Thank you all for the kind words of encouragement on my last post! Thankfully things are getting better and working themselves out. Got my new ID card taken care of today, my computer shipped out, and I already got one of my credit cards back. So thankful!
Being back at Kent is wonderful. Every new semester, whether it's coming back for the spring or the fall I always am so unnecessarily worried and nervous. I fret about everything from classes, to friendships and all in between. Every time things turn out just fine though and I fall right back into the rhythm of life here; it always feels like I never even left. As soon as I step back on campus I'm reminded why I chose this place to be my school and why I fell in love with it. Still have as much love for Kent State as when I first came! The thing I love about being here is the feeling that anything can happen. I feel like I actually am LIVING when I'm here. I feel like I'm better approaching my dreams and making them happen. And strangely enough, I always feel much more motivated when I'm here. Not just academically, but in a social aspect, working aspect, and faith aspect. I hope that all of my future places of residency have this same positive effect on my life that Kent does!
One thing I really notice when I'm at Kent versus at home is my style does this weird change. It gets much more urban and relaxed versus the second I step back home I become this girly, vintage fanatic. I think it just changes so much because of my needs at both places. Going to class all day and walking everywhere I have to strive for comfort and something accessible. Delicate vintage garments and thin fabrics like I wear at home just don't work. Although I would prefer to wear all vintage things all the time, it's just not practical while I'm up here and I come up with much more toned down outfits like this one.
Enough of my babbling tonight! I will talk to all of you soon. Hope all is well with each and every one of you! ♥
With much love, Lauren.
