6 things that I think might happen at my high school reuinion

1. I won’t know anyone there. Maybe this is a real worry for some people, but my graduating class was 94 people, and I most of us were in school together since first grade.

Hey friends, it’s a giveaway! See, I’m turning 22 in a couple weeks. And a few of my other friends at the Her Campus Blogger network have birthdays and such around this time as well. So instead of demanding that you buy us presents (my idea, which no one else seemed to like), we’re going(…)

i’m not getting anything done and it is awesome

I’ve been beating myself up this winter break and it’s got to stop. I rarely wake up before noon. I lie around in bed looking at dresses on websites for no reason because I don’t need to buy any dresses. I play Civilization 5. I eat Lucky Charms. I stay up too late, interact with(…)
