5 Things

This week has been....rough. Classes started last week, but this week, things actually started. I've had TONS of home work. I have hours of drawing homework almost everyday. I'm just starting to get used to ECU, and it's hard. I cannot wait to go home, but I honestly do love it here. Here's what I was up to this week:

After I posted last week's five things, Kayla picked me up at my dorm and surprised me with some birthday goodies! Flowers, a ring, starbucks, a cute shirt, and a cupcake!

And since my family couldn't be with me on my birthday, they sent me beautiful flowers!

On Sunday, my family came down for the day and we ate Mellow Mushroom.

College isn't all fun....

Missing my little baby

Drawing for the Interior Designer and Interior Design Fundamentals Lab are going to kill me....

Here are this weeks 5 things!

1 - Yik Yak// There's this new app called Yik Yak. I had no idea about it until I moved in here at ECU. Some girls in my dorm were talking about how my dorm (an all girls, Freshman dorm) was the center of attention on it. There were tons of rumors on it such as how our dorm was hit by a plane, there was a naked girl running around the halls, there was a fight on the fourth floor, etc. It's pretty interesting and entertaining. It is filtered by your location, so I see everything everyone is yaking at ECU. You can download it at the app store!

2 - All About That Bass// I heard this song a few weeks ago on the radio and I fell in love with it. I love the message behind it. It's about time there's a song about body positivity. However, there is some flack that has come about because of this song. People seem to think that it's trashing skinny girls, which I don't think it is. I think it's about loving who you are, and saying that you know what, no, I'm not skinny and I won't be, so if that's what you want, you'll have to go somewhere else. And I think that's amazing.

3 - Preserve// Preserve is a new business from our favorite Gossip Girl - Blake Lively. A huge portion of the profits go to children in need, they get things such as a meal, a blanket, and a warm hoodie for winter. When I heard about this, I couldn't wait to check it out. The items are extremely pricey, especially for a college girl on a budget. But all of the products are beautifully crafted and unique. It's definitely worth a look.

4 - Criminal Minds// I have a confession to make. I'm completely obsessed with Criminal Minds. Ever since I moved in, the only thing our tv is on is the ion station, which almost always plays Criminal Minds in the afternoons into the nights, and I swear I've never gotten into a show quite like this. If you've never watched it, please go and watch it, I'm sure you won't regret it!

5 - Visiting Home// I've only been at ECU for 2 weeks but I just can't stay away from home anymore! I'm visiting home for the weekend. I'm super excited to sleep in my own bed, hang out with my family, take a shower with a shower head (yes, my dorms don't have shower heads), not where shower shoes, and do nothing but snuggle with my little baby Luna.

What are your 5 things for this week?

What you missed this week:


  1. I love Preserve, but most especially because I love Blake!!!! I still need to listen to "All About The Bass" but I have heard several people's opinions about it. I guess it's time I form my own!

  2. I love All About that Bass! It's my feel good song at the moment. :)

    I'm glad college is treating you well, and the homework will get better, I promise!

  3. All About the Bass is a great song, and I love the video too! It sounds like you're doing great in college, it is a lot of work, but it feels great when you get all your work for the day done! :) Those flowers are beautiful!
