Hello there everyone!
Did you all know that Ohio had the most universities out of all of the states?! Perhaps this is the reason why I went on yet another college visit with my parents today (that makes seven!). Where did I check out today? The University of Akron!

I must say I was so impressed and thrilled. Originally I had in mind that I wanted to attend a smaller school, but after visiting places like Kent and Akron I've definitely changed my mind. When going on this tour at first I was scared... but yet really excited. I was scared because I come from such a small, sheltered town and it was a shock to see just 1000 people show up for the tour today. But, the more time I spent at Akron, the better I felt and I realized that it's what I've been searching for all along. A chance to break free. To live my life how I want. To meet new people and see new places. All the thoughts of the possibilities waiting for me make me hardly able to attend high school for one more year... Hopefully the year will fly by. I know my other three years of high school sure have!

Hope you all are doing wonderful <3
With much love, Lauren.

P.S. The dress I'm wearing is actually my homecoming dress from last school year! If you'd like to see how I've restyled it other ways, it's here, here, and here. It's been such a versatile piece in my wardrobe and it was my first ever Modcloth purchase!

P.S.S. I know I should stop wearing this hat... but I just can't!

I decided to comment on this post instead of your newest one because I LOVE that outfit!! It's so pretty! Your dress is adorable!!

I know just how you feel!! I cannot wait to graduate (I graduate next year, as well)!! I am just going to a community college, but I am still super excited to start learning real, applicable stuff that will actually help me to better my life! (I find algebra + biology + chemistry completely useless, and I hate feeling like I'm wasting my time on something I'll never use.)

Thank you so much for the sweet comment on my blog! That's one of the nicest comments I've ever gotten before! I'm so glad to hear that you like my blog so much. I treasure every single one of my readers. <3

Also, I thought I'd give you a heads up that I'm at 91 followers, and when I get to 100 I'm going to have a great giveaway. ;-D

I wish I could pull off the socks and shoes look! You look lovely! Nice dress!!!
That's great about the universities! Sometimes, where you end up is not what you would have expected and it ends up being a brilliant decision! I ended up choosing the university to go to that I just happened to find my flicking open the UCAS book (Uni applications book) and seeing it was in London! I knew nothing about it but ended up going to my first intervewi there adn just loving the feel of it! I was offered a place and I accepted! I still didn't read a prospectus or know anything about the course but it was the best decision I made!
