So I am already missing days on this blogging challenge, so I'm doing a two-for today! I started weight watchers again last night, so hopefully things will be looking healthier and more point friendly around me, but that's not always the case. I stopped at one of the coffee places around campus today and I'm in line to get my green tea (healthy right?!) and I notice a cupcake starring right at me... And then i notice it is red velvet.... And then I see the chocolate croissant there, and the blueberry streusel muffin. And my mouth starts watering. At the meeting last night we talked about anchors, and having something that reminds you of your goals. This is the moment when I thought "I have about 9 weeks until memorial day weekend... and I need to look hot!" So I got my green tea and left. I am happy I was able to make this decision and so far it has been fairly easy... Let's hope it stays that way!!
Today, B is for buns! I am obsessed, wearing on right now actually, ballet buns, top knot, messy buns however you want to say it and however you want to wear it i love it! My favorite recently have been the top knots.
To get this look:
First, gather hair in a high ponytail on top of the head.
Tease the ponytail.
Twist hair slightly while forming the bun.
Secure the bun with a ponytail and bobby pins.
Pull some loose strands to frame the face.
Hairspray, if needed.
This takes 15 minutes and is my go to look on mornings where I want to look put together, with little effort (so almost everyday!) I absolutely love this look and will probably do a more complete tutorial for you all when I have some more time.
Today is the first day of the A to Z Challenge and I am already nervous for it, I almost forgot! It has been a hectic weekend though. My sister and her best friend came down to visit me here in Athens. And it was so much fun! We definitely bonded and had an amazing time. It made me think about school and my first experiences of college life. They had so many questions and were so unsure of the city and their surroundings. It made me remember my first month in Athens. And thinking back on it, I am so happy I made the decision that I did. I do not want to be anywhere else right now. Every decision I have made up to this point has helped me grow and learn so much. And I would not want to do it any other place than Athens, Ohio.
I remember my first week of classes in my COMS 110 class, which was Communication Between Cultures. It was one of my first COMS classes and my first week of college classes. I had no idea what I was doing. We were talking about the culture of Athens and an older guy in the class raises his hand and says "I love Athens so much, everyone is so nice, everyone has a beard and smokes. It's awesome." Of course the whole class starts laughing, but there was a lot of truth to what he said. Everyone is so nice in Athens. No one judges or cares what other weird things people do, because chances are they do weird things themselves. There are people unicycling up Jeff hill, walking around without shoes, walking on tight ropes, and playing humans vs. zombies. There's always something interesting going on in Athens, guaranteed!
