Dorm Reveal!

I've been moved in for a whole week and I've finally got the room set up! I decided to make use of the extra bed (yes, I have two beds in my single dorm room. I know... I'm spoiled rotten) and turn it into a couch/sitting area with some fun pillows. My college kind of gave me two of everything, so you'll notice that I have a makeup desk, a studying desk, and two wardrobes and dressers. In my defense, one dresser is empty.
I love my dorm room, and I hope you do too!

My two beds. The pink one is where I sleep, the plaid/patchwork one is my couch.
My two desks. The left one is makeup (also food storage) and the right one is for studying. The file cabinet is where I store my makeup!

Close up on my makeup area. It's not the most glamorous, but I love it. It's hard to tell, but it's super functional. I'll film a video sometime showing it in action.

My reading area. I like to curl up with my American Lit textbook here.
Terrible picture. This is the hallway to my door, where my two wardrobes are located. All my hanging clothes are in one, and my shoes and sweaters are in the other. 
Another wonky photo, sorry. I turned my AC unit into my personal photo board.
A shot of the room from my bed. I'm just trying to give you an idea of the size. It's pretty huge.    
This is the only shot I'll give you of my bathroom because it's really not very exciting. I didn't end up needing a shower curtain (glass door on my shower) and it's just a bathroom. Sorry my dish station is on the floor. I meant to take that out of the photo!
So this is my room!
I've absolutely settled in and I adore Queens. I could not be happier here, and that's not just because my dorm room is perfect for me. I love this campus and these people. This is the best place for me and I belong here.

Glee Live 3D Movie Premiere

I've never done a midnight premiere in my life, but you all know I'm a huge Glee fan. So when they announced they were releasing a 3D concert movie, my best friend Jenny and I decided we'd go all out. Midnight premiere, costumes, singing, everything. It was a total blast.
First of all, if you like Glee, you need to see this. It's on in theaters for 2 weeks so go NOW. It's awesome. Part concert, part Glee characters, part documentary about the fans. It's heartwarming and wonderful and reminds you why we all love Glee so much.
It also happened to be my first ever 3D movie, so that was a lot of fun! I loved the 3D aspects and was glad they made it in 3D. Stay after for the credits, by the way!
I dressed up as guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury because I already have red hair and a closet full of cardigans! Jenny dressed up as Quinn complete with Born This Way "Lucy Caboosey" Shirt. So cute. It was fun and silly and slightly ridiculous but a lot of the midnight premiere-goers were dressed up so that was great.
Here are our pictures. We took a lot of them in the car because we were rushed. The car was stopped, and I wasn't driving!!
My Emma Pilsbury Costume.
Emma and Quinn. Or Hannah and Jenny.
In the theater!!

(Tired, happy, excited!) Gleeks!
Overall it was a really great night. We enjoyed the movie and I can't wait to go back with my mom to see it again at a much more normal hour. Go see Glee Live in 3D now!

Hair Help!

I have a dilemma. I like change, but I also love my long hair.
My haircut is this Wednesday and here are the cuts I'm considering:

I love Dianna Agron's short hair. It's gorgeous this length but I'm not sure mine does so well short. Last time I had it this length it was a TOTAL pain.  I do LOVE how versatile this cut is though.

Jayma Mays looks lovely here, but again I'm not sure my hair does as well this length. I would be losing probably 3-4 inches to get to that length!
I could get bangs again, but I JUST grew them out. Most likely I'll just get this all trimmed and my layers cut... boring. I want your input though!!
This is my current length with my natural texture:
Comment and help me decide what to do!!

Fresh Start

It's August! I know, I'm highly original, starting this blog post off that way.
I've been dreaming of this month since December when I decided to take a semester off of school.
For those of you who are new to my blog, and thus my life, here's the backstory. I started college in August of 2010 at The University of North Carolina at Asheville and became very ill. I have Crohn's disease and ultimately had so many complications with my health that in December,   I chose not to go back to school for my second semester. I had a miserable first semester at school and decided that I would use the time to research transferring.
I knew it would be Queens. I loved it from the minute I set foot on campus. I had written it off my senior year of high school because it was too close to home (a mere 15 minutes!) but after my semester away that was no longer a problem in my mind.
I simply fell in love. 
The only heartbreaking thing about it was that I had to wait until now. It's finally August. Only a few more weeks. It's here, it's real and it's actually happening.

A few things to get me in the school spirit: 
My mom has a sweater similar to this from her time at Michigan State that I LOVE. I'm not in love with the logo options, so I'm thinking of buying my own navy sweater and getting it embroidered the way I want it done!
Zoya Goldie Polish- Perfect for Basketball games!
