Barnard College.

Barnard College has caught my eye for a number of reasons..

Barnard is an all women's college in New York City. It is partnered with Columbia University and is like a part of Columbia. 

-"a small school feel with big school resources and incorporates both campus and city life"
-"on a (gated) main campus, the school maintains and 'independent spirit' while providing a 'nurturing environment' and its partnership with a larger research university gives it the 'best of both worlds' and affords its students the opportunities, course options, and resources that many colleges don't have"
-"The administration gets thumbs-up nearly across the board for their accessibility and compassion for students" 
-"Life at Barnard is probably sixty to seventy-five percent academic and around twenty-five to forty percent free."

So that is that. There's something there that I really want to be a part of. (New York, New York).

Oh. P.S. Lauren Graham went there. Yup. :)

Choir Tour Debrief: New Orleans Day 1

 Here are my three best friends.....weary from the looooong bus ride. 

 I love this photo. 
 Awesome street art that I probably wasn't supposed to take a picture of. 
 These are my best friends. They are intimidating in sunhats. 

 My cousin, our fearless choir director and me.
 My pal Walt and I had matching pants! hehe
 The four of us at dinner. We've been the fearsome foursome (what our choir director calls us) since 6th or 7th grade. :)
P.S. Best dinner of the trip: shout-out to Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro in New Orleans.
Fancy shoppes where all we can afford is a mirror pic.
I didn't appreciate New Orleans as much as I could have while I was there, but once I left I felt a pointed sadness. I love walking around and always hearing jazz or the fact that there's a flowerbox on every window. Even the graffiti was charming to me. So, I will be going back someday. I feel like every place I go on choir tour is just a trip to first get my feet wet and that I'll trek back another time and really see and really enjoy the city.  Add it to the bucket list.

Time is on my Side. Yes it is.

Have you heard of the movie "Not Fade Away"?

I treated myself to a movie last night and watched it. I really liked the music and the feel of the 60s was very authentic. However, there was no ending. I think in the past 2 years I have yet to pick out a movie to watch that has a solid conclusion. Ending or not (not) I liked it. It kept me entertained even through out the weird. 

If you don't know, it's about a band in the 60s from New Jersey who's trying to make it big. So, there ya go. 
P.S. I want that girl's hair...

Maxi Dresses.

Do you like Maxi Dresses? I never was a big fan until a few years ago. However, I was still unconvinced that I could ever pull it off. But then...
It all changed. 
I tried on a really cute maxi dress at Belk and fell in love. Unfortunately, all of the cutest dresses end up costing the most money, so I was unable to purchase the dress. :(
Here are some cute dresses I like. 
Sold Out at Ruche.

Expensive at Ruche

and the dress that started my yern for a maxi dress
Buy it for me here :)
