snappy chocolate

This entire school year I continued to say that I was going to study in coffee shops on the weekends. Mostly for the chill vibes, partly to get off campus, but also for the non-burnt cafeteria coffee. 
Somehow, I managed to never make it to a coffee shop to study. I think it has something to do with the fact that on the weekends I stayed in bed all day due to exhaustion from the night before. College scenes ya feel? 
However, finals week has quickly approached so my production levels have halted. Like I actually can’t get anything school related done. I started packing my dorm room just to avoid opening my text book. I chatted with my friends for 4 hours yesterday (how on Earth do I have that much to say) in order to not study. I just can’t think about Astro-Physics right now, ok? 

So anyways, my friend and I bussed to this really cool street near our school because there is this AMAZING coffee shop that we’re obsessed with. 
We decided we needed to try to get some work and studying done and sitting in an inspiring coffee shop would totally do the trick. 
We were wrong. As I type this my friend is on Tumblr watching “the longest fall in history” and I just got done having a conversation with someone who works here about how “snappy” their chocolate bars are. When the weather is nice and the company is great, school takes second place. 
Long story short, I might fail my Stars and Galaxies class but at least I know how “snappy” and full of flavor Mast Brother’s Chocolate bars are.

stress relief

Finals week is quickly approaching and my stress levels are quickly rising. 

However, recently, Keurig reached out to me to see if we were interested in reviewing one of their brewers and I had to sit down when I read the email because the pure shock and happiness factor made me feel faint-y. 

Coffee in college is no joking matter. The dining hall constantly runs out because us college kids are addicted. Literally. Coffee is the gold of college campuses. 

Having my own supply of coffee in my dorm room sounded like a dream, and the fact that Keurig could make my dream a reality was just absolutely 100% amazing. Words literally can't do it justice. I'm actually sitting on cloud nine as I sip my coffee and write this post. 

The best part about the Keurig 2.0 is the fact that it fits in my dorm room, right on my desk. It's a cute, bright, little addition to my room that I couldn't imagine not having. If you're about to go to college or know someone that is, I HIGHLY recommend taking a Keurig with you. Not only will you be happier, but you will make friends just owning one of these things... especially during finals week. Take it from a pro.

My freshman year is coming to an end., and I’m sitting in my dorm room after a long day of classes writing this post. I seriously don’t even know where to begin. 

When I got my acceptance letter to CU Boulder I didn't realize how much my life would change. I didn’t realize how many amazing people I would meet, how many amazing opportunities I would have, how many stories I would live. 

When I moved into my dorm room I didn’t realize that this little 18 by 18 box could ever feel so homey, I didn’t realize how close I would become with my hall mates, I didn't realize how many memories would be stashed away in my room. 

When I met the girl at a meeting on the first day of school, I didn’t realize she would become my future roommate and one of my best friends. When I was on crutches and met a guy in my dorm also on crutches, I had no idea he would be visiting me this summer. When I met the girl in high school who happened to live in the same dorm as me, I had no idea how close we could ever become. 

When I went to my first class I had no idea how much I would learn, how stressed I could be, and how little I like group projects. I also had no idea how inspiring classes could be. 

I am so lucky to have had the first year college experience that I have had. There have, of course, been some downs, but the good days most definitely outweigh the bad days. I can’t even begin to express all of the moments that I will now treasure as memories. My heart is full of happiness as I look back on the best days of my life so far. Seriously.
