myself. It is hard to look beyond what others say but just try to because it is worth it.

Remember dares are all about getting out of your comfort zone, your heart pumping and those butterflies in your stomach with the feeling of throwing up but it will be all worth it one day. If you do any of these dares, please tell me and what happened.

I love you and hope you make the most of these next few weeks.
