I am officially a #collegeblogger

Hey everyone! The last six weeks I have been on a hiatus from blogging due to many factors. I worked at a summer camp for five weeks with five and six year olds. My job consisted of teaching little girls how to sing Disney songs and taking them on field trips and basically catering to their every need. I would come home so drained, and I was completely not my self. I absolutely love working with children, but it took me away from my other passions. The fun part though was that a lot of my friends worked at the same camp as me, and we would grab dinner and hangout which meant a lot considering we are all going to different college.

I could apologize for not being a good blogger, but instead, I wanted to focus on the future of this blog. As known, I started this blog when I was thirteen (so either sixth or seventh grade), and now I will be entering my freshman year at Providence College and now I'm 18. Since I am also moving states I wanted to update my blog persona. There's a ton of college bloggers out there, but now that I am officially one... I want to do the best I can.

So let's talk about what I'm studying, how I feel, and how I am preparing. I'm a bit nervous about starting at a new place and especially living there. I'm more excited than anything else but it's definitely scary. I am living in an all-girls dorm (that's the only option for freshman girls), and I got the dorm that I requested (a double!). My roommate and I have been non-stop talking about how we want to decorate our room and that's very exciting! Our dorm theme colors are white, gray, turquoise, and navy. Maybe I'll even do a dorm post....hmmm.

I am also trying to be more organized, which I always say I'll do, but this time I am serious. I put all my classes into my Apple calendar, and I plan to put all my extracurriculars, events, tests, deadlines, and blog posts into it! There will definitely be an update about how that works out, but I am hopeful!

Since I am a Marketing major (as of now!) at the Business School, I wasn't able to pick my own classes, but this semester I am taking Financial Accounting, Development of Western Civilization (a four-semester class that everyone takes at my college), Economics, Marketing, and Math Business Analysis. I don't have much experience in most of those subjects, but I am up for the challenge. Providence College is a liberal arts college so there will be a balance between my business major and humanities classes over my four years (especially when I take up a Writing minor).

There's a lot to look forward to despite how nervous I am. There's sports events, extracurriculars, meeting new people, going around Providence and Boston, learning new subjects, becoming more independent, and so many more things. It's so easy to become flustered and anxious, but I am trying to keep my head up and go into this experience with an open mind. I think my blog is going to grow even more with me now that I have the motivation to keep going with it.

I am super excited for the future and I've decided I am going to try to post twice a week from now on and be more interactive with the blogger community!
