I have to say right now that picking a college has to be one of the most stressful events ever! I was pretty excited to see the letters coming in, but when it comes to actually picking one and depositing my money, it is honestly pretty scary. I know I always have the option to transfer if I don't like it there, but ... arrr... it's just difficult. I really wanted to go to college in a different state, but I know Uconn is a really good school! (and the price for in state students is unbeatable!) I think I've narrowed it down though to Pace, Uconn, and Umass Amherst. I just need to visit the other 2 schools (which I should have done.. last year I know) and make my final pick.
I have to say, I had spent quite a bit of time trying to find reasons to hate Uconn and my main fact that I have going against it is that it is in the middle of nowhere and that when I want to live off campus or explore the area, I would have trouble doing so. However, everything else seems to be a positive and when I went to visit, I was upset about the size of the dorms, but I actually got accepted into Uconn's honor's program which means bigger dorms!! I didn't expect to be accepted at all because all the averages for rank, grades, and test scores for entering the program are higher than mine by quite a bit actually so.. I'm thinking my essay pulled me through here? Anyways, Uconn is a top choice for me now and ohh gosh, it's going to be so hard to make my final decision.
Speaking of school work, this is what I did over my very long 4 day break! Well.. I actually worked on it on Monday and Tuesday, but it was an essay with the book Lord of the Flies and 2 psychology experiments. This thing took so much brainpower and I am so ready for my English class to be over! I really love my class and my teacher, but the work in that class is ridiculous! I feel like it is a mix of busy work on top of essays lol!
While on my long extended break weekend, I also took to do some organizing and came across these three adorable items! I actually received the first two items from my friend a year ago for Christmas. It's a set of body butters and a makeup/tool kit. I found these body butters at the perfect time because I was about to go out and get one for my legs. Now I don't have to because I have 3 unopened ones! Yay!
The cuticle oil was won in a giveaway also about a year ago. My sister has been putting this to good use recently and she says that it really works! I just tried some of this on my nails last week and I agree that it works really well.. especially for the winter! Plus a little of this goes a long way so I'm thinking this little tube will last us all winter!
Another thing that I started using this weekend was this macadamia natural oil no tangle brush from Amazon. My sister who is obsessed with beauty, heard numerous reviews from beauty gurus about this hair brush. It's suppose to detangle your hair without pulling or hurting it. She found the brush on Amazon for under $10 and the brush even came with a deep repair mask and some macadamia oil. So far, the results of the brush are looking pretty good! It does detangle my hair and I find that I don't lose as much when I brush. It doesn't pull at all. The only negative I have is the way it is shaped.. it's a bit odd and chunky, but the results are really nice so the $10 is worth it for me!
Another thing I received over my break was this adorable J'adore Voxbox!! I can't believe I was actually selected to receive this one! I saw pictures of this pink box prior to being notified that I was selected and when I heard that the box I was selected to receive was this one, I got super excited!! I mean what else is better than hearts and the color pink??!!
I leave you guys with this cute college of me and my little cream last night! She is literally the love of my life =)
College Vs High school? Which did you enjoy more? (asking out of pure curiosity!)
