It's been quite a whorl wind of a past few days but I can say that it has been such a fun, exciting experience. Yesterday I went and explored downtown which is pretty much all I could ever dream of. An ice cream shop, popcorn shop, indie clothing stores, street lamps...sigh, so dreamy! I've been taking my camera around with me everywhere but I've been too shy to whip it out and take pictures. Here are some from downtown yesterday though, as well as, some pictures of some food I've eaten lately. It's pretty darn delicious eating here if you ask me!
Speaking of food, I really don't understand how people gain the freshman fifteen...I have never walked so much in my LIFE and my calves are so sore! I mean, maybe it's just my campus, but I feel like between all of the walking to get places + being on the fourth floor of my building (and using the steps!) that I'll be doing the opposite of gaining fifteen pounds.
While I'm on the topic of weight though, I've been meaning to tell you something rather disheartening that happened a week or so ago. A company contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out a sample pair of their jeans- I of course said yes! After my positive response, they sent me some images of ones I could pick from and then told me to order my size from 1 to 7. I emailed them back, asking if they had anything bigger than a 1 to 7 and they never even responded. I just think it's really crappy of them that they wouldn't have any bigger sizes because 1) my feelings were hurt 2) EVERYONE deserves to have their size carried. The average woman is a size 12 here in the United States and to be told that a company only carries up to a size 7 isn't representing all body types. But that's just my stubborn opinion, anyways.
Anywho, I'll hopefully be back soon with outfit pictures or something; thank you for all of the kindness and support! ❤
With much love, Lauren.
