Hello from a snow day here in Charlottesville, cancelled midterms, and Spring (hopefully) on the horizon for the South! FINALLY! I'm less than 24 hours away from a train that will take me back North--and I'm guiltily realizing that the last time I posted, a train was taking me home for Christmas Break. My how the time flies when in college. It's scary to think that I've got only two months left of my first year at UVa. Am I seriously 1/4 of the way done with college?!?!

And yes, these here pictures were taken right when I got home. We went and got our tree immediately (I also got a haircut, SURPRISE!) and took some pictures while we were at it! So in the spirit of celebrating Christmas joy all year round I figured, why not post these pics? :) 

Although I'm sad my first year is nearly over, I am excited to tell you that starting in May I'll be resuming regular posting because I'M GOING HOME FOR SUMMER! I have some cool things in the mix for this summer including potentially studying abroad, research on the Jersey Shore, a music festival in Delaware (Firefly, anyone?), some fun trips back to Charlottesville, and more. I'm busy and happy as ever here at UVa, but it's hit me hard recently how much I do love going home (and how much I miss dear old Wear Abouts).

To get a bit sentimental, Wear Abouts has been a part of my life for three and half years now. It has afforded me SO many opportunities; not only did I write main essays for college about it, but it's allowed me to score a media gig at a major music festival, and given me practice in photography and writing. My blog will forever hold a special place in my heart--and I may be almost 20, but I'm not ready to give up this pursuit yet. So don't think I'm leaving y'all any time in the near future! More posts very soon :)

Hello from possibly my longest hiatus ever--and apologies, too! I am finally back home after a (somewhat mentally tolling) first semester at the University of Virginia. I absolutely love it, of course, and wouldn't trade my time at UVa for anything. I'm already so excited for my classes next semester and what's in store for me when I return for the Spring semester!

In the mean time, as I try to organize my thoughts, enjoy these pretty pictures of the Lawn (which is a Unesco World Heritage Site, I might add, the only US university to have such an honor bestowed upon it). The two other girls are two of my best friends (AND FUTURE ROOMMATES) at school. Isn't it so pretty with everything all lit up for the holidays?

You can also find me at 52project.weebly.com, which I've been keeping up with religiously. I've only got 2 weeks left of the year!


**ALSO**
In regards to my 52 project I must ask for your help. In 2 weeks, the project will end, and a new year will begin. I've already done a 365 project (taking a picture everyday) and a 52 project (a poem every week) in the past 2 years. 

What suggestions do you have for me for 2015? Any project ideas that will last me the year?

HAPPY NOVEMBER! I've been at school for over two months and just this week I've FINALLY gotten around to taking outfit pictures. And I couldn't have taken them at a more beautiful time--the trees in Charlottesville are bursting with color right now! The leaves have started to fall so soon they'll be bare, but for now I'm enjoying my favorite season in the prettiest place :) These pictures were taken on the winding road right behind my dorm--I think they came out pretty well!

Something I've been collecting lots of lately is green jackets. I have probably 4 army green colored jackets, and all have been with me less than three months! One of you lucky readers will get a jacket identical to this one thanks to Others Follow!
