Dear Diary

As word of my blog has been circulating through the Hardin/UT grapevine, I find myself explaining how BOD came to life. For the most part, it spawned from a need to cure a case of summer boredom. Though the thought may have never crossed my mind if it wasn't for my sister. In watching her document her expat travels, I thought I'd return the favor by documenting my daily adventures, so it became my digital diary.

Over the years, I've developed more of a focus on certain interests of mine (i.e. fashion, food, music) and tried to steer away from so much me, me, me. But now that I've entered my college years, where many of my friends and family are no longer nearby, I think it's the appropriate time for BOD to revert back to its roots at least once a week. So, here's my past week--enjoy!

I turned in my first formal college essay. Though it wasn't the relaxing post-ACL Sunday I would have liked, I hashed it out and was both proud and relieved to have it under my belt. This week will end with my first test--another daunting yet inevitable feat to overcome.

I finalized my sophomore housing plans! Yes, it's not even October and everyone in Hardin basically has their roommates and address set for next year. I'll be living with six other Kappas and I could not be more excited about it!

Here are some of the girls I'll be living with at one of our mixers. The roomies names are bolded.

Wednesday was a long but productive day. It started bright and early with an 8am Kappa Bible study followed by breakfast with Lana (who spent her weekend in New York!) and Sarah who spent her weekend visiting the Ole Miss Mustangs. Speaking of the Hotty Toddys, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSEPHINE! I love and miss you!

My productivity was complete with a late night Walgreen's run to pick up printed photos from my first month of college. Filling my KKG frames inspired me to organize in general, which I find to be a good midweek therapeutic activity.

On Thursday evening, I made my first solo trip to the Domain. I was in need of black jeans after mine decided to disappear over a year ago. Plus, I wanted to master the route to this Galleria-like shopping center. Later that night, Julianne, Merl and I had our first late night dive into the Hardin pool.

A spontaneous thought turned into a three person splash in a matter of minutes.

Good thing we had our friendly neighbor Meagan who was kind enough to document the excitement. Despite being completely frozen after, it's most definitely in the running as one of my favorite college moments yet.

Port Aransas was a lot of things--hilarious (never been so delirious in my whole life), exhausting (note to self: don't ever get the Dramemine that makes you drowsy), interesting (glad to know I eat phytoplankton every time I swim in the ocean), and hot (the calendar may beg to differ but no way it's actually fall here). Somehow, I found enough energy to go to SAE's Pirates On the Moon party when we got back. Here's me and one of my fellow field tripper's and sorority sister Tatum about to enter the party.

It was quite a jam-packed week, but anything else would be somewhat of an anomaly here. Now, onto the next one!
