Yes, I'm A College Girl Who Dresses Up Every Day And No, It's Not That Big Of A Deal

Shockingly, I don't wear a t-shirt and shorts to class every day.

If you walk through any college campus you'll see multiple girls dressed in Nike shorts, baggy t-shirts, and leggings. While that is easy and nothing wrong with dressing that way I just don't.

What does get under my skin are the people who constantly ask why are you dressed up, why are you dressy, or what do you have planned for today.

As a girl in high school, it was rare I dressed sloppily to class. That being because my high school had a no leggings or sweatpants policy. So that just transferred over to college for me.

Also with college, I have always had the idea that I need to hold myself to a professional standard, or to a higher standard to impress the professors who will hopefully one day write me a recommendation letter for a job.

Now have I dressed up every day of every year I have been in college? Heck no. Why? Because some days I just haven't felt like it. This year is a little different though.

During the summer I was given a job offer. My job requires me to come here straight after school. Now do I have to be dressed to the nines for this job every day, no, but I do have to look presentable.

In my workplace, Nike shorts and baggy t-shirts are not presentable. Also this year I am in my senior level classes. These are the classes that are going to help me in my career.

These teachers are the teachers who are going to help me in my career as well. I want to show them that I know how to dress professionally.

To me personally, I feel like if I don't dress like this almost every day it's going to be hard for me to change my wardrobe when I get in the workplace or the "real world".

So just because I have on a cute outfit and not a t-shirt and shorts doesn't mean I have to have a place I'm going to. It just means that I want to better myself, but that doesn't mean the people who don't dress like me won't succeed. I just like to dress this way.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
