A Year in the Life of a College Sophomore: Snapchat Photo Gallery
At the end of the school year last year, I made a post chronicling my freshman year of college entirely in Snapchat pictures. I thought I'd make this a little tradition of mine and do the same now that this year is coming to a close. I can't believe I'm halfway done my college career. I can't say I'm sad about it. In fact, the sooner I'm done, the better, in my opinion. But that's not to say I haven't made some amazing friends and memories-- so I'd like to share some of those with you!
Fall Semester 2017
|I am so thankful that I was able to have a car on campus this year...that|
being said, it definitely came with its fair share of annoyances.
|Maddie and I both started our own radio shows this year which was super fun!|
|Having a car meant getting off campus more and discovering cool|
places like Midtown Scholar Book Store-- which I then of course had to share
with my mom!
|Oh classic college dining-- messing up orders since the beginning of time!|
|Hands down the most exciting part of my sophomore year of college was the|
marriage of my brother and sister in law back in October!!!
|Of course on the eve of his marriage, my brother and I had to spend a couple|
hours scrolling through memes together
|Me with my good boy Blitzen!|
|Seeing Get Out (my first horror movie) with Marina back in the fall|
|Celebrating the 20th birthday of my roomie!|
|They put me in charge of floor managing on live TV...and I must have done a good job|
because that became my permanent job for the rest of the semester!
|Over Christmas break, I got to hang out with my Dad at the Hagerstown Donut Drop|
despite the bitter cold and having to pee the entire time.
J-Term and Spring Semester
|Over J-term I was so excited to learn that my friend Zoe who was taking|
the same class as me loved Kdrama as much as me! We started swapping show
recommendations and the rest is history. This is a favorite quote from "Oh My Ghost"
|Maddie and I seem to take on the big cities together. Last year it was Chicago, this year it was|
Philadelphia (to see BORNS in concert) and later, NYC. What's next?
|There are some of the best thrift shops ever near my college. Sometimes the clothes|
you find at thrift stores is super confusing though...
|This was the year of plants. Rachel and I formed a hardcore plant obsession, amassing|
almost twenty plants. On the downside, we would knock them on the floor
on a regular basis.
|Times Square baby!!! Now every time I watch a movie that takes place in NYC,|
I see things a little differently than I did before.
|Pretty much the best sushi I've ever had. Thanks New York!|
|Having a car on campus means going home for sleepovers with bffs from home.|
|It also means coming back to things like this LOL|
|Winter FINALLY ended and the days got really beautiful.|
|Mom and dad came up for the weekend and we went to Bass Pro Shops, where|
I couldn't help myself but move around the display a little bit to make
the raccoon into a chef.
|Rachel's and my favorite place near campus is Ashcombe Farm and Greenhouse, and now|
that it's spring, they have BUNNIESSSS!!!!!!
Pictures might be worth a thousand words, but videos are worth even more! Here's a little compilation of some videos I took on Snapchat throughout the year too.
I feel like the pictures I took on Snapchat last year were a little more representative of the college experience while these are a bit more random. But that's probably because last year college was so fresh and everything was new, and this year I'm more settled into the college lifestyle, so a lot of the pictures and videos I had were actually taken at home (which is where I tend to want to be). I didn't include as many family/home oriented pictures and videos because they don't necessarily scream "college sophomore year!" but when I think about it, it really was home and family that defined this year of college for me. Being away from home has really just helped me to realize how much I love my home. That's the biggest thing I've learned this year. And that's why I'm so excited for Friday, when I get to finally go home to my family and friends!!!! Yahoo!!!
