Day to day

I thought I would take some time to give you a peek inside my day to day life. And wow talk about a dirty computer screen, I will be cleaning that as soon as I am finished here! The first quarter of college is treating me pretty well. I am loving my Swedish class! I am taking basic first year Swedish and I love it. My teacher is awesome and I just feel like I am really understanding the language. I would recommend that everyone take a foreign language in college, you will learn so much more than you did in high school. And at least for me it makes way more sense. 
My photography classes are super interesting and I am learning a lot but I am not sure it is what I want to major in anymore. Before this quarter started I was sure I wanted to major in Photomedia. But now I am thinking I want to do more commercial photography which is definitely not what the program here at the UW focuses on. I also really like teaching the freshman seminar class which I am instructing this quarter so I am looking into education and history more as a possible double major so I could be a history teacher. See my mind is all over the place. Problems of the college student. 
As you can see I decorated my room dorm for Halloween. I actually just printed out coloring pages and colored them with crayons. It feels good to be a kid again for a minute. And I am definitely all about being festive so this was an easy way to get into the holiday spirit. My friends and I are also going to crave pumpkins soon which will be fun! Another thing that brightens my little dorm room is this orchid my roommate bought for our table. It is so pretty huh? And it definitely a little piece of nature right here in my room. 
I have also been enjoying Skyping Clark recently. See, there is no wifi in the buildings where they live so in order for us to Skype he had to get a hot spot for his cell phone. Well he got one at the beginning of October. I think that we have Skyped almost everyday since then. Who ever invented Skype was a genius. But I am sure all you other girls in long distance relationships don't need to be told that! Talking to him is something that I look forward to everyday. 

What is something you enjoying doing everyday during your basic day to day life?

  5. Love these photographs! My favourite thing to do in day to day life is listen to music, in my car, at home or on the go. I can't go a day without it.

  6. Looks like a lovely college! I actually originally went to college for Photography at a big school but left when I realized I didn't love doing it commercially as I thought I would, and that all the careers I wanted to do were ones that were more entrepreneurial.
    Don't be afraid to take a little time off if you're not positive - sometimes it's the best thing instead of graduating with a degree in something you hate!

    Good luck! Your photos are cute:)

  8. How exciting about your Swedish class, it's always more fun when you get to study a language more in depth. (It's hard to do that in high school, even in my forth year class, I still learned way more Spanish in mexico.) And good luck with your photography and your major, it's always hard to decide right of that bat which way you want to go.

    (And thank you for your sweet comment, I've been a long time follower and lurker, but I've always been super lazy about commenting. Pretty sad, I know.)
