My first article for The Colonnade was published in this Friday's issue- on the front page! Pretty exciting, to say the least. It was a great experience writing the article, although stressful at moments. I can't wait to pick up a second writing assignment this coming Monday. Although I enjoyed writing about Theta Chi, the newest fraternity coming to campus, I think I want to give feature writing a try this week!
So you might be curious as to why 'dates' is in the title of this post. Well, I went on one and further proved to myself that I'm most likely the most particular single lady on the face of the earth. I'm stubborn, stuck in a rut of crushing on the 'artsy-prepster', and I refuse to settle for Mr. Right Now, ever. After much deliberation, I've decided that I'd much rather walk this earth alone than become a serial dater of the wrong guys. Although this weekend proved to be bust for my dating life, at least a new acquaintance came out of it.
One of my favorite bloggers and writers, Shallon Lester, has a dating column, "Single-ish" on Glamour.com that I simply cannot get enough of! Lester's witty chronicles of dating are both humorous and relatable, which has helped me feel not-so-awkward after a disastrous dinner. Be sure to check out the column this week!
After immensely enjoying my 600-page issue of InStyle, I'm super excited for autumn to arrive. These 90 degree days in Georgia are getting old, fast. I long for tights, boots, and blazers. Heck, even pea coats. One trend that I'm dying to try once the seasons change are knee socks worn with boots. I know it may sound a bit odd, but the outcome looks amazing!
As always, I feel the need to break out my owl accessories as soon as the temperatures drop. There's just something about owls that reminds me of fall!
I love my owlies.
Time to get back to my productive night! I'm hoping to get around to commenting on a bunch of blogs tonight, something I've really missed. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
