Célia: Friends for Life

Meet Célia:

This is our personal hairdresser at Holger. From fishtail braids to double dutch braids, she's your girl. This 22-year-old French student has stolen our hearts with her kindness. From making an AMAZING rainbow cake for Nancy's birthday to disapproving our self-depreciating jokes, Célia is always there to lift up anyone's mood and make you feel special. HOWEVER, do not be fooled, this Parisian is also 100% diva and attitude when necessary. You should see her hair flip! She parts her hair to the side and flips it with a single whip of the head, then she raises a single eyebrow and gives you the death glare. #VictoriaSecretModel? It is so awesome when she does that, but also terrifying.

One of my favorite things about Célia is that she is always my party buddy when we have papers to write, we come home super early together and it is awesome! I can always depend on her to come home with me at a decent time. She encourages me to ride my bike and is always keeping an eye out for me when we ride together. One time she stopped and waited for me to find my balance when getting on my bike and I took so long, the rest of the group left without us. They didn't even notice that I'd fallen back in the group, except for Célia. The best part? She was sooooo nice about the situation. I felt so embarrassed to be holding back bike traffic and at the same time so infuriated with my inability to get back on my bike! Célia, however, was cool, calm and collective for me. I remember her just saying, "Ana, it's okay! Just take your time, nobody cares. I can wait for you!" Ahhh that was so sweet.

My favorite Célia moment, however, came when we were hanging out outside one cold winter night. She was smoking her cigarette when all of a sudden she broke out into the cutest dance I have ever witnessed. I started laughing, prompting an explanation from her. Smiling back at me she told me that she has a secret dance she likes to do randomly but only her closest friends have seen it, and now that I had seen it, I was one of her closest friends. I was so overwhelmed by the pure joy of having her declare me a close friend. It dawned on me just how close we all were in such a short period of time.

Célia, you too are one of my closest friends, and you will be seated in the Holger table at my wedding some day. I cannot wait to come see you in Paris and have you in Georgia. I love you soooo much!

The Basics Of The United Nations

As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101

227
WikiMedia

For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.

What would Wine Wednesdays be without wine? Grab a bottle of red and a bottle of white so that you have some variety. If you feel like splurging, get a bottle of Rosé too.

Her Campus

I remember freshman year like it was just yesterday. I remember frantically walking to my first class with my highlighted map of campus in hand trying to get there early to get a front row seat. I remember learning that college exams are very different from high school ones. Studying the night before an exam just doesn’t cut it like it used to. Through the good, bad and the ugly of my freshman year, I knew everything was going to be OK because I was only a freshman. I didn’t know any better! It was only going to get easier right?

August was a long month. This year, it was probably my longest month. It felt never ending. The end of the month felt so far away.
