Tomboy or Girly-Girl?

I can be both.

Tomboy or Girly-Girl?

Having two different personalities is a good thing until it comes down to choosing which one I should be, the tomboy or the girly-girl.

Back home, I'm treated like one of the boys. I'm asked to go mudding, go fishing, go sit at a football game, and I enjoy it. A lot. I like wearing jeans, a long sleeve, and a hat out to go pick up food from the grocery store and it be normal. I like wearing my boots out to go help papa feed cows and my crocs are my first go to shoe when in a hurry as well.

But that isn't the case in Norfolk. If I wore my crocs, somebody would ask "what're those?" But where I live, if you didn't have Crocs then it should be on your Christmas list. I wear my boots with my dresses and get asked where I'm from because not many people wear cowboy boots. Lord help if I wear my hair up with a hat on. I'd probably be known as the girl who dresses like a boy. So I keep it elegant with my monogram boots (because in the South if it doesn't walk, it gets monogrammed) so I have a little Southern in me.

It's a lot different when the boys look as you as a dude until it's okay to dress up and then it's like I'm the most gorgeous person who walked this Earth. It's as if WOAH GIRL YOU LOOK GOOD is being screamed at you when they see me looking all nice. Especially in Norfolk. Since most guys are used to me being in sweats and a big t-shirt without even caring. The guys are very surprised when

There's plenty of reasons why I have two different personalities because I love living in the country but I've gotten fond of living in the city as well. Even though I will never truly leave 'home' I am thankful for the differences of being able to dress up and go casual.

Being in Norfolk has taught me many things, but one of those things was learning how to apply makeup. I have never applied makeup before college, so when learning how to apply it, I was completely lost. Nonstop acting some of my sorority sisters for help on how to even put on eyeliner. I have never truly cared to apply makeup, so learning how to apply it was completely different for me. Back home, it's throwing my hair in a bun or braiding it to keep it out of my face so I could go fish or ride four wheelers. The only makeup worn is mud, from it slinging everywhere around the four wheeler.

Things are totally different between the country and the city and I am so thankful that I can rock both looks of being a girly girl and a tomboy at all times! Even though most of the times I would much rather wear cowboy boots than heels.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
