Changing It Up

I have made a decision to make a change to my blogger template. I am also in the process of considering a name change. My URL will still remain the same, but the name 'College, The Golden Years' may or may not be changing. Just thought you all should know so you aren't surprised in the next few weeks when things look a little different!
Until next time..

Useless Updates | Turning 21 & Lots of Coffee!

It has been awhile since I last posted and I sincerely apologize. School is finally getting the best of me but I a persevering! Anyways.. I am back with another Useless Updates post filled with lots of fun, and useless information :) 

So to start off, I TURNED 21!

Although there's nothing that different about being 21.. other than being able to legally drink I feel exactly the same! I had such a good birthday though, good friends, good food, good drinks and an all around good time! I'll share some more photos later in the week but I wanted to recap it a little bit now.

Lately I have been going on some pretty awesome coffee adventures with some great new friends of mine! 

This is Krissy! We went to Lola Coffee and hung out for an hour just talking about everything! We had a lot of fun, as you can see from the picture above!

This is Karley! We've gone out to Coffee twice, the first time to Sip Coffee & Beer and the second time to Songbird Coffee & Tea House. We talked SO much the first time about anything we could think of, but the second time we just really enjoyed each others company and it was great! 

This is Katy! She is such a laid back person and you get a really good vibe from her just by sitting next to her! We were both a little tired and didn't talk much but we had good cups of tea and a nice brunch to go along with it! I'm actually getting coffee with her tomorrow and I can't wait!
I love going to new coffee shops so much that I am starting a short series on my Youtube channel called Coffee Break - HERE is the first video!  
Speaking of coffee.. Last but not least I have been going to my friend Alec's for coffee every Tuesday & Thursday. He has an amazing thing going on in his apartment. He makes great coffee for a great community of people! 

I'll definitely be writing more about Alec and the business he is starting up soon, so be on the lookout for that!
That's all I have for now so until next time..

21 Things I've Learned in 21 Years!

On October 10th of 1994 I was born and just three days ago I turned 21! I'll be making a post about my actual birthday festivities but I thought I would share some things I've learned in these 21 years of living! As each year passes (so quickly), I find myself thinking about lessons  I've learned in the pass year and all the memories I have made. With that said, here are the 21 things I have learned.
  1. If you want it, go for it & don't let anyone stop you (except for maybe God lol)
  2. Love yourself first, always.
  3. Never put your happiness in someone else's hands, you will be disappointed.
  4. Don't take people for granted & never forget those who are there for you.
  5. Although it's okay to recognize when it's time to let certain people out of your life.
  6. Take mental health/personal days. You need time by yourself.
  7. Be nice to everyone you meet. Everyone is fighting their own battles & you don't want to be the person that pushes them over their edge.
  8. It's okay to not know what you want.
  9. Make your friends and family priority in your life.
  10. Put down technology and enjoy the world around you.
  11. Little actions go a long way.
  12. Take care of your body, you only get one.
  13. Spread love, not hate. No one likes a bully.
  14. Offer help to those who can benefit from it.
  15. Time doesn't define friendship.
  16. Don't let go of your imagination just because you become an adult, it's an important part of who you are.
  17. You have to drink water everyday.
  18. Budget your money. Your wallet will thank you later.
  19. Times are tough but the support around you is much stronger.
  20. Trust your intuition. if something doesn't feel right, it usually isn't.
  21. 21 years goes by so fast. So make the most of your life.
I can't wait to see what I learn in this next year!

Until next time..

Summer Ends Music Fest 2015!

Two weekends ago I went with Imani to the Summer Ends Music Festival and it was amazing!! We had so much fun and the line up was incredible of course. 

This corn was the best corn ever and I wish I remembered the name of the place because it was that good. Moving on to the music though, because that's why we're here right?

Crappy phone photos because I couldn't bring my beautiful camera with me but J. Cole and Iration were the highlight of my time there. Their performances were SO amazing and I definitely enjoyed myself!

I really hope the line-up for next year is as good as this years because I would love to go again!

Until next time..
